    Ive been thinking bout getting a video capture card for quite some time now so that i can rip my movies and TV shows off of my DVR and put them on DVD.

    When ever i do a search on the web for cap. cards, EasyCAP comes up A LOT and i checked it out on eBay and its not a bad price plus you get a professional program to go along with it.

    So what i need to know from the after dawn community is:

    Is this a good buy?

    Is it good enough quality to put it on a DVD?

    Does it lag?

    So if you all would be so kind to give me the basic Pros and Cons and Rate this baby on a scale form 1 to 10(10 being the best of course)

    Thanks for reading and thanks for helping me out(you all who do ;])

    yes get it!I got mine from ebay in the mail like 2 days ago I had to wait 12 anxious days but it's worth the wait!!good price as well!!it's very easy 2 setup and the quality is extremely good almost perfect and no lag what so ever it with the video studio which is ulead! I use the movie wizard instead of the video editor and it's great with vcr,dvd,or ps2 etc..basically anything with the red,yellow and white cables it picks up great!!so I recommend it!!if u get it u can ask if u have any probs

    So have you ever tried to put your captured video back on to a DVD?

    And tell me some bad stuff about it, the cons.

    yes I have like I played my ps2 using ulead video wizard which comes with the easycap and captured it and saved it to a disc and it turned out great!!The only bad thing I could think of is that when u install it it kinda freezes up ur computer and when u try 2 capture it and it was lil laggy during capturing as well but it depends on what capture software u use and how good ur computer's performance is!

    I just purchased Easy Cap, and at the moment, there is nothing easy about it :p I finally got it to work, however the files are HUGE. Just 20 minutes into the video it took all of my disk space (40GB HD). And I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to lower the quality, and hence, the size!

    I bought Easy Cap so I can keep a handful of videos (5 or so), we are moving overseas and I just dont see the need to lug over a VHS payer and 5 (going obsolete) video's. I'd replace them on DVD but they are either 1) way too expensive or 2) don't come in dvd format.

    Help? Pretty please? :)

    If you want to buy easycap it’s a good one and cheap too
    I have used Dazzle and Snazzi and now using this one on MAC and it’s perfect. If you can buy DC60+ That's the latest and improved for VISTA and MAC. Previous models had problems with recording Game consoles and this model uses different chipset
