    "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!

    Version: Bandicam 1.8.9.371

    Pros

    Best Screen recorder i've used

    Cons

    NONE that I can think of

    Summary

    well worth the download also if you like this try bandizip it can open rar files and is better than winrar because the free trial doesn't expire after 40 days.

    "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.

    "USELESS recorder"

    July 08, 2012   |   By brainout

    Version: Bandicam 1.8

    Pros

    Simple interface

    Cons

    1. Unwanted toolbars are part of the default installation. BEWARE of them, lest you install them accidently.
    2. Installation is glitchy, and must be online. I had to do it twice, since the progress bar goes into a hang with no idea what's going on. But the play pause button was a nice touch.
    3. Can't configure codecs.
    4. Can't get rid of an overlay which shows you're recording.

    Summary

    Too-simple program for screen recording that won't let you configure Xvid. Limited codecs. Not even worth trying to use. But it offers sound recording and will allow your mouse to show. I didn't even bother to try these, since I can't configure Xvid.
