Top critical review
overheated and malfunctioned after a few weeks.
Reviewed in Canada on January 9, 2021
i bought two of these for streaming (one for my switch and one for my camera) in hopes that i wouldn't have to buy an expensive capture card. they worked great out of the package, but after a couple weeks of testing them out for streams they suddenly malfunctioned while connected to my computer and overheated to the point i could barely touch them.
this might be good for a streamer who is just starting out. i can't say for sure if i just got a faulty product or if it's just the fact that they're cheaply made, but please keep in mind that i had TWO of these malfunction on me, they won't even connect to my pc anymore.
keep in mind that you're getting what you pay for, and for professional live streaming it's good to invest in something of high quality and that's known to be reliable.
something that i didn't know before i bought these was that you can use your camera as a webcam without one of these (google your specific camera to use as a webcam).
my advice to the company making these would be to fix the overheating problem, because i believe that's what caused it to malfunction.
