Truly Amazing HD recorder
I love this product and the capture software. It has got a cool design and records brilliant . quality gameplay
Ease of use
Value for money
Easy gameplay capture
Great quality and great for recording my Xbox One gameplay (I guess it's the same for the Xbox360, PS3 and PS4). Set up was easy enough too.
What's good is that you can connect a microphone and it will record both game audio and commentary together but you can also add a webcam too, which means you can have a screen in screen set up of you playing the game too.
The quality of the video is great. It's 1080p and so it's all I need for my channel.
