PowerConf S3 Bluetooth Speakerphone
Great mid-tier webcam for a great price. If only Anker could my name right in the email they sent requesting my review.
Far and a way the best speaker & microphone combo.
While I use Skype on occasion, I was still running an older 720P Logitech and figured it was time to get something with better resolution. So far the C200 has been just what I was looking for, much better resolution without breaking the bank. 2K is plenty so others can see me much clearer.

Went back and forth between AnkerWork, Razor and Logitech. After several hours of research decided on AnkerWork. The software is spot-on for a mac user. Have a zero-bezel LG widescreen and it does not compromise any workspace mounted on top. Sound and picture quality is excellent - based on what co-workers have shared. The Sutter feature is a plus. Cons - you will have to restart the software once in a while bouncing from one screen share app to the next. I never shut down or restart my node (unless necessary) so not a big deal for me. Other reviews mention having to center your image in the viewport - yes that needs to be done before you go live or don't care. Happy so far. For the price - go for it.
Works great & was incredibly easy to set up!

If you have an rtx card, download Nvidia broadcast. It'll make you video a lot more professional. If not, that is fine. It's a really good camera. Good for streaming and such. Arguably better than the higher priced model
I really love anything and everything Anker but this product kind of missed the mark for me - at least for the price they are charging.
- Sharp looks
- Love the built-in cover
- The ability to tweak the lighting by touch and visibly see whether you are muted or if the camera is on with a visual indicator right on the device is a nice touch
- Camera is sharp
- Speaker is a nice addition and sounds good although I would have paid less to exclude the speaker
- Colors on the camera are unsaturated and picture looks "meh" (I know this can be adjusted in Ankerwork app, but haven't gotten it looking that great)
- Light is not nearly bright enough. This is my biggest gripe as it was the main reason I bought it, as I work in a backlit room bc of a window. Hopefully this can be fixed via software update.
- Automatic light adjustment does not work well. Have to do it manually.
- Requires separate power cord and USB-C cord to work
Overall, it's a quality product and it does a lot of things compared to a normal webcam, but I'd argue that it doesn't do any of them particularly well which is frustrating at this price point.
This is exactly what I was looking for to raise my camera up to eye level between my dual monitors. Very sturdy and adjustable.
Very good with macbook, dont need to open lid now.
The only thing, camera disconnects from Meet after ankerwork app closed
During COVID, our Rotary Club has been meeting by Zoom.
Many members have complained that when they connect to the meeting by Zoom, they can't hear the comments of the members at the meeting.
On the advice of one of our members, we bouight the S3 and used it at our last meeting.
It enabled our Club members who were joining our Club meeting by Zoom to hear the discussion at the table!
I am using the H700 in my home office and after one week, I am extremely satisfied with the audio quality and battery life of the headset. The noise reduction setting makes all background noise disappear, although I sometimes like the "transparency" mode so I can hear a little bit of sound other than my own voice. Another great Anker product, thanks!
We have lots of Anker products, and they always exceed expectations. This speaker is no exception.
I work in IT as a developer and we work all remote. I have tried various solutions under $100 and none of them worked well. After switching to PowerConf S500 it works so well everyone at work complimented the quality if audio they are getting. It works well over Bluetooth via the provided dongle as well as via the USB C cable they provide. Mind you we use Remote desktop for work session (Azure WVD) and calls from inside remote desktop also works equally well. Of course I am on a very fast 1Gbps connection. And my host machine is running WIndows 11 Pro.
