Summary: This card is perfect for streaming! I have had zero issues getting this to capture anything I have thrown at it, from my own desktop PC to the Xbox360 this has worked great to record. I use this for streaming my video games to twitch.tv, and the quality it puts out is amazing. I normally record at 720p with 60fps, I have also used 720p 30fps and 1080p 30fps. They all work great.
Summary: I'm a broadcaster on Twitch and I've been wanting an HD capture card for years. I finally caved in and got one of these as it seemed like the best capture card available, and BOY was I right. The quality is amazing and the pass-through is perfect. I couldn't believe how good this card is. One thing I could never find online before I got this was the lag between the game and whatever program you were using the card with.
Summary: The title says it all the when I first got it worked then I updated it with new firmware from their website and it bricked my card. Avermedia has hardly any support for the product their support lines and numbers don't respond and the firmware is still V22 which when I installed said Install successful then when I went to use it nothing done everything to get it to work and nothing.
Summary: Came as advertised. For those looking for an installation CD, there is none, but they give you the site from which to download the drivers and firmware and software needed to install and run the device. Even though in the packaging it says that a CD is included, don't tear up your life looking for it. Installation of the hardware and software is pretty easy and direct. Will add more as I work with it more.
Summary: Ive heard a lot of people say these are great cards but they need to put the dang firmware update in the box.
Pros: Nice Box, but aside from that I cant give any pro's because the stupid thing doesnt even work.
Cons: I have several problems with this, it didn't come with an actual cd that had the drivers on it, it had a small piece of paper telling me where to download the firmware update. So I go and download the firmware update and it keeps telling me that its unable to find a supported card. I re-seat it in all of my PCi-E slots, same thing. (My pcie slots work fine btw) So guess what? Its DEAD ON ARRIVAL. Avermedia customer support is some of the worst out there, I mean its pr...
Summary: Bought 2 of these and can you guess what happened? The firmware that AverMedia requires you to have just to have the latest software bricks these cards. Why even provide firmware that bricks the card? Does AverMedia not even test their firmware before pushing it out there for others to use? Would definitely not recommend, just go get the Elgato game capture HD and save some cash and headaches.
Summary: My first capture card was a Blackmagic Intensity Pro. I've used that for years and never had a problem with anything. With the PS4 coming out at the time of my purchase for the C985 I needed an upgrade. I thought all the capture cards were just like the Intensity Pro via input and output wise from the console and tv. I was very wrong.
