Review Date: 09/06/13
Cons: -Cheap feeling construction-Software is barebones

Pros: Easy to use, quality is fine. Software is very simplistic but works well enough.
Pretty great product that worked well. Out of the box, setup was quick and painless.

Review Date: 09/02/13
Cons: none

Pros: Inexpensive
Does what the box says. Works well. Bought on sale

Review Date: 01/12/13
Cons: none

Pros: does the job
Does what it says on the website, and does it very well.

Review Date: 12/18/12
Cons: Not user friendly at all to install. (Useless install interface)Better software also included but without any licence or serial number.Hard to make MPEG4 works good.

Pros: Works with Win 7 64 BitsVideo and Audio are encoded with correct quality (MPEG2)Basic software included
Good for the price, but if you have some much money to spend I am sure that you can get a better product. This is not a professional product.

Cons: Quit working after a week

Pros: Great quality when it was working, easy to setup
I bought one of these, when it worked at first the quality was really good, and the setup was painless, so I bought another one to run two inputs into vMix Video Mixer. Then one day....no video...just a pretty light on the unit. The other one did the same thing few days later.I RMA'd the one that was still under NCIX 30 day return, the other one I'm still waiting to hear back from Diamond from an email I sent a week ago. I heard their support is non-existent, guess I'm gonna find out.

Review Date: 01/14/12
Cons: Had problems with it locking up while recording streams as well as the audio just turning into a screeching noise.

Pros: Small. Has basic software.
This product requires some work and at this point I would not recommend it. Even when not recording I would sometimes experience the problems described in the cons. I also tried the product on 2 different computers to be sure it wasn't the computer causing the issues.

Review Date: 12/23/11
Cons: Problems with Drivers for the unit.

Pros: The price of the unit seemed good.
I had problems installing this on my XP SP3 machine.Googling this confirms that that XP SP3 is a problem for the drivers. I spent quite a bid of time on trying to make this thing work. It would never install properly.

Review Date: 05/21/11
Cons: Bundled software is garbage, capture software is extremely limited

Pros: Does the job, has S-Video input
For entry level stuff this device works alright. Using a variety of other software will get you what you need, but the included software is garbage. It comes with Ulead video editing software which was designed for Windows XP and does not capture without interruption.The included capture software that is Diamond proprietary software is very limited. It works and takes some getting used to, but the codecs used are pretty weak and it doesn't explain resolutions of each setting, etc. To Diamond's credit, the included instruction booklet can be helpful for novices.This does the job for a cheap price, but I would recommend spending a bit more cash to get something that works a lot better and has better software.

I purchased this product for Christmas thinking that I would be able to convert our family VHS movie collection to DVD. I installed the software (on my Vista Home Premium computer), and then took the output of our VHS player and tried to record the first VHS. At first, the recording was going well and I thought that this is going to be great. Then after I recorded the first VHS, I went to check on the computer how it recorded, and found that the first 15 minutes were not recorded. I downloaded the latest drivers and tried it again and again, each time having a different problem. The recorded video would skip to the point that I just gave up on this computer. I installed it onto another computer running XP, and got the same results. I tried getting technical support from the manufacturer, only to have no return e-mails or phone calls. This is not a high quality product, and I spent a lot of time trying to get it to work. I am very unsatisfied

For the money this item works as it claims it does. I use this to restore a movie on a VHS that was made some fifty years ago. And now there on DVD's for another fifty.

Cons: none, but you won't require the video editing software of the product one-up-from-here in price, just find open source applications

Pros: price-point is for the win, both s-video and RCA, Vista finds this instantly, software is standard
using this to record myself playing Final Fantasy on my PS2, the video compression is high for mp4, and individual screen captures were awesome quality

Review Date: 10/19/09
Thought my original capture device was bad so bought this. Still didn't work. Thought it might be that it was not compatible with my USB. Bought a cheap PCI USB card and now it works but only on thr One Touch software that came with it. Do like the record button on the device which makes it handy when I can't see the screen.

Review Date: 07/10/09
Wow, this thing works absolutely fine for me. It does exactly what I was looking for, the ability to easily capture quality video from my DVD player. The included Ulead program makes editing and arranging my vid clips a piece of cake. Heck, I couldn't be happier with the performance of this device.

Review Date: 04/07/09
Cons: None.

Pros: Handy little gadget, many potential uses.Compact.Easy to use.Good price.Works on Vista x64
I bought this to transfer some old VHS tapes into digital format so I could play them on my WDTV. It works great once you get used to the controls. Picture and sound quality is good also. The capture software has limited capabilities but that's what video editing programs are for. Be forewarned that selecting "avi" as your output file type results in raw avi files which are HUGE. Since the unit uses standard RCA inputs, I can imagine plenty of uses for this device for capturing video from camcorders, gaming consoles, etc.Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend it.

Review Date: 03/07/09
Cons: quality not as great as hauppauge tuners

Pros: easy to use
Be sure to have the USB plugged in as well as any video/audio source as well when you first install it using the included CD. Used on Vista Basic 32-bit OS.Don't like that I can only use included presets and can't make a custom template for setting bitrates for record modes.

Review Date: 10/20/08
I have over 30 years electronics experience and these type of stuff are almost part of my daily hobbies and projects, this device is poorly designed and limited to its software, I connected over 10 different video sources like X10 products or other wireless video outputs and only couple of them poorly worked. Its waste of money.

Review Date: 08/21/08
Cons: quality of video could be better but for the price it is ok

Pros: ok quality for the price not for hd obviouslyhas a button to push to recordyou can choose from a bunch of formats to record to
overall it is a great product for those who want to record off of there ps2 or xbox 360 for example onto there pc with sound and you can use it to transfer the video from camcorder's that use tapes if the camcorder has a av and audio plug. Also check for reviews around the internet for more information on this product.
