Pros:

  • Plug and play.
  • Competitive pricing .
  • Slimline and sleek design.
  • 1080p 60fps footage looks great.
  • YUY2 colour.

Cons:

  • No HDR passthrough or support.
  • 1080p 60fps recording and passthrough limit.
  • No VRR support.
  • The white LED at the front can be annoying .
  • Build quality is OK, but not great (it’s entirely plastic).

KitGuru says: The Signal HD60 offers a budget, reliable option for streamers and although we miss out on some other features like HDR and VRR support, if you need that, you can opt for the Signal 4K 30.
