The product is awesome, you'll need to configure it to get the best results however, and the software included is terrible so I recommend using something else other then that it is exceptionally well done and is a great buy at the 100 to 17 price point.
Overall this is a very great product. I used it to do recordings off my Xbox 360. Plugging in all the cables is very easy and the instructions walk you through it as well. The software is on the verge of terrible, so I only used it for recording and used different software to do all my editing. The initial configuration provides very poor frame rate, but after some configuring it records perfect 1080p video. Would recommend as its one of the best at this price point.
I wanted something to record some Xbox game play and this works great for that. But you'll notice your screen will change a very little bit. After pressing the button to record, it'll take a couple seconds before starting. When they say 'no delay' that's game play, there's a delay on your computer screen.
