Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket Review

They should really call this the HD PVR Pocket, because of its compact size, you can literally store it in your pocket. The Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket then becomes the ultimate in portability and quality. However, ?Rocket? is equally as apt, as it is an expeditious way of recording gameplay.

What makes this device work so incredibly well is the lack of reliance on a PC to record your gameplay. While you absolutely can hook this up to a computer to record console gameplay, you simply don?t have to. The Rocket can go anywhere and everywhere you need it to. This is ideal if you don?t have a computer or laptop to directly connect it to, lengthy HDMI cables, or even hard drive space to accommodate .

The codec used for recording is done with the widely used H.264 codec. It?s an MPEG-4 format, and records at 30fps.
