I bought this to record gameplay and it works great. I was really torn on getting the internal or external USB version but due to budget I picked the USB version and couldn't be happier.
Some people claim of lag with this usit but I haven't seemed to have the lag issues some people complain about. Maybe they are using the older model that isn't USB C. Not sure just a theory.
The USB cable is nice and long so you shouldn't have an issue getting it plugged into a port and the unit itself is much smaller than I expected so doesn't take up much room on the desk and feels well built.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking to get great captures but don't have alot to spend.
