4 Reasons For

Very Long Cable Length

With a cable length of 5 meters, the Pyle PLCM21 has one of the longer cable lengths amongst low megapixel webcams of this age. The cable lengths of low megapixel webcams that came out more than two years ago range from 0.73m to 5.7m.

Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The Pyle PLCM21 has a night mode. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released around the same time as the PLCM21 do not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative webcams with a night mode currently available including the Pyle PLCM19[plb_101449_price] which is cheaper; or the Konig IP Camera[plb_1355515_price] which has better reviews.

Other webcams which also have a night mode that you might want to look at include the Pyle PLCM38FRV[plb_101465_price].

Very Low Minimum Illumination

With a minimum illumination of only 0.3 lux, the Pyle PLCM21 has a fairly low minimum illumination compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that came out around the same time as the PLCM21. The lowest minimum illumination of webcams that were released more than two years ago is 0.05lx, the highest is 2lx, and the average minimum illumination is 1lx.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (typical)

At only 1 Watt, the Pyle PLCM21 has a fairly low power consumption (typical) compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that came out more than two years ago. The lowest power consumption (typical) of low megapixel webcams that came out around the same time as the PLCM21 is 1W, the highest is 6.8W, and the average power consumption (typical) is 4.1W.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been around for around the same time as the PLCM21, the Pyle PLCM21 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

The Pyle PLCM21 does not have a built-in microphone. Most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released around the same time as the PLCM21 do have a built-in microphone.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Satzuma SZ-UWM200[plb_2787714_price], the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price], or the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price].

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is typical of many webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Pyle PLCM21 is not USB powered, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for a similar time to the PLCM21 are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price], the Kloner KWC0078[plb_1854260_price], or the Gembird A4-GWJ-800[plb_473274_price].

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Pyle PLCM21 does not feature face tracking, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years also do not feature face tracking.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

The Pyle PLCM21 is not mac compatibility. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the PLCM21 are also not mac compatibility.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Interpolated Image Resolution

Across all the low megapixel webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the PLCM21 the maximum interpolated image resolutions range from 1.3MP to 16MP, and the average maximum interpolated image resolution is 8.4MP. With a maximum interpolated image resolution of only 1.3 megapixels, the Pyle PLCM21 has a quite low maximum interpolated image resolution compared to most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the PLCM21.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Pyle PLCM21 does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not have a snapshot button.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Satzuma SZ-UWM200[plb_2787714_price], or the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price] which is also cheaper.

2 Other reasons to consider the Pyle PLCM21

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Pyle PLCM21 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PLCM21.

We compared all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams to this webcam and we think cheaper webcams such as the Pyle PLCM19[plb_101449_price], and the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price] is also worth considering.
