This review is from: AVerMedia AVerTV HD DVR C027 PCI-Express x1 Interface
Pros: It just works. Solid, simple software. Lag Free. Low CPU overhead. Compact. Easy Install. Windows 8.1 compatible. Solid picture quality. Great recordings at very adjustable bitrates, resolutions and output codecs.
Cons: Cant REALLY do 1080i. In 1080i from my xbox 360 it ghosts very noticeably. It is not unusable, but it is not professional quality. Others have noted this and have tracked down the cause to the deinterlace codec this card uses.
The solution is to simply set the xbox 360 hdmi output to 720p. Its a bummer if you have a 1080p screen, but the truth is that the vast majority of xbox games are no more than 720p many others are even lower. So actually this may help your overall resolution as the xbox scalar is not at work as often.
That being said, the so so 1080i res is worth knocking off an egg.

Pros: Got it open box for $179!
I wish I could give it 4.5 stars.
Hype is usually just that ... hype, but this monitor lives up to it. It is truly a fantastic GAMING monitor. It really makes a huge difference if you have a card that can push past 60fps.
Great buttons and osd.
Good driver support for Windows 8
Great Stand ... no wobble wobble.
Good cable management
Plays BluRay 3D very well with my AMD7970
Skyrim, GTAIV, Bioshock, Tomb Raider, SF4, all are smooth as butter now.
NO GHOSTING AT ALL!
Cons: wonky colors
I swear this monitor should come with a TECHNICOLOR logo. It looks like a 1950's movie. That being said ... it looks better than my 5 Y/O 1080p monitor ... but that aint saying much.
The speakers are junk too, but who cares ... all LCD monitor speakers are junk even on high end HDTVs.
All of this was expected though and is a small price to pay for 144hz.
Other Thoughts: Buy a second monitor that has an IPS panel and use it for art and movies.
Be sure to get the right cable and install the drivers for the monitor ... yes ... for the monitor. These are NOT generic pnp monitor drivers. Your computer will have no idea what this monitor is without the drivers.
ASUS tech support is laughable. I called them about a display port issue and the tech did not know what display port was.
ULTIMATELY, I WOULD BUY ANOTHER.
