SimpleScreenRecorder vs OBS Studio opinions
Its SUPER simple to setup. Just select where to record, select the file path and the other settings are fine as is.
Setup is far easier than OBS, i love it!! (Still use OBS for live streaming..)
obs only has screencasting as one if its many features, not the main application
It doesn't live stream like OBS but it's straightforward, fast and easy to use for recording videos of the screen.

Although it has not OBS's feature set, it does allow streaming to Twitch and Youtube.

Bandicam vs OBS Studio opinions
It has a giant watermark shoved in the middle of the screen
It is easy to use, but it is Shareware so you can only record up to 10 minutes and there is a big watermark
It may not have much benefits compared to OBS. But it is a classic. Remember the days of videos with the Bandicam watermark at the top?
It captures screen is a very easy way. No conflicts with GeForce or any other device.

Streamlabs Desktop vs OBS Studio opinions
I could never get OBS Studio to work, and it slowed down my Windows PC terribly. Streamlabs is a fantastic alternative.
Best streaming software ever. Activity feed, donations, stream drafts, and plenty of other features.
A bit hard to understand an interface, but it still very convinient.
Steamlabs OBS is too "kitchen-sinky" with basic streaming functionality and does not offer or allow for the inclusion of advanced functionality for advanced users.
Use "Lightstream" or original OBS instead of "Streamlabs".
It's the same functionalities of OBS studio Official, but with the functionalities of StreamLabs...
