Running on: 2008 MacBook Pro, Mac OS 10.6
Purchased: October 2011

We bought a VCAP800 to transfer a few precious or otherwise unobtainable items from VHS to MP4 format. We'd not that many transfers to do, so we wanted something fairly cheap, and from the Amazon reviews the VCAP800 looked like a good balance of price, quality and reliability.

I've been using the VCAP800 for about a week now, and I'm VERY pleased with it. I've transferred 6 or 7 programmes of up to 90 minutes. Transfers are reliable, quality is not-bad (a bit of snow and aliasing on the picture, plus highlights can look washed out), mind you, so far I've left it on the default settings. However, I can report that picture quality is much better than that produced by the dedicated VHS-to-DVD recorder at my partner's work, which produced coasters 2 times out of 3 anyway. Sound quality from the VCAP is very good.

The Mac iCapture software provided "with" the device (more on that "with" in a minute) is simple and straightforward to use and understand. Playback from your video recorder appears in a little window on your computer monitor, so you can see exactly what you're getting, and you don't even need to be connected to a TV to see where you are on the tape! There's a handy option to do timed recordings, so you can leave the software to get on with the job without worrying about it filling your whole hard disk up.

There are plenty of options for changing the settings both on sound and picture recording; I haven't played with these yet.

On the default settings, iCapture converts the VHS input to Apple MOV format, and these come out quite big - I suspect partly as a result of the slightly-staticky picture quality which would defy compression.

Good service from supplier & contents contained everything required, however, I have a Mac & I think this unit has been developed primarily for Windows. Instruction booklet was next to useless & virtually unreadable without a magnifying glass. True there was a copy on the disc but that contained no more detail than the paper version which was a not very good translation of some sort. Disc was of no use whatsoever in the installation process & was out of date for my version of Snow Leopard, eventually found my way to the website to download updated driver but there was no instruction anywhere that that may be necessary. Took me several hours to install and configure, definitely not "plug & play" for the average user where a Mac is concerned. The actual operation of the device was not brilliant & for some reason the operating lights did not work. Loud background hum on sound track which was not possible to remove using the control panel.
Resultant video to DVD quality was average (but that can be for all sorts of reasons not involving the device). Would I buy it again? Probably not.

After having much trouble selecting the right encoder, it will do what you expect!

On Mac OSX, I selected the recommended >motion-jpeg< encoder, audio sync was out, I've had this problem before on PC, so I tried the DV encoders, DVC-pro & DVCpro-50, this had rock solid audio sync but expected 768 wide capture res - this device max is 720.. so result was distorted.

Choosing >>Apple Intermediate Codec<< provided excellent encoding quality and rock-solid audio sync. For a bargain price and choosing the aforementioned codec all is sweet - do this and it will save you sweat and tears!

I bought the VCAP800 for use with my MacBook and it was very easy and straightforward to get running. After installing the iGrabber software and plugging the device in I managed to get my source video up on my Mac screen with no problem. The main reason I bough the VCAP was to record video game footage from my consoles to be uploaded on the web so it was a little complicated to get working right and get the best quality image.

As another review states: The Apple Intermediate codec is the best to use with this device as it does not slow the capture speed down during recordings and provides great quality however trying to capture in HD did slow down the video feed during recording. You also have the option to capture from PAl, NTSC and SECAM devices. At 60HZ using the NTSC option there were noticeable scan lines on the recording. This is probably due to the fact that I am in a primarily PAL region but setting my console to 50HZ and choosing PAL got rid of the scan lines.

The last problem I had was solved easily for me but may cause problems for other MacBook users. When recording a small dialogue box appears saying "click here to finish recording". The dialogue box partially obscures the video and for others who want to use this device in a similar way I'm using it this may cause a problem as you cannot move the dialogue box while recording. Luckily for me I have my MacBook set up with a second screen so I just dragged my video feed there and thankfully the dialogue box remained on my other screen.
