1 out of 5 eggsExtremely Disappointed

Pros: Does what it claims to, when it works..

Cons: Card causes BSOD on multiple machines that are different chipsets.

Blackmagic Designs refused to do a cross-ship / advanced RMA and insisted they inspect my card to see that something is wrong with it prior to shipping me a new card. (For those that don't know, this means they put a hold on your credit card until they receive the defective item). This wouldn't had been a problem if the card was completely broken, but it wasn't and I use it daily. I also sent them memory dumps from the BSOD caused by the card. (It would happen when the card would stop capturing video, as soon as I close the capturing program the PC would BSOD in xsplit, OBS, and blackmagic designs media express)

Another issue I've come across besides the BSOD (which happens every other day or so) is sometimes the card will completely just stop working and I have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

Cons relating to this device even if it actually worked properly:

4:2:2 video sampling, 720p limitations..in this day and age there is technology that has advanced past this device, and costs less.

Also, I wasn't ever able to get analog devices to capture at any resolution, only HDMI capturing works.

Other Thoughts: Extremely dissatisfied with the product, and the support behind it. Recently ordered a competitors capture card as a replacement.

I saw another reviewer who had similar issues to me, and said that Blackmagic Designs claimed nothing was wrong with the card after they had sent it in-I'm not going to waste my time (and my own money for shipping) to risk them to jerking me around with their defective product.

1 out of 5 eggsCompany does not work with customers,

Pros: None that I could find - does not work on any of my 64 bit Win 7 machines.

Cons: Contacted company a few days after I purchased. There is a No Refund - No Return - policy - if you buy it and it doesn't work for you - too bad - you're out of luck.

2 out of 5 eggscouldn't get it to work with analog inputs

Pros: Nothing for me. Triple checked and researched for hours to make sure I hooked it up right.

Cons: I bought this instead of the Avermedia Live Gamer HD because it has analog support. Right now I have old video equipment, IE a 640x480 camera and using S video for the input. I eventually want to get new equipment, but I had to build the new PC first and be able to capture video for now.
I could never get this to work with the composite input, so I simply cannot comment on it's digital capabilities. Once I get all my equipment updated I will likely switch back to this card and see what it can really do. I want to eventually be doing full 1080p, which is why I bought this card in the first place.

Other Thoughts: I picked up the Avermedia C027 in the mean time, I had it completely set up and recording within 20 minutes. Highly recommend that card for analog inputs, SUPER easy to work with.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've used this card on my main rig (Core i7-860, ASUS P7P55D), mostly for capturing from my 360 and other platforms I own (even did some recording from a PAL vcr). Using the MJPEG codec (because the others will make a very large file), i got fantastic quality that I could edit real easily for various projects. File formats work well with Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe CS6, even WMM.

I've done a little streaming as well, and it works just fine.

The HDMI Passthru is very convenient, and so is the breakout cable if capturing analog.

All in all, one of my favorite pieces of tech.

Cons: On the occasion it sometimes gives me a black screen, but rebooting my comp fixes that (this is rare for me). Otherwise, I really like using it.

It is an internal card, so if you are recording from a console or a media player, make sure its within a close range (unless you've got long cables)

Slight bummer that the 1080p is restricted to 1080p30 (30 fps ish) and wont capture full hd from consoles, but that's alright. (I generally captured at 720p60, good ratio of filesize to quality)

Other Thoughts: Some helpful tips for people who are looking into this:

Make sure you definitely check that you have an available PCI Express x1 slot, and that your Mobo/CPU is powerful (don't want to drop frames or be incompatible, generally speaking P, H, and Z series intel mobos should be good to go unless explicitly mentioned on the blackmagic website)

Also be sure you've got a good amount of HDD space. I do use the MJPEG codec provided by BM, and for a 12 min, 720p, 60fps file for example is about 9 gigs in size. Having a descent sized scratch drive (i used a 1TB WD Black, though raid configs, ssds, or other high speed solutions will also work) is strongly recommended. The uncompressed ones can yield FAR larger file sizes so be careful with what mode you capture with (this will vary on your projects)

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

Pros: Amazing quality, but not worth the trouble

Cons: BSOD, Not compatible, Too many problems, Too finicky, No refund, Waste of money, Company does not work with customers, Customers must pay shipping for warranty, No guarantees

Other Thoughts: I WOULD NOT recommend this product to anyone! It is a complete waste of money, you will not get a refund if it happens to not be compatible with your PC or MAC. The most they will do is make you pay shipping to send it to them for them to tell you nothing is wrong with it. It will BSOD your computer. The card is just way to finicky and of all the people I know who has used this about 50 it has worked for 2 people. You will spend every waking hour trying to figure out why it worked for the first 4 weeks, the BSOD'd your PC for the next 2 weeks and just completely stopped working. I would strongly recommend getting an ElGato or an AverMedia! I really hope you take my advise and not end up like me, out of a capture device and out of $200.00.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up/Awesome!

Pros: Worked great, with little hassle.

Doesn't need much power to operate.

Worked with the drivers included and updated ones with no issue.

Works with multiple streaming clients:
FMLE
Xsplit
Wirecast
Livestream

Does not kill your computer as most of the encoding is done on the card itself.

Has passthrough for HDMI and the breakout cable

Cons: Can run slightly warm, but nothing to worry about.

Doesn't make me food

Have to set the capture rate in the included software and your client if streaming

Other Thoughts: Client software for streaming can be clunky, depending on your setup/wants.

4 out of 5 eggsBest card for the $$

Pros: After reading many reviews and scouring forums, we have finally decided to go with the intensity pro. Our media team needed something to stream and capture 1080p uncompressed. Massive wear on any system as far as R/W to the disk for capture. Will come back and review after I've had some more time with it, but this seems to be one of the best cards on the market for the price. And the most compatible/reliable.

Most newer systems should handle this, but from what I gather through their support and multiple online forums:

Intel Proc
Asus/GB/MSI Mobo
4 GB + RAM
if capturing uncompressed, have an ssd or a good raid setup

These are only the suggested/somewhat supported configuration.

There are reports of this being used in an AMD environment.

Cons: Need more time with it. Doesn't work with most Dell machines.
