1 out of 5 eggs Drivers are beyond abhorrent. 05/30/2015

This review is from: AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR

Pros: If you can get it to run, when you get it to run, it's nice. When you get it to run. If you can. You won't, at least not for long, especially when they put out updates. But hey, if you can, it's great.

Cons: These drivers were programmed by people that Downs Syndrome patients would call slow. Even vegetables have more brain function, these people are practically on par with corpses.

So, get custom drivers, right? Because I mean, the people that made this are complete failures in every viable way when it comes to programming, even though they got the hardware right, so--

Nope! Proprietary. You have to deal with these horrendous, nonfunctional, incessantly crashing drivers for the ENTIRE DURATION of your ownership. These horrendous drivers clash with everything imaginable, and there's literally nothing you can do about it. Have fun.

Other Thoughts: Can you mistakes just release a version of this that allows for custom drivers? Seriously, if you can't do it right, let someone who doesn't suck do it.

3 out of 5 eggs Put it in an x16 slot. 09/29/2014

This review is from: AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR

Pros: It runs well in an X1, though it can't stream well unless it's in a higher-up slot. I ended up testing it in my Gfx card slot, and it worked great there. For some reason, it bogs down while streaming otherwise.

The software is simple and it works, sometimes.
It decodes HDCP (I assume, as it loads up PS3 video)
The quality's good, though 1080i is only alright but that's what you get here. (Not that consoles can even use that)

Cons: Do you like crashy software? Because you're going to get crashy software. When loading up video from the PS3, occasionally it crashes. And when I say crashes, I mean it stops working, closes out, and keeps the task running.

So end it with Task Manager, right? Wrong. Doesn't work. Ending process will do nothing for you, you are forced to restart. Better luck next time right? Wrong, because guess what it's probably doing to do when you load the computer back up?

If not for that vicious crash-loop cycle and it bogging down for really what should be no reason while streaming (What is it doing, making multiple copies? Shouldn't the load be on my computer, not the card?) , it would be pretty alright. Wish I could disable those stupid bars on the screen in another way than making my mouse sit still, though.

Other Thoughts: That crash-loop is mind-destroying, though. My other reviews are.. not entirely accurate, I would've edited them if Newegg would get with almost every other site that has posting in existence and make an edit function, but I guess that's too much to ask out of a site for TECHNOLOGY (Of which that gripe is relevant to, clearly).

2 out of 5 eggs 09/24/2014

This review is from: AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR

Pros: Runs smooth, sound's good, capture's not bad, etc.

Cons: When you try to stream with it, it stutters like a person with Parkinson's having a stroke. It's about as bad as it gets.

Other Thoughts: Thought HDCP was to blame for problems but as it turns out it's just that the software was made by hilariously incompetent developers and since it's proprietary sourced there's no way for anyone to un-break their junky program.
