Summary: I built a PC and now use video capture software. Very customizable and it won't degrade your graphics (viewing) quality.
Pros: Worked great for a month
Cons: After a month I started getting a lot of pixelation and other video corruption issues. For the price it has a really short warranty and does not come with HDMI cables. Passthrough cuts your viewing quality dramatically I've had for more than a year and have been trying to research fixed and still can't get it to work.
Summary: After burning out my old and outdated ADVC-100 I tried BM Intensity Pro Card and my system and capture software saw the card but it didn't work, at all so I RMA'd it back to NYC. for a refund, I was thinking about getting there USB 3 version and saw this on sale here at Newegg. So I took a gamble and it paid off. I now can ingest HD content to my system without any problems.
Pros: When you find a product that works just the way you want it to, that my friends is a pro. Also see other thoughts.
Cons: Short USB cable. Installation disc didn't have any Disc creation software.
Cons: False advertising. I read on roxio forums that the hd capture card has a 2 second delay due to how the drivers work... It's not real time capture. Will be making a return shortly. Also does not cone with component av or hdmi cables
Summary: Just garbage, can't return it so it or even RMA it with the manufacturer so it looks like I get to put it on that "auction site". Basically even within 30days if you have an issue with the hardware not working properly, you might as well just throw it away since no one will take it back or allow you to RMA it. I won't be buying anything Roxio again.
Pros: -Should record your console?
Cons: -All I get are blue screens with most full screen games, and the program minimizes my games when I go full screen windowed.
Summary: I don't know what changes when you run full screen but this definitely needs to be fixed, this is a terrible issue. I bumped it to 3 stars since it does work for the most part on pc and seems like it should work very well on consoles. I bought it for pc though so I will probably get the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD so i can run both of my graphics cards.
Pros: Update: -Will record pc gameplay if you run windowed fullscreen -Makes beautiful videos at 15000kbps bitrate, I didn't try lower but I did notice 1500kbps was terrible.
Cons: -Everyone that owns two radeon cards and runs crossfire know that if you run windowed it will disable one gpu, so running one card to record sucks.
Summary: I still give it a 1 egg because it still uses HDD space. If you purchase this and don't notice it than that's basically no one's fault but your own. If you want a Cap Card for PS3 or anything else I say get something else other than this. Roxio's support doesn't help with any issues on here. I won't bother stating anything on it, but If you purchase this card than I say good luck to you. I got it because it was on sale and it was a bad mistake.
Pros: Card still works, still has good video quality, and now I have good audio. I recently figured out that is was my Television making the awful. So after messing with it a bit I got it to where the screeching sounds doesn't appear anymore.
Cons: Cons are that the programs both the capture and editing take quite a while to respond and open up. The only reason I got this was for livestreaming, but now I only make Youtube Videos. other cons are that the Cap Card doesn't work with older systems like the PS2 and Gamecube. Or older systems like I wish they would.
Summary: Can't complain about the picture quality of this. I should have realized that for $130 this wasn't going to be as good as an ElGato or something. The software it comes with freezes and crashes very regularly in spite of being on a relatively powerful computer. I would recommend you save up a bit extra and get an ElGato, Black Magic, or AverMedia depending on your setup and steer clear of the Roxio Gamecap HD Pro.
Pros: - The captured video is good quality - The interface of the software is quite good - The price
Cons: - Both the capture and editing software this comes with freezes extremely frequently and pressing End Task in task manager won't even quit it sometimes - Pass-through image has just a little bit of fuzziness around very bright colours - Requires a fair bit of adjusting the Brightness & Contrast settings on both your monitor and in the capture software (since the settings there affect the pass-through image) to get a good balance of good picture in the recording and fo...
