Incredibly poor stand/clip design

W. Draper, Amazon
7 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought the SPC900NC based on several technical recommendations. But the design of the stand/clip is juvenile, hopeless, and just astoundingly poor. It will not stay on the lip of a laptop monitor.

In the Dark...

M. Seidenberg, Amazon
25 September 2006
  • Summary: Unlike the above desciples of this camera, I found it to be one of the most poorly designed cameras out there. I will agree the picture quality was better than others, but if you can't get the camera to consistently capture the subject, what good is picture quality.

not as good

Erik Graefenschnell, Amazon
22 February 2007
  • Summary: ... as you might think it is when you read the Philips webpage. The cam has one good feature: it provides good picture quality even with bad light. If this is what you need, go for it. The rest is crap, especially the software.
