Takeaway: Decent for a budget webcam, hi-res but no auto-focus, mic audio a bit grainy.

The webcam has a 5' USB cord and comes with a cleaning cloth and an instruction sheet. Despite its similarity to the Logitech C920, the Besteker 920C has slightly different specs and these cameras are not related nor equivalent. This camera measures 3.5" across, 2.25" high and has a depth of 2.75". On the front is a 1536p max output HD lens, and the camera has built-in stereo microphones on the sides. The body of the camera sits on a ball joint and is rotatable 360 degrees and has about 25 degrees of available tilt. On the bottom of the foot there's a 1/4" thread mounting hole for use with a standard tripod mount. The base under the camera splits open so that you can place the webcam over the top of a monitor or laptop screen. I tested the Besteker camera side-by-side with the Logitech C922.

The settings on the Besteker camera are a little different when using OBS to record. When set to 1920x1080 resolution recording at 30 fps, the cameras displayed a big difference in color. While I think the C922 does a better job at reproducing the colors in this room with natural looking temperature and saturation, this is because it uses Auto-White Balance to account for the lighting in the room. The 920C reproduces actual color with no white balance adjustment. In good lighting (a sunny room, or one with day white lights) the colors of the images are fine, but it struggles a bit in low light settings. The Besteker camera has a slightly wider angle lens than the Logitech C922 and also goes to a higher resolution of 2048 x 1536, though the frame rate is slower and slightly choppier.

The 920C also doesn't have auto-focus and can't do close/macro focus so the best focus range is 3 or more inches from the lens. The camera at 1080p does pretty good with fast movement with its 30 fps frame rate. There are also lower resolution settings available but I don't use them. As for microphone audio quality, the Besteker 920C has a moderate pickup from a distance of 2 feet and some white noise and graininess in the audio.

Overall, the 920C is a decent HD webcam for those on a budget. If you need the extra resolution, it's nice to be able to have higher than 1080p resolution with a wide angle that you can crop down without degrading the image resolution.
