Both of these webcams are amazing, but we think that the best one for most people will be the Razer Kiyo Pro since it has excellent performance and specs across the board. The Logitech Brio is an excellent choice for people who need 4K or camera zoom, however.

In terms of specs and features, the duel between the Razer Kiyo Pro and the Logitech Brio is a close one. In the resolution and framerate category, the Logitech Brio comes out on top with both 4K 30FPS and 1080p 60FPS options, while the Kiyo Pro is limited to 1080p 60FPS. The Kiyo Pro hits back with a Gorilla Glass 3-protected lens, a wider maximum FOV of 103 degrees, and a detachable L-shaped joint that gives users greater mounting flexibility. The Brio returns fire with its digital zoom feature that allows you to zoom in 5x in HD as well as Windows Hello functionality, though.

Kiyo Pro vs. Brio: Which should you buy?

Ultimately, we think that between these two webcams, most people will be better served by the Razer Kiyo Pro. The wider maximum FOV, more durable lens, and more flexible mounting options give it a big edge when it comes to versatility and durability. That's ultimately what we think will benefit people the most.

However, don't overlook the Logitech Brio. 4K does look incredible, and the digital HD zoom feature can be great if you want to use the webcam in some more unorthodox positions.
