With a megapixel of 5 megapixels, the Hercules HD Sunset has a fairly high megapixel compared to most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the HD Sunset. Webcams that were released more than two years ago have megapixels of between 0.1MP and 20MP.
We compared all the other 5MP webcams to this webcam and we think the C170[pl_824911_price], and the B990[pl_746748_price] both from Logitech or the Hercules HD Twist[plb_365539_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this webcam megapixel is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Creative Labs Live! Cam Chat HD[plb_1479412_price] (5.7MP and higher rated), the Genius FaceCam 321[plb_1787710_price] (8MP and higher rated), or the LogiLink UA0172[plb_1864970_price] (8MP and higher rated).
