Hercules Dualpix Exchange 2MP HD Webcam


There are a lot of choices when it comes to purchasing a webcam, but thanks to Hercules Dualpix Exchange this task has become easier than ever. Hercules packs the Dualpix Exchange with 2 Mega Pixels, a built in microphone, and their own Webcam Station...

Records videos + 2MP photos ; Works out of the box with both XP and Vista ; Very user friendly Software ; Great Looks and excellent build quality ; Built in Microphone

Doesn't record smooth videos at advertised resolution ; Zoom could be better

I have personally never had any experience with Hercules products before, since this being my first product, my experience was nothing but overwhelming aside from from the fact it wasn't able to record smooth videos at advertised resolution, which in...

support poor


Webcam works ok once you manage to get it set up. Driver decent for a cheap webcam, includes zoom

Drivers did not load by clicking setup.exe on the CD, but I was able to get them from the mfrs website. There was no manual on the CD nor downloadable from the website. There is a quick start guide, but nowhere does it tell you that the webcam is...

A Mistake.


Replaced it with a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000. Very pleased with it.

The camera is attractive-looking and inexpensive

I'm not sure how this camera performs under Windows, but in Ubuntu and Mac OS X, this UVC-spec camera performs abysmally. I recently moved my main workstation from my 13" MacBook Pro to a Linux desktop (tried Ubuntu and Debian), so I needed a webcam to...

Gets the job done


Gets the job done

Resolution lower than preferred. No special features of any sort. But you get what you pay for

Great Value-Priced Cam


Use this to video chat with family and friends on the Eastern seaboard, and it works well. The mic is pretty good too and doesn't echo too badly. Its still a web cam. The high res is ineterpolated from a 640X480 resolution. For a webcam in this price...

Affordable ; Nice Resolution ; Glass Lens

High res is interpolated, but still its not bad

Consumer review by:

decent for the price


you get what you pay for

cheap ; 640x480 quality isn't too bad

1280 x 960 is AWFUL and a bad marketing ploy

Hercules Dualpix Exchange



For the price I have not found a camera with a cleaner and clearer image. With all the drivers installed, and using the camera through Skype the lag seems at most a second or so behind, this makes webcam visits over the interwebs quite tolerable

The griping mechanism of the camera is not terribly secure and falls easily off the monitor

Consumer review by:

Ok for the money


Not really good for use in the evening or darkened office/room. Requires good lighting condition to communicate.

Small and Inexpensive


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.

very nice camera


very highly recommended

very nice screen resolution, easy to configure brightness/contrast/esposure, easy to swivel head, light weight, good webcam for the price

it would have been nice if the cord wasnt so stiff, or if there was a way to place the camera on a flat surface instead of mount it to a monitor. the cord coming out the back of it makes it very hard to put anywhere other than on top of a monitor, like...
