Philips SPC1300NC Webcam review


It seems no matter what you buy these days that it comes with a webcam built-in and we're all looking for that next YouTube moment. However, if you really want to have fun online then it pays to invest in something a little more impressive than the...

High resolution, easy to set up


This high-resolution webcam offers great image quality and a fast recording rate, just make sure your broadband connection is fast enough to match

This is great webcam. Best video of any I've had.


The video is near flawless thanks to the 90 frames per second rate. I use it with Skype and it is pretty clear and without delay or flickering. Great audio quality. I don't use it much for photos, but I've taken some and they're very good quality

No case for it. I throw it in my laptop bag, so a protective case would have been nice

Great camera, great price


If you're looking for a decent webcam at an affordable price, the Philips SPC1300NC is definitely for you. Before you go to your local store, it's worth looking online as price difference can GREATLY vary.

Fantastic framerate with a good clear picture even with fast movement, bright, clear photos at 6MP, and ease of use make this camera a definite winner

Philips customer support is horrible. I had a basic problem and it took 4 calls to get it resolved and I ultimately ended up helping the rep solve the problem. The camera, at least in my case, could not automanage itself. It kept turning on/off

camera is nice, software sucks


waste of money. specs don't work as advertised, mic doesn't work period, about the only thing nice about it is a blue light comes on when its in use. oh, and it doesn't mount to a standard LCD or laptop LCD at all unless you set it on top of the...

nice compact lightweight design, built-in mic, 8x digital zoom and 6mp camera, nice specs

bundled VLounge too bloated ; no advertised specs without VLounge, 30 FFS at best ; no audio input function, mic just doesn't function
