  • Does the trick

    If you have old VHS tapes cluttering up your house, this is the device for you...provided you still have a VHS player. It easily converts your VHS tapes into a MP4 file. Granted, these files tend to be HUGE, so you'll probably need a mass storage device to go along with this purchase. It's easy to use and you can let it go without attending to it. I used it to get rid of some VHS tapes prior to moving. Excellent. I gave it a GOOD rating because of the size of the files it creates. I wish there were more of a way to compress them.

  • Used to move my VHS tapes to PC

    I was very apprehensive about this prchase, but it was worth every dime! I had absolutely no problems and it was very simple and clear on how to use. I moved about 30 hours of memories to my PC and downloaded them to thumb drives. Perfect!

    I was trying to save some VHS movies I had from self-distruction. I thought ELGATO VIDEO CAPTURE would do the trick better than my previous system but it idid not so. Even if it is more advance than my previous capture system, the quality of the final product when I exported to the DVD format was inferior in quality to the original VHS tape. I know that the VHS quality wise is less half as good as a DVD product. Nevertheless, I expected the resulting copy should have been AS GOOD AS the original VHS tape. IN truth, IT WAS NOT and gave me an inferior resutl. F.Gajate
