It works for me.
on 20 March 2011
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.
