Hercules Dualpix HD webcam

 

Hercules' latest webcam joins a relatively overcrowded market, so it's lucky that it has a few features that set it apart from similarly priced units. It's particularly cheap at only £27, which would immediately suggest a deficit in terms of features...

Cheap, Ready for any application that supports a video input, Impressive quality

Multi-mount clip could be more than effective, Range of movement is limited

Particularly cheap in price but the overall quality is more than adequate

Horrible investment

 

Don't buy these. We thought they were a good buy cause they were cheap but it turns out they were just CHEAP. I can't even give them 2 eggs beacuse it's not like they work but work poorly, they don't even work.

When they do work, they work okay

I work in I.T. for a theme park chain and we bought like 35 of these for our season pass computers, and maybe 1 in every 4 broke within the first 2 weeks. They just stop working and windows fails to recognize them from that point on. They show up as...

While it works 98 % of the time

 

Most of the Cons are justified by the price. As expected this web cam did not work on my Ubuntu Linux box. I regret now i did not invest more money for a better web cam.

Overall cam design is good, it stands on it's own or on the screen well. Easy position adjustments ; Reasonable cable length. Comfortable sharpness adjustment

Occasionally flicks between bright and dark ; unstable software, caused blue screen crash on Windows Xp 2 times in a span of one week ; shows slight imprint on the lens. Not ideal for skype, the bandwidth and frame rate was bad with the combination of...
