Has a Built-In Microphone

The Ewent EW1226 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as this webcam.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech C270, the HP Deluxe, or the LogiLink UA0172 which has better reviews.

Released Over Four Years Ago

Ewent released the EW1226 in April 2017.


Very Low Megapixel

Across all the webcams of a similar type and age to this webcam the megapixels range from 0.3MP to 20MP, and the average megapixel is 2.4MP. The Ewent EW1226 has a fairly low megapixel (only 1 megapixel) compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this webcam to all the other 1MP webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the HP USB HD 720p v2 Business Webcam, the Samsung VG-STC2000, and the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (£39.95) is also worth considering.

If this webcam megapixel is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Canyon CNE-CWC1 (1.3MP), the Rocksoul WC-102 (1.3MP), or the Advent AWC213 (1.3MP) which also has a higher rating.
