5 Reasons For

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other webcams of this spec and age which are not USB powered, the VG-STC2000 is USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The VG-STC2000 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the VG-STC2000.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The VG-STC2000 has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VG-STC2000 which do not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams with a zoom capability to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, the HP KQ245AA, and the Logitech TV Cam HD ($199.99) is also worth considering.

This webcam's resolution at capture speed (1280×720@30fps) is in fact the best resolution at capture speed amongst all webcams of a comparable type and age to the VG-STC2000.

The worst resolution at capture speed across similar types of webcam is 640x480@30fps.
