What's Live Gamer Portable?
Live Gamer Portable is a USB box that records and streams your gameplay up to 1080p. Designed specifically for game lovers, this pocket-size game capture device comes with an on-board H.264 hardware encoder, which guarantees lower CPU usage and smaller file size even for full HD footage, not to mention the file format is extremely easy to work with in post-editing and uploading. Live Gamer Portable supports a wide range of resolutions and adopts HDMI and component connections for different gaming platforms. The HDMI pass-through function guarantees smooth HD gaming even while recording the gameplay. On top of that, it can be directly connected to streaming platforms; even add live commentary when streaming. From now on, sharing your legendary matches is no longer a dream.
Flexible
Live Gamer Portable adopts a USB interface and works perfectly with a tower PC or laptop. With support for a wide range of resolutions and its HDMI and component inputs, Live Gamer Portable provides flexible connectivity for various gaming platforms, and allows you to record or stream game footage from your Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and even a gaming PC.
Performance
With the advanced H.264 hardware encoding technology, Live Gamer Portable takes care of the HD video processing and avoids CPU overload. The hardware encoder also guarantees stable frame rates when you game, record or even stream. The Live Gamer Portable certainly brings smooth gaming and viewing experiences without frame dropping or choppy games.
Efficiency
Live Gamer Portable requires low CPU usage, which lets your PC focus on the game without being distracted by video-processing tasks. The MP4/H.264 format generates smaller files even for 1080p footage, and is super easy to work with in mainstream post-editing software. It no longer takes a long time to upload or transcode the footage you want to share.
Ultra Portable
The Live Gamer Portable is the only game capture card that provides the option of "PC-Free Mode", allowing you to record video games without a PC. Just flip the switch, insert an SD card, and you are ready to go! Under PC-Free Mode, Live Gamer Portable can be powered by your game platform via USB, with no additional power outlet needed. Live Gamer Portable sets you free from any possible hindrances when you game on the go!
Instantly Share
For those who love to share, Live Gamer Portable generates sharp footages that are ready to be posted to social networks. In addition, AVerMedia's exclusive RECentral software provides intuitive settings for live streaming and quick connection to popular streaming platforms. It is capable of broadcasting live gameplay to TwitchTV and Ustream directly with your own account, and even allows custom RTMP settings!
Voice Commentary
The RECentral software preserves not only your epic gameplay, but also the live commentary. It lets you trigger the voice commentary with a simple hotkey or a push-to-talk option. The voice file can be saved separately for post-production, or be streamed out with live gameplay over the Internet. Plus RECentral's convenient connection to streaming platforms, Live Gamer Portable surely makes voicing yourself easier than ever.
Hot Button & LED Indicator
Sharing your gameplay with Live Gamer Portable cannot be easier. With just one press on the Hot Button, the game recording or streaming starts in no time. The Hot Button also serves as an on-board LED indicator, the color of illumination and the lighting frequency help you know the working status with a single glance.
TimeShift
With the TimeShift function, you can easily jump back to any footage where you want to start recording. Missing outstanding footage will not happen again.
XSplit Supported
For those looking for advanced streaming functionalities, Live Gamer Portable is fully compatible with XSplit Broadcaster! XSplit Broadcaster lets you add different types of media to the stream, like webcam, graphics and other video inputs. You can even customize scenes to meet different streaming purposes.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Good Quality
- Easy to get started. Was up in running in no time.
- Easy to record in PC-Free mode.

Cons: - Skips frames ever 15 minutes during PC-Free mode
- Software is buggy, can crash from time to time.
- Requires SD card, instead of Flashdrive.
- Only accepts Fat32 SD cards, which splits the files in segments. Which causes the missing frames. Should went with different file format.

Other Thoughts: If you want a capture device I would stick with desktop versions. HD-PVR 2 or Elgato HD60. Both do a great job.

5 out of 5 eggsBought this for Linux

Pros: Device works standalone. That is, combined with a HDMI powered splitter, this device can record 720p HD of any HDMI source to a SDHC card. The files are 4GB chunk (due to vfat on the SDHC) h264/aac mpegts files... they can be concatenated into one file and transcoded using things like HandBrake. It is an easy way of recording the ouput of your PC via HDMI, or Roku, etc. An powered HDMI splitter will handle the disabling HDCP on the capture side.

Cons: No native driver support for Linux, so cannot do 1080p captures.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this device as a very portable way to capture HD audio/video. And the resulting files can be easily processed with Linux.

4 out of 5 eggsPC free mode is great!

Pros: Had this since October of last year, works great for recording Xbox 360 gameplay, have only used PC free mode, works great once you get it going.

Cons: SD cards must be in fat32 format, Avermedia is zero help as far as this goes, will post link to app in other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Don't get a Sandisk SD card to use with this, even their high end ones can produce choppy files, go with a Transcend card, using a 25Mb/s card and all vids are smooth. Use this to format your card http://download.cnet.com/2Tware-Fat32Format/3000-2094_4-75623509.html

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: -Extremely good audio/video recording quality
-No frame/performance loss while recording
-Great quality in PC free mode (still 1080p, but the bit rate is a little lower)
-Small form factor
-Great software/drivers
-Easy set-up

Cons: -Doesn't make me bacon

Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of negative reviews on this device. There are obviously some duds, but that's the case with ALL electronic devices. For the people who are having issues with the audio passthrough, you have to tell the AverMedia RECentral software that you are using the passthrough. It will NOT automatically detect it. Also, on the Avermedia website there are great forums and FAQs on the product and workarounds for common issues. This great device.

2 out of 5 eggsNot ready for mass usage

Pros: Nice feature set. Nice package. Great idea. Great price.

Cons: HDMI audio pass through and recording doesn't work on my unit. All I hear is the a chopping sound. This might be a bad unit, but there's no way to tell because most of the support infrastructure for this device is not yet in place yet. Avermedia's support web site has a lot of "under construction" links. I hate to return things but there is little choice. Even if it turns out to be user error.

Other Thoughts: Might be a good product but support isn't ready.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but....

Pros: +When it works, it works amazingly. This picture is sharp and very close to the source image while streaming (this kind of depends on your internet as well).
+Light and compact. Very good design.
+HDMI.
+Packaging is amazing. Brovo here avermedia.

Cons: -Was a pain to get working with the PS3. Had to randomly mess with settings to finally get it to work.
-Had to return the first one and get a replacement because the first was DOA
-Rec Central(the software) is required to get this thing to work at all. I really don't mind the program itself, but I wish I could use it with out it. However, if you don't run the software, your console will not be recognized.
-The HDMI cable that comes with this is literally about a foot long, which makes you have to either put the thing in an awkward place, or get a longer cord. Seems like they could have just included a normal size cord here for what you pay for this thing.
-The price is too high for this... seriously.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase. However, a person who is not a tech inclined as myself (or maybe just not as stubborn?) might have serious issues getting this thing to work. Avermedia needs to make the whole thing more user friendly like they did with the Game Capture HD. That thing was so simple and easy to use (and it had a remote!).

5 out of 5 eggsYes it works

Pros: 1. Hardware is plug and play
2. Streaming video quality
3. Good value for the money

Cons: 1. Recentral from Avermedia could be better
2. Documentation is sparse.

Other Thoughts: You need some experience to use this capture card. I opted for the freeware OBS (Open Broadcast Software) instead of the Reccentral from Avermedia which I found to be a CPU hog. OBS can be as well, but it seemed easier to adjust the settings. I use a Core i5 laptop and stream at 720 with 25 fps. If you don't know what that means, you probably will have trouble setting this device up. If your just trying to get started and understand the basics of streaming, then I would definitely recommend this capture card. No need to open up your computer and with a little bit of fine tuning the software setup, you should be streaming in no time.

1 out of 5 eggscrashes when recording on PC mode

Pros: its portable for sure which is great

Cons: any time I try and capture using PC Mode the unit resets and the application crashes.

Other Thoughts: neweggs RMA process is a nightmare, be sure to keep every little thing in the box - even for an exchange they are strict with this (little missing cardboard is a nono). Futhermore they are strict even when you offer to pay for a new one (advance rma) and just take the new unit and send back the rest in tact!

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: Looks great. Good idea

Cons: Won't work. Horrible support and no drivers for windows 7 64 bit. They forgot to tell us bout that one.

Other Thoughts: Frustrated trying to get it to work and then I found out it won't. Going with Ellgato. Should have known better. Avermedia is going down fast. Sad

2 out of 5 eggsRecords Multi-Platforms

Pros: Captures PC/360 in 1080P, PS3 720P with component adapter.
Easy functionality, easy to use. Supports TS and MP4 formats.

Cons: Does not come with software to edit videos, clip them.
PC issues with using USB headsets and MIcs. Can't just select your USB headset as an audio source, has to be either HDM/Line-In/Component-LR. In order for me to use my USB headset and the built in mic, I have to set up the audio process using stereo mix enabled. Audio line out from motherboard to LGP, and then using windows stereo mix to send that audio to my USB headset, and enabling my mic as default. This process allows the user to continue to use their headset BUT the audio quality of stereo mix is awful, too much distortion during high action themed games like BF4. There is betther sound quality and zero distortion when not using stereo mix and just selecting your main headset as default audio source.
