Default PCI Video capture - What do you guys think of these?

Hi,

I am interested in buying something like this....

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=51198

I only intend to spend about £30-£35 as i only intend to use it for my camcorder and maybe recording the odd thing off TV.

Has anyone had any experiance with them? Are they any good?

Cheers

My mate has one, i think it's the exact same model. He uses it to convert VHS videos to DVD. The quality of the DVD is so much better than the VHS, and with TV recording i suggest to use an outdoor antenna the indoor ones are o.k. but it is crystal clear with an outdoor one.

Also it uses a big chunk of your HDD to record TV and stuff 2 hours is approx 6-8gig.

P.s.- FYI all the VHS movies he converts to DVD are his own. No pirating involved, not illegal.

So you would recommend them as a good budget piece of kit?
