Value For Money

Disappointing Value for Money

Whilst the product is in the cheapest 63% of webcams, it has mediocre features, is over 6 months old and at £18.00 it does not look like great value for money overall.

Age

Released Over Six Years Ago

This Mediacom webcam has been on the market since December 2011.
