Very pleased with the Ezcap 116 and the supplied capturing and editing software.
The installation; using the instructions supplied was quick and easy and worked first time with no problems. Video capture worked perfectly and sound quality is as good as the original donor compact VHS tape. The supplied Arcsoft ShowBiz 3.5 editing software works brilliantly; it is basic, but does what it has to, to produce a video file quickly and easily. I already have Serif Movie Plus 5 editing software but I will not be using it because Showbiz 3.5 does the job far more easily, with less complications and also but more importantly, far quicker. For example after video capture and editing stages had been completed, a 32 minute converted video took more than 12 hours to produce a standard MPEG4 file using Serif Movie Plus 5. The same file took only 62 minutes to produce using Showbiz 3.5 and there was absolutely no difference in the produced video file qualities.
I would definitely recommend this piece of kit to any one that, like me, wants to convert and preserve precious memories from fragile 20+ year old VHS tapes, and at a price that's less than 3 packets of cigarettes these days I think excellent value for money.
