Today I am looking at the meross webcam and specifically comparing it to the gold standard Logitech Brio. The meross webcam is 1080P, connects through USB 2.0, and has a super-wide view comparable to the Logitech Brio. The webcam also has a built-in microphone and is priced below $30 making it an appealing webcam for anyone in need of an external webcam. How does the meross webcam hold up compared to the Logitech Brio? You be the judge.

We’re going to talk about webcams today. We’re going to talk about webcams and specifically a lottery tech webcam versus a very inexpensive webcam. That is from a company that I’ve been using other products from meross.
This is Scott Wyden. Kivowitz a storyteller with a camera talking about all the things photographers like you and I are thinking about. And in this video, we’re going to be talking about this webcam from me, Ross neuropsych. Ross is a company who makes electronics and many of them are smart electronics, like a smart switch. In fact, I have an outdoor switch for when we put out holiday lights and the outdoor switch, a home kit switch, which means I can control it from inside set schedules from inside, turn them off and things like that. Great product, their products work very well with home kit. I’ve had zero issues with them when I noticed that they had a webcam and it highly resembled a lot to take Breo. I was intrigued now it’s not a 4k webcam. And as a Trinity P webcam, which is not a big deal, because most of the time when you’re live streaming or chatting with somebody in zoom or Google meet or wherever you’re in 10 80 P or seven 20 P most likely, possibly even less, depending on your internet connection.
So I’m not so concerned about the 4k to 10 ADP differences between the Logitech webcam, the Logitech Brio, and this me Ross webcam. I was more interested in the overall design and functionality. And of course the quality of the video and the audio compared to lodger tech Breo at 10 ADP. The first thing I noticed when I opened it up is the design is very similar to the launch. Take Breo, as far as you’ve got the nice little bendable bracket to get squeezed against your screen. And then you also have the tripod screw at the bottom, which is really nice. So you can put it on the tripod if you want. The really interesting thing is that this webcam actually spins and tilts on this sort of ball joint at the top of the Mount. This is not a USB 3.0 cable. This is a USB two, and it is also not as long as logic take Breo cable.
The one that comes with it, they’ll actually take Breo. Cable is actually a USB C cable. It is actually a USB three connection into the computer, but in the back of the Breo, where connects is actually a USB-C. So the, the cable connection, the data transfer rate is actually going to be different between this camera and the logic camera. But again, you shouldn’t really notice that big of a difference where I really noticed the difference is when I brought it into the computer, I brought it into Ecamm live. So I can put up side by side and you can see the differences between logic tech, Breo and the MI ROSC webcam. And the really interesting thing is that the video and audio quality is far less on the mere OSS webcam than it is on the lotta take Bree. Okay.
Okay. So this is recording
With the logic take Breo. This is to seek and hear the microphone quality with the logic tic Breo. And what is most notable is that you have the, uh, we have the furnace going in the background so I can hear it. Typically when I record with my Nikons, the six or my Nikon three seven, two, uh, I hear the audio and I have to fine tune it. I hear that sort of hum. All right, let’s switch to the, uh, meet me Ross, a webcam. Now this is the me Ross webcam, and same thing. Uh, this is recording straight from the webcams audio. So again, I have the furnace going in the background and you probably hear the furnace. Hum. Um, hopefully the audio sounds equally as good as the logic Breo let’s see post. Okay. So there you go. There’s the big differences between the logic take Breo and the mere Ross webcam.
I will say the logic take Breo is well over a hundred dollars when you can find it. It’s usually out of stock everywhere. So if you can find it, you’re going to spend well over a hundred dollars, probably even more than $150. But as far as webcams go, there’s probably no webcam, better quality than a lot of tech Breo. But what I will tell you is this, this webcam is $19, went on sale. It’s $29 when not on sale. When you usually there’s a $10 coupon code on Amazon. So I’ll link to this in the description below. If you need a webcam and you’re not too concerned about the highest quality, but you want a wide view and you want something that, you know, works for sports classes or works for anything that you need a wider view than what your built in webcam can do.
And you don’t want to spend a lot of money. This should do just fine, but you can see from this video, the kind of quality you’re going to get out of it, both video and audio quality, it’s not the best, but it’s also not the worst. You might even argue that the video quality out of this is better. The built in webcam quality of your computer, maybe depending on your computer, I will link to this webcam in the description down below, check it out if you need it again, it’s $30 or so a normal price, but you can get it for about $19 when it’s on sale.
