Reasonably Priced

Bromley said in their V7 CS1330 review “Very good item at a very reasonable price” and gave this webcam a score of 5 stars.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

Some people wrote in their reviews that the V7 CS1330 was not good quality. Mr Bryan Smith said in his review of the V7 CS1330 in October last year “Picture quality poor” . Mr. T. C. Allum rated it 60 out of 100 and wrote in their V7 CS1330 review on Amazon “The picture quality from this webcam is not good enough to be called 'Professional'From here on the words are here just to make up the number”.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The V7 CS1330 does not have a motion detector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for more than two years also do not have a motion detector.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a motion detector to this webcam and we think the C270[pl_37101_price], the C170[pl_824911_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] all from Logitech which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not USB Powered

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CS1330, the V7 CS1330 is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the C270[pl_37101_price], or the C170[pl_824911_price] both from Logitech or the Cisco PrecisionHD[plb_1506318_price].

Very Low Megapixel

Across all the webcams of this type and age the megapixels range from 0.1MP to 20MP. With a megapixel of only 1.3 megapixels, the V7 CS1330 has one of the lower megapixels amongst built-in microphone webcams of this age.

We compared this webcam to all the other 1.3MP webcams and we think the Optical Glass[pl_1043509_price], and the Link[pl_1043506_price] both from Thrustmaster or the Logitech C300[plb_446165_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a higher megapixel then you might want to consider the B525[pl_1122011_price] (2MP), or the TV Cam HD[pl_1515821_price] (2MP) both from Logitech or the Genius FaceCam 2020[plb_2797352_price] (2MP) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the CS1330, the V7 CS1330 does not feature face tracking.

Other webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to consider include the C310[pl_265576_price], or the C910[pl_377024_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price].

Not Mac Compatibility

Most built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for more than two years are not mac compatibility. The V7 CS1330 is no exception to this as it too is not mac compatibility.

If you would prefer a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might want to consider the C910[pl_377024_price], the C300[pl_446165_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] all from Logitech.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The V7 CS1330 does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the CS1330 also do not have a zoom capability.

It is worth considering alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Zalman ZM-PC100[plb_3076718_price], the Logitech CC3000e[plb_2313340_price], or the iMicro CAM-IMC626[plb_2269735_price].

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most webcams that are a similar age to the CS1330 do not have a snapshot button. The V7 CS1330 is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might want to consider include the C250[pl_101761_price], or the B905[pl_546303_price] both from Logitech or the Approx APPWC03HD[plb_2432073_price] which is also higher rated.

Not Full HD

The V7 CS1330 is not full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the CS1330 are also not full HD.

If you would prefer a webcam that is full HD then you might also want to consider the Genius FaceCam 2020[plb_2797352_price], the Fujitsu S26391-F7136-L7[plb_2285681_price], or the Rocksoul WK-106[plb_1988641_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the CS1330 do not have a night mode. The V7 CS1330 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

It is worth also looking at alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the LogiLink WC0022[plb_1373408_price], the Tenda C30[plb_2035291_price], or the T'nB NIGHTY480[plb_2164931_price] which is also higher rated.

An ok camera for the price, but i wanted to post a review to say that this camera does NOT work at 30fps. I'd say 15fps is probably more accurate as it blurs with any major movement.
