5 Reasons For

Very Long Cable Length

The average cable length of webcams of this age and spec is 1.9m. When compared to other webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the PLCM38FRV that we have checked, the cable length of the PLCM38FRV of 5.7 meters is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The PLCM38FRV has a night mode. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the PLCM38FRV do not have a night mode.

We compared all the other webcams with a night mode to this webcam and we think the Konig IP Camera[plb_1355515_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the PLCM38FRV have vertical vewing angles of between 29° and 170°, and the average vertical vewing angle is 92°. When compared to other low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago, the vertical vewing angle of the Pyle PLCM38FRV of 170 degrees is one of the widest.

11 Reasons Against

Alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone that you might want to look at include the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price]; or the V7 CS720A0[plb_1433005_price].
