4 out of 5 eggsWorks great but need correct Drivers !!

Pros: With the older/oldest drivers it can record HDCP content - driver ignores the copy protect signal. See internet for those Driver versions.
Also, you might want to put the 'priority' of the process to 'real time' this might prevent or lessen any stuttering &/or 'affinity' and make sure it is using all your cores !!
Also, capture using Mpeg2 (H.262), uses less CPU and less stuttering than mpeg4 (H.264) !!

Cons: Needs a strong CPU PC, and stop running any other process/app that uses any CPU !!
Card uses an PCI-express slot, so make sure you have a spare !

Other Thoughts: Video Capture is a 'real time' occurrence, so why do you wonder if some stuttering occurs, Winblows, Linus or Mach OS are NOT real-time OS, so you must make sure you prioritize the capture process (not so subtle hint to the OS) or have a huge excess of cpu and fast HDD - its called PC 101 guys !!

1 out of 5 eggsdo not reccomend

Pros: high data transfer rate
price

Cons: there is a horrible delay when recording high resolution videos from hdmi.

if you plan to record ps3 /ps4 footage, don't count on it. this card doesn't support hdcp

the software is a nightmare. let me to tell you how it works.

first you open the software, and everything seems fine, a bit cheesy, but fine. you go to the capture page and the program crashes.

3 out of 5 eggsPut it in an x16 slot.

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).

5 out of 5 eggsOne of my best purchases ever

Pros: Use if for hdmi input of my tv box.
Componet input for my Wii.
I like the software with it. It is reliable and works.

I HIGHLY RECCOMEND.

Cons: Software that comes with it is not very fancy.
Wish it had even more inputs

2 out of 5 eggs

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.

2 out of 5 eggsOh boy, more proprietary bull.

Pros: It's quick and works well as long as you're only attempting to get footage to exist on your screen. Sound's good, video's good, etc. It's cheap too, I guess.

Cons: HDCP. You're going to have to jump through every hurdle physically possible (and even some that don't) to even be able to try streaming with this.

Do not bother if you intend to stream, your only options will be to get tricked drivers (and good luck finding them), to use Component/RCA/etc (Which are terrible, and you could buy something way cheaper for that), or to suck it up and never actually stream (Then why did you even bother buying this).

It is very much not worth the money you will be paying and hours you will be devoting to try to make this thing work. It will not.

The software is total unredeemable garbage as well - It looks like it was made in the 90s and runs accordingly. It does function and fairly easily, but since it's extremely proprietary (Just like HDCP is), you're never going to find a better alternative.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to stream some gameplay off consoles for my buddies that are far away, but it looks as though I'm never going to be able to do that because of a hybrid of the utterly terrible program and worthless HDCP. You're better off not even bothering.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great at first

Pros: Installed easily in WinXP
Worked good for casual viewing of an external box (Roku) while using the PC
App is easy to use and has enough features
I was very pleased - in the beginning

Cons: I noticed that while playing video, the computer was somewhat less responsive. For example, there would be a slight delay just switching windows and the like. But it was no big deal.

Well, within about 3 days of using this card, I started getting long pauses, where the PC would just hang for a minute or so. It got progressively worse over the next 24 hours, to the point where the PC basically got unusable. This was happening whether I had the Avermedia app open or not. In fact, even just booting the computer became a 5 minute affair, where normally it's about a 30 second process.

The interesting thing is, the card and app still worked. So I thought something else was going wrong with the PC. I went through the motions of uninstalling other hardware and software, but I wasn't touching the problem.

Finally I pulled the Avermedia capture card out of it's slot, fired up the PC, and all was well.

I'm RMA'ing it for a replacement, hoping that something just went wrong with this one, because it worked fine for a few days and I was very happy with it. I'll write another review and describe how the new one worked out

4 out of 5 eggsNice picture

Pros: Its simple great picture for HDMI watching live TV IN FULL SCREEN

Cons: You cannot multitask with this when recording it skips.
This has to run by itself
It need a simple recording feature for time say when you want to record just put in how long.
Now you have to schedule the recording to get the time to what you want.
to many steps for something thAT SHOULD BE SIMPLE.

4 out of 5 eggsGonna be famous now!

Pros: It just works. Solid, simple software. Lag Free. Low CPU overhead. Compact. Easy Install. Windows 8.1 compatible. Solid picture quality. Great recordings at very adjustable bitrates, resolutions and output codecs.

Cons: Cant REALLY do 1080i. In 1080i from my xbox 360 it ghosts very noticeably. It is not unusable, but it is not professional quality. Others have noted this and have tracked down the cause to the deinterlace codec this card uses.
The solution is to simply set the xbox 360 hdmi output to 720p. Its a bummer if you have a 1080p screen, but the truth is that the vast majority of xbox games are no more than 720p many others are even lower. So actually this may help your overall resolution as the xbox scalar is not at work as often.
That being said, the so so 1080i res is worth knocking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: My rig ...
AMD 8350 @ 4.6 ghz
AMD 7970
nVidia Quadro 5800
32gb of Ram @ 1866mhz
850 Watt corsair PSU
This capture card.
Windows 8.1 Pro
