3 out of 5 eggsA good capture if you're on a budget

Pros: Low Price. Easy to setup. Does a great job for the money you pay.

Cons: Video quality is not what you would get from a higher priced capture devices.

Other Thoughts: Don't let the negative reviews fool you. You won't be getting the absolute best video quality. However if you're looking for an entry-level capture device, this is the perfect device to get you started.

1 out of 5 eggsBad quality

Pros: The quality is better then easy cap but it is stil bad enough where i was just as happy with a cheaper capture method. I would go all for hauppage which is what I am doing now once i find the best priced model for what I need. Not good enough for youtube videos IMO...

Cons: Bad quality

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Easy to connect and setup

Cons: Horrible picture quality. Color is too saturated. Contrast is too high. Tried all different settings and it improves to the equivalent of a copy of a copy of a VHS tape. Try a different brand or an internal card.
