2 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Thrustmaster Link has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Full HD

The Thrustmaster Link is Full HD, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Link which are not Full HD.

Alternative Full HD webcams currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD, or the Logitech TV Cam HD (£186.19).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Thrustmaster Link does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Thrustmaster Link is not USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the Link are also not USB powered.

If you want a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02), or the HP KQ245AA.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Thrustmaster Link does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the Link 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 (£52.02) 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 Thrustmaster Link is not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might also be worth considering include the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Thrustmaster Link does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context 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 Logitech C600 is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most webcams that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a zoom capability. The Thrustmaster Link is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02), or the HP KQ245AA which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Thrustmaster Link does not have a night mode, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the Link also do 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 (£14.90) is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Thrustmaster Link

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Thrustmaster Link has a fairly average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the Link.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (£36.92), the MSI StarCam Clip, or the Logitech C600.

If this webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps).
