10 Reasons Against

Hercules Only Has Unexceptional Webcam Reviews

On average webcams made by Hercules are rated 67 out of 100, which is in the bottom 13% of all webcam brands that we have analysed.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most low megapixel count webcams that came out more than two years ago do not have a motion detector. The Hercules Link is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the Hercules Link is not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth looking at include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02), or the HP KQ245AA which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Hercules Link does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age also do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 (£52.02) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for more than two years, the Hercules Link is not Mac compatible.

If you are looking for a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to look at the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Hercules Link does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been around for a similar time to the Link also do not have a snapshot button.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might want to look at including the Logitech C600.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the Link do not have a zoom capability. The Hercules Link is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Quite Short Cable Length

The Hercules Link has one of the shorter cable lengths (only 1.5 meters) amongst low megapixel count webcams of this age. Across all the low megapixel count webcams that were released more than two years ago the cable lengths range from 0.73m to 5.7m.

4 Other reasons to consider the Hercules Link

Average Maximum Frame Rate

The Hercules Link has a fairly typical maximum frame rate (30 frames per second) compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the Link.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (£36.92), the MSI StarCam Clip, or the Logitech C600.

If you would prefer a higher maximum frame rate then you might also want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) (60fps).
