Great for the price

 

Looks cool, great design, long usb cable. Average cam otherwise

None so far

Consumer review by:

Software is very difficult to use

 

I wish I hadn't bought this camera.

Camera itself is small and looks nice

Software is really odd. I've spent 3-4 hours over the last several weeks trying to figure out how to do basic functions ; It seems to be split into two programs and the first program ('Chat and Show') has to launch the second program. The 2nd program...

Good Camera

 

Maybe the built in mic on the camera could be a little better, but nothing worth taking an egg off for.

Good camera for the price. Comes with a headset

None so far

Disappointed

 

My daughter opened the box and threw it away before I installed the device, so no sending it back. Most of the items I buy from New Egg are really good.

None

This camera is definitely not plug and play. I installed and uninstalled the software three times, both from the CD and from files downloaded from the Hercules website to no avail. The camera has a mind of its own. Sometimes it works for a few minutes,...

This camera is aight

The stand is weak, aight

Consumer review by:

Everything I hoped for...

 

A cheap, solid webcam that does everything I need and does it well.

Easy to set up and use. Had it working with Windows Live Messenger within minutes of hooking up. Provides a nice image, and the built in Mic is top-notch. Also, the mounting system for it is much better than many others I have seen. Very easy to get it...

None so far

Consumer review by:

Flawless

 

I haven't used the software that came with it. I use the web cam for Yahoo! Messenger, and it works great with it.

Everything. Worked as it should straight out of the box

Shipping was more than two days, but I didn't have to pay for shipping and that's not the camera's fault or Newegg's fault

Hercules Dualpix Chat and Show 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 Webcam

 

Probably just a fluke. Am sending back to try again.

Sharp picture, fit great on laptop

brown stripe through bottom of picture, sound would cut in and out

Consumer review by:

Not the picture quality I expected, but it'll do

 

The camera will do what I need it to, the drivers were easily obtained from the Hercules support site (CD comes with the camera, my drive is out of commision), camera looks cool and is much smaller than I thought it would be (bonus).

Good price - on sale, easy setup, intuitive features. No dead pixels (like the webcam this one is replacing). You can turn off the bright blue LED

I'll second the yellow tint from a previous reviewer. Using anything other than the standard resolution for pictures, you'll find an EXTREMELY grainy photo

Consumer review by:

Great cam

 

Well, a great price, two microphones, and an amazing quality cam with really no wait at all to get it. I recommend it if you want a cheaper cam without scratching off quality.

Well, first off Newegg rocks with free shipping AND i got it the next day after ordering last night. The picture quality is nice, installed software and plugged it in and it was ready to go, it has a mic built into the cam and also comes with a headset...

Only con i can think of is it has a built-in LED blue light, which is pretty dang bright, i haven't used it much yet but so far it's a little too bright for my liking. I just turn it off during use. Other than that? Nothing
