Pros: Sound quality is great. There are so many features. The battery life on the phones seem to be doing just fine, but honestly, they sit on their docks about 99% of the time. Large display makes it easy to read without picking up the phone.
Cons: No cons after owning these for eight months. They work great for me. I can put a phone anywhere in my house, and the phone stays connected. Works great for my VOIP service. The answering machine works great. The build of the phones are all sturdy and don't feel cheap. The handsets are lightweight and comfortable to use.
Other Thoughts: To be honest, I have not tried out many of the features this phone has, but definitely plan to use such as link-to-cell. The large message light the lights up on top of all phones does not bother me like others. The blink rate is very slow, so that it isn't annoying.
This replaced my old Panasonic phone/answeringmachine that still worked, but was just outdated in its quality and features. I am quite happy that I got this product, one of the best purchases of the year.
This review is from: DIAMOND VC500 One Touch Video Capture, Edit and Burn to DVD USB 2.0 Adapter
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.
This review is from: elgato 10020840 Video Capture for Mac, PC, iPod and iPhone
Pros: Simple hardware/software to use. I own the Honestech 7.0 Deluxe, and the Diamond VLC video Capture. The Elgato far surpasses the others in hardware/software that works. The other two kept losing too many frames, and the video was unwatchable. I tried using the Elgato device with the Honestech software, and still too many frames were being lossed. The Elgato software worked better.
Cons: The Elgato software has very little settings available which is why I dropped an egg. Atleast I could pick the 16:9 ratio so I can watch it better on my TV and computer.
Other Thoughts: I had some problems at the beginning, but just decided to not running anything on my computer while it was capturing the video, and this fixed my problems.
If you are wanting to capture video from VHS, then consider this product over the Diamond VLC and the Honestech.
