12 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This webcam received an "On Target Award" from Topreviewshop.com.

Expert Reviews Are Average

This medium megapixel count webcam has an average expert rating of 70 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including topreviewshop.com and computertotaal.nl.

Easy to Use

One Hercules HD Twist reviewer who reviewed it thought it was easy to use. Topreviewshop.com said “Easy to use” and scored the product 4 stars. One customer who reviewed this webcam concluded that it was easy to setup.

Good Product Quality

One person considered that it was good quality. In October last year Melvyn mentioned on Amazon “Item as described good quality”.

Nice Design

One Hercules HD Twist reviewer said in their reviews that the product was a good design. Topreviewshop.com said in their review “Flexible and colorful design”.

Good Picture Quality

One Hercules HD Twist reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it produced clear images. Three years ago K. Taylor wrote “Its a good little webcam, with clear image” in their review of the Hercules HD Twist.

Features Face Tracking

The HD Twist features face tracking, unlike most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the HD Twist which do not feature face tracking.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative webcams which feature face tracking currently available including the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price], or the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack[plb_1796403_price] which has better reviews.

USB Powered

The HD Twist is USB powered, which is unusual. Most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the HD Twist are not USB powered.

It may also be worth considering one of the other USB powered webcams currently available including the Trust Trino[plb_1437280_price], or the Labtec C270[plb_1912361_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other webcams of this spec and age, the Hercules HD Twist has a built-in microphone.

There are a number of other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available which you might want to consider including the L-Link LL-4186[plb_2285710_price], the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price], or the V7 Professional HD Webcam 720P[plb_1508635_price] which has better reviews.

USB Interface

This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is the most commonly found interface on webcams of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Full HD

The Hercules HD Twist is Full HD, unlike most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the HD Twist which are not Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Full HD webcams currently available including the V7 Professional HD Webcam 720P[plb_1508635_price] which has better reviews.

Very Long Cable Length

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Average Owner Reviews

On average, based on 17 owner reviews the average owner rating of this medium megapixel count webcam is 69 out of 100.

Unexceptional Brand

Hercules has ok reviews for its medium megapixel count webcams, however it has unexceptional average reviews when measured across its entire webcam range.

Chart

Poor Support

One customer who bought the product considered that it did not have good technical guidance. Four years ago Ar said “There seems to be no proper help from the manufacturer unless you are a commercial users”.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The HD Twist does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the HD Twist also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

The HD Twist is not Mac compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that were launched more than two years ago are also not Mac compatible.

If you are looking for a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to look at the Creative Labs Live! Cam Sync HD[plb_1479303_price].

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Like most of the other webcams of this spec and age, the Hercules HD Twist does not have a snapshot button.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a snapshot button including the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price], the Trust Trino[plb_1437280_price], or the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack[plb_1796403_price].

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the HD Twist, the Hercules HD Twist does not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a zoom capability including the L-Link LL-4186[plb_2285710_price], or the NGS SpringCam300[plb_1316472_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the HD Twist, the HD Twist does not have a night mode.

It is worth considering alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack[plb_1796403_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Digital Zoom

Across all the webcams of this age and type the digital zoom range from 2x to 10x, and the average digital zoom is 4x. At only 3 times zoom factor, the HD Twist has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the HD Twist.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hercules HD Twist

Released Over Five Years Ago

This medium megapixel count webcam was released over five years ago.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the HD Twist has a fairly average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the HD Twist.

We compared this webcam to all the other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams and we think because of it's better review score, the Trust Trino[plb_1437280_price], and the Creative Labs Live! Cam Sync HD[plb_1479303_price] is also worth considering.
