Last time I tried Razer it created a virtual audio device. Never had an issue with my music player, because it is set to take audio from my non-virtual one. I think it is very good for what it is!

Fraps increments the fps cap while recording according to increments of the record at fps. So if you record at 60 fps it will start there and if the system can handle the processing usage of the game and recording well enough it will increment the play at fps cap to 120 fps then 180, etc. up until it hits the game fps cap.
If I relied solely on ShadowPlay to record I would probably turn some settings up but at the moment that software is still missing a few features so I'm unable to do so.
Last time I tried FRAPS it would lock to the game to whatever framerate it was recording on. (I think there were two options, maybe 30FPS/60FPS) Was messy for certain games, especially those that have variable framerates and have timings based on the framerate.
I have my HD PVR, works alright for my purposes. Never liked FRAPS, but I have not tried shadowplay yet..
