Works as Advertised 2

Pros: I am writing an update to my first review......I have had this unit now for 1 year and have recorded many videos with it. In my first review I stated that the only thing I didn't really like about the unit (there is always something not perfect about ANY device) was the HDCP encryption. It sucks, and it is this way with ALL recording devices that have HDMI recording I found. Unless you have a stripper of some sort you cannot record through HDMI. (PS3 and Xbox exception?). By accident. TOTAL accident, I needed to split the TV signal off to another device so I bought an ordinary HDMI splitter. Viola. NO MORE HDCP. I record through the HDMI perfect now.

Cons: The only con, other than wishing that the unit could defeat the HDCP, but I am sure if they defeated it within the unit they would not be able to legally sell them, is the timer recording. While it does work I wish they could improve it. Next would be if it could record in 5.1 sound like the Hauppauge.

Other Thoughts: I just saw it for sale in Newegg for 115.00. That sucks. I paid 150.00 for it.

Bad experience

Pros: None

Cons: Paid extra for internal hard drive and is no way to access that from the LAN port.
I could not transfer my personal video from Bluray or DVD over HDMI port (the unit does not record HDCP). Some video recorded is not in sync with audio.
Very bad technical support.

Not a true plug and play

Pros: Small console. Doesn't take up much space. Has a remote, set up is easy and the menu is easy to navigate. Easy to edit and review. Records in 1080p.

Cons: This was purchased for my son to easily record and upload his games onto YouTube. I thought it was a great price until I realized all the little extras involved. An external hard drive is needed to do any type of recording. You would need a large drive, at least a terabyte...$$ A VERY large capacity thumb drive might work, our 32GB was not large enough and you will need to format it. Save the headache and get an external drive. You can only access the internet via ethernet cable unless you buy a wifi adapter...$$ If you want to record any type of game that is HDCP then you will need to get a splitter...$$

Think about what you want to use this for and how much your are willing to spend and how much effort you want to put into all of this. If you already have these items then great, you are good to go. We went well over what I wanted to spend. We received our splitter today and the recording and editing was easy...now to upload...we will see...

Fantastic capture device

Pros: High quality video, HDMI and component capture, ability to edit and upload to YouTube, record commentary and video at the same time

Cons: Internal editing software is EXTREMELY limited, but it's good for people just starting off who don't want to deal with editing software. Would have liked to have s-video capture as well, but it's not a big deal at all. Would have also liked the ability to record gameplay and commentary as separate files

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a GREAT capture device that most definitely gets the job done. I've used AverMedia in the past and this not only meets but exceeds my expectations of their products. The gripes listed above are only minor. If you need a good quality capture device that won't go out on you, definitely pick this one up.

My Son Loves It!

Pros: Records 480p, 720p, and 1080p video which my son loves. We had to buy a composite cable for the Wii but it works great for recording gaming or TV in HD for non-encrypted HDMI devices. I looked at several different brands before settling on this one. This one for the options you get is definitely worth the price when I paid it over the competitions.

Cons: FYI: Recorded commentary isn't the clearest but that may be due to the cheap headset we purchased. Because the commentary was clear enough, I didn't purchase another headset to test which was the real issue so it is hard to say it is a con or not for this device hence me posting it as FYI.

Other Thoughts: So far so good! My son has recorderd around 34 hours of game recording so far and it has been working great!

Broken HDCP implementation with less than optimal resolution

Pros: records some types of video at less than optimal resolutions without problems

Cons: There are a few complains that I have with this device.

1) the user interface is garbage. I acknowledge that it needs to be simple enough for weak-minded xbox gamers to use, but they really did haul in the bottom of the barrel for their UI design on this one.

2) game capture devices implement copyright protection known as HDCP. This is to be expected. Without much difficulty, however, (and quite accidentally) I was able to find a bug in the implementation of the Game Capture II to think that I was streaming HDCP protected media when I really wasn't. It appears that it caches the HDCP flag, and doesn't reset it unless you disconnect the device and reconnect it. The end result is that I cannot record stuff that's not HDCP protected that I intended to. Quite disappointing.

3) While avermedia says that it supports 1080p, in truth, it messes with the signal so that even if you have 3 IDENTICAL output monitors, you cannot use features like nVidia surround, (something to do with the difference between 1920x1080 current vs 1920x1080 native). My conclusion is that the Game Capture HD II has limited monitor support. Now you're instinctive reaction might be "Why would I try to record video from nvidia surround", right? Well, you wouldn't. But you cannot even connect the device to such a monitor; So if you occasionally bounce between nVidia Surround and normal SLI modes, this device will prevent you from doing so unless you want to rewire your setup every time.

Other Thoughts: If all you intend to do with this device is record games from an xbox or other console, it might be your solution. By the way of contrast, if you're a PC gamer, or have other recording needs, stay away from this device.
