5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic capture card that is the best on the market., 9 Dec. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elgato Game Capture HD, Xbox and PlayStation High Definition Game Recorder for Mac and PC, Full HD 1080p (Personal Computers)
Video Setup / Tutorial / Comparison: [...]
This is one of the best capture cards on the market as it is far smaller then a hd prv and a hd pvr 2. You also don't meed to plug this in at the mains as it gets its power from the usb port. This has a higher bit rate then the hd pvr so will loo a lot better and can achieve full 1080p quality for an xbox or 1080i for ps3. It comes with all the cables you need for either a ps3 or an xbox 360 however if you want to record a wii or other device you will have to buy the correct cable. The software on this device is fantastic and much better then any of its competitors as it offers flashback recording and the ability to live stream directly from the program, furthermore its in build editing software is easy to use, effective and able to work on both pc and mac. I honestly can't say how impressed with this I am however please note you need a better computer then the hd pvr to get this to work; the minimum requirements is a windows 7 pc with a 2.0ghz duel core processor and 4gb or ram. Fpr mac you need Mac OS X 10.7, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.

You won't be disappointed with this, you may want to like Elgatos facebook as they post various offers that only last a few hours. I got mine for £109

System Requirements

Mac: OS X 10.7 or later, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
PC: Windows 7 or later, 2.0 GHz dual core CPU, sound card
4 GB RAM, built-in USB 2.0 port

It's possible it might work on XP, but it doesn't say it supports it, sadly.

Hi Joe. My friend and i are setting up a Let's Play channel and are looking around for the best capture cards. We own a PS2, Xbox 360 and Wii. These are the formats we want to record on. I was wondering what cable/ adapter would we need to buy for the Wii. Also can the PS2 connect. If not I can borrow a PS3 from someone to play the older games and still connect to the capture card.

The PS2 can be recorded on the Elgato. You have to set it to record an input from Component instead of HDMI to do so (very easily done on the settings on its software). The cable from the PS2 to the Elgato is provided in the box as well as an HDMI cable to connect the Elgato to the tv/monitor. However, be aware that the Elgato cannot record PS1 games being played on a PS2 (I don't know why, that's just how it is). I've heard that PS1, PS2 and PS3 games can all be recorded if they're being played on a PS3 though.

I've never tried recording from the Wii before so I can't help you there. Sorry.

Thank you very much. I'm aware that only fat ps3's can play ps2 games so will look to see if we can get a cheap used fat ps3. Will look further into the wii thing as that console will allow us to record old Nintendo games.
