              Comments about Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket Portable HD Game Recorder:

              I use this for recording video game consoles and external video from a PC/Mac and absolutely love it. I like it better than having to deal with a video capture card on a PC since this is small and easy to transport. There are a couple small things that I would like changed, but the good outweighs the 'bad'. It only has a 3.5mm phono audio jack for a microphone input for doing commentary/voice over; while it works fine, I would much rather be able to use a USB mic like a Blue Snowball. Lastly, you have to use RCA (component video) with PS3 instead of HMDI due to some kind of 'copy protection' issue; which is slightly annoying. Other than that, it is great and records 1080p @ 30fps with no issues.

                Records from HDMI or Component video - easy to set-up and use. Picture looks pretty good with an H-264 codec. Mp4 file edits with Edius 7 - great workflow.
