Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Philips released the PTA317.

Not USB Powered

The Philips PTA317 is not USB powered, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that came out around the same time as the PTA317 are also not USB powered.

If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to consider the Logitech C930e, or the HP 1300 (£46.99).

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Philips PTA317 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been around for more than two years.

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 Logitech C930e is also worth considering.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Philips PTA317 does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago also do not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also feature face tracking including the Logitech C910, or the Hercules HD Emotion which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Philips PTA317 is not mac compatibility, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the PTA317 are also not mac compatibility.

If you are looking for a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to look at the Logitech C910, or the Genius FaceCam 320 (£8.99) which also has a higher rating.

Has a Zoom Capability

The Philips PTA317 has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the PTA317 which do not have a zoom capability.

Not Full HD

The Philips PTA317 is not full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of this age and type are also not full HD.

Webcams which are full HD that might also be worth looking at include the C930e, or the C910 both from Logitech.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Philips PTA317 does not have a night mode, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the PTA317 also do not have a night mode.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most webcams that were released around the same time as the PTA317 do not have a snapshot button. The Philips PTA317 is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a snapshot button including the HP HD 4310 which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of webcams that came out around the same time as the PTA317 range from 3x to 10x, and the average digital zoom is 4.4x. At only 3 times zoom factor, the Philips PTA317 has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other webcams that were released around the same time as the PTA317.
