- Face masks and hand sanitizers have been the best-selling products among our readers for a while now on Amazon, there’s another type of product that has been picking up steam: Webcams.
- Good webcams have been very difficult to come by lately online, and the ones that are in stock tend to be price-gouged.
- If you’ve been looking to up your Zoom game, the good news is that there are finally a bunch of great webcam options in stock at Amazon and you won’t have to pay horribly inflated prices anymore to get one.
Among BGR Deals readers right now, there’s no question that face masks and hand sanitizers are the best-selling products we cover. It’s pretty easy to understand why they’re so popular since the CDC recommends that people wear face masks for protection anytime they leave their homes. In addition to face masks and social distancing, you should also be using strong hand sanitizer anytime you touch an object or surface outside your home.
In addition to face masks and hand sanitizers, another very popular type of product people want right now is a webcam. Most nonessential businesses are still closed at this point, and if they’re smart they’ll probably be closed until at least sometime in June. That means you’re in store for a whole lot of video conferencing in the weeks and potentially months to come. Even if you don’t use video for work or school, there’s a good chance you use them to chat with family and friends. Tired of holding up your phone the whole time? Don’t worry, because webcams are finally starting to arrive back in stock at Amazon.
Head over to Amazon’s webcam page to scroll around and check them out, but there are a few in particular that are shipping out soon at prices that are actually quite reasonable. If you’ve shopped for a webcam anytime recently, then you know that prices have been gouged for months now. A simple webcam that might have sold for $30 or $40 earlier this year can now easily cost $150, $175, or even more. Amazon isn’t doing anything to stop it, but luckily we’ve found a few options that are in stock right now at reasonable prices.
The Logitech C270 Webcam is one of the most popular models out there, which makes sense considering how big Logitech is in this space. This model is ready to ship right now, and while prices were over $200 at one point, it’s back down under $50 for the time being.
If you want a solid upgrade to a 1080p model and you don’t care about the Logitech brand since they’re pretty much all on par anyway these days, the Weicha 1080P HD Webcam with Microphone is in stock for $37.99 and new orders will be delivered this week. You can also get Angetube 1080P USB Webcam for $48.99 right now and it’ll ship out almost as quickly.
