Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition

 

The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is a capture device designed specifically for video games, and despite its limitations can be an invaluable tool for making online videos.

Captures video game footage from consoles to a PC. Easy to use. Slim, attractive design. Includes cables for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

HDMI encryption limits PlayStation 3 video quality and convenience. Composite and S-Video cables not included.

The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 gaming Edition is slightly pricey and suffers from HDMI limitations with the PlayStation 3, but it's flexible and simple to use. If you want to make Let's Play videos, reviews, or other projects that require recording your games,...

A solid device that will fill your capture needs. Hauppauge even includes plenty of cables for the consoles as well. PlayStation 3 limitation of using component can't be blamed on them.

Review: Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition

 

Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition video recorder

Smaller than predecessor ; HDMI and component input ; Lag free HDMI pass-through ; Clean, bright video capture

Bundled PC software only serviceable ; Macintosh software available, but at additional charge ; The device's green light is very distracting in dark environments

The market for video game recording is somewhat limited, and demanding at the same time. Machinima directors and actors could use a recording tool, as well as professional gamers, or even just a journeyman gamer wanting to display his against-the-odd

For some hardcore gamers, winning isn't enough; posting videos online for all to see is the only way to satisfy their egos. If this sounds like you, then the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition, a standalone PS3/Xbox/Wii video recorder, is right up your...

Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition

 

The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition has been the go-to capture device for many gamers looking to dive into the world of YouTube. But with next-gen now in full swing and everything leaning towards the golden digits of 1080p, 60fps, just how well does...

Easy to use ; Records footage from retro consoles

Doesn't support 60fps ; Bulky design ; Expensive ; Requires its own power supply

Overall, you could do much worse than using the Hauppauge HD PVR 2, especially since it offers the ability to record footage from retro consoles. However, considering it costs £165, its failure to offer 60fps is a huge disappointment. Also, its bulky...

Even though I had some issues with the setup of the HDPVR I can’t really knock it for its performance, bumping the quality upto 1080p really makes a difference as far as I am concerned and some integration of HDMI support is more than welcome. While...
