Even the best webcams are limited to 1080p while streaming and 720p while Skyping, and claims of high resolution can be a red herring marketing tool—it doesn’t matter if your phone can take 12 megapixel pictures if the camera is garbage, you’re just taking really big, bad pictures—but the c920 has a high-quality camera.
The more recent c922 webcam was meant to replace the c920 in Logitech's line-up, but I'd still recommend the older model over it.
There will probably come a day when the c920 isn't available at all anymore, but until then it's still the best choice.
The c922 can do 60 fps at 1080p instead of just 720p and has a decent built-in background removal tool, but it's otherwise essentially the same fidelty camera as the c920 but at a higher price.
It has 1080p resolution with a large FOV, a sharp image, and a wide angle making everything about its picture look more camera than webcam.
When I did this to the c920, the results were amazing; instead of the blurry, pink blob I was used to seeing, I could make out the details of my fingerprints.
Time and time again, the c920 impressed me not just for the quality of its image in ideal conditions, but its consistent quality in all settings.
Anything cheaper will come with a distracting drop in quality, anything more expensive and you won’t notice enough of an improvement until you start shooting photos or video with a proper camera.
The Logitech c920, and Logitech cameras in general, are really top-notch, but that quality comes at a premium that not everybody wants to pay.
