Summary: There's so much good with this that I'll start off with the few cons Con The "latest" drivers didn't work on my pc (win7) my pc wouldn't even recognize the device, I had to download the old drivers, which took about 2 hours to find on the website.
The AverMedia Live Gamer HD is fantastic...if you're willing to jump through some hoops and win the successful install lottery.

Summary: So I have been using this capture card since June of 2014 (eventually replacing it with an Elgato HD60 when 1080p 60FPS finally hit YouTube), and if you want a capture card that can stream/preview with no delay, record at a pretty great quality, and has a big red button..
Summary: Ended up bricking my own card due to failed firmware update. Installed the App & Driver combo listed specifically for this product on the website, then attempted to update the firmware to v22 as directed.
Summary: This is one of the best Game Capture cards out there. Let me list you the Pros & Cons. Pros: - Game sound & Mic syncs perfectly. No more worrying about that like I did with the Elgato. - About only ~1 second lag from when you are watching the preview on your computer.
Summary: My streaming workhorse for over a year now on a 2011 i7 2600 system. Excellent 720p/60 and 1080p/30 streaming, although does exhibit issues with reds (specifically red text especially when on a black background) when the input is coming from Nvidia GPU's 600 series+.
Summary: Alright, I have this and I have elgato. I love how this one can display a picture from an hdmi device with like 0 lag so you don't need a separate screen to play from / however the framerate is not perfect when doing it that way but, it's still very pretty. (I use it for streaming with obs).
Summary: I'm still reviewing this C985 live gamer, what can I say, excellent picture, just as other reviewers have mentioned. You can't go wrong with this capture card, as I find it very reliable, and sturdy. For what I'm capturing, this is 5 star great. Even works with 3rd party editors.
This is correct however let me solve this problem and explain to you in an easy manner how I fixed this

Summary: Okay...So first off let me clear the air a little about this product. I was really worried when I went to buy this product. I saw the reviews and knew that there would be possible issues going in. I do know a little about building computers and making stuff work.
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.
