    Excellent way to record gameplay on a Mac

    Elgato/Corsair's HD60 S works wonderfully to capture and stream online 1080p60 content over HDMI from the current generation of video game consoles. Because it's an externally-connected USB device, it works perfectly with Macintosh and Windows PCs alike. The Game Capture HD software is easy to use and understand, but note that the Mac version of the software lacks parity with the Windows version. There's always BootCamp, right Mac friends? One last tidbit - although you can capture content from any HDMI source, be sure you understand what HDCP is before purchasing. Some consoles allow you to turn off HDCP via a settings screen, while other consoles force HDCP without a way to turn it off.

    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.

    This capture card is easy to use and works as promised. Easily captured gameplay on my Xbox one. The editing software included works well and in no time I was making high quality videos to stream and share. I would recommend this and the brand is well known for ease of use and quality. The unit is small which makes portability easy. One small issue I am trying to resolve is a small square in the bottom right hand corner of all my videos. It is probably user error that I just need to figure out. Other than that, it works well and as promised.

    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.

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    I thought I could trick the system and use my PS4 camera to stream to twitch then from twitch I would screen record my gameplay. Then from there edit it and upload it to YouTube....yaaa I was wrong! The footage came out so tiny lol so having this thing really helps in accomplishing my goal to become a streamer and YouTuber!

    This is pretty self explanatory if you are buying this. You want to take a step into streaming and want to capture at the same time. Elgato does just that. Their software is very user friendly and take a minute to learn. From that point on, their hardware as well as wires needed are all included. The pictures for set up is very easy that even a child can do it.

    Moved to this from a Roxio Game Capture Hd Pro, and my oh my was it an improvement. It's so much easier to set up, and it just works! The Roxio would sometimes need to be reset or I may even have to restart my computer to make it work. Not so with the HD60S It works well, and the added bonus that I can play my games even from the window capture screen (with the quick response capture) is just icing on the cake.

    For those who don't like to screw around too much with capture card PC installation, as well as messing with video streaming software, this is the buy for you! Incredibly easy to setup! The playback slider that lets you choose resolution size for your viewers....awesome! Overall, everything you need is here in order to start streaming from the get-go (software is free on elgato website). This is an easy 5 star product!

    I first bought the hd 60 and it worked easily but there was a large latency between you playing and recording so it was hard to stream while the hd 60s is great no latency at all the only problem people can run into because if you have anything lower than a Windows 10 computer your computer will probably crash or not read the software whatsoever even if your computer is high powered but all around great purchase!

    Depending on your configuration, this is a must have for twitch streamers. If you are looking to stream your ps4, xbox, or any other hdmi console (switch) then this is what you're looking for. It comes with a usb3 output to the PC. Just be sure your pc is at least an i5 or it won't be able to handle the encoding without stalling out.

    Awesome device! I use it to stream Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch with my friends, I also record clips for Twitter and things like that. Editing software is basic, allows you to trim what you’ve recorded but not much else. Still a 5 out of 5 for me because I didn’t expect it to come with editing software anyways.

    This device works as expected if you are streaming off of a PlayStation 4 there's a little bit more that goes with it as far as being able to hook it up no fault of Elgato but that of PlayStation I'm extremely happy with my purchase note to reader I have not used the capture software that comes with the card

    Elgato HD60s is by far the best external game capture device out there!! It captures anything that can output to HDMI. Works amazing with OBS streaming, or you can use elgatos software to capture the video on PC. Must by for any streamer or video maker!
