3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago, the Emtec Snake has a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think because of it's better review score, the Genius FaceCam 1000X (£13.50), the Hercules Link (£10.99), and the V7 Elite HD Webcam 2000 (£11.88) is also worth considering.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Emtec Snake has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The worst video resolution of all webcams of a similar type and age to the Snake is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Chart Edit

1/2" Optical Sensor Size

The biggest optical sensor size of the Emtec Snake is 1/2". That's over three times the optical sensor size of a 1/6" webcam, which is the most frequently found optical sensor size. 6.40 x 4.80mm.

This webcam's optical sensor size (1/2") is in fact the best optical sensor size amongst all webcams that are a similar age to the Snake.

The worst optical sensor size across comparable types of webcam is 1/7".

10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Two experts from sites including slam-zine.de and svmlemag.fr have rated this webcam on average 53%. This puts this low megapixel webcam in the bottom 12% of all the webcams of a similar spec and age when ranked by average expert review score.

Price Increase of £1.39

In the last 51 days the price of the Snake has increased by £1.39.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Emtec Snake 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

Most webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Snake are not USB powered. The Emtec Snake is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth looking at include the C110 (£9.95), or the C160 both from Logitech or the HP AU165AA (£9.99).

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Emtec Snake does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the Snake also do not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Logitech C110 (£9.95).

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the Snake, the Emtec Snake is not mac compatibility.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Emtec Snake does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago 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 APPWC02 (£12.08), or the APPWC02W (£12.08) both from Approx or the HP AU165AA (£9.99) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Emtec Snake does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this age and type also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Genius FaceCam 1000X (£13.50) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the Snake, the Emtec Snake does not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Emtec Snake is not full HD. Most of the other similar spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the Snake are also not full HD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Emtec Snake

Released Over Four Years Ago

Emtec released the Snake over four years ago.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Emtec Snake has a pretty standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the APPWC02 (£12.08), or the APPWC02W (£12.08) both from Approx or the Logitech C160 which has better reviews.
