4 out of 5 eggsGood hardware, bad software maybe

Pros: Capture through HDMI or 15-pin VGA port. Works perfectly with OBS. Video lag is almost unnoticeable.

Cons: Software didn't work so well for me, even after the latest update a few days ago.

Other Thoughts: If you read my earlier review, I mentioned I am capturing video from the second display of a Mac computer into a PC to show keynotes/powerpoints, videos, etc as supporting material for a video stream through Open Broadcast Software. I can use OBS to capture specific windows/programs/capture devices/displays, and the problem was some lag artifact on the bottom of the video when capturing the avermedia recording software window, and it would show on OBS as well, although the problem is independant of OBS. I then decided to ditch that method and capture straight from the card without the recording software. That worked like a charm. I hope it wasn't a fluke and gets messed up later, but with the software it worked smoothly only under certain circumstances, but for the most part, it didn't work well.
Now I'm wondering how well multiple cards on the same PC would work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: It does exactly what it says it should.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this to grab an extended VGA display from a mac computer at a church so I could stream live video of the service while being able to show the live powerpoint presentations or videos or anything that the Mac is displaying to the local audience. I have yet to experiment with different resolutions, but I was using 1280x768 and of course, there would black bars at the top and bottom, but it's a good thing OBS can crop the image. Soon I will be trying to use full 1080p resolution and will see how that goes. On a slightly unrelated note, if you plan to do what I did by splitting one video source, and at least one of the displays is connected through a 100ft VGA cable, you might want an active splitter, I used a passive one, and the computer with the AVerMedia card was getting video, but the far-away projector did not get the signal anymore lol, now I'm waiting for a different splitter also from Newegg :)

3 out of 5 eggsGood but should be better

Pros: Can record 1080p video through HDMI. Also has VGA input. Comes with dongle cable.

Cons: Upon first installation, using the driver cd provided, I noticed a syncronization problem with the audio/video while using HDMI in 1080p. The audio lagged behind the video by around 3 seconds. Updating the drivers (ones on cd are outdated of course) did not fix the issue.
Also the video quality while using VGA is poor (lines and some flickering in the picture).
Can only capture 30hz in 1080p.

Other Thoughts: If you only need 720p, why buy this one when the C027 is cheaper.

4 out of 5 eggsCant handle H.264

Pros: Excellent performance when recording in MPEG-2.
Clear picture, no dropped frames, and sound syncs perfectly.

Cons: Cant handle H.264 encoding

Other Thoughts: MPEG-2 also yields very small file sizes. On average, a 10min Black Ops 2 game is only 500mb.

5 out of 5 eggs@kyle

Pros: when streaming there will ALWAYS be lag between what you do and what the viewers are seeing. this lag is caused by bandwidth, your ISP, the encoders, and hardware on your computer. to me it sounds like you need to talk to your ISP, but remember THERE WILL ALWAYS BE LAG!!!!

Cons: none

3 out of 5 eggsDecent, somewhat disappointing

Pros: A very affordable way to live stream and record game play from any modern console. I have so far managed to get an Xbox 360 to work with HDMI, a PS3 to work with HDMI, a PS2 to work with component and a Game Cube to work with component as well. It has served its purpose so far in the testing phase of the device. It wasn't advertised to work with PS2 or Game Cube so I was quite happy to see that it did (though in theory it should anyway since it accepts component input).

Cons: At least for me, I have to restart my computer often in order to get it to display anything in HDMI or component converted to VGA mode. Out of the box it worked just fine but shortly after running other apps like Steam, browsers, instant messaging, etc, it stopped displaying anything. A restart fixed the problem but once again, any other app running eventually leads to a blank black screen which requires a restart to fix.

I also noticed that despite my computer's specs meeting and exceeding the requirements for streaming live HD, even without streaming as HD there is a massive delay between what is being recorded and what is displaying on the screen for those watching the stream. I can confirm this because I was in communication with the individuals watching the stream the whole time I was streaming. I did find this to be disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a decent device for the money, but I am left wishing I sprung more for an independent, external box rather than an internal card. At least I am able to use it for the main thing I wanted to use it for, so I am happy enough about that. Still, spending even this kind of money on something, I would like it to do everything that it is advertised to do (and correctly, without the need to hold its hand most of the time). Even the ability to record consoles not advertised to work with it isn't enough to save it from this disappointing issue for me.

2 out of 5 eggsGarbage Software

Pros: Does 4:2:2 color space and full 1080P, not alot of money

Cons: This has to be the worst set of settings software that I ever saw, no explanation of settings, many adjustements allowed but will often produce ureadable files.

Great potential that is marred by horrible software

5 out of 5 eggsEpicsauce!

Pros: - Captures at 1080p30! Don't be confused! It captures your 1080p 60hz picture! It just only plays it back at 30fps which is fine for me but for some people this can be the selling point. So... just throwing that out there.
- Software is easy to use and work with. No problems like the other reviewers are listing where you have to switch between HDMI and D-Sub. I do not have this issue.
- Works fine with XSplit and HDMI including sound on the Xbox 360. I have an Xbox 360 Elite and it captures my video/audio very well. When you have the capture device open in XSplit, it will play back your audio. So if anyone was wondering how XSplit captures the audio. It just plays it back and captures it that way :). Easy.

Cons: - Doesn't Capture at 1080p 60fps. It captures at 1080p 30fps. I knew this buying it but to some viewers, like I said above, this may be a crucial buying point. It does however capture 30 of the 60fps so... maybe they might patch in 1080p60fps in the future? I can tell the card is capable :)
- Doesn't make me sammiches... or breakfast... but it sure shows a great movie from time to time ;-)

Other Thoughts: This card is really amazing. This is for those who really aren't too sure about the AverMedia Live Gamer HD and they want a lower costing 1080p capture card. This is definitely the way to go. Runs perfectly smooth on my PC on HDMI so I'd say... buy this :D
