USB Powered

Unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the Pro 9000 which are not USB powered, the Pro 9000 is USB powered.

We compared all the other USB powered webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price], the Logitech 3000[plb_961324_price], and the Media-Tech MT4040[plb_1754232_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Pro 9000 has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the Pro 9000.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech 960-000842-981-000094[plb_3238822_price], the LogiLink UA0161[plb_1756643_price], or the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Pro 9000 has a maximum video resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution across all webcams of a similar type and age to the Pro 9000.

Across similar types of webcam the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Pro 9000 does not have a motion detector. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been around for around the same time as the Pro 9000 also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Pro 9000 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the Pro 9000 also do not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the LogiLink WC0020[plb_798362_price].

Not Mac Compatible

Most webcams of a similar spec and age to the Pro 9000 are not Mac compatible. The Pro 9000 is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

If you want a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to look at the UA0075[pl_141810_price], or the WC0020[pl_798362_price] both from LogiLink or the Logitech C300[plb_446165_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Pro 9000 does not have a snapshot button, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the Pro 9000 also do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might want to consider include the C250[pl_101761_price], or the C600[pl_497439_price] both from Logitech or the Tracer Gizmo[plb_1994550_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most webcams that have been around for around the same time as the Pro 9000 do not have a zoom capability. The Pro 9000 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Advent AWC213[plb_2665931_price], the iMicro CAM-IMC851[plb_2269736_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the Pro 9000 does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the PLCM37FRV[pl_99996_price], the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], or the PLCM21[pl_101453_price] all from Pyle is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

Most similar spec webcams that were released more than two years ago are not Full HD. The Pro 9000 is no exception to this as it too is not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might be worth looking at include the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price], or the Hama Digital Eye II PRO[plb_1805273_price] which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech Pro 9000

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Pro 9000 has a relatively typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema[plb_85750_price], the V7 Elite Webcam 2000[plb_683310_price], or the Logitech Pro9000 [plb_546300_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a webcam with a higher maximum frame rate then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps and higher rated), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps and higher rated).
