This webcam was given a "Recommended" award by M3.idg.se who thought that this HP webcam was good.

Expert Reviews Are Average

Based on two expert reviews from sites including toptenreviews.com and M3.idg.se the average expert rating of this low megapixel count webcam is 72%.

USB Powered

The KQ245AA is USB powered. Most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the KQ245AA are not USB powered.

We compared all the other USB powered webcams to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, and the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other webcams with a zoom capability currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the Logitech TV Cam HD (£186.19).

7 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One HP KQ245AA owner wrote that it was not good quality. Toptenreviews.com said “The video quality is relatively poor compared to other webcams” however despite that they still gave the product a score of 63 out of 100.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the KQ245AA do not have a motion detector. The KQ245AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams of a comparable age and type to the KQ245AA do not feature face tracking. The HP KQ245AA is no exception to this as it too does 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 is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the HP KQ245AA is not Mac compatible.

If you would prefer a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to consider the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams that came out around the same time as the KQ245AA do not have a night mode. The HP KQ245AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a night mode to this webcam and we think the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90) is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The KQ245AA is not Full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the KQ245AA are also not Full HD.
