Expert review by : Carrie-Ann Skinner (

Philips SPC640NC review


The Philips SPC640NC is a silver webcam measuring 37x71x62mm. The device features an adjustable black clip, with a lip at the front to ensure the device sits securely when placed on a laptop screen or monitor.

The Philips SPC640NC webcam is an excellent webcam that captures clear and sharp video footage and images. The addition of ArcSoft’s Webcam Companion means children and teens can have fun adding effects to their images. It’s also great value for money.

The camera is a bit under performer..When the fps is set to low then only the picture appears to be better visible higher fps washes out the colors and makes it a dark picture even though the room is well lit
