AVerMedia C875 (Live Gamer Portable) Video Device

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Records Multi-Platforms 11/12/2013

This review is from: AVerMedia C875 (Live Gamer Portable) Video Device

Pros: Captures PC/360 in 1080P, PS3 720P with component adapter.
Easy functionality, easy to use. Supports TS and MP4 formats.

Cons: Does not come with software to edit videos, clip them.
PC issues with using USB headsets and MIcs. Can't just select your USB headset as an audio source, has to be either HDM/Line-In/Component-LR. In order for me to use my USB headset and the built in mic, I have to set up the audio process using stereo mix enabled. Audio line out from motherboard to LGP, and then using windows stereo mix to send that audio to my USB headset, and enabling my mic as default. This process allows the user to continue to use their headset BUT the audio quality of stereo mix is awful, too much distortion during high action themed games like BF4. There is betther sound quality and zero distortion when not using stereo mix and just selecting your main headset as default audio source.

3 out of 5 eggs It captures 10/30/2013

This review is from: AVerMedia C875 (Live Gamer Portable) Video Device

Pros: *Multiplatform capturing
*1080p capture on PC/XBox360
*720p on PS3 (due to HDMI protection)
*PC free option
*Doesn't eat CPU at all, nor hit FPS, if gaming on PC.
*Ability to decide how big those recording file sizes are going to be.

Cons: *A bit pricey, since it doesn't come with editing software.
*Short HDMI and USB cables.

Other Thoughts: Bought this device in May 2013
Says there is no support for USB headsets but there is a work around this by tweaking Playback and Recording devices.
Sadly, Nvidia cards GTX650 and up now provide shadow play, which allows you to capture game footage using your GPU (as of Oct 28, 2013). Newer AMD cards also let you do some sort of capturing thanks to EXPERIENCE PREDATOR.
I cannot recommend this device, unless you are planning to record from PC and multiple consoles.
If you're planning to game only on PC, best to just use the money towards a newer GPU with game capture features.

Creative Labs 70GH020000000 Wireless Gaming Headset
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Amzing sound quality... R.I.P. 05/15/2013

This review is from: Creative Labs 70GH020000000 Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: Great sound quality
Comfortable (varies on head size)

Cons: Recon3D receiver faulty after a year.

Other Thoughts: Well, sadly it's been barely less than a year and half, and the Recon3D wireless receiver just stopped working. No longer powers on, which means you can't use the headset. I did contact customer support, their guess was corrupted firmware. After several failed attempts to reinstall firmware, it was concluded that I just have a faulty device now. Since this device/bundle only has a 1 year warranty, the best they could do is this "It is more economical to purchase a new product than getting this unit repaired. In addition, the new purchase unit will come with a full 12 month warranty coverage. Alternatively, we would like to offer you a 10% discount code on your next purchase of any similar Creative product from our online store. This discount does not apply to refurbished items, bundles and newly-released products. This discount cannot be used together with any other promotions or special offers."....

Any who, headset is still alive, and it was great while it lasted, but it didn't last very long. Very, very sad, dare I say, I expected 4 or 5 years or even longer, of life from such a device, not a cheap spontaneous death.
