6 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This webcam has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many webcams that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Vertical Vewing Angle

Across all the webcams of this age and spec the vertical vewing angles range from 29° to 170°, and the average vertical vewing angle is 84°. At 170 degrees, the PLCM37FRV has a quite wide vertical vewing angle compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The Pyle PLCM37FRV has a night mode, unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a night mode.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a night mode that you might also want to consider including the Gembird CAM0360U-1.

Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

At 170 degrees, the Pyle PLCM37FRV has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the PLCM37FRV. The average horizontal viewing angle of comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the PLCM37FRV is 90°, and the horizontal viewing angles range from 45° to 170°.

Chart Edit

1/3" Optical Sensor Size

This webcam has a 1/3" optical sensor size, which is the most commonly found optical sensor size on low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to it. 4.80 x 3.60mm.

Chart Edit

Very Low Minimum Illumination

Across all the webcams of a similar age and spec to the PLCM37FRV the minimum illumination range from 0.05lx to 5lx, and the average minimum illumination is 1.4lx. At only 0.05 lux, the PLCM37FRV has a fairly low minimum illumination compared to most of the other webcams that have been available for a similar time to the PLCM37FRV.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Pyle PLCM37FRV does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the PLCM37FRV also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

Most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the PLCM37FRV have a built-in microphone, however the PLCM37FRV does not have a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

Only 560 X 540 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The PLCM37FRV has a maximum video resolution of 560 x 540 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of the most frequently found maximum video resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. Across all similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago the worst video resolution is 320 x 240 pixels and the best is 3200 x 2400 pixels.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Pyle PLCM37FRV is not USB powered, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the PLCM37FRV are also not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating.

There are a number of other webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to consider including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which is also higher rated.

Not Mac Compatible

Quite Low Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

Across all the webcams of this spec and age the maximum interpolated image resolutions range from 1.3MP to 16MP, and the average maximum interpolated image resolution is 8.4MP. The PLCM37FRV has one of the lowest maximum interpolated image resolutions (only 1.3 megapixels) amongst comparable spec webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Like most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years, the Pyle PLCM37FRV does not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the C250 ($10.00), or the C600 both from Logitech which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pyle PLCM37FRV

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Pyle PLCM37FRV has a relatively average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the LifeCam Cinema ($42.99), or the LifeCam HD-5000 both from Microsoft which has better reviews.

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