Chart Edit

Very Long Cable Length

The cable lengths of low megapixel webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PLCM38FRV range from 0.73m to 5.7m, and the average cable length is 1.9m.

There are a number of other webcams with a night mode currently available which you might want to look at including the PLCM21[pl_101453_price], or the PLCM19[pl_101449_price] both from Pyle which is cheaper; or the Konig IP Camera[plb_1355515_price] which has better reviews.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The PLCM38FRV does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years 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 webcams that have been around for more than two years.

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

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Pyle PLCM38FRV is not USB powered, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years are also not USB powered.

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

Chart Edit

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 Satzuma SZ-UWM200[plb_2787714_price], or the Logitech C250[plb_101761_price] is also worth considering.
