Best Buy via eBay has the Logitech C270 HD Webcam with 720p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording for $19.99 shipped (matched on Best Buy). That’s 50% under the original price, matching the best refurbished listings we can find, $7 below Amazon and matching the best price we’ve seen it go for.
- Easy HD video calls on Skype, Windows Live Messenger
- Fluid HD 720p video recording and video calling in 16:9 widescreen
- Crisp 3 MP photos
- Auto light correction, built-in noise-cancelling mic

While the feature list only mentions Windows-based systems, user reports (of which there are many) suggest it works just fine on Mac. In our own experience we found the C920 model to work on OS X right out of the box.
