I’ve been using the amcrest AWC201-B for the last several months now and figured it was time to share my thoughts on it.
The AWC201-B is a compact 1080P webcam featuring a built in microphone and long attached USB 2.0 Camera. The ⅓” CMOS image sensor features a wide 70° viewing angle with a 4mm max focal length.
The webcam comes with a stick on privacy cover:
|Resolution||2MP (1920 x 1080)|
|Field of View||70° Wide View|
|Privacy Cover||Included (Sticker attachment)|
|Microphone||Built-in (High Sensitivity Microphone)|
|Cable||Attached – 5ft 5 inch|
|OS Compatibility||Windows 10 | Mac OS | Android ||
With a built in adjusted stand you are able to easily adapt the camera to different mounting points allowing for great versatility. An included mini tripod is a great addition that adds value to the camera.
The built in Microphone is not the greatest as is usually the case with webcams, so I do recommend having a dedicated microphone / headset for audio.
The AWC201-B works well with webex and provides a good video image without breaking the bank, and with a long attached USB cable you can easily mount the camera wherever you need to.
