This review is from: Hauppauge 1540 HD PVR Rocket Portable Game Recorder
Pros: When recording the game play is lag less. It uses pass through technology which helps you with game performance while recording to a flash drive or directly to computer. This little device processes the video on the fly which keeps the heat off the computer. The software you can download from hauppauge has an option to link your youtube account and upload video without opening a browser. It also has quick edit buttons if you need to trim up the video. You can record with a flash drive on the fly up to 32 GB. I also saw somewhere in a hauppauge faq that you can record off of netflix and such but you have to use an analog signal (component cables) because HDMI uses HDCP.
Cons: The game capture software that you can download for free is kind of generic at best. I use it for the time being until i can find something better. I had a little issue with the microphone jack. I had to really push it into the slot fairly hard just to get it to pick up. Maybe that might have been my equipment but i thought it was kind of weird.
Other Thoughts: When you record on a flash drive it records the file as an MP4 which partitions every 2GB (20 Mins) which you cannot edit with the software. Something to keep in mind. The box gets a little warm but you have to remember that it does the processing on the spot so its understandable. If you want to be a youtube walkthrough sensation like theRadBrad or Ghostrobo, this is where to start. And i believe this latest firmware update allowed for PS4 and Xbox One recording as well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Huge case for plenty of air flow. Comes with two fans and the fans have hardwired speed controls which kinda makes no sense to me considering most motherboard BIOS will let you control the speed anyway. Case sides came off easy and supplies plenty of hardware.
Cons: when i got this in the mail i heard some loose hardware jingling all over the place. (no it wasnt santa clause) the 50 million thumb screws it came with busted open from the plastic bag they were in. i had to carefully go through all the nook and crannies to pick each one out. The reset button on the front of the case is kinda cheap and you need something thin and long to press it with unless you got super skinny fingers.
Other Thoughts: 2 USB's in the front, microphone and headphone jack in the front as well. power and HDD LED blue lights as well. I like the mesh front covering. looks industrial.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is pretty boss. I am a sworn nvidia customer till the day i die (or grown up). I play l4d, fallout 3 and new vegas most of the time and this card blows through without a single hiccup.
Cons: Make sure you read the dimensions so it can fit your case.
Other Thoughts: I barely hear the fan. The motherboard i use reads 40-42C degrees during normal gaming operations which is nominal averave for my rig so it stays cools. Heat pipes look cool. Drivers are included on a cd. About these rebates....people seem to have problems cashing and sending them in. YOU NEED TO READ THE INSTRUCTION TO THE VERY LAST DETAIL. If it tells you to cut the address out and tape it to the envelope, then do it. Trust me thats gotta be 99% of the problem because somebody didnt read the instructions all the way. They dont send checks either, then send a debit card. Good card though i love itREAD FULL REVIEW
