      Drops Frames and Kills CPU

      I went into this capture card already hearing bad things and initially when I used the card, seemed fine. I would like to say the instant game view is awesome but it's not worth it unless your computer is beyond an i7 quad-core processor. I have an i7 quad-core 2.9 ghz, 16gb of ram, and a Radeon Pro 460 4gb but this pushes my CPU to over 110%. The problem here is that the capture card itself has no encoder built in. This is HUGE DESIGN FLAW of the device. Elgato needs to fix the system requirements because all the specs that supposedly works is false. I will say that the software is easy to use and understand. Streaming to Twitch is a breeze and they make the best of signing in to your account and hit the live button, I do hate that the game tag is always set to Pac-Man on default. Elgato, this has no encoder built-in. Put one in it! Also, this capture card needs a CPU higher than a quad-core i7!! Be warned and find another capture card with and encoder built-in!! As for me? I'll go to Avermedia and use theirs as they have a built-in encoder.

      Not really impressed but I’m not a 15yo

      Basically it’s the previous model except you can live stream. When you shut your computer off there is no signal pass through when the elgato is not powered so you have to disconnect it from your Xbox if you want to use your Xbox for Netflix or anything else that is viewable on your tv. Seems like more effort than necessary for people who don’t have a dedicated set up. Not sure if other manufacturers have a workaround in box for that I didn’t compare and it’s not even mentioned it was a “oh that’s inconvenient” found moment after already setting it up and using it. It does pick up game audio but not from the actual user, you need a separate microphone even if you already have a game mic/headset that plugs into your controller...why? lol Read the box. The system requirements really are the minimum system requirements. They are not suggestions. You need a quad core. Once you meet or exceed all the requirements it works as it should. Usb3.0 ports are usually blue btw.

      2 HDMI cbls needed, can't capture specific window

      As much as I wanted this to work, I was having some difficulties. I'm going to return the product because it did not unfortunately work for me. There is an HDMI in and out on this product. The IN connects to your computer while the OUT connects to your monitor. That means you'll be needing an extra HMDI cable since it only comes with one. With the Elgato you are only able to capture what's on your monitor. When plugged in to the computer the Elgato is recognized as a "display". That means if you have 2 monitors it will pop up as a third monitor. This ALSO means that you have to duplicate your default monitor (the one where you're playing games on) to the Elgato (3rd monitor in this case). Because you're doing this, it shows everything that is on your screen. If I get a message in my steam overlay, then my stream will see it. If there was a way SOMEHOW that I could capture a specfic window (like game capture in OBS) this would help a ton.

      Nintendo Switch + Mac

      While I may utilize the capture and streaming capabilities this product was designed for in the future, I actually bought the HD60S because it allows me to connect my Nintendo Switch to my iMac display. On one hand it's a pricey solution for these purposes, but I don't have a TV that I'd connect the console to, and I'm not going to buy one, so it evens out. Other than a couple restarts of the Game Capture HD software due to the audio cutting out, everything's been working great. I think you need a pretty fast processor for optimal performance (I have a i7 4.2 7700K cpu). I stream full 1080p @60fps, with no perceptible lag from the wireless controllers. Everything looks great and runs smooth.

      Misinformed and misleading!!

      After watching and reading many videos and reviews my son wanted this as a gift to make Youtube videos. After traveling 90 miles to Best Buy and speaking with two sales associates regarding the Elgato I was told it was the best and all I had to do was "just hook it up and go". Hook up was simple, however, I was not told all of the complex requirements that my computer had to have to even run the stupid thing! The computer is only 4 years old and "not compatible for Elgato". I called Elgato and they basically laughed about it!! I was on the phone twice with Best Buy and was disconnected both times!! Very disappointed that Best Buy did not disclose that the computer had to be Windows 10, 4th generation quad-core i5 CPU, GTX 600 series graphics and so on compatible as well as very disappointed in Elgato that they would require so much! My son is recording Xbox videos not producing an award winning film!!! Again, HIGHLY disappointed with Best Buy and Elgato!! If you have a high price and brand new computer it might work great but I guess we will never know!! Returning right away!!

      Records with great quality with a few drawbacks

      The Elgato HD60 S is great for recording gameplay! If you want to record anything else, though things start to get complicated. I had a project for class where I needed movie clips, and I wanted them at a super high quality, so I planned on using the Elgato to get the clips. The Elgato would not let me record the video because of how it was encrypted; HDCP. HDCP encryption will come from Blu Ray players, XBox Ones, Play Staytions (you can turn it off on Play Staytions), and even a cable box, and will only occur when something is copyrighted like a movie. Ignoring my issues with HDCP, the Elgato records at a great framerate, and the audio is also spot on.

      Awesome portable capture device

      Okay, so first of all I am new to this game capture area. I bought the elgato hd 60 s based on features and reviews. Honestly its been awesome so far, the streaming, commentary and game capture is awesome, the only downside is the setup because their instructions are not the best, and also the settings on the software should have instructions for lets say xbox one , ps4, and such. Remember to buy the chat link cables on amazon, it doesn't come in the package so you have to buy it yourself to record game chat. I think thats a downer because the hd60 has it included but the 60 z doesn't. Overall its great for beginners , the software lets you customize the recorded videos as well. Also you have to really play with the balance between the volume of game chat, and game sound, lots of trial and error.

      Best USB Capture Card

      I've been looking for a capture device that would allow me to use its preview window as an actual screen to play off of with little to no lag. Effectively I could plug this into my MS Surface and it would become a gorgeous 1080p portable screen for whatever system I wanted to plug an HDMI into. I'm happy to report that while there might be 1 frame or so of lag, games are completely playable in the preview window and no worse than if your TV didn't have a game mode. You can make the preview window in the game capture software full screen or use it windows while you multitask doing other things. As for capture and stream performance, it works like a charm and I've not run into a single issue. I can't recommend this capture kit enough. Elgato has made an amazing tool.
