Summary: The Winfast TV USB II Deluxe Pros: Lag-free, high-quality video with low cpu usage. Looks great. Good PVR functions. Cons: Occasionally, the sound malfunctions inexplicably. Poor customer support websites. I was pleasantly surprised by the high-quality video produced by the Winfast deluxe. It looks better than the tv I was using in the office before. Granted, I have enabled hardware acceleration and my video card is doing the de-interlacing.

Summary: As described by some of the folks before, this product doesnt work well straight out of the box & would need some geeky tweaks to get quality output. You may get few headaches in re-setting the USP EMP sound drivers if you accidently changed the USB port. Also no USB sound support,it mandates a stereo cable to be plugged into your mic/line-in for recording.
Good piece of hardware, bundled software could be better

Summary: Hardware is very good as expected, especially for the price. However, the PVR software included has some problems to capture audio. I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Ulead studio software is very good, though. Because of the above, I'm giving it 4.5 stars, but it will appear as 4 (only integer numbers can be selected).
