Works nicely. -Same card inside as Razer Ripsaw
September 25, 2018
This is my third card in two months. The first was a $90 cheapie which worked but had poor image quality. I have no complaints other than that, so didn't return it. It delivered as promised.
The second was nearly $200, had my hopes up, but had significant lag and the image quality was no different than the cheapie. It even needed an external power source, so it took up a socket with its own wall wart. It was dumb, and it took me a couple of hours of messing around just to get it to work. It got sent back for a refund because despite its bells and whistles, (like a remote control) it was handily out-performed by the no-name cheapie. Not impressed.
This AverMedia LGX is my third attempt to get something satisfactory, and I am happy to report a fine success!
The lag is nice and short, the output image quality is noticeably better than the cheapie, and it is powered by the USB 3 plug, so no external adapter is required.
I had to download a driver package from the AverMedia website, and it worked quickly and easily. Once done, it was instantly recognized by its own proprietary software as well as OBS.
I have no complaints at all with this device and feel confident in recommending it.
Also, there is one interesting note to add. -The reason I decided upon this one was that while reading through reviews, and trying to decide if I should get a Razer Ripsaw, I came across an article which demonstrated that this unit had exactly the same OEM parts inside as its competitor. The same motherboard and everything.
So I just picked the one with the lower ticket price. The AverMedia LGX.
$200 after taxes is still a lot of money, but from my explorations, it's the least you can spend if you are looking for something which can do a high quality job. -And you can spend just as much on crapware if you're not careful.
