Get to Know the Design

If there’s a geometric shape that can represent gamers, it would be a triangle - a combination of vitality (a circle) and stability (a square) which outlines gamers’ charactistics. And based on this key element, the AVerMedia’s engineers created a triangle metal mesh. Aside from its premium built quality and stylish design, it also provides excellent protection, ventilation, and allows the LED lighting to shine through.

general information

Packaging

The same design is beautifully presented on LGHD2’s packaging. Engraved and cut by high precision laser, the triangle mesh looks just as astonishing on paper sleeve as on metal sheet. The design of the inner box is also carefully thought through. Its pattern and silvery blue finishing mimics the LED lighting as you slowly pull it out of the sleeve. It's a one-of-a-kind unboxing experience.

Game capture card 5/13/2020 11:19:14 AM

Pros: Just as good as Elgato. Works as advertised.

Overall Review: If you are trying to stream using 2 PCs then this is a great option. Be aware that it’s best to use this card if your gaming monitor is 1080p. If using a 2k or 4K monitor and downgrading to 1080p for streaming I’d recommend the 4K capture card.

Great product 4/11/2020 3:18:22 PM

Pros: Records in 4K as advertised and the pass through feature works great.

Cons: The only I can really point out is the fact that a special software is needed to be able to stream with the device.

Overall Review: Works great, records even better. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is trying to start up a youtube on a budget.

Waste of Money, Product Faulty 10/10/2019 6:47:53 PM

Overall Review: I bought this item back in 2017, and never once got it to work properly. Furthermore, any attempt to contact customer service (which I should make clear was back during the time of purchase) was met with no attempt to help me solve my issue or refund me for a faulty product.

Good features and horribad 1/2/2019 3:29:48 AM

Pros: - Love that it records without a PC.
- Nice and small.
- 4k Pass thru works nicely

Cons: - USB 2... I find it funny that so many people say to make sure you have a newer computer that has usb 3. Why? There is no need. This device is micro usb. That's USB 2.0, not 3.0. If it said USB C, then that would be great, but it is not. What this means those unable to record at their desired fps is because they are trying to record from their software at 60 but the unit cannot give 1080p at 60fps through usb 2. No device out there can do 1080p at 60fps over usb 2 because it's impossible for usb 2. This company and others with usb 2.0 get away with not being honest with you. Yes, the unit can record to itself at 60fps, but the compression is very tight and you will indeed see that. Colors look faded and it drops frames due to separating files in 4gb blocks. That is the ONLY way you will record 60fps without buying another capture card and hooking up the passthrough to it which wouldn't make any sense to even buying this.

Some people will set this up and set up their recording software (I prefer Action, or OBS) and set it to record 60fps and since it's recording the screen, it will indeed record 60fps of the SCREEN, but that doesn't mean the video coming from the unit to the pc is 60fps. Only that you're now recording the screen at 60. If you at all find this hard to believe, please simply look it up. You cannot, and will not ever be able to pass 1080p at 60fps through usb 2.

Overall Review: This was a gift so I did not buy it on my account, thus not going to show me as a verified owner. Sadly my girlfriend heard me talking about it and even though I told her I was still in the research phase and not to get me one of the many I mentioned, she got me this. She is now going through the process of returning it to Newegg for a full refund. No swap unless they fix their lies and make the usb 2 port a usb 3 port or better. Make sure if this is on its way to you or you just got it to not throw away anything. Not even a bread tie or you will not be able to return it according to the policy.

I believe 2 eggs is a stretch to give that much, but I do because I love the idea of having a self contained unit record so I can free up my resources on my PC for the game only. So many things done right yet how on earth does someone produce a VIDEO CAPTURE device and put such an old connection? Anything at all to do with video and external anything should have not be seeing usb 2.0 unless it was before 2014. That's just horrible engineering in my professional opinion.

Nearly perfect streaming/capture device 10/5/2018 8:31:16 PM

Pros: + Very simple to use! Comes with all the cables you need. The cable specifically for connecting Playstations was a nice touch. Just plug everything in, add an SD card, and it operates with the single press of a button without even needing a computer. The well lit LED ring around the button will give you the current status of the device at a glance.
+ The software in PC mode is also extremely easy to use, it's right to the point with no distracting or confusing options to worry about. I was up and running with the whole thing in minutes.
+ Small thing, but the packaging was also really nice. It comes with a nice little carrying case, but the case is only big enough to hold the capture card and not all of the cables with it.
+ The ability to record your microphone audio to a separate file apart from your video stream is a great feature!

Cons: - The HDMI cable it came with is really, really short. I can see how this would work if your monitor is HDMI and you are passing through it with this capture card right in the center of your desk underneath said monitor. My monitor is DisplayPort however, and I am connecting a separate HDMI cable to my video card running as a mirrored output to the capture card. This HDMI cable is way too short for this purpose, and also likely unusable in most home theater setups for recording console gaming as well.
- Does not include any sort of editing software. Not really a con in my particular circumstances since I set out looking for a no frills device to just record/stream only and planned to use my own broadcasting and editing software, but its worth noting that most similar competing devices do provide software with more bells and whistles and actual editing capabilities built in.
- TimeShift function only works when recording devices other than your PC. You can somewhat work around this by selecting "Other PC" instead of "My PC" as the recording platform, but it in return limits your audio recording options so you have to choose what's more important to you.

Overall Review: * I knew this thing was small, but even so I was surprised how light and tiny it was once I had it in my hands.
* Make sure you pick up a large, fast SD card to use this thing in PC-free mode! Make sure it is formatted FAT32 before you use it!
* Recording quality is limited when not connected to a PC and saving to the SD card instead, but is still pretty good.
* Even though this isn't the latest and greatest model, I think it's still the best option because it has the most versatility by giving you the widest variety of options to record or stream over digital or analog inputs with or without a PC connected.

Decent Mobile Capture Device. Not So Great Customer Support 5/8/2018 5:43:25 PM

Pros: - Can capture 60fps up to 720p
- Comes with a ton of capturing cables that includes hdmi,composite, and component.
- SD card capture mode makes for great flexibility

Cons: -Capture software can be a bit of a chore getting to work especially for streaming
-No real customer support

Overall Review: To this day I was never was able to set LGP up as a streaming device due to its obscure setup. The lack of 1080p @ 60fps was kind of head-scratching. Avermedia will definitely not be my next purchase when looking for my next capture device.
