5 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average V7 low megapixel webcams have good ratings compared to other brands as do all webcams manufactured by V7.

USB Powered

The V7 CS0300 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the CS0300 are not USB powered.

We compared this webcam to all the other USB powered webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the MT4040, and the MT4030K both from Mediatech or the Logitech 960-000271 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years, the V7 CS0300 has a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including because of it's better review score, the 960-000842-981-000094, or the TV Cam HD ($300.00) both from Logitech or the ASSMANN Electronic DA-71813.

Across all the webcams that are a comparable age to the CS0300 the weights range from 0.35g to 480g. The V7 CS0300 is quite light (only 68 grams) compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the CS0300.

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
