Excerpt: I use this device to live stream events for a client of mine from my Canon XF100 camera. It works well once you figure out how to get it set up correctly, but getting there is a little tricky.
Summary: To anyone purchasing this (today is 3/4/2015), a bit of advice: USE THE DRIVERS FROM THE INSTALL DISC that came with the hardware. I had downloaded the newest version of "Hauppauge Capture", with updated drivers, and had problem after problem.
Summary: As I said with the Avermedia Game Capture device, this is pretty much the same deal, it allows you to capture without a computer/laptop (though the option is there), but unlike the other device this one uses a USB Memory Stick which is alot cheaper but not as much room as a Flash Drive.
Easy and convinient capture card without the need of a PC.

Summary: This little capture card is pretty good, goes right along with an El Gato HD and AverMedia Portable Gaming. I like the fact that it can record straight into the USB drive and I dont need a computer.
Summary: The Hauppauge HD PVR 2, exceeded my expectations on performance and compatibility. The installation was quick and easy, the program had a simple layout too. I had originally purchased this just for recording my PS4 and Wii U consoles, but has proved to work with most of my older consoles.
After initial pain, getting the advertised benefits.

Summary: I give the technology development the 4 stars. Once you can get it working, you get what you paid for and maybe a little more. But it was quite an adventure for me to get it all working. So I give the initial user experience 1-2 stars (installation, ease of use).
Summary: All I can say about the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Recorder is: "WOW! This unit meets more than my own expectations, and I researched it well into a week. Bravo, Hauppauge and Walmart! - Jarhead3270 -
A great affordable solution to go tapless on an older camera

Summary: My use for this product is quite unique compared to the rest of the reviews here, but this may help someone who may be looking for a similar solution that I did. Cutting straight to the chase, I absolutely love this thing.
