1.0 out of 5 stars Massive mistake & Hassle - DO NOT BUY, 28 Jan 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Bought this for my boyfriend who plays COD on PS3 so he could record gameplay. The recording/playback cuts out intermittently - we only found this out after we had had to buy another cable so it would connect to the TV and after we re-formatted a memory stick (as it has to be in a certain format in order to be able to record gameplay to it). This is not mentioned anywhere on the Avermedia website - nor do they have a UK customer service number.

Regardless of these issues, the box is totally useless anyway as it won't even record and just randomly stops working.

Am in the process of sending back to Amazon for a refund - Can't even contact Avermedia to try to solve the problem (assuming the item isn't just faulty) as no UK phone number and their email support is pretty tragic.

This is one of the few capture cards that records to external hard drive/USB so it's tempting if you don't have a PC next to your console but you are WAY better off buying a different product. It doesn't have an internal HDD and no one (not even Avermedia) sell one specific to this product so it's not easy to even get it working properly.

With the cutting out during recording/playback (faulty product), only records to one format of HDD, comes without the right cables (extra expense) and the dubious quality of recording if you CAN get it working, I would suggest you DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Amazon have been amazing so far with the returns/customer service policy but it's still not nice wondering if I will actually be able to get my £130 back. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little box of magic, 29 Jun 2010
This product is awesome, it is radio quality so not crystal clear but works perfectly, easy to set up and battery lasts for ages. Long enough cable to put ipod in ashtray/on dashboard and tiny box so it doesn't get in the way. VERY happy with this product and for a couple of quid, you can't go wrong!
