Cons: Got this device to record off from my set top box and console. Everytime i get an error macrovision found and it does not record at all. Pass through works fine but does not record - Waste of money. Contacted avermedia and even got a replacement and same issue with the new device. Now they say it...
Summary: UPDATE: APRIL 4TH 2014 IT'S BROKEN! IT DOESN'T TURN ON AT ALL. THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED. AND ZERO CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!! DO NOT BUY WOW AND I THOUGHT CHINA MADE HORRIBLE PRODUCTS IT TURNS OUT TO BE TAIWAN! before I get to the good part of this box. here are the bad. 1.
Summary: I usually don't review products since I tend to be a satisfied customer when purchasing Amazon products, and usually there are enough reviews to cover things just fine. I felt compelled to write one for this product though, because I think it's important that people know what they're getting.
Summary: Stopped working in 3 mos. Under warranty but can't get help from Aver Medai at all. No live chat available (even though the website shows "live chat". Spoke to a tech, then was told to call another phone #.
Summary: I've checked every cable, but what little signal I'm able to coerce out of the device is dark and garbled at best -mostly, it's just not there. Put simply, it doesn't work. Until their customer support contacts me regarding the trouble ticket I submitted, I have a $140 paperweight.
Pros: Touted highly by other reviews as a go-to game capture solution, bought on said recommendations
Summary: I contact AVerMedia about .avi issue, to which they replied that it was a hardware issue and cannot be changed. Hence, the need to use their mp4 converter. To AVerMedia's credit, the converter is easy to use & free. I am glad they have it available.
Pros: It's a neat device (when it worked properly). Setup was simple. All the required cables came with the device. Installing & setting up the internal hard drive was easy. Compared to another popular recording device, this is not as expensive.
Cons: I bought this 2 months ago. The 1st month, I used an external USB hard drive. The only problem with that was having to set up the USB drive every time it was plugged. So I bought a bare laptop drive later on. 1st real problem I had was that Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 11 does NOT recognize the .av...
Pros: Concept of recording without a PC is great; and when it works well, it's very convenient as mentioned below.
Cons: Recording is very unreliable, it will turn off without warning even with the new 1.6 firmware. I am extremely disappointed with how unreliable this product is and the lack of updates from Avermedia about this issue. Image quality is significantly degraded when compared to directly connecting the ...
Summary: hätte es brauchbar sein können. Ausgepackt, angeschlossen, eingeschaltet - kein Signal. Ausschalten ließ es sich nicht mehr, also habe ich es vom Strom getrennt. Neuerliches Einschalten ging in Folge auch nicht mehr -> zurückgeschickt.
Summary: Ich habe mir die Avermedia Game Captuere HD gekauft um von der Konsole her aufzunehmen. Von der Qualität her ist es in Ornung (nicht besondern überragend), aber die Game Capture will ab und zu meine Videos nicht speichern.
