Pros This is a great way to spend hours and hours honing your troubleshooting skills
Cons For all the poor software and hardware I have bought over the years this one wins the prize for its unique combination of time consumption and poor performance. It is right up there with its cousin at Pinnacle.
Pros Worked great for me out of box. easy to use/edit/burn a dvd. pretty much good for copying a whole tape and burning it to disk.
Cons unstable software. locks up computer. super8 connection digital only. wont read any other mpeg's. takes forever to convert files to burn dvd. Need to go into Custom setup to keep quality DVD level.
Pros Best Buy has a 30 day return policy.
Cons I used to own a DVC 80 and bought this because the 80 crashed my system every time I attempted to use it. This apparatus did no better - I have not been able to convert my VHS library - it has refused to work on all five of my computers. I will never make

Pros Not a Thing
Cons Does Not Work
Summary Neither of my two video capture programs except the one that came with the Dazzle DVC will work with it, so I was forced to try and use the packaged software. 14 attempts to capture; 14 lock and crashes. Since I bought it on Ebay I have no return rights so I'm literally going to throw it in the trash. $90 totally wasted.
Pros when it eventually works i.e. captures your video it works fine.
Cons However, getting it XP to detect it as an analogue system is hell. Also, after one installation my cd-rw disappeared from my computer and i'm still trying to get it back. try at your own risk!!!
