AVerMedia C353 with HDMI Cable DarkCrystal HD Capture Mini-PCIe Card, Supports 1080p 60fp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product presumably does its job The product, as far as I'm aware, performs admirably. It arrived on time and in good condition - however, I did not have the requisite miniPCIe slot to install it into my motherboard and the converters from miniPCIe to PCI seemed to be adapted for wireless receptivity, so I would have found it too technically challenging to install. If you are purchasing this in order to stream from a standard monitor (not a laptop or piece of medical equipment), the LGP Lite, also from AverMedia and available on Scan will probably be a better purchase for you. I ultimately returned this for the LGP Lite. Always read specifications before making a hasty purchase!
