I knew my PC was not powerful enough to run capture programs like FRAPS whilst games were set to the highest quality settings. I did not want to take a hit on my FPS. The Live Gamer HD has been a 100% success in this respect - it has very low CPU usage whilst capturing, and the resulting H264 videos are of good quality and only about 1gb for 10minutes of recording. Recordings can be uploaded direct to YouTube (and even edited in YouTube). I have been able to record an event in a game, alt-tab to the desktop and upload it to YouTube, and then give friends in the game the YouTube link - all within the space of a few minutes!
Note I use NVidia graphics. According to some forum posts, AMD graphics user don't get good results but I have not first hand knowledge of this. Now to some downsides - the HDMI sockets in the card are nowhere near as tight as those found on a TV or Blu-ray player, and even a slight movement of the PC or cables can result in the Live Gamer or monitor not being detected. If you use the straight through path of Video card >to Live Gamer >to Monitor, then this leaves you with no picture! The maximum resolution of the straight through path is 1080p which is the res I use anyway, but no good for those using a higher res monitor. Users of Nvidia 3D Vision also will not want to use the straight through path, as the Live Gamer does not carry the frame-packed 3D it just ends up in a mess. Luckily they do show other ways to wire up the card, and the one that works for me is to use clone mode. I have one connection direct from the video card to the TV - this carries the 3DVision picture correctly, and a 2nd connection from the video card goes to the Live Gamer (and then to TV). This works, but using two of the TV's HDMI inputs and the wiring is a bit messy at the back. I would recommend anyone to search YouTube for videos recorded with the Live Gamer - you can get stunning results, and although many edit them before uploading you don't have to. I have used Windows Live movie maker to edit the files and it works well. Some users report problems with other editing programs as they cause the sound to go out of sync but seems that must be an issue with the software, not the Live Gamer recordings, if it's OK in other programs.
I would award it 8/10 and definitely recommend it. Even novices to game recording can use this card :)
