Review by Susan on 16th January, 2013
5 stars "Awesome!!"

Just got mine today and I've already uploaded some great Black Ops 2 moments to Facebook and YouTube. The video quality is amazing and it records peoples voices when they rage at you :) It's so easy to set up and use as well. Highly recommended!!

5 stars "GREAT!"

one of the first recorders to use hdmi on both input and out put making less mess for cords, also it doesn't need a power supply, just usb, and thanks to the latest update you can record old game consoles like the ps2 and xbox. overall this is the best on the market 10/10

5 stars "The Best Game Capture you can buy."

I believe this is the best Game Capture Device on the market, Records and Renders at 60 frames/sec. Very good price from Mighty Ape, Delivery and after Sales service EXCELLENT.

5 stars "Better the FRAPS anyday."

Up until now I've been using FRAPS for my gaming PC recordings. Since I received the Elgato Game Capture HD I've literally deleted FRAPS from my PC. No more low FPS or inferior quality recordings. This thing captures 1080p full HD with no noticeable system lag. Highly recommend for any serious gamers.

Elgato Game Capture HD enables you to record PlayStation or Xbox gameplay to a Mac or PC and share it with your friends and fans. With advanced hardware H.264 encoding, you can capture in stunning HD quality, while keeping the file size low.

The gameplay is passed through to the TV via HDMI – without delay. Elgato Game Capture HD can record your gameplay although HDCP (content protection) can block recording from HDMI on a PS3 (and possibly other HDMI devices) so you might need component cables to connect that console to Elgato – the HDMI out will work just fine though, here's a link to a Universal Component Cable in case you need one.

We've done some awesome 1080P recording on the Xbox 360 and a Gaming PC and this worked incredibly well, the included software is both functional and easy to use.

Just download the software and drivers during installation and it's easy to capture every move you make, even if you forget to press the record button: The unique Flashback Recording feature lets you timeshift your gameplay, so that you can simply slide back in time on your Mac or PC and hit the record button retroactively. Crazy cool!

With one click, you can share your gameplay with your friends and fans on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Even better, the tailor-made Elgato Game Capture HD software allows you to quickly trim your gaming scenes and pass them on to your favorite editing software.

  • Record your Xbox or PlayStation gameplay to a Mac or PC
  • Built-in live streaming to YouTube and Twitch
  • Flashback Recording feature to record retroactively
  • Immediate access and full control of your captures
  • One-click sharing to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter
