"Cripple ware"

June 02, 2015  |  By tsjustme39

2015-06-02 16:35:22  |  By tsjustme39

 |  Version: Golden Videos 3.04

Pros

simple install

Cons

limited to 5 minutes VHS capture
no support of any kind until you buy
this is not a try-before-buy offer because you can't really try it with the limitations.

Summary

This is not a try-before-buy offer because you can't really try it with the limitations. The help button sends you to their web site trying to sell you Express Burn Disc Burning Software; there is no help file.

Pretty lousy marketing technique; I will look for a friendlier company to do business with. I'm disappointed that CNET seems to promote it.

"Wonderful product."

March 30, 2013  |  By HGHUDAHAR1

2013-03-30 06:06:20  |  By HGHUDAHAR1

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Works as advertised.
Easy to use.
Recognized my devices without problem

Cons

Does not playback audio while recording VHS from tape player.

Summary

While audio playback while recording would be nice, it is not a necessity for me. I have an old 12" TV hooked up on a co-ax output from the VHS player, so I get the audio feed from there. Having the audio is a big help when I get to the editing and cutting scenes together.

"Excellent - Concise - Free"

December 31, 2010  |  By r3jt

2010-12-31 18:40:33  |  By r3jt

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Works as advertised; Simple install; Simple interface; simple controls. Basic hue/sat/contrast controls are adequate. Choose DVD files or video files (mp4, avi, or wmv).

Cons

Simple controls=not much adjustment.

Summary

Lost my Roxio EasyVHSToDVD cd, glad I found this instead of paying another $50. NCH gets the job done long as you have the USB dongle and its driver - thankfully GV detected my Roxio device. Works on my on XP and Win7 PCs and 1 Vista laptop, so it plays well with others! Audio records as expected, in sync & complete. Interface is so simple I'm not sure what folks need from a "Help" function; there aren't that many controls to adjust to begin with. Anyone needing to convert to formats other than mp4/avi/wmv, or need deeper controls to generate files can use FormatFactory or HandBrake (both free). This is good stuff.

"Cute interface - buggy program"

September 29, 2010  |  By Metal-Hippy

2010-09-29 04:22:32  |  By Metal-Hippy

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Very simple wizard interface; I wish all capture programs were this easy to follow.

Cons

Multiple blue-screens and lockups while running this program.

Summary

After spending some hours trying to get this program to run without crashing my entire system, I simply gave up and will be looking elsewhere.

NCH say on their site:
We make this software free with the hope you will like it so much you might come back and try some of our other many other programs.

Sorry NCH, but if this the standard of software you use to entice people into paying for your other programs, then I foresee only bankruptcy in your future.

Bottom line: don't touch this software if you value your system's stability - the support forum for the software is full of complaints and they seem to have closed it to further posting.

"Doesn't work"

July 09, 2010  |  By photobug56

2010-07-09 19:31:25  |  By photobug56

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Video comes through

Cons

Audio stops coming through when you move the wizard past the capture setup screen. When one hits record it makes like it is but nothing actually records after the first second. Also, instructions are very poor and are incomplete.
