Pros: Cost. Obtained second hand, and has worked so far, with very nice quality recording/streaming.
Cons: Very fickle with my ATI 5870 video card. There is a lot of video corruption if I overclock my video card using the ATI/AMD tools. Also, the included software is passable at best. It really needs more options.
Summary: After burning out my old and outdated ADVC-100 I tried BM Intensity Pro Card and my system and capture software saw the card but it didn't work, at all so I RMA'd it back to NYC. for a refund, I was thinking about getting there USB 3 version and saw this on sale here at Newegg. So I took a gamble and it paid off. I now can ingest HD content to my system without any problems.
Pros: When you find a product that works just the way you want it to, that my friends is a pro. Also see other thoughts.
Cons: Short USB cable. Installation disc didn't have any Disc creation software.
Summary: It's actually a great product, especially for it's price. The quality is amazing, the software is very easy to use and it weighs virtually nothing. Since I use my laptop with it it's very easy to bring with me wherever! Although if I could recommend to those buying this as a starter project, raw video footage takes up ALOT of space, especially in high quality!
Pros: Very easy to set up Decent software included Great price Portable if you use a laptop!
Cons: Inability to capture S-Video (It's not advertised to, just irks me a bit) It's powered by USB, so if you always keep it plugged in you'll need to have your power source (Your computer) on before playing.
Summary: Buena Capturadora en todos los sentidos tanto en calidad y sencillez,la unica pega es el programa de edicion que incluye pero se soluciona usando camtasia. Una cosa a tener muy en cuenta es el cable de componentes,ya que dependiendo del cable se vera mejor la imagen de captura se recomienda los originales de PS3 no otras marcas.
