Excerpt: The Lite is fantastic for recording videos. I also have the Live Gamer Portable and it works just as well. Having the extra input for recording PS3/retro consoles would have been nice, but I'm still able to record modern consoles with it.
Excerpt: This product is not bad for someone just starting up it has good quality and everything built into it to get you streaming. The down side to this device is it is proprietary and will not work with other streaming software so you can not make your stream pop.
Summary: It's a great card and I would recommend it any day to anyone that is interested in starting Youtube or anything else to do with video recording for whatever they use it for.
Pros: Portable Easy to setup High Quality Recording (via PC and SD card) Very customizable and flexible to user's desire Has option for Live Commentary and separate audio files 2 different formats for the raw recording (TS and MP4) Ability to Live Stream straight from Rec Central (AverMedia's free prog...
Cons: Bottom rubber feet are magnets to dust (not a big con, just note that) Only comes with 1 HDMI cord and it is VERY short (6inches I think)
Very useful for streaming PS3 or older generation games

Summary: Very useful for streaming PS3 or older generation games. Recommend a AV to HDMI converter for some of the really old generations. You do have to be a bit careful. The software used with Windows 8.1 can cause your PC to freeze. Please keep that in mind when deciding.
Won't rec/stream copyrighted games, and ALL games are Copyrighted. NOT EASY TO USE!!!

Summary: Don't get this unless you enjoy tinkering to make things work reliably. If you would enjoy fixing up the Millenium Falcon then you might enjoy using this, but if you have that level of tinkering skill, then you could/should use a different product designed for advanced users.
Pros: Sets up quickly, has easy to follow instructions and for the first month worked as advertised. However, lately, anything i try to record or stream is blocked as copyrighted.
Cons: No longer records or streams ANYTHING without a need to figure out complex creative workarounds that sacrifice resolution quality to pull off.
Summary: If you want a capture device I would stick with desktop versions. HD-PVR 2 or Elgato HD60. Both do a great job.
Pros: - Good Quality - Easy to get started. Was up in running in no time. - Easy to record in PC-Free mode.
Cons: - Skips frames ever 15 minutes during PC-Free mode - Software is buggy, can crash from time to time. - Requires SD card, instead of Flashdrive. - Only accepts Fat32 SD cards, which splits the files in segments. Which causes the missing frames. Should went with different file format.
Excerpt: I've got only a little to complain about with this device. It works well as a standalone or combo streaming/recording device connected to my computers. But, there are a few annoying factors that keep me from giving five stars.
