4 out of 5 eggsWorks well enough!

Pros: Easy setup, software is fairly easy to figure out. Able to work with all types of a/v signals smoothly.

Cons: If you're planning to watch live TV from a cable box, use the A/V and not the HDMI. Using HDMI the software will cry about copyright issues and stop playing. I suspect it would do the same from a DVD or Blu-Ray player, though I haven't tried it yet.

1 out of 5 eggsDRMLICENSE

Pros: None

Cons: I followed the instructions to install it on my Windows 7 computer. It installed without any problems but when I attempted to use the program I received a Drmlicense issue. I followed the instructions and contacted Microsoft for the upgrade and it failed. The program shows my HD device for a few seconds then gives me the same drmlicense issue. I attempted to contact AverMedia but their support asked questions I don't have the answer to so I couldn't get thru.

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers are beyond abhorrent.

Pros: If you can get it to run, when you get it to run, it's nice. When you get it to run. If you can. You won't, at least not for long, especially when they put out updates. But hey, if you can, it's great.

Cons: These drivers were programmed by people that Downs Syndrome patients would call slow. Even vegetables have more brain function, these people are practically on par with corpses.

So, get custom drivers, right? Because I mean, the people that made this are complete failures in every viable way when it comes to programming, even though they got the hardware right, so--

Nope! Proprietary. You have to deal with these horrendous, nonfunctional, incessantly crashing drivers for the ENTIRE DURATION of your ownership. These horrendous drivers clash with everything imaginable, and there's literally nothing you can do about it. Have fun.

Other Thoughts: Can you mistakes just release a version of this that allows for custom drivers? Seriously, if you can't do it right, let someone who doesn't suck do it.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job

Pros: - Nice adapter for YUV / Component signal.
- Works very well without problem
- Take gorgeous video in 1080 HD
- No lag event if I play game on the PC while recording on the same pc
- The only thing I needed to buy is a dual HDMI splitter to do the job I needed.
- Great price for the card
- Works well almost straight of the box

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I will update my review later on if something happen.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quick and simple hardware and software install. Works great. Beautiful video and stills. Simple to use but...

Cons: The layout of the software is really poor in regards to menus, buttons and navigation. Some things are hard to find. The menu across the top is annoying because it scrolls, and the most annoying thing is that the menu for record/stop/photo/etc disappears after you take your pointer off it. The record button should always be visible so you can click it instantly.

Other Thoughts: The most important thing was that the board worked well and the video and audio were good. I have to ding it one star for the poor layout of the menus and buttons in the software.

1 out of 5 eggsridiculous

Pros: n/a
Not going to be buying it.

Cons: I cant believe what I just read in the reviews..
Some guy got a defective cable in his box and they refused to fix the issue.. even replied this to him:

"Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Since the AV input dongle cable you have is defective you can purchased a new cable from our online e-store"

If you are going to sell stuff, don't steal from people.
This guy paid good money for a working product
This comment just guaranteed that I'm not going to be buying anything from this company..
Their official policy is "We sold you useless junk, maybe you buying more junk from us will fix your issue"..

4 out of 5 eggsA-OK

Pros: No lag from my PS3/PS4 to my computer, so I can play full 1080p live-time.
1080p Recording on my PS4 (YOU NEED TO DISABLE HDCP ON THE PS4 VIA SETTINGS).

Cons: The only thing that REALLY REALLY BUGS THE HELL OUT OF ME is that the software included does not support external microphone or webcam recording support while you record the video input's audio.
Also, you need the software edition that comes with the box. A newer edition downloaded off their website seems to not work with the playstations.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Capture Card

Pros: Works really well with Windows 7. Captured movies are really crisp depending on the source.

Cons: Capture application could have been better. Needs some getting used to.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great but need correct Drivers !!

Pros: With the older/oldest drivers it can record HDCP content - driver ignores the copy protect signal. See internet for those Driver versions.
Also, you might want to put the 'priority' of the process to 'real time' this might prevent or lessen any stuttering &/or 'affinity' and make sure it is using all your cores !!
Also, capture using Mpeg2 (H.262), uses less CPU and less stuttering than mpeg4 (H.264) !!

Cons: Needs a strong CPU PC, and stop running any other process/app that uses any CPU !!
Card uses an PCI-express slot, so make sure you have a spare !

Other Thoughts: Video Capture is a 'real time' occurrence, so why do you wonder if some stuttering occurs, Winblows, Linus or Mach OS are NOT real-time OS, so you must make sure you prioritize the capture process (not so subtle hint to the OS) or have a huge excess of cpu and fast HDD - its called PC 101 guys !!
