Customer ratings and reviews for HP HD-5210 Webcam

Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality, easy setup This camera delivers fantastic image and audio quality. I plugged it into a Windows 8 machine and it worked right away for Skype. I'm impressed so far. The only thing I don't like is the software package that HP wants you to install. Some of the camera software is useful (or fun), but it can cause conflicts with your other programs that use the camera. It reminds me of the load of nonsense that comes pre-installed when you buy a PC. I recommend just plugging in the cam and using it instead of installing any additional programs. Try to find the driver online separately if needed. March 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice web cam, BUT.... Very nice looking webcam which was easy to install and start using. The picture is super sharp and I was very happy! Happy until i started to use it. The web cam only freezes when using it on Skype. I don't even have the settings set to HD resolution and it just keeps freezing. So -a nice cam with an ice image-unfortunately, can't use it to skype which is the reason I purchased the web cam. January 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worse webcam ever. I love HP laptop and computer but HP makes the worse webcam. they should literally stop making webcams. This webcam worked properly for two months then it died out. when i use skype the webcam works for 5-6 minutes then the video will freeze. at first i thought it was my $1800 desktop which was purchased from HP but when i tried to use other webcam, the skype was working fine. I have tried to update the software but it did not work. i have contacted Bestbuy (where i have purchased the cam), and they said since the webcam was purchased over 14 days ago best buy can't help. Best buy asked me to call HP directly. when i called HP, the tech support had no idea how to fix the freezing issue. His best technical professional advice was to buy another webcam. i siimply did not want to waste anymore time with this technician after hearing his professional advice, so i thanked him for his time and he hung up the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Everr It install itself and I have had fun ever since. Can't believe the quality of picture and sound! If you are looking for a webcam - look no further! This is the best! June 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 Its a nice little webcam I used to have a HP notebook webcam and got inspired to buy this. Its pretty good for the value. It covers a wide area with good detail and 720P on Skype is nice. I had some difficulty with it, without its firmware update, it just kept crashing skype and the video froze from time to time. I had to unplug it and replug to get it working.. Their magic arc software doesnt really work. Its just a software, Hoping it would be fixed in the next update. The only complaint I have is, during a video chat, I get a green tint on the overall image for a second or two and it goes away. Never had that issue on my dell . June 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This cam is not stable The cam keeps dropping the connection. Had to unplug and plug it in the USB port in order to restore the connection. The software kicks in when Skype is launched, but the phase-in and -out is not smooth. Logitech cams are better and more stable. May 30, 2013
