Summary: Story Time! I bought this item in July 2012. They shipped it quick, no packaging problems, etc., but there was one thing wrong... It would not work with any of my flash drives, External HDDs or 3.5" SATA HDDs.
Pros: -Many Features -Not very big -comes with remote (w/ batteries) -comes with 2 component cables -does not need computer!
Cons: -can only record to certain drives -only records in 1080i intead of 1080p -looks kind of ugly :P -Very laggy, takes about 4 seconds after you hit record to start recording and pop up the recording screen
Summary: So overall (the con's have more than Pro's) I think this device is great! If your looking for something like this then you should buy it! What all this really means is since this is just $139.99 means you should earn more money because you need to buy more than what this gives you.
Pros: I think that this device is actually VERY useful! I tryed to record with my old easycap which went well until I found out my memory is out of memory! SO I found this! AVermedia game capture hd! The fact that it records without a pc is awesome! They even offer you some batteries a remote control, ...
Cons: Now for the bad news! The universal componet cables that DO come with it makes the screen black and white! But all I did was: go to gamestop, and bought some new (none universal) component cables and that fixed the problem! Now another thing is you think you can easily just stick the usb stick in...
Summary: I keep receiving a write error after about 8 minutes of recording. I am using a usb stick, one SPECIFICALLY stated on their site to work, but I still get the error, ruining the whole recording. I am using the latest firmware (1.72) and I am seriously regretting my purchase.
Summary: It's a very great device for recording Call of Duty gameplay (don't recommend Battlefield since they are longer) but if your trying to record Game plays of walkthroughs or lp's then I highly recommend you look elsewhere for a new device.
Pros: Quality is actually quite decent. Very simple to use and hook up.
Cons: The sound on mine will begin to de-sync (go faster) than the video after about the 20 minute mark in a recording which is quite a hassle when recording a let's play for my YouTube channel. Also, at the very start up of the device the very first recording you do when you start it up will take a fe...
Summary: I took the gamble this would be good for recording Ps3 games (quality is excellent), I reached out of my price range for something I hoped would be well worth the money. It does everything advertised - some things really well, some things not so well. It is a slow starter - 20-30 seconds to boot.
Pros: Good quality recordings, external or internal storage. Connecting wires make it a breeze to hook up.
Cons: Price - $140? Too much - plain and simple. Slow to start up, slow to begin recording.
Summary: All in all a pretty good device. My main problem is the device not wanting to stop recording. I upgraded the firmware to the 1.6 as soon as I hooked it up. I contacted customer support and the response I got was the device may be defective and return it where I bought it, which was no customer...
Pros: No computer needed to capture Price Fairly simple to use Oh, did I mention price?
Cons: There is latency at times. At times on MW3, when you turn, there seems to be a millisecond delay in onscreen response. If I watch Netflix on my xbox 360, I have to have the device powered on or the audio does not sync. Poor customer service. If you ask a question, it is not addressed to you in an...
Summary: If it was more reliable, I would have given it 5 stars. Hell, if it atleast failed reliably, that would be something I could work around. But you don't know if it will fail after 10 minutes or 20 minutes.
Pros: *Does as advertised. *Extremely easy to setup *Very conveniently sized. *Comes with all the cables you need. *Image quality is excellent
Cons: *Firmware lag is UNBEARABLE if you are playing competitive multiplayer games. You are forced to turn on the "OSD off" mode, which leaves you blind to recording time and guessing what the color of the LEDs in the front mean * Depending on the day and time, it will sometimes decide to just stop/cra...
Summary: Solange das Gerät funktionierte (2 Monate), machte es klasse MP4-Aufnahmen; aber dann lief es nicht mehr hoch beim Einschalten (ist wie ein kleiner PC) und machte gar nicht mehr. Zu teuer für die kurze Haltbarkeit. Nicht wieder.
