I had been looking for some time to find a HD recording device that didn't need to be installed into a PC or Laptop, this ticked the boxes.
The recording device is so simple and easy to use. It took no time at all to install the software and drivers on my Laptop that came with the Hauppauge HD PVR. The software its self is easy to use, anybody with a little bit of computer knowledge should beable to work with the software in well under 30mins.
My main reason for purchasing this item was so I could record my Online Gaming Footage from my PS3, mainly playing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. It can record footage on either 720P or 1080i via Component lead. I can record the footage and play at the same time with no lag or any other issues.
An excellent piece of kit, worth every penny just go and buy it!.
Also on a little side note PLAY.COM are quickly becoming my favourite online retailer. Their massive stock holding, competitive prices and really quick delivery with no hassle means I will use them time and time again. Keep up the good work :) .
