When you begin streaming games live or recording console game videos for YouTube, you need a capture card that works. The Diamond HD Game Capture GC500 device does its job, but not as well as I would have hoped. Although it does allow me to record my play from game systems, it lacks some of the smooth performance I was looking for in order to appear professional. However, the price is right for those that need a solution on a budget.
I’ve never been one to hold much stock in any device that is wireless. There is just too many problems that can crop up, especially if you have more than one device being used relatively close to another. However, I have found that the Afterglow wireless headset brings a lot more to the table than just mobility. Although the price is more than I would usually pay for hardware, I do believe that the money is worth the investment.
