    Probably the best

    Avoid USB if possible and buy a PCIe device instead.


      PCIe is always going to win out but for people with miniITX buids or laptop gaming setups on the fly, this is a solid solution.

      Just out of curiosity what is the boss of capture card setup atm?

      Is it…

        Given that this device is USB 3.1 gen 1, the bandwidth limitation means it can only do 4K@30Hz. You can also forget about HDR at 4K (just not enough bandwidth).
        If you are serious about 4K capture, PCIe is the only way. Thunderbolt 3 is a possibility, but makers would charge a premium on those.

        This one does feel like simply jumping on the 4K bandwagon. If you are serious about 4K gears, I would at least go for 4K@60Hz capable ones, preferably with HDR.


          USB 3.1 spec itself has a bandwidth between 500MB/s to 1.21GB/s. That's 500+ Megabytes per second. On theory a USB 3.1 video capture stick could easily do 4K@60hz if the chipset supported it.

          Even USB 3.0 is plenty enough bandwidth to do 4K@60hz.
