5 out of 5 eggs Really good card for the price. 06/02/2007

This review is from: KWorld VS-L883D X-Pert DVD Maker PCI Card

Pros: Uses Conexant CX2388x chipset and WDM drivers. It's relatively inexpensive. Supports S-video and composite input. Easy to install and use. Using a capture program that utilizes WDM drivers (NOT VirtualDub), the video quality is amazing.

Cons: Software bundle (PVR Plus or whatever) does not take advantage of capabilities of the chipset/drivers. Don't bother with it. I tried using VirtualDub instead, but even that has issues... but there is hope: VirtualVCR. See Other thoughts below. Also, feeding the audio into your soundcard via the capture card may result in low volume, so just feed it directly into your soundcard instead.

Other Thoughts: I was both pleasantly surprised and disappointed at first. I used VirtualDub and was surprised that capturing took hardly any processing power using HuffYUV at 29.97fps and PCM at 44.1/stereo (I have an Athlon 2500+ with 512MB memory). The disappointing part came when I tried to capture the output from my PS2 (composite out). It was somewhat jerky, as if frames were being dropped (although none were), and it looked like sometimes the even/odd fields got swapped somehow, or something. Also, I could not capture at resolutions higher than 320x240. I did some research on www.doom9.org (check out the capture guides, lots of really good info), and found out that it's all because VirtualDub uses VfW drivers. There's another app, VirtualVCR (virtualvcr.sf.net), which utilizes the WDM drivers that you actually install for the card. So I tried that, and man it looks pretty freakin good. I'm excited, going to tinker with other settings now. I highly recommend this card, esp. at $20...
