There are a number of alternative webcams with a zoom capability currently available which you might want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which has better reviews.

7 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One HP KQ245AA owner wrote that it was not good quality. Toptenreviews.com said “The video quality is relatively poor compared to other webcams” however despite that they still gave the product a score of 63 out of 100.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams of a comparable spec and age to the KQ245AA do not have a motion detector. The KQ245AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years, the KQ245AA does not feature face tracking.

It is worth considering other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The web cam works as intended, but there are definitely better choices available...

This HP web cam captures images with 12 megapixels of resolution, the highest resolution we saw in our comparison
The video quality is relatively poor compared to other webcams
