There are 5 main recording devices that are good to use.


HD PVR

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

The HD PVR is priced roughly between 140-160 pounds in the U.K or $180-$210 in the U.S

It records in full 1080p and can be used for Xbox 360 and PS3.

If you want the best quality for your money you should to buy this.


Black Magic Intensity Shuttle

The Black Magic Intensity Shuttle is priced at 180 pounds in the U.K or $200 in the U.S

It can record in both 1080p HD and SD. It is compatible with the Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii.

This recording device is similar to the HD PVR but can be used for more systems so i think it should be used depending on your chosen console.


Roxio Game Capture


[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

The Roxio Game Capture is priced roughly between 60-70 pounds in the U.K or $80-$100 in the U.S

It can record in 720p but with advanced settings it can be upgraded to 1080p. It is compatible with Xbox 360 and PS3. There isn't a composite input port on the device so it is not possible to use with the Nintendo Wii.

I think it is a suitable device for anyone getting started and it is a reasonable price.


Dazzle DVC 100


[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

The Dazzle DVC 100 is priced roughly between 30-40 pounds in the U.K or $45-$50 in the U.S

It can reach 480p whilst recording but with a Dazzle Platinum 720p quality can be reached. It is compatible with Xbox 360, PS3 and the Nintendo Wii.

This device is very simple and offers decent quality. A few flaws to it is that it comes without the required double ended AV cable, the 3 RCA splitter's needed and the software given needs immediate driver updates once installed.


Easycap DC60


[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

The Easycap DC60 is priced at 8 pounds/dollars so it is very affordable.

When recording the Easycap can reach a maximum of 480p but bad render quality's may cause it to drop to 360p. It is compatible with Xbox 360, PS3 and the Nintendo Wii.

Like the Dazzle DVC 100 this device is simple to use but quality levels are not the best when the video renders. I would only use this if you can not afford one of the other 4 devices or are not bothered about quality levels.

I never got why is has an HD on it. it only captures in 480p which is not High Definition. I saved $50 and got the dvc100 for my first cap card and i had the best quality possible that's not a pvr. but i got a pvr and it looks stunning now
