I primarily bought this to record video games while playing them. I did some recordings and used the video editing software. The quality (720p) is nice and the video was as I had expected and hoped. The interface is simple and easy to use. It is great for what I want it for. Now onto the flaws that I have encountered. First off - the most annoying one which may be a problem with my box in particular. The component connection coming in from the video game source often loses one of the color connections making it look awful. Unfortunately it is captured this way and it simply takes me just slightly moving the box or touching the cables to fix (I have tried different sets of cables). Second problem for you gamers out there. The software seems to have a problem adjusting when the source adjusts resolutions. Example is on the PS3 - I am on the XMB screen prior to loading the game, but once the game loads it adjusts the resolution. At this point the capture screen goes gray and doesn't seem to pick up the source video anymore. If you started your recording prior to starting the game, you would be recording gray the rest of the way. The last problem I had seems to be a software issue, but I can't be sure. I plugged an HDMI cable in for output. NOTE: The HDMI cable is NOT for passthrough to be used during recordings. It is only for media playback. I cannot however playback any media other than what I have recorded directly through the box. Granted it looked great on my 55" 1080p 120Hz LCD, but I could not playback any other video files even though it is supposed to be able to. Everytime I hit the button to output to HDMI, I get a gray screen. Despite submitting a support ticket going on a month ago, they continuously tell me that they are researching the problem.Read more ›

This product would be fantastic i this company had a shred of customer service. My DVR is obviously defective. It shuts off after 2-5 minutes of use every time and nothing will change that. I've tried on 8 different occasions to contact their customer service department. This includes, leaving voicemail, sending email, and posting on their help forums. I have had no replies.

The product would be great if it worked. What I have seen it produce is very high quality and frankly just looks damn good.

Do not buy this if you want any amount of decency or support from the company. I assume not all of these arrive DOA, but this is a chance that you should not have to worry about with a product that costs almost $200.

Once you figure out how it works and get it to work with all of the updates and other downloads required to use it, it's perfectly fine. Took me two or so days to get it up and running, but that's no big deal. I bought it to record video games from my Xbox and PS3, and it does just that perfectly! Xbox can't display at 1080p/1080i with component cables, so obviously the recorder doesn't do well with that. However, PS3 component cables can go up to 1080p, and the thing records in 1080i just fine and it looks really nice! The 720p on Xbox is also very good quality, and I've gotten several compliments on how my videos look.

The biggest problem I have with it is how it records. It saves the files in .ts, which is not compatible with my editing software. It comes with a file transfer program, and it takes about two hours per hour of recorded footage. It can only transfer to 30 frames a second, so Call of Duty or Super Meat Boy (games that run at 60 frames per second) videos aren't as smooth as they could be. That takes a lot of time to do, switching file types, and makes you wonder why they didn't make the box record in a more friendly file type in the first place. Also, I have to put a cloth over the light at night so it doesn't light up my whole room.

I've been using this since October 2010, and have recorded a TON of videos with it. It doesn't get too hot and can record for at least 6 hours (longest I've recorded). Overall this cap card has really nice quality and is easy to use.

When I bought this product I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for. This product is great for capturing gameplays from my Xbox 360 in HD and putting it onto my hard drive.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to have some fun and possibly upload YouTube videos as I do!

If you are interested in a Capture card for recording xbox 360 game play or recording your favorite tv shows, this is for you!. My son records and plays in hd on his xbox 360 then puts them on youtube. He has used many different capture cards and this one seems to be on of his favorites. The software is easy for him to use and was very easy to setup!It is a great price for an hd cap card! Very cool looking and very light. I recommend this to anyone that doesn't want to spend over 300$ on a Capture Card.

The product has a pass through which could be used to record gameplay from a PS3, Xbox 360, or Nintendo Wii, but it has issues with flickering at times. Customer Support insists it has to do with my computer graphics card even though I am not even using my computer at the moment. I guess I will try out the Hauppauge HD PVR.
