Elgato Game Capture HD
Best Capture Card
Its the best capture card ever i got it a week ago and works really well and it doesn't need a power cord which is great and it is a lot more better then the HD PVR 2 a lot less wires with the Elgato and easier to work with. I also did a unboxing video so you guys should go check it out.
I bought this capture card to replace my roxio hd pro (which i did not like at all) and so far im in love with the ease of use on the elgato. The program itself is very simple and well laid out with a lot of features like the ability to change the brightness, contrast, saturation etc. right in the program itself. I love the flashback feature so if im not capturing gameplay at the time i can rewind back to that point and start recording, that alone is a selling point by its self. The streaming on the Elgato is very impressive at first glance. The settings to setup the streaming are very important if you want the quality, no lag etc. You can even set the bitrate to your internet speed to get the perfect quality for streaming. You can also do live commentary while you are recording which is another plus. It is very easy to use but it does not lack any of the important ingredients to capture or stream. The device its self is hardly any bigger than a credit card or smartphone. Overall if your a youtube video creator or just an average gamer looking to record those special moments THIS is the capture card to have!!
A must Have
This device is a must have! Its so easy and quick to set it up and install. The software takes seconds to install on your PC or Mac. It is compatible with all gaming consoles that have a HDMI Out. So It works with xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One. The design isn't perfect but its not bad at all. The size is a perfect size. But the HDMI in and out are located on opposite sides of each other. so its a little harder to hide the cords. But I have mine setup in a great spot to hide them good enough. its great that it includes all the cords especially a HDMI cord. The only cord that it doesn't come with is a power cord.....Thats because it DOES NOT need a power cord to plug into a wall outlet. It gets power through the USB cable that is plugged into the legato to your computer or other devices. The 179 dollar price tag is a little more expensive than other stores and websites. You also have to pay shipping since gamestop doesn't carry this device in store. Best buy has them in stock for 25 dollars cheaper and don't have to worry about shipping. Their website has free shipping after 35 dollars as well if its not in stock in the store. Absolutley a must by if you want your youtube channel to elevate its status. Become a huge channel with the legato. Follow me on youtube johnnywalnuts87!!!!!!Keep gaming! Oh yeah and keep recording! lol

Slow, and only shows the picture on my computer.
It is VERY SLOW. I had to go through 3 computers and still when its hooked up, I get no picture on my TV, it all on my computer and 11 seconds late. I don't know if its my computer but I am not impressed in the slightest.
Good, portable, easy to capture and effective.
The video game capture is very small, I mean, is so portable and light that you can carry it as if it was an iPhone. Is so simple to setup, and to record in an excellent quality format. I`m sure you will like it, specially if you prefer to use mac.
Its good but ned to make this for iphones ipads and ipods And this is what they need to add please spread this
