    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!!

    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'll 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.
