4 Reasons For

Very Long Cable Length

With a cable length of 5 meters, the Pyle PLCM21's cable length is one of the longest amongst webcams of a comparable spec and age to the PLCM21. Webcams that came out around the same time as the PLCM21 have cable lengths of between 0.73m and 5.7m.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The Pyle PLCM21 has a night mode. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for a similar time to the PLCM21 do not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] is also worth considering.
