    Elgato Systems 1VC104001001 reviews

    USB Analog Video Capture Device is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 249.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described Not many bells and whistles, with minimal editing and trimming ability. But works exactly as described. Have downloaded more than 40 VHS and 8MM family video tapes in the past two weeks. Saved in my PC as MP4 files. No noticeable loss of quality. Have burned several DVDs and will backup rest on dedicated hard drive. Unless you know what is on all of your tapes, a necessary downside to this process is the need to preview original tapes to determine what is on them and what you want to convert. Then there's the time it takes to play each tape from beginning to end during conversion. But it sure beats spending +/-$ per tape to have someone else burn them to a disk.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to Use - good low res solution Important to know that this is a fairly low resolution solution to create smaller MP4 files. Bit rate is not scalable and is set around 1.5Mbps with 48k stereo audio. If you are looking to create video files that you'll be editing, this probably isn't the best solution. Good applications for this are - creating low res reference archive files for large video libraries or transferring your old analog VHS tapes so you can share w/family & friends. This system is very easy to install and use, even for the novices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! I have transferred many VHS tapes to data files with Video Capture, and it works perfectly with my Mac Mini. I used svideo and standard audio cabling from my VCR. The setup was absolutely simple, and it's great to be able to crop at beginning and end so that I can leave the recording running longer than the tape and then cut it to size without needing to open with a video editing program. My end result is DVDs, and burning the data files with title and chapter menus is easy using iDVD. The whole process takes a long time, but it runs unattended.The latest online update to Video Capture added a couple of nice features - audio level control, and video color, brightness and contrast controls. This update came out soon after I installed the version from the boxed set, and was a welcome enhancement. The A/V settings are set in a Preferences dialog box, and are remembered from one session to the next. Very nice....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy this product again and have already told friends. Have lots of vhs to transfer and decided on elgato after reading reviews of many different devices. This wasn't the cheapest nor the most expensive but had really good reviews. This thing works great and easy to use software also which needs to be downloaded but also a very easy process. Have had no problem with audio sync that was a problem with other devices I reviewed. I use the s-video line but would probably do a good with the yellow line in. Just remember you are still going to get vhs quality--nothing will change that. After transferring to my computer I use Anyburn (free) to burn to dvd--also simple to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised So far, I have copied from commercial VHS tapes and home-movie VHS-C tapes and it works just the way it is supposed to. I am transferring these into an iMac. where I use iMovie and iDVD to edit. The quality of the transferred tapes is great. I still plan to transfer from DVD's, but have not done that as yet. ... If I am absolutely sure of what I want, I will order online. However, for many purchases, I will do a lot of online research, narrow my choices to two or three, and then call in to speak with a salesperson at B&H. ... Good experiences keep me coming back ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, easy to use Bought this to convert a bunch of old family videos on VHS over to digital. Have not been disappointed. It's very easy to install & use, plus, I've encountered none of the audio synching problems I've read about with other (cheaper) brands. One quibble: Sometimes when I start recording a tape, when I come back to it a few hours later, there's no digital file of the thing anywhere on my computer (it's supposed to automatically deposit the digital file to wherever you designate). It's as if the thing closes automatically if you're not there within a few minutes of it finishing. Kinda weird and have had to re-do a few recording because of that. Still though, a good system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Software and product work well. I was a little unsure if this would work but i have been very pleasantly surprised. It works great--I downloaded the software onto my laptop so the VHS tapes I was copying would record straight to the video folder in my computer. I can see a screen of the video as it plays and records on my computer. It records in MP4 so the file isn't so big. From there I open my Adobe 14 Premiere editing program and I can drop the file into the timeline for editing. You can add other media or edit and trim the footage in the time line and then burn to a file or a DVD. Really works well--now I can get rid of all those VHS tapes!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product for a simple good job Works well. Quick 3 plug hookup to left right and video (white, red and yellow respectively) Also an S-plug is included if you use that for slightly better quality than the yellow video plug.Software is utilitarian. Does the job. NO FRILLS. You get one shot at trimming (editing the beginning and the end) Can't go back. The editing is coarse. The slightest movement of the mouse to change start and stop times can move the video 15 - 30 seconds. You'll need to edit later with a 3rd party video editor. But for most usage and just banging out digital files from any video source even live TV it will be a good quick utility.
