Belkin Webcams Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Belkin webcams and also specifically for Belkin built-in microphone webcams and found that in both cases Belkin had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
Has a Night Mode
Unlike most of the other webcams that have been available for a similar time to the NetCam HD which do not have a night mode, the Belkin NetCam HD has a night mode.
There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a night mode which you might also want to consider including the Belkin F7D7602[plb_1948170_price].
1/3" Optical Sensor Size
The biggest optical sensor size of the NetCam HD is 1/3". That's 33% more optical sensor size than a 1/4" webcam, which is the most frequently found optical sensor size. 4.80 x 3.60mm.
A 1/3" optical sensor size is in fact the best optical sensor size amongst all webcams of a similar spec and age to the NetCam HD.
A 1/4" optical sensor size is the worst optical sensor size across comparable types of webcam.
11 Reasons Against
Inferior Technical Features
One person mentioned in their reviews that the Belkin NetCam HD did not have good features. Lyn wrote on Amazon “Not used any other features so can't comment.”.
Unacceptable Noise Level
One person considered that it was not noisy.
Quite Low Maximum Frame Rate
With a maximum frame rate of only 25 frames per second, the Belkin NetCam HD's maximum frame rate is one of the lowest amongst built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the NetCam HD. The lowest maximum frame rate of comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the NetCam HD is 8fps, the highest is 120fps, and the average maximum frame rate is 31fps.
Does Not Have a Motion Detector
Most webcams of a comparable type and age to the NetCam HD do not have a motion detector. The Belkin NetCam HD is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.
+8 More reasons against
Not USB Powered
Like most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been around for more than two years, the NetCam HD is not USB powered.
If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to look at the C930e[pl_363535_price], or the C510[pl_327642_price] both from Logitech.
Does Not Feature Face Tracking
Most built-in microphone webcams that are a similar age to the NetCam HD do not feature face tracking. The Belkin NetCam HD is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.
Not Mac Compatibility
Most webcams of a comparable age and spec to the NetCam HD are not mac compatibility. The NetCam HD is no exception to this as it too is not mac compatibility.
We think this built-in microphone webcam looks expensive compared to other built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for more than two years. The cheapeast webcam of a similar type and age that we found costs £3 and the most expensive costs £270.
Does Not Have a Zoom Capability
The NetCam HD does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago also do not have a zoom capability.
Does Not Have a Snapshot Button
The NetCam HD does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the NetCam HD also do not have a snapshot button.
We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a snapshot button and we think the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1479217_price], or the Logitech C510[plb_327642_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Not Full HD
The NetCam HD is not full HD. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the NetCam HD are also not full HD.
This webcam has been on the market for over three years.
With a megapixel of 2 megapixels, the NetCam HD has a fairly standard megapixel compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the NetCam HD.
There are a number of other 2MP webcams currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper webcams such as the Logitech C905[plb_446157_price].
1280 X 720 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution
This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum video resolution on built-in microphone webcams that have been available for more than two years.
