Works like a charm. Bought it to transfer analog video from an old Sony Hi8 video camera to my PowerMac G5. Comes with all the cables needed and sets up in under 5 minutes. Capture is simple. iMovie recognizes the Pyro A/V as if it were a digital video camera. The image and sound quality are excellent. Burned to DVD, playback quality looks just as good as the source video tape (to my non-pro eye). Definitely recommend this product! It works great - at a fraction of the cost of upgrading to a new digital video camera.

Seems good so far...

The device does what it says. Works with iMovie (the reason I bought it). My only problem was that the FireWire cable packed with it didn't work. After spending quite a while trying to figure out the problem and e-mailing tech support, I replaced the cable and then it worked. When tech support replied a day later, they offer to send a new cable for free which they did. All is well now. My only complaint is that they should offer a less expensive version without the Adobe Premere Elements since it doesn't work on OSX.
