A winner for h.264 encoding

on 4/13/2007

I'm not a big fan of ADS (the last ADS product I bought was a $200 paperweight), but this little USB "encoding accelerator" is terrific. I use it to encode DV-AVI files (12-14 GB per hour) to high-quality mpeg4 files at 640x480 for my iPod (about 700MB/hour). I plug the iPod into my 37" HD-LCD tv and get a very good picture. I have tried numerous low-cost software only solutions and the ADS Instant-Video-To-Go (using the included ArcSoft software) produces WAY better quality than, for example, QuickTime Pro. It is also about 7-8 times faster than QuickTime Pro. The device is a little bit buggy, though -- even though I updated the drivers and software. Sometimes the ArcSoft software stops recognizing the device, so you have to unplug it then plug it back in. Also, during one batch-encoding process, the entire computer froze, and it took a while to get everything back up and working. In spite of this, I think it's a great product for the price ($65 with shipping). Read More

beware

on 7/1/2007

I read several reviews before making the purchase for my creative zen. Installed the product and the software. Recording took as long with device pluged in as not (45 min for a 30 min video). I called customer support, which took over an hour and was then no help. They advised the conversion software would not work at all if the device was not pluged in, and had no suggestions. I reconfirmed that the software ran without the device by uninstalling the software and reinstalling with the provided CD. Still had the same issues, and am now returning the device. Read More
