Review date Dec 2004. This is a great product. I attach it to my laptop to turn it into a media center. I have hooked up my 8 year old camcorder and have hooked into cable. Installation is staightforward. The software is adequate. I have made digital backups to some of my family videos to store on an external backup drive. TV recording works great too! Making a DVD, no problem. It is not as staight forward to record a clip of the material and email it but with patience it can be done. I was able to purchase for $150 minus a $50 rebate for a net of $100 in Sept 04. I've seen this product now at Compusa for $150.

Overall Satisfactory Purchase

by YJ on 9/13/2004

Installation – No problem by following the instruction. TV – Pretty good picture quality with cable signal. Easy to use interface. PVR – Functions are quite basic. Remember to turn off “daylight saving changes” in time setting when you use scheduled recording. The quality of recording is very good. Manual – A bit too simple. Overall – 4 out of 5
