Summary: Diamond VC500 software would not work on Windows 7 PC. Also, accessory AV -3 cable had two broken RCA plugs. I returned Diamond VC500 for refund and purchased Hauppauge USB-Live2 (which I would recommend).
Summary: After installing the software for this product, it disabled other software I had on my computer, also slowing the computer down. I had to reinstall the other programs. I was able to record from VHS but the picture was very fuzzy and the audio was very bad.
Summary: The capture feature works great, but the included editing package wouldn't play sound. I am using other editing and DVD burning software. I wanted it primarily for the capture feature anyway so I'm fine with it. Had to mess around some in order to accomplish convertible format.
Summary: The Diamond VC500 finally allowed me to capture & convert old VHS tapes. ...and place on my computer. Once captured I searched and searched trying to find something other than a VERY basic movie editor. ...but it was not to be. I called the company and was on hold for 30 minutes....
Summary: Didn't know what to expect with this but it actually worked very well. There was no stuttering video and it was quick to set up. The only catch was that you have to turn off your screen saver because once it goes to that it basically starts the recording process over and you have to start the video...
Summary: The video capture hardware and software are similar to a proprietary previous devise that I bought from Diamond MM. However, this one did not work at all when using the video connection option (RCA Video\Audio connectors).
Summary: Attempted to transfer VHS tape to PC. PC is a new HP with 3.5GHz CPU. Instructions provided with package cover installation ONLY. THERE ARE NO OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED, NOR DO THE MANY FORUMS ON THE INTERNET ANSWER QUESTIONS. Sound level is extremely low.
Summary: After multiple attempts to get some the of quality picture (including talking to support) I could not get a quality translation. I wanted to take old Gus tapes and burn to dvd's. I would not recommend this product.
