Our Verdict

Most computer webcams can’t match the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920’s excellent video-call quality.

Razer Kiyo Pro

Working from home has caused a significant surge in webcam sales, and Razer jumped on this opportunity by releasing the Razer Kiyo Pro, a webcam built for both gaming and business use. 

It’s a decent entry to Razer’s peripheral lineup, as it offers solid 1080p, HDR video and photo quality as well as a decent microphone. It even includes a neat privacy cover and a super useful companion app. However, for $200, it’s hard to justify this webcam not having a 4K resolution. Plus, the webcam can be a little finicky between autofocus and some of the saved settings. More annoying, though, is its short power cable.

I wouldn’t call the Razer Kiyo Pro one of the best webcams around, but if you like Razer products, this is still a pretty good webcam if you don't need 4K.
