This Camera is what i expected and whats even better was i got it on sale for $50. I was gonna buy it for the normal price aanyways but the fact that it was on sale when i bought it is even better. I use it for making videos for my public presentations class and also for streaming on TWitch.tv.... It has excellent quality and i like the wide view it gives. If you are not into the wide angle cameras then this may not be for you but im sure there is some way you could adjust it. Im not sure though on that.
Pros: Not too much cost wise compared to most cameras.
Wide View and Clear View
Looks nice on top of my monitor.
It is also able to be put on a stand.
Cons: Nothing really that i have any problems with.
I included a picture of my ugly mug just to show you what a picture on this camera looks like. Also this is low lighting and it looks like i have quite a bit of lights on which is nice!(Excuse the messiness)

I really love these webcams BUT
I really love these webcams BUT... as a warning to others:
If you intend on buying two of these to use at the same time on the same computer... beware.
I got two of these to live stream with two camera angles and I even went through a long chat with Logitech as well. The logitech software that lets you adjust focus, color, white balance, zoom, etc... only works (well) with a single camera at once. I have to plug one webcam in, configure it, then plug in the second one and hope that the software recognizes that one as the Alpha-Webcam so that I can then adjust it while the other holds it's settings.
Unless you actually benefit from it (I would do a lot of testing first), I do not recommend using Auto-Focus with this webcam. In the type of setup we have the webcam is constantly trying to refocus and it can sometimes make the stream un-watchable like you're wearing the wrong prescription of glasses.
I also recommend letting the auto-color and auto-white-balance do it's thing but then once you get it dialed in... turn it off and tweak it a little yourself to find that sweet spot otherwise it will be going crazy trying to constantly adjust the picture "for you". If you want or need this feature then it is pretty cool, though. It's just possible to get a much better picture out of it by manually setting these things.
The picture is GREAT. I would not recommend the on-board microphone for these as they are sub-par but if you've got nothing else they are good compared to other webcam models at this price point. Shots included taken during Facebook Live Stream which is also only streamed at 720p (though these are capable of full 1080).

C920 vs. C615 vs. C525: Direct Comparison
I was able to do a direct side-by-side comparison between three Logitech webcams: the C920, C615, and C525. Here is what I found:
Right away I noticed that the C920 was a superior product - as it should be, considering it is Logitech's flagship webcam at the moment. But my initial impression was that the extra features might not be worth the size and setup tradeoff. There are three things that the C920 does not have:
1) While all three models attach to your computer monitor in about the same way and all three can tilt up and down, only the C525 and C615 can turn side to side. In fact, they can turn around 360 degrees and more. The C920, however, has a threaded tripod mount, as does the C615.
2) The C920 lacks the excellent "fold-and-go" design of the other two models, which makes packing and travelling easy, while protecting the lenses. In contrast, the C920 is much larger and stationary.
3) The C615 comes with a shorter USB cable AND an extension for more versatility. The C920 - like the C525 - comes with only a full length cable (~6'). My wish for all three models is that they come with a detachable USB cable, which would make them all much more portable and easy to carry around, especially in this age when most people travel with at least one or two USB cables.
But when I actually sat down to do some serious comparisons, I realized just how much more advanced the C920 is, most notably in its use of H.264 compression and its autofocus feature.
H.264 is a standard being utilized more and more for video of all sorts, and it makes a huge difference here. Having used all three webcams on the same computer and with the same software, the C920 compresses 1080p video completely while recording and takes about 49MB per 1 minute of recording on the highest settings (720p for one minute takes about 31MB). That uses *.mp4 format.
Meanwhile, the C615 and C525 use *.wmv format and take 99MB and 44MB for one minute of video at 1080p and 720p, respectively. The real problem, though, is that you then have to sit and wait for the video to compress if you are working in 1080.
If you're interested, The C920 has 1 zoom level at 1080 and 4 levels at 720. The C615 has 0 zoom levels at 1080 and about 10 at 720. The C525 has about 10 at 720. All can be used during recording, but the quality involved with the C920 is again far superior.
Also, the autofocus is much better on the C920, with less flickering and light change. You can really get up close and show off your pores and beard growth.
In conclusion, the optics and hardware of the C920 are obviously superior to the others, which are already high quality. If I am using the webcam while highly mobile, then I may opt for one of the others - I might even just settle for the C525 because it's a tiny bit smaller than the C615 and I believe you cannot use the C615 to make 1080p video calling, even if your hotel's Internet service could keep up with the data rate. However, if I am using a webcam at a stationary computer, or am really a videophile, then I definitely want the bigger workhorse.
