Pros

It pays to read their short 4 page instructions first, including the faq's at the end. They even give you a reference to their website to translate that font into something more readable. Developer was remarkably helpful in knocking down a few of my d...  Read More

Followed directions exactly and solved problem. This product is inexpensive and it worked.

Digitizer is inexpensive and fairly problem free, other than the serial number readability issue. Runs windows 10 64-bit with 32 gigs of ram. Runs on an intel core 2 duo t6600 processor.

The video is uploaded in uncompressed mpg format. The audio track always syncs perfectly with the video.



Cons

The documentation isn't helpful, nor are the instruction videos. There appears to be zero support. Time consuming, quality not as good as expected.

Quality


My system runs windows 10 64-bit with 32 gigs of ram, and this video-2-pc digitizer product works extremely well on it.


A quality product, indeed, at a realistic price, backed up by superb customer service.


Now if i could only get the h264 on virtualdub to work, it would get the extra star.


I was very satisfied with the product and service received.


It get's a high rating because the product works flawlessly and after you get past the software headaches, it is very intuitive...  Read More

Packaging/appearance


Worked right out of the box with my windows 10 laptop which rarely works with anything.

Competitiveness


If you follow set up instructions provided you will have zero probs installing.


So if my math is correct you should be able to record and store up to 440 hours of vhs video on a 1tb hd.


Whether there is a superior product on the market, i don't know.

    With earlier versions of windows it was a simple matter of plugging the camera into the pc but windows 10 does not allow that - for some very strange reason.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Loading the software on the pc was straightforward and the menu appears easy to follow.

    Included are 3 pages of double-sided documentation which may sound intimidating but 2 pages are faq which you can ignore if all goes well and 2 pages are for the back up obs studio capture software which you can ignore if arcsoft showbiz works for you.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    So there was really only the 2 pages of the core kit install which needed to be followed which has 3 steps: install usb driver, install video capture software, connect capture device.

    Within a number of minutes i had live video from my vcr visible in the showbiz capture window on my laptop with a big 'capture' button prominently displayed on the lower part of the interface.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I pressed it to start and stop my recording and did my first successful video capture.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The arcsoft capture software can be sensitive to breaks of static between videos and i found initially that it would stop recording during some of these breaks.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Apparently the copyright protection is so sensitive that it sees odd video variances as formal protection and shuts down recording.
