I bought this unit to use on a laptop. I was a little worried about the display quality when going to full screen. As it turns out the display quality is great! The laptop has a 14" screen and it was like watching a 14" TV. The seperate line for the audio was not a problem, just plugged it in to the mic port on the laptop. WinXP gave the problem as it sets the mic port to disable by default. Once I enabled it everything was fine. Setup and installation was a snap, except for the above. A quick trip to Hauppauge's support site took care of that. The software is simple to use. I am very happy I didn't wait on the ATI version (which at the time I bought this, still didn't have XP drivers).
