    "Great for training tutorials"

    October 18, 2012  |   By darothwell

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Easy to install and use.

    Cons

    May need to convert video file type to reduce size and increase compatibility. Any Video Converter is great for that purpose - mpeg4 is a good file type choice.

    Summary

    Great, free, product.

    "Installs unwanted Software (SweetIM) when told not to"

    September 12, 2012  |   By rmontrose

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Captures screen video.

    Cons

    During installation, even if you tell it not to install the "Sweet IM" program, toolbars, etc. it installs them. It takes a lot of manual work to remove all this crap ware.

    "It works, BUT...!"

    September 11, 2012  |   By llfomac

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Works. Fast and easy. Minimal fussing with settings.

    Cons

    It installs MALWARE (IMHO) in the form of Intelibar in more places than you can imagine!

    Summary

    If you install it, plan on extensive cleanup session to get rid of Malware Intelibar - which hijacks browsers in many ways. Easy but annoying to get rid of everywhere, especially in Chrome.

    "CNET/Download.com is a sellout"

    August 29, 2012  |   By Tenn-Wiskey

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    None, Nothing

    Cons

    ADWARE!!!!

    Summary

    Contains adware no matter what you don't want installed yes it's bundled. CNET/Download.com used to display on it's home page No Adware, No Spyware, or Viruses. The mighty dollar sure done away with that statement. Make sure when you download and install from CNET/Download.com you scan your computer. I'm putting this review on the other HyperCam Download it to contains Adware. Thanks for nothing CNET/Download.com Sell Out.

    "Comes packed with unwanted addons to browsers"

    August 29, 2012  |   By vinceDV

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Uh... Pros????

    Cons

    It doesn't record webcam video as promised
    The installer ask if it is ok to install some extra's. Even wenn unchecked, a lot of stuff was installed, llike extra bars in my browsers. It changed the default search engine for my brosers and changed the startpage. These are the things that make the internet such an unpleasent place from time to time.

    Summary

    Please install this, if you are up to a lot of changes made to your computer. And if you don't mind to install software that doesn't even do what it promises.

    "This rocks!"

    August 10, 2012  |   By Dhanjot

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    It does everything a video capture programs needs to, and its free.

    Cons

    Have to be really careful to not install any of the crappy toolbars and let it change your homepage and that sort of stuff.

    Summary

    You will see many reviews of it being malware, but this can be avoided. Yes, you have to uncheck all that install the toolbar nonsense, but when you click next to continue, you have to be even more careful, a dialog box will appear with some mumbo jumbo about agreeing to install some other garbage.. here, you have to click cancel instead of ok. This happens twice. All in all there two screens where you uncheck the toolbar stuff and two dialog boxes, as just described.

    Second note. As some have commented, there might be trouble recording audio. What you have to do is make sure that you have "Stereo Mix" available in your recording devices and with that, it all works fine. If Stereo Mix doesn't appear, you'll likely need to do some research, it took me at least an hour to figure it out, But that's another story.

    "Perfect for what I needed"

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Perfect for recording a 99 page pdf file in perfict high quality resolution. Easy to use. I unchecked the adware boxes on installation.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem to record sound so I wouldn't use this for recording a music video

    Summary

    I highly recommend this for recording screen shots
