I moved right after I bought this, so I ignored it for about a year. Pretty simple to use. I made it a little more intimidating than I probably needed. We no longer had a VCR, so I bought a used one, researched how to clean it, and bought various chemicals and tools. The directions in the box were minimal, so I found the usual helpful video on YouTube. So far I've used it to look at old videos on my monitor, searching for a poorly labeled but hopefully not missing tape. I ended up giving up on using my Mac, because old iMovie is cranky and won't burn dvds, which I wanted for my purpose. It seems to work fine, so far, on PC. The video suggested buying a Y-splitter audio cable to use with the old VCR; make sure you get the right one.
