Genius Has Good Reviews for Its Webcams

Genius has good average reviews for its low megapixel webcams as well as across its entire webcam range.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The FaceCam 1000X has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in microphone.

We compared all the other webcams with a built-in microphone to this webcam and we think the Acme United CA11, the Logitech C160 ($25.00), and the Microsoft LifeCam VX-800 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
