2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked better than Honestech

Cons: Still dropped too many frames

Other Thoughts: I used this to capture VHS video. Just too many frames dropped on my home movies to be watchable. Since then I bought the Elgato Card, and have little to no dropped frames.

I don't know how well this device does for other capture scenarios.

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: It works as intended. Software is ok, but not stellar. Good enough to get the job done.

Cons: Would like more options for compression.
Older computers have hard time keeping up with the data.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Product works as expected.

Cons: I'm giving this product only 1 egg because of rebate issues: i.e., don't count on getting the rebate fulfilled. It's been 15 weeks and no sign of it yet. Tried requested a status | they're web site complied and said an email was sent with an update on the status | email never received.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's ok

Pros: Easy to use, cheap, ok for low quality cameras.

Cons: Not the greatest quality or software, but for the price pretty hard to complain.

If you have a 720p or better camera, go for a real video capture card not a USB device.

Other Thoughts: Ended up buying a black magic professional video capture card.

1 out of 5 eggsworks OK

Pros: does record my old Hi 8 tapes so the concept is sound
better than another brand I tried

Cons: either the software is horrible or the hardware is bad quality as the quality of the recording is disappointing

Other Thoughts: I can still play my Hi 8 camcorder on TV and get a way better video than what I get with this recording so I do not think its my source(camcorder)

1 out of 5 eggsAwful Do not buy

Pros: IF it works than you can convert VHS to DVD...again, IF it works.

Cons: Diamond says on the product, Will work for Win 7... This is not correct in 100% of all cases. I own 3 different Win 7 machines. 1 of which I built myself. I tried installing this device with its software/drivers on all three. Nothing happened. The software would open, the product would light up but I could not get the image to show up. So then I purchased 3 RCA 2 to 1 adapters. This still didn't work. After I called Diamond they said there was nothing else they could do. Newegg was nice enough to take the product back but when they say no UPC code (because I sent it in for a Mail in Rebate, they sent it back) I called Diamond asking what happened to the Mail in Rebate since it had been over 6-10 weeks. They said they haven't even processed it yet. I said could you send it back so I could get my money back from Newegg. They said "OK no problem." Nothing happened again. Called them for the 2nd time and was put on hold for 25 mins. Then I sent them an email and they said they could not find my information. I am totally and utterly discussed in the customer service of this company. I will never purchase anything from them again (Diamond,n not Newegg). Please, if you are thinking of going with a device like this, go to a different company.
