Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass

 

The Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass is a decent webcam, and at a mere 25 bucks, it's a ridiculously good buy.

Low price. Snazzy design. Built-in LEDs help with low-light video. Versatile lens mount. Easy-to-use capture software

Video resolution tops out at 640 by 480. Poor image quality. Problems with audio-video sync. Awkward manual focus ring

This inexpensive, travel-friendly webcam offers a surprising number of extras, but video quality leaves much to be desired.

Hercules - Webcam Deluxe Optical Glass

 

High-definition (HD) and widescreen devices dominate the high-end webcam market - and with the soaring popularity of video chat via Skype, it's a trend we we fully expect to see continue. But if your needs are ...

The technology may be far from ground-breaking, but Hercules' Webcam Deluxe Optical Glass is a solid budget webcam, particularly suited to low light use. As an entry-level unit, or one for occasional use, it's just the job.

DOA on video

 

it's odd.. The build quality looked good, same with the specs... The video would not function, audio did work, but this isn't a microphone, it's a webcam and I need video. Shame, I bet this could've been a decent device. had to RMA. it cost me 8.50 to...

Missing Piece.

 

The webcam works great, has nice LED's for lighting. Simple usb hookup. The clip is useful for hooking it onto the monitor

Didn't include the "included" headset. Not that I was going to be using it, but still. I got ripped off. Very disappointed that they didn't include a part they said they would include

Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass USB 2.0 WebCam

 

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...

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-...

Good, solid construction, but download the software

 

I've only had it for a few hours, and in researching cameras I found that over time web cam parts have a tendency to break, so time will tell on it's durability. But except for the software installation difficulty mentioned in the Cons (hence the four...

I was surprised to see that the camera body itself is of metal construction. The clip is good and strong. Decent image control and other basic camera features

The installation for both the drivers and software (v3.2) on the included CD hung up every time I tried to install it - I'm running WinXP SP3. However I downloaded v3.4 from the Hercules website and that installed fine. The clip may not be suitable for...

Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass

 

One day, there will be a webcam built in to a monitor just like the webcams built in to a laptop.

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...

No cons
