abunda_amazon_reviews Was alright. Included USB Male to Male cable was faulty, had to swap it for a new one. Unit also gets very, very hot during use.

Product works as advertised now, but the fact that I had to take external measures to make a three hundred dollar item work like it was supposed to out of the box is a bit silly.;;Reviewed in the United States on January 6, 2017;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Decent product, but has a few faults that could affect product lifetime.;;Dankman;;;Bought this to get an HDMI feed from our Panasonic AJ-PX270 camera to our church computer for livestream purposes. Right out of the box it feels high quality. It’s small but has some weight to it. The usb cable is high quality but too short. Right away it was recognized as a camera input with no *need* to install drivers (more on that later). 1080p video works flawlessly, but we use 720 @29.97 for our livestream. We are routing audio from a separate system, but this does seem to carry high quality audio. The video is clear as crystal... absolutely zero difference between the program and the RAW video recorded to the camera’s card. Beautiful, smooth, color accurate, etc. etc. Very VERY happy with this purchase. IMPORTANT UPDATE after 3 months of heavy use: A word about thermals, performance, and driver downloads. We use OBS (free streaming software) for our stream. For the last 6 weeks or so, our stream had been cruising at around 20fps with TONS of dropped frames (inside of OBS, not just on the receiving end of the stream with a phone or laptop). The first week I determined that I had incorrectly programmed the stream encoder, but even after I fixed it (which solved OBS crashing repeatedly) dropped frames were a HUGE issue. When used, this HDMI capture gets very warm, and our Magewell SDI capture gets too hot to touch. I thought this was the source of our frames dropping, so we bought a cheap fan and some heat sinks. HIGHLY recommended as it brought up our stream to ~27, but for the life of me I could not figure out why our frames were dropping! After many pulled-out hairs, we figured it out, and it was so simple. You do not *NEED* to download the driver utility, but I would recommend it. The same driver works with the SDI and the HDMI capture. It was only until I downloaded the utility that I realized that both the capture cards had been programmed to 1080p59.94. You can change it, but it by default matches your incoming signal. Our stream was currently set to 30.0 FPS. I had assumed this entire time that the incoming signal was 60.0, which is easy on the 30fps encoder because it simply skips every other frame. However, since the incoming signal was 59.94, the encoder was skipping frames to bring it down to 30.0. Solution? I set our OBS session to 29.97, and every input to either 59.94 or 29.97. Beautiful!! Crystal clear 720p29.97!! Conclusion? This performs and looks better than the other capture cards I have, so if you need a capture card for your main cameras I would highly recommend Magewell. For your other inputs you should get a cheaper capture card.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great Adapter;;James;;;My YouTube viewers often write in asking how to use their camcorder as a webcam. Most camcorders do not support this functionality via their USB connections, so an additional device is needed. Magewell's XI100DUSB-HDMI device appears to be the best way to do that with the least amount of aggravation. In fact the device works so well no drivers are needed on the Mac or PC - it just pops up in any application that looks for a webcam. In this video I test it with Skype, Google Hangouts on Air, and Quicktime capture. Each of those applications found the Magewell device without any additional configuration. It even deinterlaces the source video in hardware. Is it perfect? No. For one it's quite expensive at $300. The other issue, at least on the Mac, is that the audio sounds heavily compressed. Without drivers there's no way to adjust audio codec settings. But on balance this is a quick and easy way to get a camcorder connected to a PC without the need for complex configuration or drivers.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 27, 2015;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Incredibly easy to use (no drivers!) but audio quality is lacking;;Lon J. Seidman;;;I put the Capture Dongle to work right away out of the box. Days later I live broadcasted a 4 day event, and streamed over 40 hours in that period. The plug and play ability of the device is great, I did find a driver and downloaded it due to audio not working on USB 3.0 inputs on my computer, but that did not help the problem. The device gets VERY HOT in what seems like no time at all. Of course when it gets hot it starts to lag. The inputs also seem a bit loose, and if I moved the device during use sometimes it would briefly cut out. For the price point I was expecting better, and I hope to find something else in the future that is a little more reliable. I was able to make it work for a very demanding event, but it did not make life as easy as I had hoped. PROS: - Plug and Play - Worked with different encoders CONS: - Gets VERY HOT within 30+ mins of use (literally had to have it sitting on an ice pack during use for long hours) - Video Lags when it gets hot - Audio did NOT WORK when plugging into a USB 3.0 port onto my computer (does work with USB 2.0);;Reviewed in the United States on August 14, 2016;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;OK, but seems to be some bugs that need to get worked out...;;scott
