Belkin Has Good Webcam Reviews
Belkin is one of the superior webcam manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Belkin also has good ratings for its low megapixel count webcams.
Has a Built-In Microphone
The F7D7602 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the F7D7602.
We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000[plb_703784_price], and the Samsung VG-STC4000[plb_2268251_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Night Mode
The F7D7602 has a night mode, unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for more than two years which do not have a night mode.
1/3" Optical Sensor Size
This webcam has a 1/3" optical sensor size, which is the most commonly found optical sensor size on webcams that have been available for a comparable time to it. 4.80 x 3.60mm.
12 Reasons Against
Expert Reviews Are Average
The average expert rating of this low megapixel count webcam is 69 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including CNET.com and clubic.com.
Poor Product Quality
One customer who reviewed the product reckoned that it was not good quality. Cnet.com mentioned “You are dependent on the Belkin servers and the video quality can't rival the Dropcam Pro's” in their Belkin F7D7602 review however despite that they gave it a rating of 4 stars.
Does Not Have a Motion Detector
The F7D7602 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the F7D7602 also do not have a motion detector.
Quite Low Maximum Frame Rate
With a maximum frame rate of only 25 frames per second, the F7D7602 has a fairly low maximum frame rate compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the F7D7602. The lowest maximum frame rate of low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago is 8fps and the highest is 60fps.
If you want a webcam with a higher maximum frame rate then you might also want to look at the Samsung VG-STC4000[plb_2268251_price] (30fps) which also has a higher rating.
+9 More reasons against
Not USB Powered
Most webcams that have been on the market for more than two years are not USB powered. The F7D7602 is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.
Does Not Feature Face Tracking
Most low megapixel count webcams that were released around the same time as the F7D7602 do not feature face tracking. The Belkin F7D7602 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.
Not Mac Compatible
Most similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as the F7D7602 are not Mac compatible. The F7D7602 is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.
Only Wi-Fi Interface
The Belkin F7D7602 has a better interface than most low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as it. This Belkin webcam has a Wi-Fi interface, whereas most webcams of this age and spec have a USB interface.
A Wi-Fi interface is actually the worst interface across all low megapixel count webcams that have been around for a similar time to the F7D7602.
Across similar types of webcam the best interface is USB 2.
We think this Belkin webcam looks expensive compared to other webcams of a similar age and spec. The price range of webcams of a similar age and spec is from £6 to £444.
Does Not Have a Zoom Capability
Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out more than two years ago, the F7D7602 does not have a zoom capability.
We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000[plb_703784_price], or the Samsung VG-STC4000[plb_2268251_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Snapshot Button
Like most of the other webcams of this type and age, the F7D7602 does not have a snapshot button.
Not Full HD
The Belkin F7D7602 is not Full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the F7D7602 are also not Full HD.
Webcams which are Full HD that might be worth considering include the Samsung VG-STC4000[plb_2268251_price].
