What customers say about "Key Specs"
AVerMedia Live Gamer Extreme (LGX) USB 3.0 Game capture card
  • The recording from both PC and consoles are very high quality and you can select different formats and resolutions depending on what balance you want of quality and file size.
  • I highly recommend it to those who need to export video at a high resolution. It has a simple to use software platform.
  • Has HDMI in/out, Speaker and mic in, component in (through a breakaway cable), PS3 to proprietary input. Everything you need for the perfect streamer.
  • Records at 60FPS at 1080P resolution with the addition of also being able to record the audio at 256kbps
  • It doesn't seem to work with dual screen setup if the two screen has different resolution.
Elgato HD60 Game Capture
  • The Elgato captures great quality video without any issue. Its very easy to setup.
  • Highly distinctive product as the contour of the Elgato HD is smooth and shaped like a pill. Used for gaming my 'not to be mention' games and the resolution is fantastic!
  • Very high resolution video capture card that works with almost everything.
  • The editing software and interface works really well for what you pay. I really would recommend this product.
  • 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.

What customers say about "Features"
AVerMedia Live Gamer Extreme (LGX) USB 3.0 Game capture card
  • Almost no lag when recording via Re Central. You are able to play fairly well using the preview screen.
  • Works well with OBS once you get resolution issues resolved. It doesn't pick up a lot of different resolutions that I have tried it with but eventually I could get it working.
  • Very little latency overall - pretty rare to see with as small as this is and not being an internal card.
  • It has a simple to use software platform, only issue may have is that this device can only be used for USB 3.0 ports and your USB hub needs to be up to date for this to work.
  • The software takes enough resources by itself without trying to stream to a website, which is why I usually leave it up to a program designed for that, like OBS.
Elgato HD60 Game Capture
  • The Elgato software allows you to stream straight from the software. If you use other streaming 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.
  • I have tried it on my PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U and all look superb with a decent contrast and sound quality when recording.
  • If your using PS4, you must disable HDCP when you use the Elgato, this means some programs won't be allowed to run.
  • I'm a mac user and Twitch streamer. Although the card works well and the software is fine, it is not compatible with OBS or Xsplit on a Mac.
