If you have an everyday laptop like us, it is most definitely possible to run this device and actually have it work. There is a lot to learn though. My suggestion is that you go on YouTube and watch the how to videos. We also purchased a Yeti microphone for the audio. It's a great microphone, but you have to remember to switch to the device when using the Elgato and that's if you use the commentary option. We found that with our laptop limitations, downloading a program that records audio works better. You record audio using that separate program and when you piece your videos together, use the audio from it and not from the Elgato. Also, if you use the microphone on the laptop, it will sound muffled. I highly suggest getting a headset or a microphone when using it. The sound will be so much better. We also found that pausing the live feed on the laptop makes for a less choppy video. There are lots of great tips like these online. It's a great device though. The editing tool on it is okay. I wouldn't edit using it. There are so many better programs out there to make the video you want to make. It really limits you, but it is a nice place to watch what you've made. I also like the long hdmi/usb cords it came with. We have to stretch it across the room when we make our videos, so the nice long cord really helps us out a lot.
So don't be discouraged if you have an everyday laptop. It will work. Just know that you have to make some adjustments. When you take the time to learn what's working and what's not, your end result is a really nice looking AND nice sounding video. I was very impressed when the pieces all came together. You do have to play around to see what works for you. There are all kinds of settings and this and that to learn. It's worth it though.
-Unable to stream at 60fps using the dedicated software - must use OBS or third party for 60fps streams.
-Passthrough is not a legitimate pasthrough and DOES use some mild image processing which introduces artefacts (this is confirmed by changing device settings with the Elgato software and watching those changes affect the passthrough). I am quite sure the image that is sent via HDMI out is the processed image and does have some strange artefacting and color changes most notable around text. I would not recommend using the passthrough fullt-time as it degrades IQ, just use it when you record. If you must have it hooked up full time I would recommend a splitter for your device to pass a clean signal to your monitor/TV instead of using the HDMI out on the HD60 and use the secondary split as the input for the Elgato.
-Video export takes a long time, even for quick videos.
-Very easy to setup: HDMI in/out and USB - seconds to get it setup
-Software bundled is nice and does a MUCH better job of 1080/60 recording than other 3rd party apps
-Streaming after setup is one-click. Super easy, quality is great, with the exception of being limited to 30fps
-Small form factor for laptop capture - toss it in your bag and your'e good
A quality device with features just robust enough and gets the job done easily. A few "passthrough" quirks that limit permanent hookup in your video chain due to a drop in video quality. Software is straight forward and easy to use with superb quality 1080/60 captures.
Would highly recommend if you don't mind swapping your HDMI for only when you want to record or buying a standalone HDMI splitter. If you plan on hooking it up and keeping it hooked up full time I would avoid it as IQ suffers via the Passthrough.

First the initial setup:
The HD60 is pretty simple to setup upon arrival. You simply disconnect the HDMI coming out your console from the end going into the TV, plug the TV end into the IN port on the HD60, then plug the supplied HDMI into the OUT port then the other end into the TV.
After this you plug the USB cable into the Elgato and then into your computer.
Thats all the hardware setup, from here you just need to setup the software side of things which Is relatively simple. All you need to do is go to Elgato's website and download the 'Game Capture HD' software that will allow you to get the signal up on your computer.
PS4 USERS: (If you get no signal you need to go to your PS4 settings > system then untick 'Enable HDCP'
Overall the setup is pretty straightforward and the Elgato has a light bar that will flash to tell you if something isn't setup right, nice and simple.
For those who don't want to use the Elgato software to stream/record, you can also download free programs such as xSplit or OBS. You can go to input sources and the Elgato should show up there.
The Elgato captures great quality video without any issue.
Its very easy to setup.
The Elgato software allows you to stream + record straight from the software.
If you use other streaming/recording programs the Elgato video signal can easily be picked up by these programs.
The Elgato software also has a time machine like feature, meaning if you have the software open, even if your not recording, you can go back and watch footage that the Elgato has picked up, the software effectively records everything and then if you don't actually hit record/go back and save what its recorded, it deletes it.
Can be pricey, there are other options out there, however in my opinion the Elgato is still the best screen capture device.
If your using PS4, you must disable HDCP when you use the Elgato, this means some programs won't be allowed to run, I believe that includes ones like Netflix, so if you use your PS4 as a media centre also, you may need to keep changing settings and changing what cables are plugged in as with HDCP enabled you may not get any signal through to your TV.
There's a slight delay between when you make & see an input on the TV, and when it appears on the computer, meaning you still need to use the TV to play the games without the delay,
This is a great peace of kit and a good investment for anyone looking to start up streaming or a YouTube channel, its probably one of the easiest ways your going to be able to get a good quality HD image from the console onto a computer that you can then record/stream on.
Plus, it doesn't capture properly at high frame rates on older hardware (by that I mean a 5 year old intel core 2 duo desktop with 8 gb of ram, with a 1gb Radeon video card, so not a complete slug yet!!) It crashes his Windows 8.1 Netbook on anything over 720p.
It is laggy and skippy, at high frame rates, which is perplexing as I thought the whole point of these cards was that they did the rendering on the onboard processor without relying overly on the external hardware of the PC. How much does it rely on stealing processor cycles from the PC?? When I get time I'm going to benchmark it against a wholly software capture solution, and see how it fares. I suspect a well written piece of software installed directly on a PC would obviate the need for this piece of kit with a fast modern PC, especially if it was written for the CPU and GPU combined. Stay tuned!
Youtube is your best friend if you buy this little guy.
Once you have everything set to how you want it set. Each time you wish to record or stream, it's super simple to get that going. I do have occasional issues with streaming, where the quality is really bad and skipping. Still trying a fix for that. But recording and uploading is amazing quality.
Despite the trouble it is to set it up, I would still recommend, I however hope it's none of my friends because I refuse to help set it up again haha
