5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Webcams manufactured by HP have an average rating of 86 out of 100, which is in the top 14% of all webcam brands that we have analysed.

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years which are not USB powered, the AU165AA is USB powered.

There are a number of other USB powered webcams currently available which you might want to look at including the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The AU165AA has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other low megapixel webcams that were released around the same time as the AU165AA.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price].

Other webcams which also have a built-in microphone that you might want to consider include the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price], or the Hercules Link[plb_1022846_price].

1280 X 1024 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the HP AU165AA is 1280 x 1024 pixels. That's over four times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution. Across all webcams that were released around the same time as the AU165AA the best video resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels and the worst is 640 x 480 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Snapshot Button

The HP AU165AA has a snapshot button, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams with a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to look at include the APPWC02[pl_464230_price], or the APPWC02W[pl_464235_price] both from Approx.

7 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One HP AU165AA reviewer who reviewed the product considered that it was not good quality. Christian Parker mentioned “Webcam itself is fine, picture quality isn't amazing” in his review.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The HP AU165AA does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age also do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
