Surprised by quality

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Very short lead, unless you are using on a laptop you will need a USB extension lead. You cannot make a stand from the lead as the photo describes as you have to use an extension lead as the lead is absolutely too small. I would say that it is only designed for notebooks on the move. Impractical for notebooks in normal desktop mode as it is top heavy and will just move around all the time. The picture quality is very poor and has high colour picture flicker.

Laptop Webcam

Madman, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: Nice laptop webcam. This is perfect for a traveller. Very small and bendable into any shape. Fits nicely in my Dell rear USB port. The lens protector is a good idea and will save dust/dirt getting in the lens while not being used. The light will not help in dark conditions to illuminate your face but is good for seeing the keyboard. As long as there is reasonable light the picture is fine.

Good on paper - lacking in practice

Peter J. Lynch "astropete", Amazon
7 July 2010
  • Summary: Software: fine, picture quality: good, installation: easy enough, looks: good, features: has an inbuilt light. The biggest let down of this camera is also its unique feature - the stalk between the camera and the USB connector. While it seems like a good idea in theory, in practice it's terrible.

DID THE JOB

  • Summary: I needed a flexible camera for a car repair and purchased a "snake cam" from maplins the focus range was limited to 6cm so did not do the job. this one works fine with what seems to be unlimited focus. it is shorter than the snake cam but that was no problem.

Very dark image

Cameron's Mum, Amazon
11 November 2008
  • Summary: Bought this on the strength of previous reviews. But am very disappointed. Video image is dark in daylight and very dark in artificial light even with the LED light switched on. Have tried to adjust the settings but this makes the image very pixelated. Don't be fooled by the photo of the webcam, the cord is very short - so on a video call you have to have an upwards sideways view of your face.

Happy!

Eilidh Macbeath, Amazon

  • Summary: I was really worried when i bought this WebCam because i didnt knwo what the quality would be like. But i am happy to report its really really good. yes yes the Cord could have been a lot longer but thats not a problem if u have an extra connection cord lying in the house. I am happy i would suggest you buy it because for money i believe u get good quality. 5 stars because its meant for a laptop (works on computers too)and thats why it has a short cord.

Quality in a simple and sleek design, very mobile and handy

Chaz, Amazon
30 June 2007
  • Summary: I agree with the previous reviewer. It is small and simple, very handy for a mobile laptop user, which I am. Overview: # Quality of the video is good, similar to other medium range VGA web cams. # It has a still photo capture feature which takes pictures of 800x600 pixel dimensions. # Doesn't have loads of software -- just the driver, and a Philips "VLounge" software to use it as a camera for capturing movies and stills.

Good Looking Camera.

F. C. von Rönge "Lost", Amazon
2 July 2006
  • Summary: The Philips SPC 610NC is a nice webcam. The USB Cord is a little short but is not a problem if you have a notebook or a monitor with inbuilt USB. The software is almost non existant but on Windows XP it should work plug and play. Drivers are included. The camera has grainy image in low light but the inbuilt lamp works. The lamp can be turned of physically so there is no need to fiddle around with software or bluetack as on most other models. Great build quality.

Viel zu dunkel

P. Meyer "ursus latex", Amazon
19 February 2010
  • Summary: Aufgrund der guten Rezension bei Amazon habe ich mir die Kamera bestellt. Allerdings musste ich feststellen, dass die Qualität des Bildes erheblich zu wünschen übrig lässt. Das Bild ist viel zu dunkel, da hilft auch die kleine LED-Lampe nicht darüber hinweg. Ich habe die Kamera zurück gehen lassen. Den einen Stern verdient die Kamera nur aufgrund ihres kompakten Formats.
