Rated 9 out of 10 by Blair42 The Best Option Out There
At $199.99 it's worth every penny. I paid more but have been using this brand for years. I would advise anyone wanting to buy one to go on You Tube and watch the tutorials there are a ton of them but will save you a lot of headaches. I am hoping the next model is HDMI the composit cables work well. However if you want to record your voice say on XBL or on PSN splitting the audio source is a pain and sounds poor. Fairly easy to set-up depending on the model you get some require a driver update and the updated ones are not on the disc. If you set it to 720 it's going to save HD space also Pinnicle works great as well as Sony's Studio. The software included is okay but lacks things you'll need later. Quality piece of hardware never had any issues. The TV Blaster I never touched and chances are you won't either. Bottom line there is nothing else out there right now that works as well as the Hauppage. Unless you want to spend a few thousand dollars. Perfect for You Tube, Websites and backing up personal media weddings, graduations etc. The only other thing you'll want to buy is a longer USB with Femal FireWire 25 ft is what I have. They include 1 in the box but it's short. The only reason for not giving it all 10's is the lack of HDMI.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GatesVideoGames NICE
Months ago, I decided to start a YouTube channel full of montages, gameplays, live commentaries and more. So I chose this capture card to record my gameplay. Everything was just how I expected, recorded great, uploaded great. The only flaw is that my PC, PS3, and HD-PVR all has to be connected together. So, I found another product that is as good as the HD-PVR. You don't need a PC to record and its only 150 dollars. So I gave my HD-PVR to my brother and I got a different one. But I totally recommend this one. Add me on PSN, its GatesVideoGames.
Rated 10 out of 10 by N3w8Tewber Sick video and recording!
I bought this for commentating on youtube and I got better than what I expected! It can also record television which I love. I already made a couple of videos also.... But I suggest finding a different recording software for it, it is really complicated to use. I also have it on all the time and I never unhook it (Because it is a pain in the butt to hook up). It dosen't lag like the Roxio Game Capture. I would save the extra 100 dollars to get this compared to the dazzle and the Roxio... It is sooo worth it for getting it!

It is okay but the problem is the only software that I have found that works is sony Vegas and for the mac users that's what you get when you buy a mac that isn't good for anything but editing and then you complain.
if you are using a ps3 you need to buy an additional wire which will allow you to use it and it will cost you 30 bucks. If your an Xbox user just use red white and then red blue and green wires and your all set in the back of the system so its an OK device but for 200 isn't worth it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by xiikalanz3 Best for PS3 and PC Users...
Super awesome High Definition,on both PC and PS3 but,is also good for Mac Users,not many people know how to use it on Mac but if you look it up you will fine a program im sure.
Highly recommended if you're thinking of starting a Youtube Channel commentating and montages.
For all Intermediate and Advance commentators or recorders once you have yourself a good.Start off on Youtube!

I have Final Cut Pro.
This is not helping me.
Why don't people make stuff for the Mac using Editors out there.
All this is going to do is fuel the over saturated market of noobs who use windows movie maker.

Rated 10 out of 10 by Nate1231234 Awesome for recording xbox 360/ps3!!!
If you are looking to post gameplay to youtube, then the HDPVR is your best bet, it had the best quality and has not failed on me yet. Check out my video and you can see the quality for yourself.
