Logitech MX Brio review: Great camera

Logitech MX Brio

The Logitech MX Brio is a 4K webcam that delivers. You get crisp and clear image quality, with good low-light performance, too. It also comes with dual beamforming microphones to suppress background noise. It's good enough for work meetings, but if you plan on streaming, I think you're better off with a proper microphone.

Quick specs

  • 4K/30fps, 1080p/60fps
  • Dual beamforming microphones for noise reduction up to 1.2m range
  • 8.5MP Sony Starvis sensor with 4x digital zoom

I quite like the design of the Logitech MX Brio. It's thinner than the Dell Pro Webcam WB5023, while still offering better image quality. Clad in recycled plastic and low-carbon aluminium, the Logitech MX Brio feels, and looks premium. The lens sits in the middle, flanked by two beamforming microphones. A privacy shutter is located under the lens glass, and you control it by rotating the ring around the lens. I really like this, as it gives a satisfying click when doing so. It also reminds me of turning off an old-school TV. A light at the side tells you when it's recording video or audio.

The Logitech MX Brio clips onto the included stand magnetically, and you attach the stand to your monitor with a sticker. You don't have to do so though, especially if you plan on repositioning the webcam. But sticking it does let you take advantage of the Show Mode feature of the webcam. Basically, you can tilt the webcam downwards to show your desk. The dual beamforming microphones at the side are designed to suppress background noise, and they do a good job. But you will still sound echoey and distant. Great for an open office space, but not if you're trying to live stream.

One thing I like about the Logitech MX Brio is that you don't have to choose from either of Logitech's software. Instead, it works with both Logi Options+ and Logitech G Hub. Both offer similar control settings. You can adjust the brightness, contrast, field of view, zoom, and where it's cropped to. These controls work for most video conferencing apps such as Zoom, Google Meet, etc. However, it doesn't have AI features to always keep you in the frame like the Dell Pro Webcam, or Apple's Centre Stage.

Image quality, as mentioned, is great. I like how bright and sharp I looked. In low light, noise is quite well controlled, and I still looked well-lit. Do note that images may look different when you're using a video conferencing app as the app may have its own settings that tweak the incoming video feed.

The Logitech MX Brio is an excellent webcam for both the home and the office. It's a great addition to the Logitech MX line, though at S$349, it's a lot more expensive than many webcams available. But I daresay it's worth every dollar. Get it from Lazada, Shopee, or Amazon SG (where it's cheapest).
