    Cam Link is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works most of the time... USB-C has issues I use this to capture device output from Roku and AppleTV. With my old 2014 Macbook Pro with USB3, it works without a hitch. I can open a Quicktime Movie Capture or OBS and see the output. However, with my 2017 Macbook Pro with USB-C, the capture fails 8/10 times. I get a black screen/no signal. I have tried two different USB-C adapters from two different brands, but it doesn't make a difference.� To add to the mystery, capture works 100% of the time if I send the signal through an HDMI splitter before attaching the Cam Link via USB-C. Honestly I can't fault Elgado for my edge case issues. The device is marketed as USB3 compatible, so my issues with USB-C can be forgiven. And I'm not using it for the intended purpose, which is plugging in an unencrypted HDMI signal from a camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Works great. Knocking it a star because of the build quality. Included USB extension cord is too stiff in my opinion and doesn't provide enough strain relief. Don't touch it while streaming or your video will go out. I guess that was expected, but it's plugged into a USB port I've never used before on a brand new laptop. Also, I can't get OBS to capture reliably while encoding @ 60fps on a core i5 8th generation. I suspect that has more to do with OBS as Elgato's Game Capture HD app works perfectly and is actually useful. I still don't understand why people record and stream gameplay, but whatever. I'm using it with my Panasonic camera, and I guess I find it useful enough to write a review about it

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is only compatible with windows 10 There is no reason that this is only supported in windows 10. There should be a way to install across any windows platform as long as more technical specifications are met. I was provided with no reason that this cam link device should require windows 10 to run. I refuse to upgrade to windows 10. This product is advertised as windows supported. Nowhere did it specify that it was ONLY supported by windows 10.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective A simple to use device enabling one to attach an HDMI camera output to a USB port. (or even a USB-C port with a converter/hub) �There is some software that comes with the device, however, it is not necessary to install it to use this device to capture an HDMI camera to your computer. �The device is essentially�plug-and-play. �I am using it on a MacPro and a MacBook Pro (2016).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HDMI input adapter I have 3 of these and use them all at the same time to run skype and do recordings with Elgato Game Capture Software. The color is coming through better than the game capture device I have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy to use! This is basically plug and play, it does have a download software available for more settings. Works great, it is small and easy to store. It is plastic, but it feels sturdy.
