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 2.0.4.0, 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.

I just finished building a system for video editing. Here is the break down
i7 2600k (overclocked to 4ghz)
16gb DDR3160000
4 5400 RPM 2tb Hitachi drives (red write speeds over 550mbps)
dual gtx 560 graphics cards
CS5.5 masters collection
Gygabyte z68 motherboard

According to their website my hardware falls under the "or better" category because i bought the latest versions of the suggested products.
I went through their instructions multiple times making sure i had the latest firmware for my USB 3.0 and all other
After going through multiple rounds of technical support taking me outside of my return window for this product I ended up with this information about my motherboard
"For now we are going to say they are not supported." Now I am left with this $200 piece of hardware that the seller will not take back, the manufacturer has left me with unsupported hardware and no solutions. I was going to go ahead and buy a PCI-E USB 3.0 card to use with this but the ones suggest by the manufacturer are either discontinued or as far as i can find no longer for sale. Their list of compatable hardware, however, has not been updated since the release of the product.

I read a lot of reviews for this product that seemed like relatively technically unskilled users having problems with hardware not being up to par. Well I have 4 years of video editing experience and before that 5 years of computer support and repair. I can tell you for a fact that this product has poor compatibility and unless you buy the exact hardware listed on their website and ignore the fact that this is now 2 generations old, you WILL NOT be able to get this to work.

Please, I beg of you. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Buy the Matrox or the Motu box.
