    Don't miss this product!!!

    • Written by from Plano

    This is the best video capture card available for Mac. I have spent many hours trying to capture gameplay from my XBOX 360 and PS3.

    This product is the so easy that I had it connected in 2 minutes. It actually comes with an HDMI cable and an editing tool. You can export to YouTube or many other places.

    I refuse to praise products that don't live up to price, but this is a HDMI TO HDMI connection with exceptional 1080p picture and very good sound.

    Note…on XBOX make sure you change the Setting to Stereo not 5.1. It is nice to see that a third party product actually deliver an excellent product.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Moncton

    I bought mine on Thursday of last week. I received it by Monday Morning. First, My jaw dropped when I saw the size of the Elgato. I compared it to my Iphone 4, and its smalled than my phone. Next, The setup is the easiest thing to do ever! A few cables to be plugged in then you're done. After this, You download the software from game capture site and you're ready to begin recording! The elgato support is in my opinion the best support you'll receive from any product. They are nice people and super helpful. Besides my little hiccup I had with it( due to firmware needing to be updated) I give this product 5 stars, simply because, its the best Capture Card on the Market. It's also the smallest. I can't say enough great things about the product and the company. With this purchase, I've now become a long time and extremely happy costumer of Elgato. Thank you guys for an amazing product!

    Works great on Xbox and PS3. Works completely. I have never had a problem with it. Absolutely perfect. Other capture cards say that it can't find capture device, but no this one. And the HD Recording is amazing. If you have a Macbook, PC, PS3, or Xbox, make sure that this is your first choice.

    Absolutely Amazing Product... YouTubers Dream...

    • Written by from Kingston

    This product is so great. I just bought it about a week ago and i've already used it for Livestreaming 2 times and it streamed in full HD with barely any lag. For actual youtube videos it works great and uploads in full HD and comes with a pretty simple to use editing system but I use iMovie for all my editing. Theres only 1 thing that i've found wrong with it and after about an hour of streaming it froze on me and I have to restart my stream but other then that its a great compact recorder. If you have lots of patience you should have no problem hooking this up.

    Terrific Product and Easy to Get Up and Runing

    • Written by from Ajax

    My son has a YouTube channel and he wanted to be able to record his Xbox play so I did some research to find out what hardware we needed. I found lots of solutions online, but few seemed to work with the Mac. I thought I would check out the Apple Store and found this product which received really good reviews. I bought it knowing that if Apple was selling it, it would work properly with my Macs. I also knew that buying anything off of Apple means no hassle, and great support if I had an issue.

    I was also pleasantly surprised to find that this product was being sold by Apple for $50 cheaper than most online stores, so it was a no-brainer and I purchased it. When it arrived, I looked at the instructions, downloaded the software and my son recorded his first video right away. The quality is amazing, the device so easy to use and set up, and the features of the software are easy to figure out. The editing features of the software is limited, but nice that they're there. I took the files and brought them into Final Cut Pro and had a great all around solution to produce professional looking videos. I can't recommend this device enough, and can say it works perfectly on my Mac running 10.10.1.

    Elgato's software will destroy your user profile on your Mac -- stay far, far away. I am in the midst of a total Mac rebuild because an Elgato utility damaged my user profile beyond repair, to the point where I am having to copy everything to another Mac. AVOID. I would give this negative stars if I could.

    Amazing but one problem...

    • Written by from edmonton

    I recently purchased the Elgato Game Capture HD on the online Apple store. I love it except whenever the Elgato program is running on my iMac, the image on my TV screen cuts out and just goes black. Anyone know a solution to this problem? All the settings are correct in my PS3 and Elgato software are correct. Other than this, I love it. It's easy to set up and captures game and audio well.

    What a waste of money...(1) you have to connect it to a PC all the time for your xbox to work. Otherwise you have to keep taking out hdmi cables from tv and xbox and switching them over.

    Doesn't work.

    • Written by from Duncraig

    Bought this to record my XBOX gameplay. Plugged it in and it kept saying that it can't find the capture device. I spent my whole day trying to figure it out and still haven't, I will be returning it and getting a refund. If you have a macbook pro, I would not get this product.
