Style Name: Game Capture HD
Length: 9:30 Mins
► PLEASE NOTE: This review was originally done back in July 2012 (same goes for the video). Elgato have over the years been improving upon improving the software's features and usability even more than what was originally a top game capturing software.

There are now two device options to choose from:
1) Elgato Game Capture HD: The first model which is what my review is based on. This model supports devices via its HDMI & A/V inputs. This one is more suited for the last generation of consoles and prior such as the PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360. You can only record up to 30fps with this device.

2) Elgato Game Capture HD60 Featuring just HDMI inputs, this is made for the newer generation of consoles such as the PlayStation 4 & Xbox One... Well basically anything that supports HDMI. This newer version can also record up to 1080p 60fps!

Below you will find my original review for the Elgato Game Capture HD, followed by any updates I've made thereafter. It's a long review, however I hope it will help you make the right decision based on your needs.

♦ Introduction ♦

When it comes to capturing gameplay from your consoles, you want as good quality as you can get so you can show your friends or the world those amazing moments in detail.

The problem is there are so many different game captures to choose from these days such as Roxio, AverMedia, Hauppauge +more, that it can be a daunting task to choose the right one.

The set up is the easiest thing in the world. The editing software is smooth and simple.

Pros:
- Great Quality
- Small in size
- Easy set up
- Comes with HDMI cable
- Can record last 5 minutes if you forgot to press record
- Can record commentary along with footage
- Can live stream

Cons:
- If you really are into editing videos, you will need your own editing software. The software that comes with this only has a few features. You can split clips, rename clips, screenshot clips, and that's basically it. You can't even make clips into a montage.
- The commentary is a great feature. But you can't edit your voice once it's recorded. So if you farted or sneeze and wanted to cut that out, it will be stuck there.

Style Name: Game Capture HD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Hello gamers if you're reading this review you most likely want to capture game content and upload your footage to YouTube well I hope you find this review useful. I'm going to be comparing the Elgato Game Capture HD to the Hauppauge HD PVR and the Elgato Eye TV. And my goal is to give you direction as to which one you should buy based on my experience as a regular uploader of gaming footage to YouTube.

The straight dope: IF YOU JUST WANT TO RECORD GAMEPLAY BUY THIS OVER A PVR IT IS THE PERFECT DEVICE.

Here is Drift0rs how to live stream video on YouTube: dTsBQeoy-nA

This short and sweet review of this device is: Buy this over the Happauge HD-PVR or Eye TV I feel it's just a superior unit for capturing gameplay no extra pieces of equipment are required like with the other products that I mentioned. It's compact and just simply passes your signal directly to your TV and allows you to capture all your gameplay and just jump back simply if you need to grab a clip. I feel that Elgato has been paying attention the gaming community on YouTube and is bought out one of the better products for us to use. The price at the time of this review is $190 about on par with HD PVR's you might be considering and this works seamlessly with Mac and PC as the software is provided for both so to me it's a no-brainer.

Another very cool feature is that it does HDMI recording on the Xbox on the PS3 you need to use a special cable they provide. But I'll discuss that more below.

My only complaint (and it's not really a complaint) is that it doesn't capture 1080p and only 1080i.

Style Name: Game Capture HD60 Verified Purchase
Concatenated version:
It's awesome, records 1080p over HDMI at flawless framerates as well as high bitrate, manages source resolution changes in the middle of recording surprisingly well, good audio that's properly synchronized, and doesn't need any excessive cables to operate (low-profile). This is a very good product that is perfect for people who want to record gameplay or any HDMI device that doesn't have HDCP encryption (until Elgato decides to include an HDMI splitter in the recording device or the user has their own). It earns 5-stars as a recording/livestreaming device, not video editing software.

A lot more details:
The image quality is like the source (check included pic) and he recording bitrate is quite high relative to YouTube's recommendations. YouTube's recommended bitrates for 60 FPS are on the left and my recording results are on the right, also at 60 FPS.
360p: YT~1.5 Mbps | HD60~N/A
480p: YT~4 Mbps | HD60~11 Mbps
720p: YT~7.5 Mbps | HD60~20 Mbps
1080p: YT~12 Mbps | HD60~40 Mbps
1440p: YT~24 Mbps | HD60~N/A
2160p: YT~53-68 Mbps | HD60~N/A
You may need some more hard disk space if you decide to record in a higher bitrates/resolutions. Cool thing is that the bitrate is high enough that it would be worthwhile to upsample the video to a higher resolution if you're using YouTube to allow the video player to output the higher bitrate to improve video quality.
It should be mentioned that you can record interlaced (I tried 1080i), but only at 30 FPS. It is strongly apparent that the HD60 automatically deinterlaces the video (based off of the output video properties which was set to export at MP4). Major pluses for that.
