What customers say about "Features"
AVerMedia Live Gamer HD
  • I love this thing. Easy to install and set-up, took lees then 20 minutes to open box, open PC slot in and install the software.
  • I very much like the hot button, it's no small task to find an keyboard key you never use in anything you do, but with the hot button you don't need to work out.
  • I definitely recommend this capture card to anyone looking for something that doesn't take up any extra place and/or offer little to no latency.
  • The card was easy to place into my tower, and it works like a charm!
  • I have been using it with XSplit and any minor issue that has arose, has been solved with a simple source refresh.
Elgato HD60 Pro Game Capture Card
  • Sufficiently low delay to be able to play games through the capture stream rather than needing a second display. We have used it for clear capture from ps4, wiiu, switch, mini nes with no problems.
  • I use this to capture my Original Xbox One and my Nintendo Switch, which is does perfectly with minimal latency, less than 5 frames by my estimates.
  • The free software that comes with the Elgato HD60 Pro is perfect and makes streaming simple as all sound is directly transferred over!
  • Recording is instant, when pressing the record button, it records instantly without delay (unlike the Avermedia HD2).
  • Very difficult to install and get working without getting the message (no device found error).
