9 Reasons For

Very Long Cable Length

The average cable length of similar spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago is 1.8m, and the cable lengths range from 0.73m to 5.7m. At 5 meters, the PLCM22IR has a quite long cable length compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The PLCM22IR has a night mode, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of this age and type do not have a night mode.

Other webcams with a night mode currently available which you might want to look at include the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], or the PLCM21[pl_101453_price] both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The heights of webcams that were launched more than two years ago range from 0.7" to 6.6". With a height of only 1.25 inches, the PLCM22IR is one of the shorter comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PLCM22IR amongst webcams of this age.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years do not have a motion detector. The Pyle PLCM22IR is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

The Pyle PLCM22IR does not have a built-in microphone, unlike most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the PLCM22IR which have a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Logitech 960-000842-981-000094[plb_3238822_price], the M-Cab 7009029[plb_1719083_price], or the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not USB Powered

Most webcams that have been available for more than two years are not USB powered. The PLCM22IR is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the Samsung VG-STC2000[plb_1514076_price], the Logitech 960-000271[plb_579964_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Pyle PLCM22IR does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for more than two years also do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price], or the Sweex WC350[plb_1842912_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

The PLCM22IR is not Mac compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this type and age are also not Mac compatible.

If you are looking for a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to look at the Logitech C300[plb_446165_price], or the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

The lowest maximum interpolated image resolution of webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the PLCM22IR is 1.3MP, the highest is 16MP, and the average maximum interpolated image resolution is 8.4MP. At only 1.3 megapixels, the Pyle PLCM22IR has a quite low maximum interpolated image resolution compared to most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The PLCM22IR does not have a snapshot button, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this spec and age also do not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the C250[pl_101761_price], or the C600[pl_497439_price] both from Logitech or the Tracer Gizmo[plb_1994550_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The PLCM22IR does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago 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 look at including the Logitech Broadcaster[plb_2611362_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pyle PLCM22IR

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the PLCM22IR has a pretty typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PLCM22IR.

Alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available that you might want to look at include the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema[plb_85750_price], or the Logitech B500[plb_546296_price] which has better reviews.

If this Pyle webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
