6 Reasons For

Fairly Wide Vertical Vewing Angle

At 170 degrees, the Pyle PLCM19 has a fairly wide vertical vewing angle compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for more than two years. The narrowest vertical vewing angle of webcams of a similar age and type to the PLCM19 is 29°, the widest is 170°, and the average vertical vewing angle is 84°.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Cable Length

Across all the low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the PLCM19 the cable lengths range from 0.73m to 5.7m. At 5 meters, the Pyle PLCM19 has a fairly long cable length compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the PLCM19.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

Unlike most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the PLCM19 which do not have a night mode, the Pyle PLCM19 has a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1 is also worth considering.

170 Viewing Angles

The Pyle PLCM19 is a 170 degrees viewing angle webcam. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the PLCM19 only have between 54 and 169 viewing angles.

Chart Edit

Very Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

The horizontal viewing angles of low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the PLCM19 range from 45° to 170°. When compared to other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PLCM19 that we have assessed, the horizontal viewing angle of the Pyle PLCM19 of 170 degrees is one of the widest.

1/3" Optical Sensor Size

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the PLCM19 do not feature face tracking. The Pyle PLCM19 is no exception to this as it too does 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 ($79.79).

There are a number of other webcams which also have a snapshot button which you might also want to look at including the C250 ($10.00), or the C600 both from Logitech which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pyle PLCM19

Average Maximum Frame Rate

The Pyle PLCM19 has a pretty standard maximum frame rate (30 frames per second) compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the PLCM19.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the LifeCam Cinema ($44.99), or the LifeCam HD-5000 both from Microsoft.

Webcams with a higher maximum frame rate that might also be worth looking at include the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (60fps).
