3 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The writer at one expert review site thought that this Ewent webcam was good. Hardware.info gave this webcam a "Bronze Award".

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the EW1226, the Ewent EW1226 has a built-in microphone.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech C250, the LogiLink UA0161, or the V7 CS1330 which has better reviews.

The Ewent EW1226 supports a Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion mac operating systems supported which is newer than the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion mac operating systems supported supported by most similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as it. In addition, this Ewent webcam support Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard mac operating systems supporteds. The Mac operating systems support of all webcams that were released more than two years ago ranges from Mac OS X 10.3 Panther to Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Ewent EW1226 does not have a motion detector, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of this spec and age also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Ewent EW1226 is not USB powered. Most of the other webcams of this type and age are also not USB powered.

If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the C250, or the 960-000271 both from Logitech or the Mediatech MT4030K.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams of a similar age and type to the EW1226 do not feature face tracking. The Ewent EW1226 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also feature face tracking which you might also want to consider including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the Thrustmaster Optical Glass which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Ewent EW1226 is not mac compatibility. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the LogiLink UA0075, the Logitech C300, or the A4Tech PK-635.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the EW1226 do not have a snapshot button. The Ewent EW1226 is no exception to this as it too does 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 C250, the HP KQ245AA, or the M-Cab 7009029 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Ewent EW1226 does not have a zoom capability. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the EW1226 also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, the Mediatech MT4030K, or the Advent AWC213 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other webcams that came out more than two years ago, the Ewent EW1226 does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the PLCM19, the PLCM21, or the PLCM22IR all from Pyle.

Not Full HD

The Ewent EW1226 is not full HD. Most of the other webcams of this age and spec are also not full HD.

4 Other reasons to consider the Ewent EW1226

Released Over Four Years Ago

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Ewent EW1226 has a fairly average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the EW1226.

We compared all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Pyle PLCM19, the A4Tech PK-635, and the LogiLink UA0161 is also worth considering.
