    Product doesn't work

    Posted
    VideoJunkie

    I bought this product in hopes of preserving my childhood videos onto my mac. The instructions to setup were very simple. After I installed the software and hooked everything up the first time, I pressed Record on the capture video screen and the program crashed. I went to try it again and it didn't find the device. So I switched to the left USB port on my mac and it seemed to do the trick. I pressed Record again and this time, the preview of my video was capturing sound, but you couldn't see the picture. It seemed to be frozen on where it was paused before. So I closed out of the software, disconnected the device, reconnected it to the USB port, and now it cannot recognize the device. I recommend using any other software to transfer video from VHS/BETA/Camcorder to digital with ANYTHING else but VIDBOX. Photo: Shows the error saying it isn't plugged in and to check the blue light and you clearly see its plugged in and the blue light is on.

    Gets the job done, but kind of clunky.

    I purchased this item so I could transfer my VHS tapes to digital format. This item gets that job done and has options for importing from other sources, such as camcorder, etc... Straight forward and pretty simple for even a novice. However, I found it to be somewhat limited and kind of clunky. (the capture abruptly crashed on a couple occasions, and I had to restart from the beginning.) If you're looking for a simple and cost-effective way to digitize your VHS and analog tapes, then this will fit the bill. NB: Clean the heads on your VCR before feeding it any tapes. My VCR ate my tape. I had to find a video on YouTube on how to open the VCR, manually rescue my tape, and clean the heads before resuming without a problem. It's not difficult for anyone with a technical background. But beware you'll likely have to deal with this issue if you haven't cleaned your VCR heads lately.

    AWESOME! Build qaulity is poor.

    Does exactly what it says. Used with Mac Airbook and worked like a charm. The build quality is fairly cheap, but that's not really the point here, as it does what it is meant to do. It doesn't look as sharp as let's say the El Gato (which created a background whitenoise I could not remove - probably an isolated occurance; same tapes used for same project, no white noise with Honestech). The only thing I would change here, is the Video Conversion software... it's VERY VERY bare bones. Maximum setting it 3 hours, so LP 6 hour tapes must be paused at 3 hours. Some other nuiances.

    There were a bunch of very old family videos stored in my basement that were nearing their expiration date, and I didn't want to lose those videos so it was time to digitize them. I had never converted VHS tapes to digital before, so I wasn't sure at first which product to use. When I saw this product, I noticed the presentation was clean, simple, and it appeared appropriate for a beginner. I purchased it and i am so glad that I did. The setup was easy and the software is intuitive. Within just a few minutes I went from opening the package to digitizing family memories.

    This is the easiest (and best?!) way to digitize

    I had been looking and thinking for years what the best way to digitize old VHS and VHS C tapes would be - and then I stumbled across this at Best Buy and am very glad I tried it. It is as simple as downloading the app, plugging the VCR into the laptop, opening the app and pressing start. It records straight to a movie file that is easy to share send around. There is no need to try and digitize at a higher resolution through a different app, because coming from VHS the resolution is already limited.

    It does the job

    I had a different device, purchased a few years ago and had used a few times with satisfactory but not wonderful results. Somewhere, I lost one of the components. Instead of replacing the lost part, I did my research and I decided to try the Vidbox. It has worked well. It is simpler than my previous device, and the resulting videos are superior. It may have cost a few dollars more, but when attempting to archived family videos on a digital format, it is more than worth the extra money.

    Audio Distortion

    I was using this device to capture old home videos from a VCR, and while the picture quality was OK, there was an underlying issue that was causing a helicopter-sounding distortion to the audio track. I tried on two different computers with two different VCRs, swapped cables, etc... sent in to manufacturer on my own dime and they sent it back saying they "could not replicate the problem." Save yourself the trouble and pick a different brand that you know and trust. This may not end up being a good experience for you.

    Works great...sometimes

    Using this on a Mac, the software freezes during capture far too often. I cannot rely on it long enough to leave a full-length video cassette running while I go off and do something else. When it works, it works well...unfortunately it is rare that it works without having to start, stop, rewind, start and recapture videos over and over. And there aren't any "extra" settings to adjust, so there isn't anything I can do to try to "fix" the problem.
