If you have friends, family and loved ones spread across every corner of the world, then getting a decent webcam is pretty essential. While budget and built-in webcams do the trick, spending a little extra on a better webcam can make all the difference to those you're talking to.At around £90 in the UK or $99 in the US, the HP Webcam HD 5210 is not a minor purchase, sitting firmly at the higher price end of the webcam market. It's also a rather altruistic expenditure - after all, those who will benefit the most out of your investment in a decent webcam are other people. The HP Webcam HD 5210 is a very good webcam, although £90 is still a lot to ask for it.Image quality is alright, bur don't let the declarations of 'Full HD 1080p' make you think that you'll be getting Blu-ray-quality footage from this camera. Details are OK, but not great, and the image is a little blocky. Still, it's good for a webcam, and considering the strain that higher quality footage would put yours and your contact's broadband bandwidth under. The dual-noise cancelling microphones are much better at convincing us that the HP Webcam HD 5210 is worth the money with effective elimination of ambient noises - even in busy environments.
HP may be in the middle of some, shall we say, slight turmoil in upper management, but the company knows its PC hardware, including webcams. The HP Webcam HD 5210's ($99.99 direct) built-in H.264 video processor ensures smooth, clear, high definition video, both for chats and video recording (although there are a few particulars, which I'll get to below). Combine that with stereo mics and solid overall performance, and you get our new Editors' Choice for PC-based webcams. System Requirements, Design, and SetupTo get started with the HD 5210, you need any Windows 7, Vista, or XP SP2 machine, in either 32-bit or 64-bit varieties, with 230MB of free hard disk space, a CD-ROM drive, and a free USB 2.0 port. For 720p HD video calls, you'll need Skype 5.1 or greater, and at least a dual-core processor. HP recommends a Core i5 2.66 GHz processor or greater, plus 2GB RAM, for 1080p video recording. Attractively designed, the HD 5210 is constructed of a charcoal grey plastic, with a black front panel. Two small stereo mics bracket the auto-focus camera sensor.
