All in all this device works very well, all the video I recorded was saved very quickly in real-time onto my PC, and the quality is very high. You can see from my BFBC2 video how 1080P looks, it is very crisp, and the only issue is YouTube and your internet connection being able to keep up! This device went past my expectations when it came to features, I had no idea it is able to record on a scheduler, and that makes it a very handy tool to have around the house. For a hardware reviewer like me I find ways to get the most use out of my samples, and being able to record the UEFI is a really cool thing for me, and in my opinion something every reviewer should have. An example could be for GPU reviews where it could be useful to capture issues with GPU playback like stuttering.
The system is very easy to use; however there are/were two issues. The first was that there was no download of their software on their site, however they have since added the software to their site, so that is now a none issue. The second is that they don't provide an HDMI cable while they do provide all the others. I think most users will be recording with HDMI/1080P as that is what sets the GC1000 apart from lower models, so it would be nice to get one in the package as you will need two for pass through. However in the end it isn't a design issue, just something to keep in mind when purchasing it, so be sure to purchase an HDMI cable if you need too. The GC1000 is a really great device, at $129.99 it is a bit pricey, but 1080P recorders with HDMI and all the other inputs aren't very cheap. This is an excellent option if you need HDMI, such as a need to record gameplay from an XBOX 360. It was very easy to use and worked very well. The recording quality is great and the software is complete. If you are in the market then the Diamond Multimedia GC1000 is a great option. Remember it can record anything on your TV/PC as long as your media device has one of the following: HDMI, Component, S-Video, or Composite.
