4.0 out of 5 stars It works for me. 20 Mar. 2011
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
Following mixed reviews for all VHS to DVD converters, I tried this one.

Everything you need is in the box, software CD, usb converter, RCA leads and connectors (also S-video), usb extension lead and SCART connector.

I'm a novice working with video, but found this very easy to set up. There is a quick start guide which is plain and simple to understand.

I only wanted to do straight conversions, no editing or anything. There is an 'easy' mode for this, the software wizard guides you through it.

I used a laptop with a duel core mobile pentium CPU, hardly cutting edge but it worked fine, no hiccups. Windows 7 32 bit O/S. The process of recording and burning a DVD worked first time. After recording a 1.5 hour video, the DVD prep and burn took a further 30 minutes. I used the RCA leads connected to the VCR with the SCART connector.

The end result was perfectly acceptable with the sound good as well. The quality of the VHS tape will never match a modern DVD version. Overall, I am very pleased with the results.

Format:CD-ROM
Bought this to transfer old family VHS and S-VHS tapes to DVD. It's a bit of a faff at first but the joy of 'restoring' old 30 year old family movies are priceless.

The challenges anyone will have with this are:
* Getting your VCR / source set up correctly, and located next to your PC / laptop
* Manage detailed settings (not complicated to do) on the software once installed and make sure you set the source as PAL for the UK.
* Checking you have sufficient HD space on your computer to store the converted files
* Remember you have to physically play a full tape to transfer it. This means 10 * 3 hour VHS tapes are of course 30 hours of playing time (no way around this!)

Pros:
+ Software itself is easy to install and set up
+ Main Cables you need are provided (but not S-VHS or 3.5 audio jacks)
+ you can set a record timer on the software so once you hit play on the VCR for a 3-4 hour tape the PC recording will stop automatically
+ One running easy, reliable hassle free conversion of source to PC (as MPG files)

Cons:
- You have to learn to use that old VCR or Hi8 camera again; do you have a working remote for it too? :)
- Software won't detect if the source has stopped (e.g. tape finished, stuck etc)
- Once a transfer is complete, the software will go into a 'sleep' whilst it renders (converts) the captured source into the target format on your PC. This can take a long time depending on your PC spec.
- Whilst the software is rendering, you can't do anything else with the software (other programmes unaffected but your PC will run slow as it is kept busy)
- Software won't (and doesn't really claim to) upscale your recorded source to better image quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Perfect 30 Mar. 2012
By Bronn
Format:CD-ROM
The basic idea behind this package is that you can covert camcorder cassettes, VHS tapes,
audio cassettes and LPs to modern formats such as CD, DVD, Blu-Ray and various Digital formats.

SETUP
The first thing you do is install the software on your PC (only supports Windows XP, Vista & 7/8).
After software installation is complete, connect the vidbox to your PC via the included USB cable.
The first thing i wanted to test was VHS. It's better to use this with a laptop rather than a desktop
because otherwise you'll be lugging the VHS player upstairs like i did. You connect the included RCA
cable (yellow=video and red/white=audio) from the VHS to the vidbox Afterwards you insert a tape
into the VHS player, but i had forgot where i put the bloody things so spent the night in my loft.

VHS TEST
The next morning i found the old box of "memories" and inserted a random VHS tape into the player.
The video began playing on-screen inside the program window. Within a few clicks the program began
capturing and burning the video to my blank DVD disc while it played on-screen. After the burn process
had completed i gave it a quick watch and there it was, pretty fantastic. The quality was really good,
mostly because the VHS tape was under 110mins. For longer videos you will need to tweak a few options
to get the right balance between size and quality, but for anything under 110mins the one-click, Easy
Record format will be able to provide the best quality. You can also save files to your hard drive where
space won't matter as much compared to a disc, that process should be much quicker because there is no
need to burn it to a disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant device and easy software! 16 Aug. 2011
Format:CD-ROM
The main reason i bought this product was that i found others devices/software such as easycap hard to get working. I did have a lot of problems with drivers on other devices and for weeks i tried to get those devices working properly but i couldn't. Then i found this product and it solved all my issues! It is very easy to use and the software that comes with it is really good and simple. I truly believe that even an amateur on computers can handle it. In my opinion this is the absolutely best product for converting VHS to DVD. No doubt!

However i encountered one problem when i tried to install the device for the first time. I have Win7 Pro 64-bit and followed the "quick start guide" (included in the box) to install drivers but the software couldn't find the device when i plugged in to my pc. But i solved the problem almost immediately. I just updated the drivers manually from the CD that comes with the product and it worked fine after that.

My conclusion:
+ Nice device and good software
+ Very easy to use

- Some install issues with drivers
