6 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This webcam has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many webcams of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Very Wide Vertical Vewing Angle

At 170 degrees, the PLCM38FRV has a very wide vertical vewing angle compared to most of the other webcams of this spec and age. The narrowest vertical vewing angle of webcams of this age and type is 29°, the widest is 170°, and the average vertical vewing angle is 84°.

Chart Edit

Very Long Cable Length

With a cable length of 5.7 meters, the PLCM38FRV has a very long cable length compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago. The cable lengths of webcams of this age and type range from 0.73m to 5.7m.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

Unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the PLCM38FRV which do not have a night mode, the PLCM38FRV has a night mode.

Chart Edit

Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

At 170 degrees, the PLCM38FRV has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the PLCM38FRV. Across all the similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as the PLCM38FRV the horizontal viewing angles range from 45° to 170°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 90°.

313200 Physical Resolutions

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The PLCM38FRV does not have a motion detector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the PLCM38FRV also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

The PLCM38FRV does not have a built-in microphone, unlike most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the PLCM38FRV which have a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum video resolution on low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The PLCM38FRV is not USB powered, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to the PLCM38FRV are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth considering include the V7 CS720A0[plb_1433005_price] which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

Most webcams of this spec and age are not Mac compatible. The PLCM38FRV is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

If you want a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might want to consider the HP 2100[plb_1498311_price] which also has a higher rating.

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the PLCM38FRV, the PLCM38FRV 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 V7 CS720A0[plb_1433005_price] is also worth considering.
