4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Low megapixel count webcams built by Genius have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all webcams (not just low megapixel count webcams) and found that Genius also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The FaceCam 2020 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as the FaceCam 2020.

Other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price].

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Genius FaceCam 2020 has a maximum video resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution across all low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to the FaceCam 2020.

Across similar types of webcam the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

Full HD

The Genius FaceCam 2020 is Full HD. Most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the FaceCam 2020 are not Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Full HD webcams currently available including the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which has better reviews.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the FaceCam 2020, the FaceCam 2020 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Frame Rate

Comparable spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago have maximum frame rates of between 8fps and 60fps. The maximum frame rate of the Genius FaceCam 2020 of only 15 frames per second is one of the lowest amongst webcams that have been available for around the same time as the FaceCam 2020.

If this Genius webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to consider the Digitus DN-16047[plb_3156468_price] (25fps).

Not USB Powered

The Genius FaceCam 2020 is not USB powered, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the FaceCam 2020 are also not USB powered.

If you want a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to consider the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Genius FaceCam 2020 does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the FaceCam 2020 also do not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

Most webcams of this spec and age are not Mac compatible. The FaceCam 2020 is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth looking at include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Like most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago, the FaceCam 2020 does not have a snapshot button.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Logitech C600[plb_497439_price].

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been around for more than two years, the Genius FaceCam 2020 does not have a zoom capability.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a zoom capability which you might also want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price].

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years, the Genius FaceCam 2020 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 Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] is also worth considering.
