4 Reasons For

Quite Long Cable Length

At 5 meters, the Pyle PLCM21 has a quite long cable length compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the PLCM21. The average cable length of webcams of a similar age and spec to the PLCM21 is 1.9m, and the cable lengths range from 0.76m to 5.7m.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The Pyle PLCM21 has a night mode, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years do not have a night mode.

It is worth also looking at other webcams which also have a night mode including the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price], or the Pyle PLCM38FRV[plb_101465_price].

Very Low Minimum Illumination

The Pyle PLCM21 has a fairly low minimum illumination (only 0.3 lux) compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type. Low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PLCM21 have minimum illumination of between 0.05lx and 5lx.

Chart Edit

Very Low Typical Power Consumption

The average typical power consumption of similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years is 4.1W. At only 1 Watt, the Pyle PLCM21 has a fairly low typical power consumption compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PLCM21.

13 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Pyle PLCM21 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out more than two years ago also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

The Pyle PLCM21 does not have a built-in microphone, unlike most of the other webcams that were released around the same time as the PLCM21 which have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is typical of many webcams of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Pyle PLCM21 is not USB powered. Most of the other webcams of this type and age are also not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the Logitech 3000[plb_961324_price], or the MSI StarCam Clip[plb_637711_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the PLCM21, the Pyle PLCM21 does 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

Like most of the other webcams of this spec and age, the Pyle PLCM21 is not Mac compatible.

If you are looking for a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might want to consider the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] which also has a higher rating.

With a maximum interpolated image resolution of only 1.3 megapixels, the Pyle PLCM21 has a quite low maximum interpolated image resolution compared to most of the other webcams of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Pyle PLCM21 does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the PLCM21 also do not have a zoom capability.

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

Webcams which are Full HD that might also be worth looking at include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pyle PLCM21

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Pyle PLCM21 has a pretty average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the PLCM21.

Alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available that you might want to consider include the Logitech Pro9000 [plb_546300_price] which has better reviews.

Webcams with a higher maximum frame rate that might also be worth looking at include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps).
