What customers say about "Key Specs"
Razer Ripsaw Capturecard
  • It hooks up quickly with hdmi cables and has GREAT quality.
  • Quality is great and doesn't stutter like the other brand. Would recommend to anyone serious about streaming.
  • I can swap the HDMI out from one console to another while Live and without even disabling the capture card first.
  • The Razer Ripsaw was great at recording desktop gameplay without any frame drops.
  • This item is advertised to be functional with OBS. It does not deliver audio through the HDMI input to OBS rendering the thing almost useless.
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 Capturecard
  • It's small and lightweight, easy to move around a desktop or find a place for in small areas.
  • Light, small, great quality, very easy to use, recommended for everyone who cares about portability.
  • It is small & portable, which makes it easy to handle when you have your gaming set up in a small room.
  • One thing i really like is how small this unit is. Handy to take with to friends when gaming and want to stream with others what is happening.
  • Feels nice in hand, looks great in use, nothing feels cheap or flimsy. Size is great, easily fits in my pocket.
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 Capturecard
  • I've had no issues with drivers or anything and instructions were easy. Set up was a breeze (and I'm not great with setting things up!).
  • Very easy to unpack and set up. Packaging was quite nice and comes with all the cords you might need.
  • Software installation went smoothly on my system and was able to start streaming off the playstation in no time at all.
  • The razer ripjaw is just about the same size as the elgato, but one thing I like about this model is that the cables are all on one side so you dont have to have it jumbled into the back of your workstation, it just makes it easier to cable manage.
  • This works with my Windows 10 perfectly, no complaints, I really like to play and stream using it.
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.
