Does What It Does, and Does It Well
on January 11, 2014
What can you really say about Roxio? It's cheap, easy to use, and just works. Yeah, you can't record HDMI from a PS3, but that's not the fault of the capture card, that's something Sony has put in place on their HDMI signal. The only thing I can think of that is negative is the Roxio video editing software isn't as good as something like Adobe Premier or Sony Vegas, but for what you pay, the software does a good job at video rendering to be sent to a better program for proper intros and endcards for YouTube videos.
In short, it does what's advertised, it does it well, with no problems. I have no complaints and compared to other products, Roxio did well with this one.
-Simple To Set Up and Use
-Does What It Says It Does, and Does So Well
-Record and Upload later or Livesteam, which is a nice feature (so long as your internet is fast)
-Video Software isn't a full editor like Premier, After Effects, or Vegas, but that's okay because it doesn't need it really
-Cheap-Feeling Build (it's mostly plastic, but again, it's cheap and works, and hasn't broken)
-Records Best as 720p (not a huge deal for me, but I could see how others would prefer 1080p)
-Video Filenaming always reverts back to current date instead of last name used (its a bit annoying, but not bad)
If you like to capture gameplay video and not want to spend a lot, the Roxio will get the job done and do the job well. I definitely recommend it.
