WinTV Express, Hauppauge:

Device Tech Specs

Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: N/A

Capture resolution: 720*480 Probably
Sound Capture: No white or red composite audio input, only line in, cable provided
Compatibility: PC, PCI Slot

Price: ~20 or $15 from ebay.

More Information

pretty good capture quality when u use no compression overall. jsut like any other when using wmm, like dazzle dvc 90.

Pros

- Good price
- Medium quality
- CAN RECORD IN PAL-60 USING DScaler SOFTWARE in full res and color and quality.

Cons

- If you're gonna get sound set up, don't ask me :D
- It's internal so gonna have to open up your PC

- Quality could be better then it would be the ultra card.

Notes

comes with WinTV2000 software to capture with and all the usually cables :D includes sound, (line in) cable. here's a little sample vid but bad quality because it was on low setting when recorded then ecoded with wmm on 2.1mb/s so bit blurry and fuzzy when moving. here u go, gears of war pal 60 proof with me owning hammer of dawn style online :D

Datavideo DAC-200


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: Firewire
Capture resolution: 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC and Mac
Price: $184


A little about my Device
The DAC-200 is an amazing capture card, but a little bit on the expensive side. It captures both audio and video at super high quality. Very easy to use with a Mac, just open Quicktime 7 Pro or iMovie and record. Not sure about PC's, but I would guess it would be the same as a Mac if you have a Firewire port.


Pros
-Amazing quality for both audio and video
-Extremely easy to use
-Comes with a Firewire cable if you don't have one already


Cons
-A little on the expensive side


Notes
IMO, this is a great capture card, if you are willing to pay the money. Here is a clip I recorded from the Halo 3 Beta to show the quality.

Dazzle 170 - 08-20-2007 , 08:20 PM


Pinnacle Dazzle DVC 170 (Dazzle Video Creater Platinum)


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: USB
Capture resolution: 352x480, 480x480, 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $70 at Best Buy


A little about my Device
Its silver and small, about 6"x4"x1". I bought it at Best Buy and it was cheaper than what the website said. It has input for composite cables (red, yellow, white) and an S-Video cable. It connects to my PC using a USB cable which is build into the device.

Pros
~Its nice and small
~It can capture from composite or S-Video
~Great quality for an inexpensive price
~The software and drivers worked properly on the first try


Cons
~The picture is a tad grainy, but not too bad
~The program used to capture (Studio 10) requires a lot of memory and makes my computer run slow D=
~Plugging it in takes up a valuable USB port...
~You need 2GB of hard drive space to install the programs
~With Studio 10, you download a bunch of effects for free but you have to pay to use them, which stinks

Notes
My device came with editing software, although its VERY basic, and probably worse than Windows Movie Maker. I have no idea what the warranty on it is. It comes with no cables other than the built in usb cable. I would definitely suggest this to anybody. Here is a video I filmed on the highest quality

Hauppauge HD PVR

Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: external
Firewire or USB: USB
Capture resolution: up to 720p / 1080i
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $199.99 (newegg)


A little about my Device
This device was literally a dream come true for me. It's a little bigger than I expected, but by no means unwieldy, it's actually rather compact for what you get. I don't really care to much for looks so much as functionality for something like this, but this thing delivers both. It's about 1.5-2" tall, about 6" wide, and maybe 4" deep. There is a nice blue light that shows that it is powered on when idle, and when capturing, there are blue lights around the rim on the top that give a soft glow, illuminating the desk nicely. All in all I'm 99% satisfied with the unit.


Pros
Component input with 720p / 1080i recording
Optical Audio inputs as well as stereo
Hardware encoding delivers speed over software encoding.
The software it ships with is very easy to use, simply choose your audio and video input from the list and where you want to record, it determines the resolution of the video based on what signal is coming through the wires.


Cons
No built-in screenshot function
Device feels flimsy, but it's not.


Notes
The software this device ships with is very easy to use. In addition to the normal Hauppauge software you're getting, you also get Arcsoft Totalmedia Extreme. The device records to .TS format, but the Arcsoft software has a built-in converter that will convert the video to many different formats, including wmv for the Xbox 360, mp4 for the ipod, and a lot more. You can also control the bitrate of the video, all the way up to 13.5 Mbps, and the video resolution is automatically determined by the signal coming through the wires, meaning if you're plugged into the component of your 360, and you set it to 1080i HD, it'll record 1920x1080i, if you set it to 720p, it'll do that. And it's not upconverted, it's true to the source. Here is a quick sample clip I shot last night while setting it all up.

Capture resolution: NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: OS X 10.4.8, Windows XP Professional/Vista Ultimate

A little about my Device
The Intensity Pro has HDMI/Component/S-Vdieo/Composite in and outs.

Pros
•Insane quality. The intensity captures the full HD resolution to a wide variety of codecs, including Uncompressed, ProRes, DVCPROHD, and Motion JPEG (as opposed to compressed h.264 or MPEG-2 for other HD recorders).
•Real time scaling and pulldown for video preview.
•No lag at all in the capture window or while passing video to a monitor during capture.

Cons
•No preset for 720p30
•No SDI connections
•Steep system requirements
•Playback while capturing does not support scaling at this time.
•HDMI obeys HDCP.

Notes
•The Halo 3 cutscenes in HD in the HBO cutscene library were captured with this Card.
•Supported capture applications- Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Media Express (included), Quicktime Pro.

The easyCap is quite possibly worse than shaky cam. There's a reason it's 2.

The Black Magic Intensity Pro and Shuttle If you have USB 3.0) are very good as well as the Hauppauge

This. I highly recommend the Hauppauge HD PVR. I've had it for about 2 years and I just love it. It's an external card, captures up to 1080i HD with digital optical audio (up to 6 channels.) If you're looking for something internal, go with the Intensity, it's also a great card on par with the HD PVR, but you need HDMI to use it (which is why it won't work for me, I have the old Xbox.) They're also the same price, $200.
