Experience: 30 Days
- Passthrough is fast
- Simple to set up
- Good for freeing up CPU usage on computer
- No HDCP support
- Software is very poor
This HD PVR does a good job of recording HD content over HDMI. Quality is acceptable. The main problem is the bundled recording software - it is really bad and crashes often, but this product is much cheaper than the competition so it is worth the hassle.

Experience: 6 Months
+ good recording chip
+ High def
+ drivers often updates on Hauppauge site
+ HDMI passthrough
+ Toslink support
- only 30fps at 1080p, you need to set your console/PC to 720p for 60fps
- bad softwares bundles
- You need external accessories to bypass HDCP
- 2 second delay in recording (playing in a window is impossible).
I've been using this little box to record footage of consoles and PC. It been great once you figure the pitfalls of the device, and unfortunately, there's maybe too many for average players.

The first downside is in order to record in 60fps, you need to downsize your resolution output of your console or PC to 720p. If you record at full HD (1080p) you will only able to record at 30fps. It not a huge issue if you buy this device to publish on Youtube, since the famous web streamer only broadcast  at 30fps.

The second downside is the bad software bundles this hardware provide. Despite Hauppauge constantly update  their drivers, their softwares are very unstable and it still have bad and Unfriendly Interface when it comes up to push the settings. I recommend to spend some time on the internet to find better software to capture and to make montage.

No HDCP support. That's mean console like PS3 will only support the old components wiring at 720p. If you want to bypass this, you will need extra hardware to do so, that's about 60$ more.

And finally, recording delay. You cannot play in windows with it, there's a good 2 second delay between the console and the recording window. It impossible to play with it. Fortunately, the HDMI passthrough allow you to change input of your monitor and play with live recording without delay if your monitor/TV support it. But you will still need some hardware addition such as wires to split the audio signal.

Since this item is cheap, I still recommend it, Once you have evaluated the usefulness of this little box, a world of new possibility can be open and you can do many thing with it, such as capturing TV and such.

-Sleek Design
-Cheap compared to alternatives
-Need to Configure it
The product is awesome, you'll need to configure it to get the best results however, and the software included is terrible so I recommend using something else other then that it is exceptionally well done and is a great buy at the 100 to 17 price point.

easy to use and setup
configuration can be complicated, software is lacking
Overall this is a very great product. I used it to do recordings off my Xbox 360. Plugging in all the cables is very easy and the instructions walk you through it as well. The software is on the verge of terrible, so I only used it for recording and used different software to do all my editing. The initial configuration provides very poor frame rate, but after some configuring it records perfect 1080p video. Would recommend as its one of the best at this price point.

Works good, push a button starts recording to your HD.
Settings needs to be tweaked before using. I hear a high pitch noise after using a bit.
I wanted something to record some Xbox game play and this works great for that. But you'll notice your screen will change a very little bit. After pressing the button to record, it'll take a couple seconds before starting. When they say 'no delay' that's game play, there's a delay on your computer screen.
