To start of with this item came very fast within 18 hours of the initial order, it was bought as a present for me for my birthday. i was originally swayed away from the product due to some reviews that i did not look into, and was going to go for the PVR gaming edition, but being nearly 4x more expensive than this product i decided to go for the roxio. i checked all the comments for low ratings to discover that most of the problems where all user-based and none where product based, the ones that where product based had the Amazon saying they will send a replacement free of charge, most of the reviewers would be using laptops. as i have access to both having testing both laptop and a very high spec gamin PC ( AMD Hexa-core @ 3.5GHz and 8GB DDR3 Ram). the program ran so smooth and capture was crystal clear and audio synced. to dis-miss another user based problem (the audio) their is a tab on the capture application (under the video window) that will mute the sound from your console on the computer but still record the audio, or you could just turn down the volume) When using this program with my laptop (Intel Duo-Core @3.0GHz and 3GB DDR2 RAM) the program was unresponsive and froze my laptop. DONT buy this if you don't intend on using it on a desktop, and also remember the other brands will not work on your laptop either, the software is amazing and simple to use, install takes 5-10 mins and does require a restart. my only negative view is the you-tube upload is limited to either 1028mb or 10 mins length ( you can just upload via browser anyway so this is not a real issue for me ) as for the 100000000% bass increase, when you publish the video, normalize the audio.... it is that simple. i hope this helps in your decision.
