Summary: This camera served its purpose for two years on Windows XP and XP 64 bit without problems, the hardware was OK but the software was poor and the sound quality was average. However after upgrading to Vista the camera became unusable. Philips claim to have released Vista and Windows 7 drivers for the camera but they are notoriously unstable and there are posts describing problems all over the web, I tried installing both Philips drivers and Microsoft ones for this camera,...
Summary: The tripod screw mount of the Philips webcam was suddenly separated from the main body of the webcam. In addition, the customer center told me it couldn't be covered by a warranty. that's it. Don't waste your money.
Summary: MACINTOSH USERS PLEASE READ AND SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF TROUBLE!! This neat little camera has a great look and I bet it works really well. The problem is i COULD NOT GET IT TO WORK even with downloading the MACAM driver. I took it to a professional Mac place and they said it would take them so long to install it on my mac (and expensive) that I should just buy this neat little cam they have in stock for their Mac users called iMage which is what I did and here is what...
Summary: I purchased this item based on recommendations from the Skype tech department. According to Skype, this webcam would be compatible with Mac OS. After purchasing this product, along with a reasonable $8 charge for shipping, I received the webcam with an unexpected $30 charge for shipping from Beach Audio (apparently due to the fact that I live in Hawaii, which was not made clear on the order form.) I had problems installing the software for this product.
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. It is too flimsy to set in one position and expect it to stay there--even the tripod mount screw location is obscured by the clip.
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. My beefs are these: The box states as big as Dallas that this is a 90 fps camera. However, the software only allows 60 fps.
Excerpt: Earlier yesterday morning I was reading several reviews about web based cameras, and after review I went into my local store to buy one. To my dismay I had left the name at home, so I decided to purchase the Philips SPC 900NC model, as my little voice told me to. I brought it home with the intention of using it to see and hear my wifes neice in the Philippines (we live in the cloudy city of Seattle).
Pros: you name it, its simply superior in every way
