    But, as StormDave says, unless you need the SD analog component and XLR audio ingest, the NX Express will do you fine as they are identical when it comes to the realtime playout to an external monitor in both SD and HD.
    I was going with the price from the GG site :)

    can i use dv capture with either of these?
    will they work like the storm card where i be able to use an external monitor and not have the delay.pricewise how much is each.
    thanks
    The difference between the NX and the SP is the type of I/O that you get.
    The SP adds component (SD) inputs, XLR auido I/O, and RS422 device control. Think of it this way: If you are using Beta SP get the SP.

    Both cards capture DV the same way.
    Both cards output to an external monitor without delay.

    DVCapture works well with the SP :)

    SP includes EDIUS Broadcast and component capture in (standard definition only) or the more expensive SP SDI (standard def SDI connection)...

    The SP is like the replacement for the REX
    While the NX is the replacement for the Storm. Both do HD.

    The SP is great for people who still have Beta SP sources or even other component SD sources, but I would go with the NX. It's an awesome card. Very stable and a quality product.

    NX works with DVCapture, not sure about SP...it should work, theoretically.

    The price difference is a kind of big, the SP (non SDI) is about $3,500 while the NX is about $1,400.

    And no you will not get any lag with either cards. Perfect sync just like the Storm.

    One cool thing about the NX is that, besides doing HD, it also can act as a regular firewire pass through device, so you can use other OHCI applications (Such as Premiere CS3) to pass through out the component output (DV only)...also you can capture to Canopus HQ/Lossless from the analog source instead of capturing to DV only like the Storm did.

    Check canopus.com for comparisons between both products.
