Webcam - which one / how much?

I haven't even looked at what is out there in terms of webcams since the days of MSN Messenger, but with this working from home I need one.

I'm using a two screen setup with laptop in a docking station.

It means that the webcam looks at me from the side, and it is obvious if I'm working on something else / looking at something else during a video conference.

What should I be looking at and how much should I pay? Just looking for something of similar quality to what you would get built in on a new higher end laptop.

Something from Logitech or Microsoft LifeCam caught my eye but wondering how much I need to pay

Thanks for this - very helpful.

Do you know anything about that Logitech one, is it a fairly dated model?

Not sure I understand what you need to know.
I have had a C920 for a few years and it continues to operate as it did when I got it.
If that is dated, then yes it is.
Does it work well - yes it does.
It also has stereo MICs as well as good display.

Anyone know where you can buy any Logitech webcams(C920 or C925e) at the moment? They seem to be sold out everywhere.
Would this work just as well, seems to be knockoff version of the Logitech webcams.

If you look around the Logitech ones are starting to come into stock in many places. They are on Amazon UK now for example. There is a load of crap on it too
