What customers say about "Key Specs"
AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 (LGP 2) YouTube & Twitch - Plug and play, Capture Card, Switch gameplay in 1080p60
  • Fantastic and simple. No capture card, no PC, it just sits between your console and your TV like a digital recorder and records 1080p 60fps with really good quality.
  • This is the third AVermedia game recorder I have owned and I've been happy with all of them.
  • Full HD at 60fps looks really amazing. Great product and really easy to use.
  • This capture card is very good for the price. I would suggest this capture card for people who are just starting out on trying to capture gameplay for any HDMI devices.
  • There have been a few odd connection issue's I question whether it is the device I am using or whether it is the HDMI wire or something else.
Elgato HD60 S Game Capture Card
  • It records at one resolution setting of your choice while the HD60 can steam at one resolution while recording at another.
  • If you need to capture smooth, high-resolution video from an HDMI source, this little box does the trick.
  • The software seems very full featured and has lots of options to change resolution and recording quality.
  • The picture comes out really crisp as long as you have it set to 1080p of course. Though you can set it to 720p if your computer can't handle the higher resolution.
  • After a month of use, It began to see an HDMI cable with changeable success.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 (LGP 2) YouTube & Twitch - Plug and play, Capture Card, Switch gameplay in 1080p60
  • Small and compact capture card. I brought this to capture PSVR recording (pc free) took a while to figure how to set up.
  • The product itself is great, the size of it and also it weighs nothing.
  • I like the compact size and the PC-free capturing ability is a nice bonus.
  • The product is sleek, small and very easy to start using.
  • Very easy to use, light in weight, and comes with all the cables you need.
Elgato HD60 S Game Capture Card
  • It's small, probably as big as the game capture HD.
  • It is small, simple and works. Great capture quality and almost no lag too.
  • This thing is so small for what it achieves that it’s truly jarring all things considered. I see now why this product is still widely viewed as the absolute standard for quality in its field.
  • It is compact and lightweight. You can easily take it with you and go to friends.
  • My only real complaint is the unit itself is very light. The natural curl of the htmi cables are strong enough to move it around.

What customers say about "Features"
AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 (LGP 2) YouTube & Twitch - Plug and play, Capture Card, Switch gameplay in 1080p60
  • Video footage can be lifted to your PC without removing the memory card: just connect the LGP2 to your PC and push the switch all the way to the right, your pc will access it directly.
  • Outputs MOV h.264 files, not bad, and can be easily converted or edited with other software.
  • It worked perfectly using the RECentral software. I love the quality of the records, full HD.
  • Very easy plug and play once you've downloaded the RECentral software, which is great in itself.
  • I've used this to record WiiU, Xbox 360 and Xbox One without issue & The quality is superb.
Elgato HD60 S Game Capture Card
  • The main difference between the HD60 and HD60 S is that the S has the lowest delay between the game on your TV and the preview on your computer.
  • The picture and audio quality is superb, it’s very compatible with other streaming software, and there’s absolutely no input lag whatsoever in the pass through.
  • Higher Bitrate than most other Capture Cards on the market.
  • Tonight the PC failed to even recognize it despite the units lights coming on, switching USB cables and ports, restarts etc. I'm done with ElGato, clearly its crap hardware.
  • Another thing that sucks is this device doesn’t work with PS3 unless you do some workarounds.
