Very easy to set up, the manual was easy to follow and so was the quick set up guide, a couple of points to mention, this device does record straight to USB flash drive or a SATA 2.5 drive can be installed, I use the USB option as I can take the footage to the PC for editing.
The best recording is Real Time Mode (blue light) this cuts out any lag, it is a must to get a good USB flash drive or some frames can be dropped, I use the Verbatim pinstripe 16GB and have the Xbox's display set to 720p and each minute uses 82Mb of storage.
All in all a nice gizmo and with the added bonus that USB can be used this is especially handy when the PC maybe upstairs and a console downstairs, snapshots are of high quality, the remote is small and functional.
SATA and USB drives must be formatted in NTFS - Google for hp ntfs format tool if you have problems formatting to NTFS.
I also suggest getting the latest firmware from [...] this is for the C281 model and allows MP4 capture.
