Simply amazing When it comes to capturing gameplay from your consoles, you want as good quality as you can get so you can show your friends or the world those amazing moments in detail.The problem is there are so many different game captures to choose from these days such as Roxio, AverMedia, Hauppauge +more, that it can be a daunting task to choose the right one.Whilst I can’t comment on the others being bad or good due to the fact I haven’t personally tried them myself, I can safely say that ‘Elgato Game Capture HD’ offers simple connectivity, ease of use and very high quality.So what’s in the box?:Game Capture Device | AV Cable(PS3) | Unencrypted HDMI Cable(Xbox or use as pass-through) | Component Cable | Mini USB – USB cable.Minimum system requirements:* Mac: Mac OS X 10.7, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.* PC: Windows 7, 2.0 GHz dual core CPU.* Sound card | 4 GB RAM | Built-in USB 2.0 port | You will…

Elgato almost gets it perfect! If you want to record gameplay get this… Hello gamers if you’re reading this review you most likely want to capture game content and upload your footage to YouTube well I hope you find this review useful. I’m going to be comparing the Elgato Game Capture HD to the Hauppauge HD PVR and the Elgato Eye TV. And my goal is to give you direction as to which one you should buy based on my experience as a regular uploader of gaming footage to YouTube.The straight dope: IF YOU JUST WANT TO RECORD GAMEPLAY BUY THIS OVER A PVR IT IS THE PERFECT DEVICE.To watch Drift0r do a video review search this code on YouTube: 1RXqiyQetiAHere is Drift0rs how to live stream video on YouTube: dTsBQeoy-nAThis short and sweet review of this device is: Buy this over the Happauge HD-PVR or Eye TV I feel it’s just a superior unit for capturing gameplay no extra pieces of equipment are required like with the other products that I mentioned. It’s compact and just simply passes your signal directly to your TV and…

Opposite of HD-PVR 2 New Edit: Elgato is continually updating their software, so I’ve updated my review below with important points (and noted where things no longer apply, marked with three asterisks ***).As the title says, ***this appears to be the opposite of the HD-PVR 2 in almost every regard***. -Since Hauppauge has now released their own capture software for their HD-PVR devices, and I have not used said software, I can’t really compare the software.- Physical ease of use – the pass-through just plain works. The HD-PVR 2 required the PC to be powered on and the software opened before anything was passed through. The Elgato, I didn’t even have the drivers installed yet and the pass-through worked. Definitely a plus.- Video quality – the 1080p bitrate on the Elgato is over twice the HD-PVR 2 (30 Mbps vs 14 Mbps). It’s not a big deal for just uploading clips to YouTube (since they compress 1080p to the 2-6 Mbps range anyway) but for a filmmaker like me, quality is…
