Chart Edit

This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is typical of many webcams of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Unlike most of the other medium megapixel webcams that were launched more than two years ago which do not have a snapshot button, the HD-3100 has a snapshot button.

Other webcams with a snapshot button currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price], or the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price].

7 Reasons Against

The HD-3100 does not have a motion detector, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium megapixel webcams that have been available for a similar time to the HD-3100 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the HD-3100, the HD-3100 does not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price] is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The HD-3100 does not have a night mode, although keep in mind that most of the other medium megapixel webcams that were released more than two years ago also do not have a night mode.
