The Hauppauge HD PVR Gaming Edition is a product that all gamers should get if you want to record crisp, clear, and sound videos. I was recently able to acquire a unit thanks to the good old folks at Hauppauge. Find out below in this video review why I love the product so much and why you should pick it up! Enjoy the Review!
H.264 AVCHD video encoder
AC-3 audio encoding
Recording datarate: from 1 to 13.5 Mbits/sec (user selectable)
Note: the video input format determines the recorded format. For example, 1080i input records at 1080i, 720P records at 720P, etc. Any other format conversions needs to be done with the MediaConvert program (supplied).
NTSC or PAL supported
19.8cm wide x 17.3 cm deep x 7 cm high
5V at 2 amps
Input voltage of power supply provided: 110-220v at 50/60Hz
1 lb, 3 oz
Easy Installation that even a caveman could do, fool proof instructions that no matter who is setting up the device it shows you step by step.
The device can record in 720p or 1080i and uploading to youtube can be done by the video editing software install on the disc that comes with the unit.
Component cables so that you can record footage for your Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and other consoles.
Lots of wires that can get tangled up easily and look messy in an entertainment system.
The lightweight design is good but it brings about questions to me about the products durability.
Video editing software isn’t the greatest but it does get what you need it to get done.
Lastly, although the gaming edition might cost $199.99 it is well worth the cost of this great product. Recording and uploading videos to YouTube has never been so easy. The display and installation of this device also makes it a highly recommendable product. If you are thinking about recording gameplay pick this up. Thank you Hauppauge for providing the unit for review and look forward to seeing more video content from yours truly, have a great day everyone.
I give the Hauppauge HD PVR Gaming Edition a score of 9 out of 10.
