Elgato Systems Game Capture HD overview

  • 1Description

With the Game Capture HD High Definition Game Recorder from Elgato, you can relive your greatest gaming moments time and time again and even share with friends and fans. That's because the Game Capture HD lets you record PS3/PS4 or Xbox 360/Xbox One gameplay to a Mac or PC.

Advanced hardware H.264 encoding lets you capture in HD yet keeps the file size small. Gameplay is passed through to your TV via HDMI. With direct input, you can use a single cable to connect the recorder to your console, eliminating a tangle of cables in your entertainment area.

Along with the recorder, you also get software that makes it easy to capture every move you make, even if you forget to press the record button. The software also lets you trim your gaming scenes and pass them on to your favorite editing software. The Flashback Recording feature lets you timeshift your gameplay -- that means retroactively hitting the record button on your computer. And with a single click, you can share your gameplay on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

    Elgato Systems Game Capture HD reviews

    Game Capture HD High Definition Game Recorder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Look, a Legendary Product! The Elgato Game Capture HD is the best capture device as of now for recording video game gameplay! I currently use it to capture Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC footage. The Elgato is amazing because it's easy to set up, use, and your recordings will look great without taking up too much of your hard drive space. I have no problems with the device, but 1080p/60fps capture for next-gen/PC gameplay and recognition for webcams for doing live face cam sessions is something we've been longing for. It'd be awesome! I've bought 2 for personal use and 3 for giving away on my Youtube channel. Throw away any of your doubts, you can't go wrong with an Elgato!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little box with a lot of power I use the product to record myself playing Battlefield 3, and its record amazingly in 1080p. It is a very easy and simple set up to get it to record on my computer. I absolutely love my ElGato game recorder. With that said, there are one or two things that bother me. When exporting videos that I cut it sometimes freezes, and if I hadn't already closed the application before it froze then everything I did was set back to full videos (instead of clips). Besides those two minor incoveniences, which don't happen too often, this is fantastic product. For the money that you put into it, it is definitely worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EL GATO INCOMING! ITS ALL OVER! i was one of the first in the world to purchase a WiiU and i was hoping to record with my dazzle. its an HDMI first console so the dazzle with just composite connections was out of the question. ive owned a hauppauge before and i didnt like it that much. El Gato blew me away when i found out about it's ability to record in 1080p and have a passthrough so that i can continue to play in HDMI quality and not sacrifice the quality in HD for some recordings. the price is great. whats no so great about it? nuffin. although if you record at your ladys house and she has the cpu on one side of the room and the WiiU and TV on the other side, you will need to invest in some long HDMI cables which i am doing...from where you ask? B&H baby!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar HD GameCapture i4mb3c0m3d34th, you do not need your laptop until time to edit. I use this on my Wii U and I plug it into my Wii U USB port to power it, no laptop needed. This works the same on the 360/PS3, just FYI. This device is amazing and if you have a decent CPU, you will love it. For the money, best you can buy in my opinion, I have nothing bad to say about it. It also looks really nice set next to my Wii U Deluxe Set and 2TB WD MyBook. It fits my theme perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set-up, High Quality video I've been wanting to get a game capture unit for a while. This one was a breeze to set up and install. The software has a user-friendly UI and is fairly straight forward to use. The video quality is crisp and clean. I haven't experienced any audio lag or video glitches since I've used it. My only qualm is having to unplug the unit to use my Xbox when I don't want to capture any game play or just stream videos. Otherwise, top notch product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent device Works Incredibly well. This is my second one. This is the backup unit. Hooked to a quad-core i5 8GB. Make sure you have a fast computer. I cannot emphasize this enough. This desktop is running at 30-55% during recording. It is recording at minimum speed & quality. I do not use this for recording video games. I use it for recording from hdmi camera. Video quality is great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately Worth The Price I got this as a birthday gift, and use it to stream gameplay from my PS3 to Twitch as well as capture screenshots and footage directly from the console. It works perfectly & was easy to set up. Image quality is great - I stream and record at 720p, and it looks really good. Not very many cons, other than the Elgato software that you can get - for free - isn't all THAT fully featured. You can use it to stream to places like Twitch and Ustream, or upload past recorded footage to Youtube, but that's about where it ends. That said, the software works great, though if you want to do more, I'd recommend something like Open Broadcaster, also free and a lot more control over your streaming/recording settings as well as having more features, like being able to have multiple scenes to make your stream more of an actual broadcast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I use this product to stream from my wii u to twitch and it couldn't be any easier to set up and use, just plug & play then enjoy your game and let the world see you in action. The only thing that might bother some is that the device has to have USB power for your picture to show up on your tv or you have to rewire your av cables everytime you want to put it away.
