Pros

Cons

  • 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.TechShopper

    elgato HD60S - This capture card is about as easy as it gets to use. Literally plug and play. Perfect for stream capturing mobile devices, gaming consoles, or anything that puts out hdmi. Requires USB 3.0 to work, works with software like OBS/XSplit. It offers real time audio output, which I needed for streaming from my iPhone X (done with an lightning to hdmi adapter). I also have the HD60 PRO internal capture card, for my specific use of mobile streaming, it did not offer real time audio, the 60S does.

    Great capture card - I got it to stream Switch games from my Macbook Pro. Fair warning - This will work right out of the box with a mac (provided you're running a compatible model) - but it is very limited compared to what you can do on Windows. I managed to get it running using Windows 10 partitioned on my computer - which allows you to do much more than the somewhat limited capture software that it comes with. It also only can be used with consoles that use HDMI. Anything older that uses component cables is not compatible.

    I purchased the external capture card to start streaming from my XBOX One X. The card works very well, but set up isn't completely hassle free. The card has worked very well with only a few minor issues since installation. Most of these have been due to OBS software updates and also an HDCP issue from my XBOX to the Elgato (even though it shouldn't have been an issue). I would recommend purchasing the internal card and move your computer closer to your console if you're going to stream.

    No Mic Audio to Stream

    So after getting the needed chat cable that doesn't come along with the Elgato...(extra $10 on Amazon) my voice is heard from people in my party, but voice does not go through Stream.. even though the party can be heard... Super weird, but doesn't properly work! I'm using PS4 with wired headset to a controller, and a custom PC. Elgato says the only way around this ridiculousness is to invest in a desktop mic... (Blue Yeti - another $120)... So beware of extra 'costs' to get this working correctly....

    I have an internal version of this brand in my PC but I like this version much better. Although the internal version might have better performence but this one is far more convinient. I don't need very long cable to hook my camera any more. And this one works on Mac too which is very useful if you have a IMac because whit this guy, you IMac could be used as a external monitor! Installation was easy, just plug into the USB port and install the driver and software, you are good to go.

    This is a decent option if you don't want to use your console to do it. There are many others from Elgato but this is a good capable unit. With that being said you need to ensure that your PC can handle it. The software is easy to use. To do it right however will cost more to have proper production. Camera, microphone, lighting, green screen are not necessary but to stream and be successful you will want those things.

    Well made capture card

    This elgato hd60s is a well made game capture device. I use it for capturing my gameplay from my PS4 to my pc so that I am able to stream my gameplay. Streamlabs obs sometimes has an issue recognizing the capture card but there is a built in feature with overlays on the hd60s so you can directly stream without needing streamlabs. The size of the unit is comparable to a cell phone and it has a hdmi input and output, along with a jack to run a usb to the computer. All necessary cords came with the game capture card

    The purchase from Best Buy was easy and flawless. They even price matched a lower price from amazon. It truly was a breeze. However, for those of you looking to stream, I'd recommend using something else. The elgato only works with elgato software, so you're limited with how much you can really do while streaming. Works great as a capture card, and still does a decent job with its streaming software.

    This capture device does an incredible job of capturing high-quality video, however there is a down side. Make sure you have a very good computer. I use it with my laptop that has an Intel i7 processor with 8 GB of RAM. It is able to handle the capture of 720p video, but it takes a couple of minutes to render it. The sound works with an adaptor I had to buy from Amazon, but it doesn't work with my headset. I have to use an external microphone.

    Next step for streaming

    The Elgato will make a huge difference in your stream quality. If you normally stream through your console and use the twitch/mixer app on console to stream, you will need to download a streaming software on your PC to live feed your capture card to your desired streaming platform. You can also use it as a recorder to just capture your gameplay at 1080p so you can edit your footage easily. Definitely worth the upgrade.

    Poor Mac Support

    I bought this to capture an LCD monitor from a pinball machine, using Open Broadcast Studio on a Mac. Please be aware: you cannot do this. The Elgato does “technically” work with the Mac, but only when you use their own software instead of OBS. Their own software will not let you resize the video feed and forces it to be full screen. I took it back and got the Avermedia which worked immediately without a single issue.

    I wanted to love the Elgato gaming capture but it was so hard to setup and such bad quality. I figured out that Nvida Geforce Experience can capture my 1440p resolution monitor for FREE at 60fps with Flashback recording and everything! I decided to return it but i will continue to shop at this Lynwood BestBuy store because Ed is so helpful and nice. Ive been going to this one in particular for the past years all because of how amazing Ed is!

    I bought this capture device for a few different reasons. I wanted to be able to stream Xbox One, PS4, and Switch gameplay while using a green screen and higher quality mic. I also wanted to convert some old mini-DV and VHS-C tapes to digital so that I could preserve the memories. A friend gave me their RCA to HDMI adapter and I was able to use that to capture video.

    This has been working really well. Been recording gameplay videos for a couple weeks straight. I don't like that you have to plug it into something to use your device though. Sometimes I don't have my laptop nearby the xbox. Also, the Elgato software doesn't work that well. Usually use OBS instead. The live capture feature is cool, but doesn't work well, at least when I tried. Still a very slight delay from your gameplay to the computer. Even with the USB 3.0

    I purchased this product for my daughter about a month ago. She has yet to use it. I guess I should have asked more question b4 my purchase. It does not wrk with her computer. I place to visit the store when time allows and find out what the problem is. As far as the product I guess it works and seems to b good quality.

    I purchased this so I could hook up my Panasonic GH5 as my streaming camera instead of using a standard webcam. After downloading the streaming software it was as simple as plugging in the camera via HDMI and I was up and running. The software is pretty decent but I preferred OBS instead - it's tricky to get this to work with OBS on a Mac but there are some good YouTube tutorials out there on how to do it.

    This device is amazing for screen capture and can even allow you to stream while you play with the program it comes with. The biggest issue it has is that it is a pain in the butt to set up on any system except Windows 10 without digging around for an older software update. The quality you get from it once you actually have installed it however is EXCELLENT.

    Too bad it doesn’t have Mac OS drivers compatible with OBS. Would be nice if el gato/Corsair company would actually create drivers for Mac OS & OBS usage. Mac users in order to have game audio you have to stream off the el gato software. It gets the job done the only downside with the software is if you have custom overlays you have to manually add them.

    First time steamer. Does the trick. Though, I am on a Mac and it’s kind of booty considering you can’t use it on OBS and the game capture software for elgato itself is super booty and has close to zero customization. Only works well with good internet connection but that’s given for any capture card. Overall, a pretty solid product. Definitely would recommend. Windows users would probably love it more.
