Allum scored it 60 out of 100 and mentioned in their review of this webcam 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”.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One person said in their reviews that it was not thick. Bill Bailey wrote in his V7 Vantage Webcam 300 review last year “The attachment mechanism is incredibly loose” .

Ok for the price but not 30fps

Reviewed 11 February 2015 by riddles

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.

Works fine.
