The Video Capture device works well out of the box and does a great job of capturing video from VGA and S-Video sources. The video editing software is CPU intensive and often slowed my system 2 Gh/500 MB RAM system down to a crawl.

-Anonymous quote

For the low price, I was skeptical that this unit would be of any value. But I relied on another review and decided to buy one. Once in a while, a a computer device truly delights and exceeds expecations. The Turtle Beach Video Advantage USB did just that for me. I have a fancy Pinnacle Systems Movie Box converter and associated software that was frequently dropping frames when converting Hi-8 videos. The Turtle Beach unit and associated software is much is simpler & easier to use, more dependable, and most importantly I have had ZERO DROPPED FRAMES after converting 10 hours of video to-date. If you are transferring analog or digital videos from a camcorder or player, this unit is a valuable investment.
