If your device requires a specific driver, firmware, and other downloads, you should allow users to download it from your website.
I could not get this to work nearly at all. the Video was flickering with frame drops at 480p without even capturing footage, it was just sitting at a static screen.
Tried this product and after several hours working with tech support they finally told me they do not support their product with any dell computers.

I read every review here before buying, and to be honest, you almost dissuaded me from my purchase. I figured that I would give it a shot. I spoke with Black Magic for a total of a few hours as well. They told me that I would need a 4 drive RAID 0 array to capture uncompressed HD, though I'm getting by just fine with a 3 drive array. Even then, I'm finding myself capturing in compressed anyways because uncompressed 720p from my Xbox 360 takes about 8GB per minute, where compressed is closer to 500MB per minute, and the quality is still rather good, though not as good. Once I got everything set up and configured correctly, it has been making very high quality videos. One gotcha that I found was that if you don't have the 360 configured to output in the exact same way that you have the Black Magic software configured, then you'll just get a black screen, but if it's all set up correctly, you'll be good to go. I'm using a non-supported motherboard in the family of supported ones. I think it supports the GIGABYTE UD5 and I'm using the UD3 with no problems. My biggest advice for people thinking about purchasing this device is to do your homework and make sure that you have the necessary PC hardware before spending the money. Call Black Magic too...they will tell you if your system is not going to work. I'm loving it so far.

Do NOT be dissauded from purchasing this product based on angry reviews. Check to see exactly why each person was unable to get the Intensity Shuttle to work, and see that most of them assumed their hardware would be compatible with the product without doing the appropriate research first. I had relatively little trouble installing the Shuttle and getting it to work, although I will admit setting it up is going to take some technical knowledge and at times will test your patience. However, as long as you follow the installation instructions to the letter and have your system set up to meet or exceed the relatively high requirements, the Intensity Shuttle works like a dream.

First of all, consider the absolute basics. The Intensity Shuttle tells you right on the box that your system MUST connect to the unit using USB 3.0 ports. If you look at your computer's USB ports, they will be BLUE as opposed to black. If your USB ports aren't BLUE, they probably aren't 3.0 ports and will not work with the Shuttle.

Secondly, just because you have USB 3.0 ports doesn't mean the Shuttle will work with your system out of the box. In addition to having the blue 3.0 ports, you will also need to have upgraded them to the latest drivers and firmware versions. You can check to see which drivers and firmware you are running by going to the "Start" menu, then to "Programs", and finding "Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility".

Your computer will NEED to have driver versions no less than, and firmware version no less than 3025. Don't worry if you don't have them yet, as they can be downloaded. This is more than likely the main problem most people encounter when having trouble getting the Intensity Shuttle to work, as they assume the USB 3.

This product was evidently developed on the X58 chipset from 2+ years ago, that had a certain version of USB3 from Renesas/NEC. While it's common to think that later generation chipsets, such as HM76-77, would meet or exceed its requirement, they use another USB controller, with which this is not compatible, to the degree that it just locks up. The only way to find equipment that, (I can only assume), works with this device is to find a used, older generation motherboard, as any new product won't be compatible. Blackmagic will acknowledge this problem yet, won't assign a priority to a corrective update, but continue to offer the product for sale. It seems that they should either release an immediate fix for this, or remove it from the market, as the population of unwarned owners of these useless bricks is growing.

A lot of people have been complaining about this product not working on their computer. A large number of them are from people who don't know how to read. This is a finicky product - as stated clearly in the product's description, it requires USB 3.0 due to the huge bandwidth requirements of HDMI, and a motherboard with the x58 chipset. So all those people trying it on USB 2.0? Idiots.

I suspect that a lot of the other people who are complaining are people who ignored the "warning - read this before installing" insert that came with the product informing you to update the NEC USB 3.0 drivers and where you can update them. This product will not work if your drivers are too old. I can understand why people were having problems with a product geared at those who are technically proficient.

The documentation that comes with the product is very good - well illustrated, in color.

It's way better than those crappy HD-PVR type devices - because it can capture from HDMI, and most importantly, LOSSLESSLY, instead of re-encoding everything on the fly by itself. Those HD-PVR boxes produce horrible encodes; but if you take video captured losslessly from a Design Intensity Shuttle and do a proper encode later with x264, your video will look excellent.

So I give this product a high rating, because despite being very picky on what hardware it works with, if you've got the proper equipment it works well. Right now this is hundreds of dollars cheaper than any other HDMI capture solution on the market.

Before I end this review let me give you the few "cons" I noticed:

-It doesn't support 1080p60. This is what the Xbox 360 and PS3 output when set to 1080p. So you have to set them to 1080i.
