Kilding said on Amazon “Easy to set up and use” in their review of the Hercules HD Twist and scored it very highly. One Hercules HD Twist owner considered that the Hercules HD Twist was easy to use.

Features Face Tracking

The Hercules HD Twist features face tracking, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the HD Twist do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of other webcams which feature face tracking currently available which you might want to look at including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Hercules HD Twist has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the HD Twist.

Chart Edit

Hercules Has Good Reviews for Its Webcams

Average ratings across all Hercules webcams are good, however average ratings across just Hercules's medium megapixel webcams are unexceptional.

Chart

The HD Twist is full HD. Most of the other medium megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the HD Twist are not full HD.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Cable Length

The cable lengths of webcams of this spec and age range from 1m to 1.9m, and the average cable length is 1.6m. With a cable length of 1.8 meters, the HD Twist has one of the longer cable lengths amongst similar spec webcams of this age.

8 Reasons Against

Average User Reviews

Based on 17 user reviews the average user rating of this Hercules webcam is 69 out of 100.

Poor Support

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The HD Twist does not have a motion detector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the HD Twist also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatibility

The HD Twist is not mac compatibility, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the HD Twist are also not mac compatibility.

If you are looking for a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to consider the Genius FaceCam 321.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most webcams of this spec and age do not have a zoom capability. The HD Twist is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability including the L-Link LL-4186, or the Genius FaceCam 321 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The HD Twist does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other similar spec webcams that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a snapshot button.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the HD Twist, the HD Twist does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also have a night mode including the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack which is also higher rated.
