Poor Product Quality

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”.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth looking at include the MT4040[pl_1998656_price], or the MT4030K[pl_1998655_price] both from Mediatech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating.

Alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to consider include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the LogiLink WC0020[plb_798362_price], or the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most comparable spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago do not have a zoom capability. The V7 CS1330 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price], or the Samsung VG-STC2000[plb_1514076_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Other webcams which also have a night mode that you might want to look at include the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], or the PLCM21[pl_101453_price] both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Full HD

The V7 CS1330 is not full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years are also not full HD.

If you would prefer a webcam that is full HD then you might also want to look at the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price], or the Hama Digital Eye II PRO[plb_1805273_price] which is also higher rated.

3 Other reasons to consider the V7 CS1330

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the V7 CS1330 has a pretty standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the Pyle PLCM19[plb_101449_price], the MSI StarCam Clip[plb_637711_price], or the Logitech B500[plb_546296_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a higher maximum frame rate then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.

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.
