10 Reasons Against
Hercules Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Webcams
Webcams produced by Hercules generally have unexceptional ratings.
Does Not Have a Motion Detector
Most comparable spec webcams that were released more than two years ago do not have a motion detector. The Hercules Link is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.
Not USB Powered
Most webcams of a comparable age and type to the Link are not USB powered. The Hercules Link is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.
If you want a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to consider the Media-Tech MT4040.
Does Not Feature Face Tracking
Like most of the other webcams that were released around the same time as the Link, the Hercules Link does not feature face tracking.
+7 More reasons against
Not Mac Compatible
The Hercules Link is not Mac compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams that were launched more than two years ago are also not Mac compatible.
Does Not Have a Snapshot Button
The Hercules Link does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the Link also do not have a snapshot button.
We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the Approx APPWC02 is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Night Mode
Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the Link do not have a night mode. The Hercules Link is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.
Does Not Have a Zoom Capability
The Hercules Link does not have a zoom capability, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a comparable spec and age to the Link also do not have a zoom capability.
Not Full HD
The Hercules Link is not Full HD. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the Link are also not Full HD.
Very Big Minimum Hard Disk Space
When compared to other similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as the Link that we have assessed, the minimum hard disk space of the Hercules Link of 300 megabytes is one of the biggest. Medium megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the Link have minimum hard disk space of between 130MB and 300MB, and the average minimum hard disk space is 200MB.
