Elgato 4K60 Pro 4K 60 HDR10 Capture Card
  • The Elgato software which supports any product of 1080p60 output resolution paired with this card is fabulous.
  • Can record PS4 pro at 4K easily.
  • I was happy with my picture and it works as advertised.
  • The software has very limited option in terms of resolution and frame rate and has had bugs for me since the start.
  • The Elgato 4k software (which you are required to use) is miles behind the 1080p version, in features and stability.

  • Easy to install. Played nice with all existing capture software I had.
  • The RECentral software even has some pretty neat features.
  • The Live Gamer 4K came well packaged, and included the HDMI 2.0 cable that I needed.
