Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this Media-Tech webcam was released.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Media-Tech MT4040 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the MT4040 also do not have a motion detector.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a motion detector that you might want to look at including the Logitech C270.

Average Megapixel

With a megapixel of 2 megapixels, the Media-Tech MT4040 has a relatively standard megapixel compared to most of the other webcams that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this webcam to all the other 2MP webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the HP KQ245AA is also worth considering.

Webcams with a higher megapixel that might be worth looking at include the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack (£19.10) (5MP).

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Media-Tech MT4040 is 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of the most frequently found maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution amongst all webcams that were launched more than two years ago.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is the worst video resolution across similar types of webcam.
