Performance

This is a really cool little device, extremely easy to use and the click-to-record button is surprisingly useful. Quality is ok, there tends to be a slight scanning effect at higher resolutions but it's not bad. I do notice an increasing A/V delay for longer recordings. My biggest issue though is the lack of a timer in the recording software - you have to be present to end the recording. Overall though, it performs well, especially for the price, and is ideal for transferring home videos etc to the computer (I've been copying old VHS tapes, both PAL and NTSC).

-Pete quote

Overall, this got the job done that I bought it for but not with the one-touch ease that I expected. First, the driver installation (XP/SP3) was filled with errors. It couldn't find several of the windows video dll's and other files. I had to manually search and locate these. Once the software was in, the manual supplied is painfully thin. Using it is a product of discovery. Finally, there's a lot about video that I didn't know but had to learn to end up with decent quality video conversions.

Easy to Use!

by Reme on 12/14/2008

Received this item very quickly. Easy to use out of the box. Have used it with both my computer (to transfer/burn DVD from VHS tape/VCR) and a TV monitor (to monitor outdoor wireless security camera). Very user-friendly. Would recommend this product very highly. Read More
