1 out of 5 eggsNot as advertised

Pros: Package arrived in good condition

Cons: Item was advertised with a photo showing free upgrade from the supplied version 14 to version 15. The instructions to obtain such an upgrade do not work, but you do get "offers" to upgrade the software for a hefty fee to version 17. I am disappointed with Newegg's resolution suggestion that I contact the supplier. I did. Other purchasers have had the same experience

5 out of 5 eggsA Necessity for Video Editors Without Firewire Ports On Their PC

Pros: Ordered this mainly for the MovieBox as I already have my Editing Suite of preference. The Box is the only one that I've found that uses Firewire-in and USB-out for video capture and at a reasonable price. Needed it for use on my laptop as most laptops made in the last few years no longer have Firewire ports. As a couple of other reviewers mentioned, I just loaded the Drivers for the StudioBox, then plugged everything in. So far I've captured several clips from 3 different cameras in Standard Definition_16:9 as '.avi' files. The box is instantly recognized by the editing program which also remotely controls the tape mechanism on the camera. So far it has worked flawlessly and the captures are pristine in quality. I highly recommend this product to anyone with similar circumstances. My laptop is a PC with Windows 7 Home OS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Was shipped securely in the Retail Packaging which was also securely padded in the shipping box. Received shipment in a timely manner as always when ordering from Newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsFalse advertising

Pros: The product did work, but this is not version 15, it is 14 and good luck getting a hold of customer service.

Cons: Hours spent trying to get the paid for, and advertised software. Costumer service at Corel simply says we don't support the product. Horrible costumer service.

Other Thoughts: I always thought companies were legally bound to deliver the product advertised.. Very frustrating.

5 out of 5 eggsPinnacle Studio 15 using 710-USB

Pros: Was only $30. The 710-USB works fine with Pinnacle Studio 15 or Roxio Creator 2010 Pro

Cons: Video freezes, see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Capture failed every time, because my USB Wireless Mouse and Bluetooth was interfering. The video would "freeze" but the sound was just fine. If you have the same problem see if your other USB devices are the cause.

1 out of 5 eggsOld and Unusable with Win7+

Pros: Nothing to really speak of unless I had a machine it worked on.

Comes with an older version of Pinnacle Studio that works with Win 7.0 but you cannot upgrade it without paying more for the product than you bought the device for.

Cons: Product fails on capture every time.

Very disappointed with this device. Wanted to capture old VHS and CVHS to digital. No luck.

Cheap plastic made in China.

Other Thoughts: Been a long time since I got a lemon like this.

2 out of 5 eggswrong software with bogus upgrade coupon

3 out of 5 eggsWorks well with Vista

Pros: Worked well with Vista. No fuss installation both for the device and hardware. It reads both the analog and DV without problems. Neat little package and green screen is included. Nice touch!

Cons: No version 15

Other Thoughts: Although it comes with the upgrade code for version 15, the company has chosen to not make it available. That leaves you three generations behind. New Egg should advise their clients that this is so rather than make it a selling point. It may be because this is the original listing for the product and it has not been updates since that time. It's not a huge deal but be upfront about it.

5 out of 5 eggsJust using the capture box

Pros: My old computer with the firewire interface died, so I had no way to get videos off my video cameras that used tapes. I got this package, and it works great. I use Sony Vegas for my video work, so all I did was install the drivers from the DVD. I'm not using the Pinnacle software, so this isn't a review of that. I have it connected to my laptop, and I was concerned that the USB interface wouldn't keep up with the video, but it's capturing DV and HDV just fine. I haven't tried the analog video capture yet (e.g., old VHS tapes).

Cons: Occasionally have to unplug for a few minutes to get Vegas to see the device when it starts up.

2 out of 5 eggsTo Keep-Undecided

Pros: I haven't decided if I want to install or not. See my cons.

Cons: Picture of product on Newegg shows version 15; however, what I received was version 14. This may be important to some due to what I found on Pinnacle's website which was a let-down:
