No Capture Utility Included

There was a capture utility provided but this capture utility is part a pay to use program which only recorded in AVI format. Cost of this product was over three times the cost of other online sources.. I had to use a third party capture NCH utility to make this product reasonable usable at a more increased expense. Better shop around

Simple and works well

Not much to it. It transfers video simply and efficiently.

Not compatible with Windows 10?

I installed this on a Windows 10 machine and it never worked properly. The software to edit videos would load but a white box would cover a good chunk of the middle of the screen the whole time. The video capture program would crash 85% of the time on starting and/or stopping recording.

Good value, may want to find other software!

We have used the unit to convert NTSC and PAL video tapes (we have a multisystem recorder that plays any format) and it has worked fine, automatically detecting the playback mode. The software provided is a free-version of a product with no support offered by Startech. On our system we often had issues with the audio delayed and out of sync. It was a static delay and oddly did not happen on some initial recordings, but once it started seemed to happen all the time. I think it is related in some way to the layers through which the audio is captured. When we found a trial of "golden" capture, the delay was not evident. This device does its job well. We got good quality recordings using the Component connections. We have not tried the S-Video.
