    AVerMedia Live Gamer HD reviews

    RECentral Live Gamer HD PCIe Capture Hardware Encoder is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Pretty Great Finding the right software for is was a little confusing but the product works pretty great. Only negative thing is when booting up my PC my second monitor that is plugged into the AverMedia doesn't register right away and often times I have to hit the input button or turn off the monitor entirely. But other than that it works consistently very well! P.S. Make sure when downloading software for this on AverMedia website that you change the product to Live Gamer HD the website defaults to Portable

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Recommended Did not improve my video stream quality over my current set up, OBS and straight CPU. Drivers must be downloaded from Avermedia and are terrible!!!!! I repeat the driver support was so bad I could not fathom keeping this device. I'll be waiting it out for a portable elgato game capture device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Product I wish there was a way to use the Button as a screenshot instead of just start/stop record. Driver and software download is on website and isn't exactly straightforward, but doable.
