Amazing recording device!

I make YouTube videos on my channel GeekFrom2DoorsOver for a hobby, and the Elgato makes recording gameplay footage flawless! It's easy to set up, easy to use, and I'm excited to test out it's streaming capabilities in the future! I went with the HD USB 2.O model to still be able to record retro games.

Not just for gaming

I've used this device and it's software to live stream sporting events. I used a network drop (instead of Wifi) and sent video to theCube.com over RMTP. worked great and was very stable.

Good But Don't Buy It From Best Buy

[...] The product itself is amazing from what my son has said. Works on Windows 8.1, as you download the software from their website. I'm giving this review 5 stars for everything and 1 star for overall rating. [...]

I have had the elgato for about 2 years and its the best cap card by far

Not true it's not Windows 8.1 compatible

To the person claiming this is not Windows 8.1 compatible, that's the furthest from the truth it can be. I purchased it while I had Windows 8 and after Windows 8.1 update, device works even better. A lot faster respond and communication between the device and the software. Totally not true it's not compatible with Win8.1. Please get your facts straight before you claim something like that.

Small but powerful

Finally received this awesome capture device, very easy to setup (Win/Mac compatible). Recored on Wii / Wii U / PS3, the quality was pure perfect and the gameplay video (Mario kart 8 )went smoothly~ (it even include a HDMI cable, how convenient is that ?!) Highly recommended for youtube gamers who wish to upload their gameplay!

  • from Newmarket, ON

Its OK

Had trouble working it and pretty sure its not windows 8.1 compatible

  • from London, ON


I absolutely love my elgato! It shipped very fast and arrived in perfect working condition! Would definitely recommend over any other capture card!

  • from Woodbridge, ON


Have been using this item like crazy, everyday for about 2-3 weeks now and I love it! I use it only for YouTube (channel: GMO Gaming)

  • from Bowmanville

Excellent Product

It was a Christmas present for my son. He loves it. Uses it at every opportunity and shares lots of video on you tube. A great gift!

  • from Calgary, AB


I bought this product to record game plays and post them on my YouTube! :D And so far it has been an AMAZING experience! its the best capture card EVER!

  • from Hamilton, ON


This device is very dependable, yes it crashes when u hook it out to ur computer then re-opens but other than that its a great device its quick , the speed is incredible and its easy to use , 5 year olds can hook it up!!

Hi I was so happy when I got it but if you want to record your own voice you need a component cable which cost 29.99 but the rest of the product it wins any completion worth the money

  • from Saint Catharines, ON

Very dissapointed

I got theis after reading all the reviews to find that it didn't work properly at all. It crashed my pc many times and continuously restarted m xbox when the elgato wanted to work. Spent a whole day trying to get it to work and I gave up because it always disconnected or turned off and kept restarting my xbox.

Prestine picture quality

This product is hands down the best piece of recording software, 1. It is small and easy to travel with 2. In such a small device can record full 1080p 3. If you miss something or forget to record, just drag the slider back 4. Installation of the software from the website iis easy simple 5. The box comes with a detailed breakdown of how to set it up 6. As soon as you are done recording something it immediately gets saved, and you can find it in the Edit folder to watch over. Sleek, Clean, Amazing.

Not a hitch found yet!

I bought this so that I could expand my channel from solely PC game commentaries to console games as well. So far I haven't had any issues with it and it was very simple to install. It comes with it's own hdmi cable as well which was a nice feature. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to record gameplays. It is very compact and does the job quietly.

this might be an old product but for my youtube channel i had to ask my friend to borrow his until i can afford one and now i can and i personally loved it better then my friends pvr that was repaired so many times and messed up my recording and his recording so personally im purchasing this product and im happy with it after testing it out and the easy setup using 3 cables and an extra one for live trolling on black ops, easy to use program thats a free download, and this little iphone size object that gives off 1080i for ps3 and 1080p for xbox is INSANE and i love it when i forget to press record and i can go back

  • from Corner Brook, NL


Easy to install, works with windows 8, and amazing for what it's worth and does!!! Recommend it to anyone :)

Simple, Cheap and HD Quality

I've been using this product for about 1 1/2 at the time of this review. It is absolutely amazing! I've been researching ways to record my Xbox 360 gameplay in HD and this is the perfect solution. The main reasons are the price and setup. Compared to a Blacmagic product, this is even better. It's literally a "plug-and-play" type of device. I recommend this product for anyone who wants to record their gameplay.

Best Game Capturing Device on the Market

I bought this game capture device to replace my broken HD PVR. This device is hands down better. It's smaller, no power supply and can record your games in the background so if you miss a good clip, you can rewind and record it again. If you have an HD PVR there is no immediate need to upgrade, but if your new and this is your first game capture product this is the best card to get. Also, it now records 1080p so you can play in 1080p and record in very high quality

Best game capture better than the hd pvr
