5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Emtec Snake has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the Snake.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Mediatech MT4030K[plb_1998655_price], the Hercules Link[plb_1022846_price], or the Microsoft LifeCam VX-800[plb_473212_price] which has better reviews.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Emtec Snake is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution. The worst video resolution of all webcams that have been on the market for more than two years is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

1/2" Optical Sensor Size

The biggest optical sensor size of the Emtec Snake is 1/2". That's over three times the optical sensor size of a 1/7" webcam, which is the most frequently found optical sensor size. 6.40 x 4.80mm.

This webcam's optical sensor size (1/2") is in fact the best optical sensor size amongst all webcams of a comparable age and spec to the Snake.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this webcam is 53 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including slam-zine.de and svmlemag.fr. Experts don't rate this low megapixel count webcam very highly.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Emtec Snake does not have a motion detector, although keep in mind that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the Snake also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Emtec Snake is not USB powered, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that came out more than two years ago are also not USB powered.

If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to look at the Mediatech MT4030K[plb_1998655_price], the Microsoft LifeCam VX-800[plb_473212_price], or the HP AU165AA[plb_478038_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Emtec Snake does not have a zoom capability. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the Snake also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Mediatech MT4030K[plb_1998655_price], or the Genius FaceCam 1000X[plb_2585528_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a snapshot button which you might also want to consider including the APPWC02[pl_464230_price], or the APPWC02W[pl_464235_price] both from Approx or the HP AU165AA[plb_478038_price].
