    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.

    I saw that this worked with a Mac which is why I bought it. Unfortunately, it barely works with a Mac. Just comes with a app/driver that plays video in a window out of sync with the source and no controls other than record or stop. On the Windows side it comes with software that you can do more with but I still had to use different software from the web in order to make it work for me the way I wanted.

    I even emailed the company who makes this asking if there is any software they know of that works with it on a Mac (OS X 10.8), but that was a week ago and still haven't received a reply. I downloaded a few capture programs for the Mac but they don't recognize the device. Even when I did try to capture with it on the Mac the program crashed after 14 minutes of capture. This is on a brand new Mac also.

    So in my opinion if you have a mac, I would not suggest you don't buy this. On Windows it works ok for me using a program called Debut Video Capture from NCH. It lets me pause the recording so I can cut out commercials from old video tapes I'm converting, which the included software doesn't allow. I couldn't even get the install CD to play properly on my Mac super drive. I had to drag the info from it off onto a USB stick on another computer.

    As for B&H, I was very pleased with speed of shipping and the price. No complaints there.

        Works perfectly. Plug a camcorder or vcr into the box, connect to PC and capture any or all from your tape media to your hard drive. Software included works equally as well.

              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!!!

                        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.

                                    Could never get the software to recognize my camcorder video, but was able to use my own and it workded. Wish I could just buy the hardware without the software.

                                          I was hoping this would plug-and-play with Premiere Pro. But this requires installing some other software that I would never use normally. I suppose the unit works all right, but a direct-top-Premiere would have been sweet.

                                              loaded software no problem set up and loaded video from camcorder did this with no problem. I have the recording now on my mac. Just having trouble burning video to dvd, seems to be a problem with formating the video recording but i should be able to figure this out. product does what it said it would.

                                                  I converted my first video tape yesterday. It popped into Sony Vegas Pro with just a mouse click. Did exactly what I expected. I compared the original tape with the MPG file, and my eye could not detect any loss of quality.

                                                      This Ion was simple enough to use. Just install the software, plug it in and away you go. We use it to copy old VHS tape to digital video to be edited on a computer. It has done everything we wanted.
