This review is from: AVerMedia C985 Live Gamer HD - Capture & Share Your PC Game Footages
Pros: GREAT BOX lol. easy to get set up. works well with xsplit. drivers/firmware are located right on website (note that others have had problems with firmware).
Cons: either my card is defective or the card is bugged to be set at only 720p and can't go any higher than that. read other thoughts for more details.
note i am getting a replacement and will be reporting back to see if it is just the card or if all of them are bugged. i will also show my comp build if the next one is bugged too. also i will make a video and upload it to help explain what is in other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I am a very well knowledge game streamer and IT specialist. i have read most of the reviews here about this card and i would like to say that all of them are right. Last night (night before this post) i tested out this card excited to do a two computer stream to twitch.tv using Xsplit. after taking the card out of the box, putting it into the computer, and installing the drivers it decided that i would not function at 1080p. what i mean by that is when i duplicate my screens (my asus monitor which is 1080p and the capture card that is hooked up with hdmi from my video card) it changes my resolution down to 720p. When i extend the displays (asus monitor is main display and the capture card is second display) it has my monitor at 1080p while the capture card is at 720p. as i look at the settings on my computer it is telling me that both displays are at 1920*1080 (aka 1080p) but when i move a window from my monitor to the capture card it changes the resolution of my window to 720p (what this does is makes my window big but blurry like as if you just zoomed into the window itself). i know it is not my video card because i tried using my intel integrated graphics instead and it did the same thing. this may not make a lot of sense to everyone here but ALL-IN-ALL the capture card either is bugged or this particular one that i have is defective. either way this is another bad review for this card, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!
note that i tried it before and after firmware update. the firmware did not bork my card though where some others seem to have had this problem.
Pros: great recording quality! the settings on the mic are awesome, exp. there is a stereo function that makes it pick up everything to the right and sends it out to the right channel, and to the left it sends out a signal to the left channel! REALLY AWESOME I THINK! (most mics only support mono sound features)
Cons: the stand is not the greatest stand in the world and due to a very large microphone it makes it kinda tough to extend it all the way that you may want, weights o the legs could fix that problem though. this is not a con for me, but you may want to know that this mic pics up most things but at very high quality, it is not bad sounding, but if you wanted to use this in teamspeak or something like that, i would suggest using push-to-talk function.
Other Thoughts: easy set up and quality is amazing. great bundle if you are a streamer like me who wants great quality stuff.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec ISK600 Black Aluminum / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: the only thing that is really aluminum is the cover (which I think is great). If you are someone who likes to have a solid and sturdy steel case THAT is ITX, you need to go for this one. There are two bays that are easy to remove, they are the mini optical bay and the bay that holds two hard drives. on the inside, there is a spot that can hold an extra hard drive and no one seems to show that is there (I use that one for my SSD). the front of the case lights up with a cool blue! can hold the largest EVGA graphics cards. Can hold the largest PSU's. can support ANTEC's Kuler (antec's water cpu cooler) the small one.
Cons: the only thing that bothers me is that they don't have two fan spots on the case, there is the one on the back an that is it.
Other Thoughts: if you are worried that the Kuler water cooler will get in the way of your graphics card or other things, don't worry, it does not. the case is large for a ITX case but I think it is well worth it if you are not too worried for space. I have put Asrocks Z87E-ITX motherboard in it and it works like a charm! Great case over all for a small built computer.READ FULL REVIEW
