On average, based on 6 user reviews this medium megapixel count webcam has an overall user rating of 80%.

Easy to Use

One person who reviewed the Speed-Link Snappy reckoned that it was easy to use. Mr T J Thorpe said in his Speed-Link Snappy review on Amazon “This was sold as PC or Mac usb Webcam easy to connect up and simple to use” but in spite of that he only gave it a rating of 40 out of 100.

One customer who reviewed it considered that it was good in terms of USB connections.

Robust

One Speed-Link Snappy reviewer who reviewed it considered that it was well made. Xsreviews.co.uk mentioned in their review of the Speed-Link Snappy on expert review site XSreviews.co.uk “If you’re looking for a snappy looking (excuse the pun), well built mobile mouse that does exactly what y”.

Features Face Tracking

The Speed-Link Snappy features face tracking, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of alternative webcams which feature face tracking currently available that you might want to look at including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years, the Speed-Link Snappy has a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Genius FaceCam 321, the L-Link LL-4186, or the LogiLink UA0172 which has better reviews.

Has a Snapshot Button

The Speed-Link Snappy has a snapshot button, unlike most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years which do not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams with a snapshot button to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack, and the LogiLink UA0172 is also worth considering.
