Great hardware Bad software

PostedMay 23, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I bought this product so I could record some old VHS tapes on my computer. It was an easy setup and Install. The device itself is nice and produces a great picture. The software is a little complicated and takes some time to learn. My biggest issue with this product is the Arcsoft Showbiz movie editor IS NOT on the install disc! So I had to find another program to edit my movie. The program saves the file as a .ts extension which cannot be played by any other program like windows media player or itunes. So you will also have to find a good media converter. I also found that booting my computer with the USB connected slows down start up dramatically.
Pros:
Easy Install, Good performance and Price.
Cons:
Missing Arcsoft Showbiz Software, needs additional software to edit and convert movie recordings, bad customer support, slow PC start up when connected to USB.
Pros:saving old movies, Video Editing

MORE HEADACHE THAN IT'S WORTH

PostedMarch 3, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
I'm impressed with the value but that's it. The program installed okay but then I had to call their tech support in order to figure out how to configure the program to run because it didn't configure automatically the way it was supposed to. There is also supposed to be ArcSoft ShowBiz on the install disk; this program is what allows you to burn DVD's from your downloaded video. Lo and behold the ShowBiz program is nowhere to be found, but it was supposed to have installed with the install disk. Working on this on a Saturday morning, I called their tech support---again---but they are only open week-days so it will be another two days before even the potential of any resolution to these issues. More trouble than it's worth.
Pros:family videos

USB-Live2 not the best

PostedDecember 15, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
I purchased this to work on my windows 7 laptop with i7 core processor. While I was able to capture video, I had to use their program. It would not work with Corel Video Studio X3. However I could edit the video afterwards. It does what it says it does and it is only a minor problem that I have to use two programs to edit they way I like to.
Pros:video capture from vcr
