      "Great, but not that great."

      May 01, 2014   |   By lunathewise

      Version: BB FlashBack Pro 4.1.7.2810

      Pros

      It has a feature for older PCs, but it actually helps saves my laptop space when wanting to download it to YouTube. It also has a video editing part for the program in .fbr where you can edit the video you recorded and upload it to YouTube with a simple click of a button. It also has also has an export part into the player where you can change the video format from .mpeg4 to .WMV and or Flashback. It's best feature for me is the webcam side view you can move around on your screen.

      Cons

      I have a built in microphone in one of my newer laptops I have the program on. It wont record external sounds and I tried contacting BB Flash, but have yet to have the problem resolved. All my computers and laptops are compatible, but it seems not to like my computers very well when recording sounds outside my desktop or laptops. I may have to get a microphone headset and see what it does.

      Summary

      All in all, it's worth the download space and money if you have it. But make sure it works fully before buy it by going to the BB flash website. http://www.bbsoftware.co.uk/bbflashback.aspx

      "Vid editing great, serious audio rec/edit problems"

      December 05, 2011   |   By aweebunny

      Version: BB FlashBack Professional Edition 3.0.3.2035

      Pros

      Great screen vid editing tools. Very slick, ez to use. Love it, Love it.

      Cons

      poor audio. produces gravely sounding, static sounding audio. I've been in touch with BBFback support and they can't seem to fix this problem although they say my system(s) is well within the spec range. I've tried this on a desktop, laptop and even took the laptop to another building to test for interference and had same result. If they can fix this and send me a new build, I would recommend it. As of now I'd say save your $200 for another program as the audio recording/edit is unusable.

      "Amazing screen capture softwware."

      August 31, 2011   |   By illage3

      Version: BB FlashBack Professional Edition 3.0.0.1923

      Pros

      - Easy to use
      - Low system impact
      - Multiple formats to export in
      - Nice interface if you are an experienced user
      - Low file size
      - Ability to record Webcam
      - Great integration with Windows 7 and Vista's Aero interface
      - Works great on Windows XP

      Cons

      - Interface can be a little confusing for first time users.

      Summary

      BB Flashback pro is the best screen casting application I have ever used. It's low system impact combined with ease of use and multiple formats to export in, will ensure that your screen casts are of the highest quality.

      The application is also able to change your screen resolution while recording, which is a feature I used a lot when I had my old monitor, it allowed me to make HD screen casts for YouTube.

      This software is well worth purchasing at only £124 which is quite cheap for professional grade software.

      The editor is also amazingly easy and simple to use, but for first time users it can be a little confusing.

      Other than that I highly recommend that you all give BB Flashback pro a try, you will not be disapointed.

      "Great product"

      September 12, 2009   |   By strategicx

      Version: BB FlashBack 2.6.3

      Pros

      Loads of features but very user friendly. Lots of export formats and very small file sizes.

      Cons

      It does everything that we need. I haven?t found anything negative

      Summary

      I tried a few free screen recorders and then found the express version of BB flashback. That was the pick of the bunch but we needed something more for work so I got the company to buy the pro version. Everyone loves it.

      "Great program"

      November 08, 2007   |   By troublemann

      Version: BB FlashBack 1.5.6.309

      Pros

      I use BB Flashback in my classroom. I teach graphic arts, such as Photoshop and using BB Flashback has greatly improved my students ability in learning Photoshop. The program is very small and easy to learn and the ability to export the video file to a standalone exe file is great, because there's no player needed. I also us a microphone to record my voice. This is a great program.

      Cons

      If you give instructions on the computer this program offers the ability to record full screen or just a reagion of the screen in full color and audio. Easy to set and use shortcut keys. The ability to edit the movie file and insert extera audio and text and the ability to export to many different file types.

      "Treat it as you would the plague!"

      December 22, 2006   |   By Russ1948

      Version: BB FlashBack 1.5.4

      Pros

      It kept my mind occupied at trying all the whistles and bells to see if this program was really worth $200.

      Cons

      Nope! Make that a double. Immediately upon uninstalling BB Recorder, my PC start up time doubled, and once I got into Windows my PC started taking on some very irritating spasms in the display and video arena. After some simple investigating, I found I still had about $100 worth of BB Recorder software on my system. It had attached and configured itself as a graphics\video driver in my control panel, and played havoc with my boot files and registry files. After a lot of find and fix, and frustration, I got my PC almost back to where it was. If you try this program you may as well buy the program. In my opinion the program isn't worth anywhere near $200, but neither is all the aggravation you will have to go through if you try and uninstall it. The price of this program is equal to the price of Windows XP Professional. I think someone is in need of a reality check and it isn't Bill Gates, or me!
