Robust

Three owners wrote in their reviews that the product was well made. Expert website Mymac.com scored the product 4 stars out of 5 and wrote “What I mean by this is that the WideCam F100 has many features that are definitely not built into your typical webcam” in their review of this webcam.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The WideCam F100 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other webcams with a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the TV Cam (£38.98), and the QuickCam Pro for Notebooks both from Logitech or the A4Tech PK-950H (£29.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
