Across all webcams, the FaceCam 320 is one the fastest selling products currently available according to sales data from Amazon.
One Genius FaceCam 320 owner who bought it considered that it was good value for money. Bigkevsta wrote in their review on Amazon “Reasonable product for the price”.
The Genius FaceCam 320 is Mac compatible. Most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago are not Mac compatible.
Has a Built-In Microphone
The FaceCam 320 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of this age and spec.
We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Bluestork BS-CAM-100K-D is also worth considering.
This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is typical of many webcams of this age and type.
Quite Small Minimum Hard Disk Space
With a minimum hard disk space of only 200 megabytes, the FaceCam 320 has a fairly small minimum hard disk space compared to most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the FaceCam 320. Across all the webcams that were released around the same time as the FaceCam 320 the minimum hard disk space range from 60MB to 500MB, and the average minimum hard disk space is 230MB.
