I give this product 5 stars!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VHS to DVD 7.0 Deluxe (CD-ROM)
First of all let me say why I gave Honestech VHS to DVD 7.0 Deluxe 5 stars. I picked up version 2.0 several years ago at Costco and it worked great, but had issues. With a recent upgrade of my XP machine, I had to make a choice. I could buy the latest that would run on Windows 8 or change products.
After reading the many reviews here on Amazon on other products that were cheaper, I spent the extra money and went with what I already knew. Coming from 2.0 to 7.0, the changes are huge. I love the interactive menu and being able to change the aspect ratio. I am going to have to re-digitalize my movies again with the new larger ratio as home movies are priceless.
So it does convert the VHS or other media types (Camcorders, etc.) that have RCA inputs/S-Video in MP4/AVC format that work great for iPad, PC, etc., but as far as digitalizing my old movies MPEG is fine for me. I then use Nero 12 to edit and recode my movies to MP4 format. I have tried some of the other features and love the new everything. I hope this review helps and couldn't be more happy.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone interested in easy video converting/editing.

Thank you for this review. Yours is the first I've read that talks about coming from the old software to the new one. I have version 3.0 software that has the same box as this includes and was using my XP desktop to convert home movies until it died two weeks ago. I have been trying to decide if it is worth the money to buy the new version or see if the old version can run in some miraculous way on a new Windows 8 machine.
In your experience, does the software do the conversions any faster than your old XP machine (my old desktop used to take about a half hour or more just to convert and merge, on top of recording)??
