3 Reasons For

Windows 8 Windows Operating Systems Supported

The Defender G-lens 321 supports a Windows 8 windows operating systems supported which is newer than the Windows 7 Home Premium windows operating systems supported supported by most similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as it. This webcam also support Windows 2000, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Basic x64, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Professional x64, Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Starter x64, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows 8 Enterprise x64 and Win windows operating systems supporteds. Webcams of a similar age and spec to the Defender G-lens 321 windows operating systems supporteds range from Windows 2000 Professional to Windows 8 Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of webcams of a similar age and spec to the Defender G-lens 321 range from 2x to 10x, and the average digital zoom is 4.6x. The Defender G-lens 321 has one of the bigger digital zooms (10 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The Defender G-lens 321 has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other built-in microphone webcams that were released around the same time as the Defender G-lens 321 which do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech TV Cam HD (£31.65), and the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (£37.06) is also worth considering.

10 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £4.88

The price of the Defender G-lens 321 has increased by £4.88 in the last 61 days.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for a similar time to the Defender G-lens 321, the Ironkey Defender G-lens 321 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Very Low Megapixel

The Defender G-lens 321 has a quite low megapixel (only 0.3 megapixels) compared to most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the Defender G-lens 321. The lowest megapixel of similar spec webcams that have been around for around the same time as the Defender G-lens 321 is 0.1MP, the highest is 20MP, and the average megapixel is 3.2MP.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 0.3MP webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Konig IP Camera (£29.95).

If you want a higher megapixel then you might also want to look at the Genius WideCam F100 (£27.60) (12MP), or the A4Tech PK-950H (16MP) which also has a higher rating.
