5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Creative Labs has good average reviews for its built-in microphone webcams as well as across its entire webcam range.

Mac Compatibility

The Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD is mac compatibility, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years which are not mac compatibility.

We compared this webcam to all the other mac compatibility webcams and we think the C910[pl_377024_price], and the C615[pl_838859_price] both from Logitech which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite High Megapixel

With a megapixel of 8 megapixels, the Live! Cam Connect HD has one of the higher megapixels amongst webcams of this age. The average megapixel of built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than two years is 3.2MP.

There are a number of other 8MP webcams currently available that you might also want to consider including the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1479217_price], or the Logitech C615[plb_838859_price] which has better reviews.

If this Creative Labs webcam megapixel is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the A4Tech PK-950H[plb_2499372_price] (16MP).
