Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth looking at include the C300[pl_446165_price], or the 3000[pl_961324_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price].

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a night mode. The Ewent EW1226 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a night mode to this webcam and we think the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], the PLCM21[pl_101453_price], or the PLCM22IR[pl_101457_price] all from Pyle which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Ewent EW1226 is not Full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the EW1226 are also not Full HD.

If you would prefer a webcam that is Full HD then you might also want to consider the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which also has a higher rating.

The Ewent EW1226 supports a newer Mac operating systems support than most comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to it.

A Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Mac operating system is the best supported Mac operating systems support amongst comparable types of webcam.
