The Elgato Game Capture HD60 comes with:
4 different cables,
1 Elgato Game Capture,
The Elgato HD60 offers easy to use instructions and video recording.
The video recording is as simple as clicking a button, and you can insert a microphone directly to your Elgato.
Your Elgato HD60 also has the option of live streaming, which allows you to record LIVE to your YouTube/Twitch channel.
You can easily save the files to your computer through the Elgato.
The process is easy and functional.
To some YouTubers, the price may seem high, but it's a low price to pay for the quality you're getting.
The Elgato is a great product for PS4, Xbox 1, and even Wii U if you want to record.
The videos are HD and perfect quality, though the live stream has a 10 second delay to when they can see it, though that is mostly YouTube's fault.
The Elgato is a perfect product for anyone who wants to record on their console and doesn't know how, especially for live streaming and for any YouTuber.
The Elgato software that comes with it was very slow and caused lag on my computer, so I opted not to use it (and use OBS instead). One issue that occured was if I knocked the USB of the card by accident, I would have to completely close out of OBS and restart it to get the card to start again, which interrupted my stream.

First the initial setup:
The HD60 is pretty simple to setup upon arrival. You simply disconnect the HDMI coming out your console from the end going into the TV, plug the TV end into the IN port on the HD60, then plug the supplied HDMI into the OUT port then the other end into the TV.
After this you plug the USB cable into the Elgato and then into your computer.
Thats all the hardware setup, from here you just need to setup the software side of things which Is relatively simple. All you need to do is go to Elgato's website and download the 'Game Capture HD' software that will allow you to get the signal up on your computer.
PS4 USERS: (If you get no signal you need to go to your PS4 settings > system then untick 'Enable HDCP'
Overall the setup is pretty straightforward and the Elgato has a light bar that will flash to tell you if something isn't setup right, nice and simple.
For those who don't want to use the Elgato software to stream/record, you can also download free programs such as xSplit or OBS. You can go to input sources and the Elgato should show up there.
The Elgato captures great quality video without any issue.
Its very easy to setup.
The Elgato software allows you to stream + record straight from the software.
If you use other streaming/recording programs the Elgato video signal can easily be picked up by these programs.
The Elgato software also has a time machine like feature, meaning if you have the software open, even if your not recording, you can go back and watch footage that the Elgato has picked up, the software effectively records everything and then if you don't actually hit record/go back and save what its recorded, it deletes it.
Can be pricey, there are other options out there, however in my opinion the Elgato is still the best screen capture device.
If your using PS4, you must disable HDCP when you use the Elgato, this means some programs won't be allowed to run, I believe that includes ones like Netflix, so if you use your PS4 as a media centre also, you may need to keep changing settings and changing what cables are plugged in as with HDCP enabled you may not get any signal through to your TV.
There's a slight delay between when you make & see an input on the TV, and when it appears on the computer, meaning you still need to use the TV to play the games without the delay,
This is a great peace of kit and a good investment for anyone looking to start up streaming or a YouTube channel, its probably one of the easiest ways your going to be able to get a good quality HD image from the console onto a computer that you can then record/stream on.
Plus, it doesn't capture properly at high frame rates on older hardware (by that I mean a 5 year old intel core 2 duo desktop with 8 gb of ram, with a 1gb Radeon video card, so not a complete slug yet!!) It crashes his Windows 8.1 Netbook on anything over 720p.
It is laggy and skippy, at high frame rates, which is perplexing as I thought the whole point of these cards was that they did the rendering on the onboard processor without relying overly on the external hardware of the PC. How much does it rely on stealing processor cycles from the PC?? When I get time I'm going to benchmark it against a wholly software capture solution, and see how it fares. I suspect a well written piece of software installed directly on a PC would obviate the need for this piece of kit with a fast modern PC, especially if it was written for the CPU and GPU combined. Stay tuned!
Youtube is your best friend if you buy this little guy.
Once you have everything set to how you want it set. Each time you wish to record or stream, it's super simple to get that going. I do have occasional issues with streaming, where the quality is really bad and skipping. Still trying a fix for that. But recording and uploading is amazing quality.
Despite the trouble it is to set it up, I would still recommend, I however hope it's none of my friends because I refuse to help set it up again haha
