KitGuru says: Overall, yes, a lot of these products do feel fairly budget to the touch and yes, they do lack some of the features you will find from the likes of Elgato, but in use everything worked very well. We think Streamplify have managed to hit their goals and promises of making affordable streaming gear that works very well for those just starting out or on a tight budget.
