Compro vs. Connectix

I have played with the Compro camera and there are several nice features
that put it above the Connectix Camera. Here is a short list:

Pass through Parallel port - This is nice because you can have the camera
and your printer plugged in at the same time.
Configurable scan rate - This illimates the oscillation of the brightness
in the video.
Sturdy construction - By far this device is constructed better than the
QCam.
Picture Quality - The image quality is better than the QCam.

There is one major drawback that the QCam has an advantage - frame rate. I
was never able to get the DCam to go over 4 fps. It delivers 24bit color
at all times, which is likely the bottleneck.
