Excellent Product and Customer Service

The shadowcast works very well as a compact capture card. Of course, it integrates with the Switch seamlessly. I have also been able to use it to cast from older consoles (with an additional adapter, of course). The desktop app has not given me any trouble, either.

The only flaw is that the device might overheat with extended use. It's best to disconnect it from the power source when you're not using it.

Customer service was excellent. When I believed there was a problem with my order they handled it very quickly.

Great Capture card, just a few small issues that should be addressed.

While I love the Genki there is also some problems with it also. The Genki is an amazing budget capture card at only 50 bucks but there are some issues with the program to use it. Before I dive into cons though i want to say the Pros for this product. This product, as I already said makes for an amazing budget capture card, its portable and latency is surprisingly EXTREMELY low. You can practically take the Genki anywhere you go if you have a laptop. Now into the cons... The main issue with the Genki is the program it uses, Genki arcade. To start I have had this issue lately where no audio has been able to come from my Nintendo Switch/PS5 (I use the Genki primarily on these systems). Now while there is a fix to it (To anyone else having this issue and can't figure it out you completely disconnect the Genki from YOUR COMPUTER not your system. if that doesn't work disconnect it entirely) I still feel like it should be addressed in some way as I've noticed this issue has been around for a lot longer than I thought. Another problem with Genki arcade is that in order to access the more (not so) advanced settings, you have to put in the Konami code (up, up, down down, left, right, left, right, b, a start or in this case enter) and all these settings are basically changing your resolution and fps. This is a setting that should be accessible not locked behind a code. it's also very unclear as to how to access these settings. 4K support would be nice also but that might be a hardware…

Awesome product! Better than I expected.

This device is amazing. I was astounded by the quality after connecting it and using it to stream my switch using my laptop. It can seriously compete with high tier brands but at a cheaper price. Affordable for those who want to start streaming but have a limited budget. Audio is great too. Would definitely recommend this to people who want to play their switch on their pc.

Just works, super simple.

I love how I can now use my consoles to stream to my Discord friends. I have a personal problem of not touching video games unless I stream them so this is getting me to actually use my consoles more. The super long USB cable is nice, and my PC is next to the entertainment center, so it reaches my HDMI switch and I don’t have to move or unplug anything else. It works as stated, it’s driverless and you can use any software to capture it, but I just use the Genki Arcade software. It’s a dead simple program that has one purpose and that’s to show a video feed from Shadowcast. Only has two settings: volume and video Quality/Performance, and the Quality mode looks great with practically no input lag on my PC. It’s overtly simple, and that’s a good thing, because there’s no settings or configuration to mess around with and figure out, it just works! It’s a very lightweight program too, so why waste resources streaming from another program like OBS on Discord when this does the job? The only thing I wish was the software had an installer; when you download it, it’s a runnable executable, so I personally put it in a custom Program Files folder and made a Start Menu shortcut but I wish an installer did this. Minor complaint, but if the goal is to have this work and run, quick and seamless, Genki did a wonderful job.
