Review 1 for Elgato Game Capture HD

Excellent Passthrough device.

Great for casual streaming; quality is superb on both ends. One thing to note is that quality is set low by default so some setup is required before you start.
The default video editing software is rather strange in that it will store two copies of any video saved. To completely remove a video, either open the recording log manually or use the software to delete it.
The PS3 cable connection can be used to connect both a PS3 and any other HD console to one input, making it a convenient way to manage consoles and connect multiple consoles to one television.

User friendly, great picture quality. Would def. recommend. If I had to give a negative it would be that the video editing that the program does is limited. Still a great product.

Review 4 for Elgato Game Capture HD

No HDMI for PS3!?!

After buying this and trying to hook it up using HDMI, it will not work that way. You have to use component video, which doesn't even compare to HD. Maybe if you are watching it on a 27" screen it may not be as bad, but on a 73" DLP...not even close. If you can use the HDMI with the set-up, then you may be satisfied. With PS3...don't waste your time or money.
