Good product for the price

Jerold Whalen, Amazon

  • Summary: The only adverse issue I have with this product is the absence of a users manual. It is inconvenient to have to load a disc or go on-line to access features which should be readily available. In the description there should have been a reference to limitations in picture quality.

Very Decent

  • Summary: it doesn't like being used by multiple programs and web apps at once...
  • Pros: High quality picture. once software has been installed and is enhancing the picture the view is very nice. pretty high frame rate.
  • Cons: short USB cable. VERY SHORT barely reaches my tower. if i didn't have a full tower that stood close to my right hand monitor i would have had to find a USB extender cable...

Easy to use, very good picture clarity

Scarlett Brontë, Amazon

  • Summary: Installation was a snap. I installed it on my notebook and had it working in minutes. The picture was very clear, but a little dark, and colors were not true. I had just dyed my hair a very bright, punky red, and was disappointed that the camera could not capture the vibrant color.

I was pleasantly surprised...

  • Summary: At how clear this web cam is. I installed it very quickly, and in no time I was on Skype. It really does a wonderful job as a web cam. My only complaint (that others have also lodged) is about the length of the cord, but that was easily remedied by a USB extension cable.

Philips SPZ6500/27 Notebook Webcam SPC2050NC

Dan Hariton, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: Nov.28, 2011: I needed video recording speed, 90FPS, and it did not work. Philips SPZ6500/27 Notebook Webcam SPC2050NC did not run at 90FPS as advertised: it maxed out at 12FPS/24FPS on my two PCs: [Windows7-64bitOS, dual-Opteron280, 2.4GHz, 6GB RAM; and on an old laptop running Windows XP SP3].

Good for speed

Todd, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera for a computer vision program I'm writing. My main reason for choosing this model was the high frame rates (up to 90 fps), which it seems to deliver. The picture quality is not very good however. Color is usually inaccurate and noisy, and overall quality is poor.

Disappointed

Dean Robinson, Amazon

  • Summary: While the picture quality is fine, the cable from camera to computer is too short. I believe this was done intentionally to force consumers to purchase a camera for their laptop and a separate camera for their home PC.

It works for my mom.

Thomas G Vansistine, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought it for my mother's laptop so we could do video calls with Skype. She is over 80. It worked for her. The picture was a bit muted, but I did not set it up and so there may be something else that can help.

  • Summary: Great sound quality and image quality. Easy to take with you in a bag. I purchased several of them. Software gives good options and was easy to install. No problem with XP.
