Design

Poor Product Quality

One HP AU165AA reviewer who reviewed this webcam considered that it was not good quality. Christian Parker wrote “Webcam itself is fine, picture quality isn't amazing” in his review of the HP AU165AA but despite that he scored it 80 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The HP AU165AA has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams that are a comparable age to this webcam also have a built-in microphone.

There are a number of alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available which you might want to look at including the Approx APPWC02W (£12.08) which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a built-in microphone including the Genius FaceCam 321 (£13.47), or the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.04).

Average Megapixel

With a megapixel of 1.3 megapixels, the AU165AA has a pretty average megapixel compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to this webcam.

Other 1.3MP webcams currently available that you might want to look at include the Approx APPWC02W (£12.08) which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a webcam with a higher megapixel then you might want to look at the L-Link LL-4184 (£9.82) (5MP) which is also cheaper.

Has a Snapshot Button

The HP AU165AA has a snapshot button, as do most of the other webcams that have been around for around the same time as this webcam.

We compared all the other webcams with a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the Approx APPWC02W (£12.08), and the Satzuma SZ-UWM200 (£9.95) both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a snapshot button which you might want to consider including the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.04).
