2 Reasons For

Features Face Tracking

The Optical Glass features face tracking. Most of the other webcams of this age and type do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Optical Glass has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of this age and type.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

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

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Optical Glass is not USB powered, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the Optical Glass are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the MSI StarCam Clip.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Optical Glass is not mac compatibility. Most of the other similar spec webcams that were released more than two years ago are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth considering include the HP 2100 (£21.69) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Thrustmaster Optical Glass does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been available for more than two years also do not have a snapshot button.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the Optical Glass does not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of only 3 times zoom factor, the Thrustmaster Optical Glass has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other webcams that came out around the same time as the Optical Glass. Across all the webcams of this type and age the digital zooms range from 2x to 10x, and the average digital zoom is 4.6x.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of a comparable age and type to the Optical Glass do not have a night mode. The Thrustmaster Optical Glass is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

Other webcams which also have a night mode that you might also want to consider include the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90).

Not Full HD

The Optical Glass is not full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that are a similar age to the Optical Glass are also not full HD.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Minimum Hard Disk Space

The average minimum hard disk space of webcams of a similar age and spec to the Optical Glass is 360MB, and the minimum hard disk spaces range from 130MB to 1.6GB. The Thrustmaster Optical Glass has a fairly big minimum hard disk space (300 megabytes) compared to most of the other webcams of this type and age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Thrustmaster Optical Glass

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Optical Glass has a fairly typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech C600 (£16.25) is also worth considering.

Webcams with a higher maximum frame rate that might also be worth considering include the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10 (£10.46) (60fps).
