4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the time and effort
I have given this product a 4 star only because you need to allow a good afternoon to set it all up - however once you have set it up it works like a charm! I have just spent all afternoon setting up and converting my first VHS which was over an hour long. I had lunch and breaks during the process. The quality of the converted film was as good as I would expect (no...

3.0 out of 5 stars Video-2PC DIY Kit for Windows 7
Not as easy to use as made out. Plenty of useful instructions but had difficuty installing the audio driver and keeping the right one loaded the next time the devise was used. However, apart from that the kit kit 'does what it says on the tin'. Good for basic transfer to DVD but editing software too complicated for a novice like me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job perfectly but expensive, 10 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Video-2-PC DIY Video Capture Kit. For Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista & XP. Links your VCR or Camcorder to the USB port on your PC. Copy, Convert, Transfer: VHS, Video-8, VHS-C, Hi8, Digital8, & MiniDV video tapes to digital format H.264, MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 & uncompressed AVI files & burn to DVD. Tested with Windows 8.1 & Windows 7 32 & 64 bit, Vista & XP. 14 day refund offer if not completely delighted. (Electronics)
It does the job. Good software. The initial setup is a breeze but as every PC config is different, you'll undoubtedly encounter a few road blocks along the way. Not withstanding, pretty much all potential problems are covered in the detailed instructions. It will take a couple of hours to get up & running. I'm giving this 4 stars purely on price. For one cable (2 attached to each other) & software burned onto a generic cd, this cost me 55e inc postage to Dublin which is just too much.

Top quality. I am no computer expert but have managed to convert all of my VHS tapes to Disc. The after sales service i received from Tim was excellent. The " copywrite" query, i overcome by recording via" VirtualDub" When i tried using " Arcsoft Showbiz" any stutter in the video was wrongly diagnosed as the content being copywrite.
With the product and aftersales service i give this 5 stars.

I spent one & half days trying to load this video capture kit on to my Vista 32 bit laptop without success - I emailed the company & had no reply after 24hrs so rang them - Quite a helpful chap - said they had issues with their emails - had no suggestions to help load my laptop but said try a desk top or send the equipment back to them for a refund - Video-2-PC DIY Capture Kit loaded to the desk top PC within 2 hours & have now made DVD copies of old family video tapes using an old stand alone video recorder - So finally success.

The system installed easily and according to the supplier's instructions. It converted an old VHS family video to a file on the computer without much trouble and, with a bit of a struggle, I got it to burn it to a DVD. I wouldn't say the DVD burning operation performed exactly as described in the instructions supplied. However, although the DVD plays well enough on the computer it is very jerky during rapid movement when used with a separate DVD player feeding an old fashioned television. I'm still working on this; I suspect it's an "interlace problem" and some software to correct this is provided but I've yet to try it.

Simple to use, but installaltation a bit of a pain, especially messing about with drivers and having to disconnect from router and if you use a web cam which you need to disconnect first. Another slight niggle is that I can't find out how to stop the sound playing when capturing from video. Other than that it's OK for the money

Installed and had it working straight away, watched the Tutorial for editing and fond it very informative need to practise a bit but would certainly recommend this product. Even tells you how to install on XP systems which was useful as my Windows 8 L/top would not burn had to be returned so using my old system until it returns.
