"Bandicam is the worst."

December 12, 2014  |  By derikgw

 |  Version: Bandicam 2.1.1.731

Pros

Can't think of anything.

Cons

Will not record without recording background noise from somewhere, even if you turn off all audio input. The sound is horrible.

Summary

Bandicam is the worst recording product I have ever used in the last 10 years.

"Excellent free software."

March 03, 2014  |  By smithpd1

 |  Version: Bandicam 1.9.4.504

Pros

Bandicam was the only video recorder I tried that could record a a certain cut scene video that was playing in a game. Others I tried had severe stuttering. The ones that failed were AutoScreenRecorder, Screencast-O-matic, CamStudio, and Fraps.

File sizes are very small. 7 MB for a 4 minute recording compared with 250 MB for 30 seconds in Fraps!

Can accelerate calculations using Cuda if your card is Cuda capable.

Cons

None that I noticed.

Summary

Get it now.

"Simple to use and does it all"

September 30, 2013  |  By bsweeney67

 |  Version: Bandicam 1.9.0.396

Pros

Small footprint, easy to use, records images or video with sound

Cons

Can't really think of anything except if you expect simplicity on the level of Iphone apps forget it, you won't find that here but if you are looking for something that simple you probably aren't the type to be downloading and installing a program like this let alone actually use software like this.

Summary

This program is excellent and it's free, so what are you waiting for?... start installing already!

"Better than fraps!"

March 19, 2013  |  By StewieMonSta

 |  Version: Bandicam 1.8.6

Pros

- Fast upload to YouTube
- Easy to use

Cons

- Performance killer when using on-board graphics in games

Summary

This software is better than fraps because the compression is much better and the FPS does not drop so low but still is a performance killer on on-board graphics when recording games.
