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.
This review is from: Insten Model 675709 15 ft. Premium VGA Monitor Extended Cable 15 pin M-M
Pros: It does what I need it for. Tested it on a computer I have laying around and it works flawlessly.
Cons: None, but I guess if I absolutely had to complain about something, is just that I wish the plastic felt more rugged, but I mean, that's if you force me to demand a complaint.
Other Thoughts: Going to be used in a setup I have to split the video source from a Mac into a set of projectors, and a capture card on a PC using an active splitter so I can broadcast live video/powerpoint presentations exactly as they appear to the audience. I'm really excited to see the results.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked as advertised. Helped bring back a system from the depths of hell.
Cons: It doesn't make that system transform and roll out. Actually, I guess that's a pro since I don't want to chase it around, but I have to write something here.
Other Thoughts: I ordered two sticks of 2GB each, giving my system 4GB or RAM. However, each stick was labeled 2x2GB lol, that's a little silly. I guess I could scratch the "2x" and avoid any potential confusion in the future.
These were about the only sticks sold by Newegg that would enable an Inspiron 560 to work since the motherboard cannot take more than 2GB on each stick. If I wanted to, I could order two more of the same and give my machine 8GB of RAM, but it's going in the living room for my mom to watch YouTube and the occasional photo slideshow or k-drama my sister shows her lol.
