    I had a bunch of old VHS tapes of work from high school and college. I wanted them digitized. This product is insanely simple to use and works perfectly. I use this product on my MacBook. I did not use the included editing software. It digitizes to an .mov file so all files will work in Final Cut, Premiere or iMovie.

    LONG STORY MADE SHORT.. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CONVERTER! BOUGHT IT TWO WEEKS AGO, THINKING IT WOULD BE SIMPLE TO USE AND WOULD CARRY ALL NECESSARY SOFTWARE.. WRONG! FIRST, MPEG4 AND OTHER FORMATS ARE UNAVAILABLE UNLESS YOU UPGRADE FOR 60$. IT COMES WITH A POOR ARRAY OF LAYOUTS. THE DECENT 2 GOOD LAYOUTS,+ OTHER FEATURES ARE AVAILABLE... IF YOU UPGRADE TOO. THEN.. THERE'S A PIE GRAPHIC THAT STARTS AT 100% SPACE. AFTER ONE RECORDING, IT WAS SHOWING HALF OF THE SPACE GONE... 50%. I CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND WHAT DO I GET? A SNOTTY ARROGANT KID THAT ACCUSED ME OF DOWNLOADING THE SOFTWARE ILLEGALLY. I ARGUED WITH HIM, AND TOLD HIM I PURCHASED THE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE AT A STORE. HE SAID IT WAS FRAUDULENT. THEN, HE ASKED ME FOR MY PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ORDER TO SEND ME THE "AUTHENTIC" SOFTWARE VIA EMAIL, ACCORDING TO HIM.. LATER, I RECEIVE THE LINK TO DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE.. AND WHAT A SURPRISE.. IT WAS THE SAME EXACT ONE!!! NO COMMENT!!!

      Firstly I've only tried video game systems such as Nintendo, Sega, 3DO content. This works perfectly, especially when used with PowerDirector 12. It worked without any lag so well, I was able to play my 3DO Game system by watching my computer as it was recording. My PC is around 4 years old. Very easy to get it going, very happy with this product.

      This product is super easy to use. I have been using this device at the non-profit that I work at to turn old vhs in to digital content that I can edit into short videos.

      It does what it said it would. So far I am happy with it.

      The quality of the video is ok. It mostly depends on the condition of the VHS that I am converting.

      Pro: S Video input, cables included, small form factor, good price

      Con: included video capture software EZcap for MAC displays halting video during capture recording which makes capture monitoring a little more difficult

        Comments about ION Audio VIDEO 2 PC MKII Digital Video Converter:

        So far everything is working very well. It was easy to upload the drivers on Mac Book Pro. The software interface is pretty easy to figure out and the quality of the raw video I recorded from my Sony mini DV camera is outstanding. It saved a copy of the recorded content straight to a folder of my choice on the HD. It was super easy to open the video using Quick Time and see the results. I hope it keeps the same level of quality. This is well worth the price since it is so expensive to get these videos converted at a vendor like Costco or some film conversion store. Go for it. Save all of your old tapes as an .mpeg file and then archive them on an external HD for safe keeping.

        The Video 2 PC device and EZ Video Converter software capture video from a VHS tape as a file onto your computer flawlessly. EZ Video Converter includes simple editing to delete portions you don't want, but it doesn't save the edited file. So instead I use Windows Moviemaker to edit, and Windows DVD maker to burn a DVD.

                              I have been struggling for over three months (excluding the holidays) with the Video 2 PC device. I have attempt to archive the same analog VHS tape several dozen times, using both a PC and MacBook Pro (as indicated in the instructions the device is compatable with both). I am running Windows XP on the PC and iOS 10.6.8 on the Mac. I have swapped out all the cables at least twice (including S-cable) and tried difference VCRs (which are not easy to come by these days). STILL EZCap (the software that comes with Video 2 PC) is useless. I have been able to capture a few minutes of the VHS tape through Quicktime Player (Under "File" using "Record New Movie"). Consistently the program has stopped recording after a few minutes, though never at the same point in the tape. I have never had such a horrible and frustrating experience in any way with Mac; however, iMovie will not recognize the Video 2 PC device either. I contacted the seller (B & H Photo), and their only suggestion was to make sure the cables were connected properly. Really? I have now moved on to the manufacturer for assistance, and on their website I am told the device is no longer for sale. This has been a nightmare. I would STRONGLY recommend you to AVOID this product and the on-line retailer that sold it.

                              I bought this about 2 years ago to convert some old videos and now I am using this device to capture my live 'security-camera' images by 3rd part software. Unlike some other capture devices I had, the drivers and even the software were still easily to find on the official website, so installation on Windows 7 went flawlessly, which is great. Only downside I have is that the S-video images are in black-and-white, so I only use the Yellow RGB for video.

                                  Works great- except.. to get a high res copy in H.264, a 1 1/2 hour tape took up about 50 GB of space. But I guess that's the name of the game.

                                        I have over 30 Hi8 tapes that needs to be converted over to CD. I installed the software according to instructions on a Windows 7 PC. So far I have converted 2 tapes and it works just fine. The only reason i gave it 4 star instead of 5 is because the software is not as intuitive as I would like. Maybe is just me. It also ask you to upgrade. for simple capture and save, it works great.
