    Hello all

    With the rate they sold out before the lockdown, you might have to grab whatever you can get

    If all you want is a basic Cam then the Logitech C270 HD 720p Webcam works well. Normally around $60 Area, BUT some places may bump up prices due to demand.

    I dragged out a couple the other week that haven't been used for several years , one was the model before that C170 (2011) , both worked perfectly Fine on W10.

    As PCUser said though get what you can, as many places have sold out. One of my Suppliers ran out of Logitech quickly, they managed to get some others (Genius )

    Mines Dove Electronics ( wholesaler), BUT they only sell to Accounts and you have to be a Business, they don't sell to general public.

    They don't have any at the moment, and are only supplying to essential requirements. Just rang them and it appears working from Home is classed as essential, so my toner I'm in desperate need for is being sent out today. Always paper work to do
