Great Webcam / Mic

Joseph P., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Summary: It's a good camera, so give it a chance.
  • Pros: Very sturdy webcame, clear image too! And has a nice clip on it for laptops or putting somewhere convenient. LED lights turn on when its dark, to illuminate your face. Great for Skype chat. Paid only $20 for it. A Great Value!
  • Cons: Windows will not recognize it without the included Driver installed, so make sure you keep that handy, if you have to reinstall it on another PC. Included software was weird and not so useful. The LED lights sometimes can't make up their mind, and turn on and off if the ambient light is dark, but...

  • Pros: Works as advertised. Image quality is clear for the relatively low number of megapixels. The glass really helps. The LED lights give off the proper amount of brightness, not too much and not too little. The microphone is actually pretty good. I use it in VOIP all the time for gaming. It's metalli...
  • Cons: I bought two and one of the ones I got stopped working. It seemed to be a physical or hardware problem because when I tapped the back of the case it would work occasionally for an hour or two... This is probably where they sacrificed along the line- the manufacturing quality. I was still under wa...

Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass

Rafael I., Newegg
1 January 2011
  • Summary: One day, there will be a webcam built in to a monitor just like the webcams built in to a laptop.
  • Pros: The built-in microphone allows you to talk without a headset. The resolution is clear and images are well defined. You can adjust the resolution according to your preference and the image image captures are excellent. I have had this webcam for more than a year and it takes my vote "best bang for...
  • Cons: No cons!!

Quality Product

Alex S., Newegg
29 December 2010
  • Summary: Great webcam for a first time buyer.
  • Pros: I've had this for a couple of years now and it's been solid the entire time. I've dropped it a couple of times with no issues. The camera lens cover is a nice feature. The LEDs really help. There's an earpiece and mic that come with it that work nicely and are cosmetically appealing. The sound qu...
  • Cons: The earpiece isn't exactly sturdy, I broke mine after about a year - the input jack ripped off. But that was probably more of my doing than the part itself. The software was kind of hard to set up initially, even for myself and I'm a programmer and tech geek. It was kind of buggy at first where i...

Simply Great

John P., Newegg
16 November 2010
  • Summary: The range of motion thing aside, this is a great camera & works well with Skype & other programs such as MS Messenger (for which there is software expressly for this camera). It does use a fair amount of USB bandwidth, so if your USB ports (front and back) look like an octopus wrestling with a...
  • Pros: 2 and a half years, and it's still going strong. Good picture. Solidly built. Good mic. Can be clipped to LCD monitors provided they're thin enough. Software from the Hercules site has improved considerably.
  • Cons: Clip has a rather small "gripping" surface that's really best suited for laptops; LCD monitors need to be thin, and even then the grip isn't exactly solid (though it does work). Somewhat limited range of motion between camera and mount. Vertical surfaces (such as laptop lid, LCD monitors, etc.) a...

Great Skype camera

Jeremy H., Newegg
21 September 2010
  • Summary: Not sure about for other applications but for online video chat more than adequate.

Attention: Microsoft update

robin h., Newegg
5 September 2010
  • Summary: if you go to the microsoft update site and select custom option you'll see an update specifically for that camera on the hardware tap. i use xp_sp3. and you should keep it plugged in before going to the Microsoft update site so it can be detected during scan.
  • Pros: best camera for the price. even better (more stable) with special MS update. works with linux....no issues
  • Cons: non, zip, zero.....well i wish they machines the lens with knurling to grip more easily. a small thing really.
