Summary: This capture card is exactly what I wanted. It's a system to record your entire screen without noticeable impact on your computer's performance. The button it comes with is useful to see when you're recording and if positioned properly can be easier to access than hotkeys. The only downside is that this can only record up to 1080 p footage so if you have a higher resolution monitor it will scale down.
Summary: This is by far my favorite device for capturing PC gameplay footage. It's a PCI-E card that functions as a pass-through recording device. You plug it in, then you plug in the cable from your graphics card into this card, and then from this card into your monitor. Same kind of situation with your audio cable, if you use one separate from your HDMI cable. I have a dual-monitor setup, and it works great for recording the first monitor while not disturbing the second.
Summary: So, I purchased this so I could capture some PC Gaming with hardware H.264 encoding. This thing performs like a beast. It captures, up to 1080p at 30FPS, flawlessly with no hit to FPS at all. However, the way you hook it up to get your computer that the card installed to is a little tricky. You need 2 HDMI cables (provided), and a monitor or display device (Television) capable of 1080p or the resolution you want to record in.
Summary: Initial review: Worked fine for a few days, then stopped; I downloaded the new version and drivers, uninstalled the original(or so I thought), then installed the newer version. Got error message about unable to successfully install drivers. Tried program, wouldn't work. Looked around, and found all the old files and registry entries still there. So don't rely on avermedia's uninstall utility. I had to remove everything myself manually. THEN..
Summary: Video Review Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yoeUabmv1U Looking to record video games or anything else on your computer or with a hdmi? This is what you need. It takes 100% of the load off the computer. I used fraps for a long time and its a great program for what it is but this is so much better. Not only does it make your computer run faster and stream perfectly it records xbox, ps3, pc, blueray, anything on your desktop etc...
Summary: works great with twitch tv and Open Broadcaster Software. i stream xbox 360 with nothing else needed. for ps3 u need to buy a Monoprice DVI & S/PDIF Digital Coax/Optical Toslink Audio to HDMI Converter because ps3 is HDCP. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0038XNTWW/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?
Summary: This item is exactly what I needed for recording my PC gameplay as a youtube partner. I would highly recommend getting a HDMI splitter instead of using the crappy pass through built into this thing. The hot button is excellent and lets me easily know if i am recording or not. I used to use fraps and this is much better because of the video encoding allows for smaller files sizes and it reduces the strain on your CPU and GFX card.
Summary: this is a great capture card to capture video games from your ps3 xbox 360 and even pc. this is great alternative to other cards since is alot cheaper compared to other cards or external boxes. this card might be cheap but the performance is great just like a black magic or other cards would perform.
Summary: I just what I was looking for to capture my game play and do commentary on my youtube channel. If you looking so a way to capture onto your PC I recommend you use this one. http://www.youtube.com/user/ebenjamin24?
