Thread: What USB Capture Device Should I Get? Help A Newbie...

  1. Default What USB Capture Device Should I Get? Help A Newbie...

    I'm thinking about adding an external device for capturing video (maybe one with tv tuner) to my new laptop computer. Being a laptop, I'm not sure if it has enough power to handle the device well enough. It's a Pentium Mobile 1.6 GHz (533 MHz Bus and 2MB Cache) with 1GB DDR2 RAM 400 MHz and 60 GB 7200 RPM HD. It's running Win XP Home SP2 and has an ATI X300 128 MB video Card. I'm thinking going with either Pinnacle Systems PCTV or PCTV Deluxe (don't know which one is better FOR ME) or ADS Tech Instant DVD 2.0 or even Adaptec VideOh! DVD Media Center. Anyone familiar with these products?

    I recommend Dazzle Digital Video Editor (DVC) 150. It's a good product, I owned one and maybe I was just lucky, but my device wasn't unreliable, like others said it would (it never dropped frames, nor did any other annoyances). Still, I'm glad I could get a good internal card.
