4 Reasons For

Good Brand

V7 has good average ratings for its built-in microphone webcams as well as across its entire webcam range compared to other manufacturers.

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other built-in microphone webcams that are a similar age to the CS0300 which are not USB powered, the V7 CS0300 is USB powered.

There are a number of alternative USB powered webcams currently available which you might want to consider including the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly High Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

Across all the webcams of a similar spec and age to the CS0300 the maximum interpolated image resolutions range from 1.3MP to 30MP. With a maximum interpolated image resolution of 16 megapixels, the V7 CS0300 has one of the higher maximum interpolated image resolutions amongst webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The V7 CS0300 is quite light (only 68 grams) compared to most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the CS0300. Across all the built-in microphone webcams that were launched around the same time as the CS0300 the weights range from 0.35g to 1.5kg, and the average weight is 140g.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Average

This built-in microphone webcam has an average user rating of 66 out of 100 based on 9 user reviews.

£1.45 Price Increase

In the last 49 days the CS0300 has increased in price by £1.45.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The V7 CS0300 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Very Low Megapixel

With a megapixel of only 0.3 megapixels, the V7 CS0300 has a fairly low megapixel compared to most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than two years. The megapixels of built-in microphone webcams that are a similar age to the CS0300 range from 0.1MP to 20MP, and the average megapixel is 3.2MP.

If you would prefer a higher megapixel then you might want to consider the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price] (1.3MP), or the L-Link LL-4186[plb_2285710_price] (8MP) which is also higher rated.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the V7 CS0300 is 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than the most common maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the worst video resolution amongst all webcams of this age and spec.

Amongst similar types of webcam the best video resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The V7 CS0300 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this age and spec also do not feature face tracking.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that came out more than two years ago, the V7 CS0300 is not mac compatibility.

If you want a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to consider the Genius FaceCam 320[plb_1719586_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The V7 CS0300 does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the CS0300 also do not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the L-Link LL-4186[plb_2285710_price], or the Sony PlayStation Eye[plb_1322154_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The V7 CS0300 does not have a snapshot button, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the CS0300 also do not have a snapshot button.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a snapshot button which you might also want to look at including the Logitech QuickCam Deluxe[plb_459547_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of this spec and age do not have a night mode. The V7 CS0300 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

Works great with skype and other video software...

Clear picture for a cheap camera
Works out of the box on Windows 7 64
Just needed a cheap webcam for skype with friends across the country, this thing was cheap
On EEG saver went it free
Small and easy to use. Clamping mechanism held camera very secure to laptop screen. Included driver worked without any issues
Manual focus
Mounting clip doesn't fit my monitor
I wish the cord was bigger
Everything but the price, it doesn't work, its stiff to adjust it that the plastic bends and flexes when i try to adjust it. the clip is pretty useless unless you have your monitor facing straight up
