    NO. DO NOT GET THE EASYCAP.

    It's pure bull quality.

    Get the Dazzle, Hauppuage, BlackMagic, or the Internal AVERTV DVR (for desktops)

    those $10 video capture usb devices are absolutely garbage in just about every category other then convenience (usb rather then internal installation)

    get something in the Hauppuage brand
    it really amounts to how much you want to spend

    DO NOT GET A USB CAPTURE DEVICE IF YOU ARE RECORDING LIVE GAMEPLAY.
    They have TERRIBLE latency. They are not meant for live gameplay.

    Actually my friend has one from HP that works fine except for it gets hot really quickly. He plays wii, xbox 360, and ps2 on his computer without lag. I've never been able to find one like it though. He got it with his laptop.

    Are you sure it's USB and not PCMCIA?

    As others have said, get an Easycap for a cheap non-HD USB capture card. I have one and it's an alright product. Look on Youtube for videos of setting it up, and how to record, and what settings to record it with for the best graphics.

    I'd recommend the HD PVR if you want some good quality recordings, but I think that you have to buy the composite cable for the Wii seperately if you want higher quality, as it just comes with the standard 3 plugs

    Yep I've seen it myself and it is usb. Like I said it came with his laptop. It is a media/gaming laptop. I've checked hp product page and have never been able to find it.

    Did it actually record, or did it just stream and he needed to run a third-party program like FRAPS to do the recording?

    I suggest a Dazzle. I bought an EasyCap. The video quality looked great, but the audio quality had static and was muffled. My sister wanted it so I gave it to her. I plan on getting a Dazzle later (I just need to get to the store)...or I'll save up for an HD video camera since I really want a camera that has a better battery life...but don't get an EasyCap. You have to get really lucky to find one that has good audio. Also, don't record in composite, record in S-Video. Looks a lot better.
