3 out of 5 eggsGreat Functionality, Some Issues

Pros: Works amazingly well with HDMI connections up to 1080i, although you'll want to stick to 720P for better fluid motion. Records in excellent quality, works after a simple driver installation, and the interface is easy to use -- mostly.

I can play any game directly from the interface -- the input lag is minimal to non-existent for me. I play games requiring very precise accuracy, and it works great.

Cons: Using the included Component-to-HDMI cable, which is necessary for devices like the Wii and PS3, I get pretty bad color-flickering. It's noticeable in my live streams, so I had to find a work-around (use HDMI, capture my computer screen using software recording to circumvent the stupid HDCP).

Occasionally acts erratically, launching the application and then crashing it randomly.

Other Thoughts: This is a great concept, relatively inexpensive, and produces good quality. You can play consoles on your PC without needing an additional display device, and then you can capture for streaming using a software recording device or other capture device. You cannot use this as a capture device for streaming and simultaneously display it on your monitor for play.

The Component-to-HDMI dongle and/or port produces such bad color-flickering that I just can't use it anymore. When I switched from using that to HDMI and found a way to get around HDCP, my live stream viewers immediately begin commenting how much better the feed looked to them. Is it the adapter cable, or the AV_IR port itself? I don't know, but I can't use it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Input Lag

Pros: Cheap PCIe x2 ($67 on sale), comes with useful cables. This is probably very handy for recording footage from tv, however, I didn't buy it for anything other than recording PS3 gameplay.

Cons: Unacceptable input lag. Feels like 1/3 to 1 second input lag when playing a game on my PS3 and recording. From my research there appears to be no way to fix this as it is the device itself. Splitting the video & audio signal from the game console might fix this, however, there'll still be some lag because of the splitter cable and tv.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why all the top reviews claim there's no input lag. Maybe they're biased or have a different revision of the same product. Perhaps they're only recording footage from a non-gaming device.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great for me

Pros: Easy to install. It was recognized as soon as I rebooted. Hooked up my camcorder via the hdmi, ran the software that came with it, then used the camcorder to copy 8mm film to my computer. It worked great and had great results. I've had no problems with the card since it was installed.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I'm running Window 7, 64 bit withe 24 gigs of Gskill DDR3 1600 and over 4 terabytes of high speed.

4 out of 5 eggsSurprising performance

Pros: I was surprised with the latency of the video stream. I actually played Xbox for a little bit. I didn't play any shooters or anything where you would notice the latency but its much better than the 1 and a half second lag from my last card.

Cons: I did ask if this particular card worked with the XBOX ONE. It did but the XBOX ONE must be placed in 720p since there is no 1080i option on the console.

Other Thoughts: Loving all these inputs.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

Pros: Ease of install, software, features, capture quality, cheap.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Someone wrote the software was from the 80's. I'd say the late 90's. Still, it's designed very well and the card works great on my AMD 8350 powered 8-core with 16GB RAM and a 2GB video card. I capture original resolution (1920x1080) from my Sony V1U and the quality is superb! Firewire went out on cam so this is next best solution. Probably better actually and for the price you can't beat it. Blackmagic Intensity Pro may be a better card, but why get that if this does what I need - and delivers - for over half the cost?? I'm not buying a card for its pretty software interface, I'm buying it so I can capture HDV video from a camera that retailed at $4800 just a few years ago! LOL Enjoy!

1 out of 5 eggsMr

Pros: none really

Cons: I installed this card and it took me two days to get it running. The website has little for support and when I contacted customer support they couldn't/wouldn't fix my problem. After getting this card to work it crashed my computer after an hour of use everytime. I unistalled the card and boom no more problems.

Other Thoughts: the drivers and support are over a year old.

5 out of 5 eggsI Like it!

Pros: Good Quality!
Good Price!
It works well!

Cons: not 1080p

Other Thoughts: After almost 3 years, this card has been faithful and true. The Software is good and the card is recognized by Streaming software such as Adobe Flash Media Encoder. I primarily use this card for Live Streaming and it works great!! Both the component and the HDMI input work fine!

3 out of 5 eggsMostly Okay

Pros: The card works well for component and composite connections. There is pretty much zero input lag so you're able to play games, even in realtime online multiplayer, without suffering response lag of any kind.

Cons: The standard software for this card is kinda ugly and unfriendly to use. The manufacturers seem to be from Thailand maybe? Or some other non-English country, so there's occasionally weird grammar errors in the program, on their site, in the help files, etc.

The biggest con I have is that the PS3 will not work on the HDMI port, it gives an HDCP error. This prompts you to download something from Microsoft and update some kind of list, but the website it links you to doesn't work (and all Micro$oft says about it is format-reinstall or pay up for additional support). Note this is on Windows 8, may be different for other OS.

Other Thoughts: The software it comes with is not required for use. The drivers alone are sufficient to use other software that can view 'cameras' on your system. The drivers put two 'cameras' on your system, so depending on which type of input you're using, it will show up on one of the two cameras but the other will just be black or 'no signal.'

If you don't like the default software, there's other capture card software out there that it works just fine with, once you've got the drivers installed. Personally I don't mind the software if I'm just playing by myself (I just play in full screen and then all the ugly UI isn't visible anymore), but I like that I can view it in Xsplit instead because that's what I use when I'm streaming, and the drivers work within Xsplit just fine (with the exception of the PS3 HDCP issue I mentioned.)

Due to the age of the card, it can be hard to find the drivers. Googling 'C027' as the search term finds them pretty easily on AverMedia's site though.

Keep in mind with all capture cards, most video that's made to be shown on a TV is in fairly low resolution. A Nintendo Wii for instance has a maximum resolution of 640x480 or 720x480 if widescreen. Playing Gamecube, PS2, or Wii games for instance (or older), are gonna look BLURRY when you put them fullscreen on a 1080p monitor. I personally haven't tried TV signals but I assume it would be the same. This is not the card's fault. Try backing farther away from the monitor to reduce the blurriness factor, or simply don't play in full screen.

Finally, the HDMI input can only go up to 1080i, not 1080p. There really is no difference visually, but it means other things have to be set slightly differently to accommodate this limitation.

Ultimately, given the age of the card, there's probably better cards out there available by now. However, this one really gets a lot done for the price, especially if you do not plan to be using HDMI input, such as with a Wii which does not do HDMI at all. However it also supports HDMI input too, if you plan on using both, which is the reason I upgraded to this one from previous ones that did not support HDMI at all.

After having this card for two years, and particularly with the PS3 HDCP issue (which hasn't always been an issue, perhaps it's specific to Windows 8 or a format-reinstall might fix it after all), I'm still overall very satisfied with it. If I can't fix the PS3 HDCP issue though it'll be time to get a new one.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Bother

Pros: None

Cons: Never got it to work. After installing the card my computer couldn't automatically install the drivers so I put in the software disc. The software disc was also unrecognizable so I was forced to hunt down the drivers on Aver's website. It was completely impossible to find the right version of the software I needed and I decided to give up. Now I have to pay $25 to return a $90 card. My advice would be to go with a trusted company like Black Magic. It dawned on me too late that I hadn't even heard of the company Aver.
