Not a good review
This review is a fail for a number of reasons:
1) You are capped at 1080p, and probably also limted to 16:9 aspect ratios.
The last Roxio box I checked out did not support:
Any refresh rate > 60FPS
Audio support unless you piped your audio via HDMI (I do not). If you use a DVI port for your main display - no audio.
I dunno about you, but for me, 60FPS is a MINIMUM, not a MAXIMUM!
And 1080i for the Rocket? Please, don't make me laugh. You even need to "export" to get an H264 file???
2) Again, the last roxio box I checked out did not play well with multi monitor.
3) Inaccurate information / Bias
"The reason why these boxes are so great is that there’s no lag – unlike if you were to run Fraps". What the fuck are you smoking? How does a video capture utility cause "lag"?
Input lag? Apart from potentially lowering FPS, nope, not interfering here.
Network lag? Not doing anything on network, so no.
The plain fact of the matter is that this is obsolete tech for PC gamers.
Why the hell am I going to pay money and re-wire my PC, when all I need to do is enable ShadowPlay in Geforce Experience?
Shadowplay gives me, for FREE:
ANY resolution or aspect ratio recording.
No noticeable FPS hit.
"Record from the past" functionality so I can decide to capture AFTER the event.
Video files dumped as an H264 MP4 right to your hard disk. Do you really want to be bothering to transfer Gigs of files via USB??
The added bonus that with an Nvidia card it will also enable game streaming, so I can use a thin client steam box in the front room to play full-fat games from my main PC.
For under £130 you can get an nVidia GPU that will do all this - these boxes are utterly useless for a PC Gamer and only any use for console peeps.
