recommend me an good inexpensive computer camera


My laptops had cameras, but the monitor on my new desktop computer doesn't, so I'm going to get one. I'm looking at https://www.walmart.com/ip/Logitech-...lling/17616997 . I don't want to spend much more than that.

Ah you mean a webcam apparently. I have a Logitech 310. It's decent. I'm very cautious about Walmart as a source for computer gear. They do have some rather scam-my stuff especially in prebuilts but I doubt a webcam is affected. $27 is quite cheap but it seems serviceable. My 310 was only 12 bux more.

I've never had an issue with Logitech or Creative webcams - I found an old Creative one on ebay for probably $5 a few years ago (and it was probably a few years old then) that still, somehow, works (I think its 320x240 or thereabouts though). I've also had mostly fine luck with the no-name 'HD webcams' you can find on Amazon or ebay for around $20-30, some of them even come with stands, and have autofocus - as long as they're UVC devices they should work.
