5 Reasons For

USB Powered

The Samsung VG-STC2000 is USB powered, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years which are not USB powered.

There are a number of other USB powered webcams currently available which you might also want to consider including the HP KQ245AA, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The VG-STC2000 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the VG-STC2000 also have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The Samsung VG-STC2000 has a zoom capability, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, the HP KQ245AA, and the Logitech TV Cam HD is also worth considering.

1280×720@30fps Resolution At Capture Speed

The VG-STC2000 has a 1280×720@30fps resolution at capture speed which is better than most low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as it. Most low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a comparable time to it have a 640x480@30fps resolution at capture speed.

This webcam's resolution at capture speed (1280×720@30fps) is in fact the best resolution at capture speed across all low megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the VG-STC2000.

Across similar types of webcam the worst resolution at capture speed is 640x480@30fps.

Narrow

At only 12 millimeters, the VG-STC2000 is very narrow compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type. The average width of similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the VG-STC2000 is 80mm.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The VG-STC2000 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released around the same time as the VG-STC2000 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Samsung VG-STC2000 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for around the same time as the VG-STC2000 also do not feature face tracking.

Alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to look at include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the VG-STC2000, the Samsung VG-STC2000 does not have a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Logitech C600 which also has a higher rating.
