4 Very Impressed, great quality, simple to usegrundigtharg | 25/01/2012 | See all grundigtharg's reviews (11)we tried a hauppage but had to send it back due to lines on screen, missing drivers ect ..... so took a gamble with this unit. the best feature is how simple it is to use and it does not need a pc to be connected while your recording. however a decent sized USB stick or external drive is required (there is an option for an internal HD laptop HD) but this means no faffing about with a pc while your playing a game, just press record on the unit or remote ..... its that easy! a slight down side is the file format is AVi, however for around 20 we bought sony vegas 11 HD and this enables editing, conversion and posting to YouTube easilly. there are links on their web site for free versions etc.on the whole a great unit, great quality at 1080i but you will need to buy a decent sized USB stick or drive, dont listen the the hauppage fan boys, this is a decent alternative!
