5 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This webcam received a rating of 70% from expert review website clubic.com.

Good Product Quality

Three Hercules HD Emotion owners wrote in their reviews that this webcam was good quality. C. Murray wrote in their review of this webcam three years ago “Good quality webcam”. C. Murray also mentioned “Great quality image and very easy to install”.

Features Face Tracking

The Hercules HD Emotion features face tracking, unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HD Emotion which do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which feature face tracking to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech C910 is also worth considering.

Other webcams which also feature face tracking that you might also want to consider include the Speed-Link Reflect (£5.67).

11 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One Hercules HD Emotion reviewer who bought this webcam considered that it did not have a good microphone. C. Murray said on Amazon “Only down side is there is no audio” in their review of the Hercules HD Emotion however despite that they gave it a score of 5 stars.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Microphone

The Hercules HD Emotion does not have a built-in microphone, unlike most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to the HD Emotion.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Like most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the HD Emotion, the Hercules HD Emotion is not USB powered.

If you would prefer a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the C930e (£60.00), or the C910 both from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The HD Emotion is not mac compatibility, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for a similar time to the HD Emotion are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth looking at include the Logitech C910, or the Genius FaceCam 320 (£8.87) which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The HD Emotion is not full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the HD Emotion are also not full HD.

If you are looking for a webcam that is full HD then you might want to consider the C930e (£60.00), or the C910 both from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The HD Emotion does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years also do not have a snapshot button.
