8 Reasons For
Good User Reviews
On average, people who bought this webcam rated it as 86%.
HP Webcams Have Good Reviews
We checked 220 expert and user reviews for HP webcams and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically for its webcams.
Easy to Use
One HP HD 2300 owner thought it performed as expected. Shilas mentioned on Amazon “Nice little camera, does exactly what it says on the tin” in their HP HD 2300 review.
Good Picture Quality
One HP HD 2300 reviewer concluded that the product produced a sharp image. Shilas wrote “Tested with skype - picture clear and sharp” and rated the HP HD 2300 as excellent.
The HD 2300 is USB powered. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years are not USB powered.
If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to consider the Genius FaceCam 320X[plb_1714404_price].
Has a Built-In Microphone
The HP HD 2300 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in microphone.
It may also be worth considering one of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech CC3000e[plb_2313340_price] which has better reviews.
It is worth considering other webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Approx APPWC03HD[plb_2432073_price].

This webcam has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is typical of many webcams of a similar age and type to it.
At only 55 grams, the HD 2300 is fairly light compared to most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the HD 2300. The lightest comparable spec webcam that has been available for around the same time as the HD 2300 is 16g heavy, the heaviest is 840g, and the average weight is 190g.

Like most of the other webcams that came out around the same time as the HD 2300, the HD 2300 does not have a motion detector.

The price of the HD 2300 has increased by £2.16 in the last 19 days.

+5 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Zoom Capability
The HD 2300 does not have a zoom capability. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years also do not have a zoom capability.
We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Logitech CC3000e[plb_2313340_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not Full HD
Like most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the HD 2300, the HD 2300 is not Full HD.
Webcams which are Full HD that might also be worth looking at include the Logitech CC3000e[plb_2313340_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Night Mode
Most webcams of this type and age do not have a night mode. The HD 2300 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.
Does Not Have a Snapshot Button
Like most of the other webcams that came out around the same time as the HD 2300, the HD 2300 does not have a snapshot button.
It is worth also looking at alternative webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Approx APPWC03HD[plb_2432073_price].
