After researching 19 top webcams and testing six, we think that if you need a webcam for video calls, streaming, or recording, you should get the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. It takes better pictures and video than any of the other models we tested, beating even newer and more-expensive models. It has sharp, 1080p video at 30 frames per second with fast autofocus and quick, accurate auto white balance; it’s simple to install and use; and at around $60 it doesn’t cost much more than lesser budget webcams.

There are a lot of things to like about the Blue Yeti. It’s easy to set up and has a comparably low price next to other microphones with this level of audio quality—and, of course, it sounds great. But its best trait for live streaming is its adaptability. Your distance from a mic and whether or not you are speaking directly towards it can have a massive impact on sound quality, but the Yeti performs well even under less-than-ideal conditions. The foam padding on the bottom of the base didn’t do much to deafen desk vibrations, but the shape and size of the Yeti meant I could generally find a suitable place for it without a hassle. And no matter where I put it, the Yeti performed fantastically.
