Just works (almost),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VHS to DVD 5.0 HD (PC) (CD-ROM)
I bought this as a present for my dad who is very much a computer novice. He managed to install it and get it working relatively easily except for the video being monochrome and stuttery. I immediately recognised the symptoms as being due to a colour system mismatch.
My main complaint about the product is that it doesn't make it obvious that the colour system need to be set if the user is in that part of the world that is outside the United States. I worked out how to do this (using the supplied "set color system" utility) and set it to PAL-I for the UK.
I think it should allow you to select a country and set this automatically. Your average user may know PAL is required but there are many variants. I had to perform internet searches to find the right one.
Once past this issue, we produced a number of DVDs quickly and easily using the basic mode and also producted an edited video using the advanced mode.
While not a "pro" product, and videophiles may remark on the conversion quality, the product produces acceptable results and is generally pretty easy to use. I think it's worth the purchase price.
