What customers say about "Key Specs"
Razer Ripsaw HD Capture Card for Streaming
  • The Razer Ripsaw HD works well.
  • It records 60fps at1080p easily.
  • This works perfectly recording 1080p at 60fps.
  • The video is smooth and nice for streaming and YouTube content creators.
  • I have been unable to stream at 1080p without the picture freezing after just a couple of minutes.
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"
Razer Ripsaw HD Capture Card for Streaming
  • It is actually a similar size to the PSVR box.
  • It actually looks nice with the PS4 and fits well.
  • Setting up is quite easy. Amazing size.
  • Looks great on my desk. Quite compact size.
  • The compact size was perfect for my desk.
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"
Razer Ripsaw HD Capture Card for Streaming
  • Download and install the free OBS software which is excellent and gives you options to capture and save to a file or to stream.
  • It comes with a HDMI cable included, a braided 3.5 male to male headphone jack and braided USB type C to USB 3.0, so that is a good thing to see for the price.
  • Picture and sound quality is as amazing as what I've recorded.
  • Out of the box though it looks great.
  • The passthrough is fine.
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.
