Editors' Review

My Screen Recorder is an easy-to-use program that lets you record your onscreen activity. With its intuitive design and useful features, My Screen Recorder is a great way to create demonstrations, tutorials, and more.

The program's interface isn't the most beautiful we've ever seen, but it's easy to figure out. The big red Record button brings up a dialogue that guides you through the process of configuring the recording options. Once that's done, the program records until you hit Stop within the program's interface or uses the designated keyboard shortcut. The program then saves and replays the recorded video. My Screen Recorder has quite a few features and options, making it one of the more versatile programs of this type that we've seen. You can select whether you want to record the full screen or just a specified region, can choose between AVI and WMA output formats, and have the option of recording just audio or video. We especially liked the program's audio tuning wizard, which helps you configure your recording and playback volume. The application also helps you customize your display options by offering a variety of settings for visual effects and Windows appearance, and the program's built-in Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we found My Screen Recorder to be very easy to use--simple enough for beginners--but customizable enough to meet the needs of more demanding users.

My Screen Recorder is free to try, but the trial version puts a watermark on the program's output. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Installs spam extensions to browser-DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

December 30, 2013  |  By aknox077

 |  Version: My Screen Recorder 4.02

Pros

Does what it says, I guess. Never got to try it out since it installed so much garbage along with itself.

Cons

Installs several extensions to your browser WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION OR TELLING YOU. FastestChrome, GreatArcadeHits and PassShow. All awful spam that puts a bunch of ads in your browser and brings up unwanted popups when you click in blank areas.

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL. THIS WILL ADD THREE SPAMWARE EXTENSIONS TO YOUR BROWSER WITHOUT TELLING YOU!

"Free: Yes, but still not worth it"

November 29, 2013  |  By le_goat

 |  Version: My Screen Recorder 4.02

Pros

It's free. It records the screen. It can record audio via mic. It allows you to select the are you wish to record

Cons

It has a watermark until you pay at least $50. The quality is grainy. UI is not very intuitive. Much better products out there.

Summary

There is no reason to use this product when Microsoft has their own free product with only a 10-minute-recording-time limitation; no watermarks, better quality, better audio recording. If you want a real screen recorder/capturer, check out Microsoft Expressions Encoder 4.

"Spamware that doesn't work well"

October 31, 2013  |  By indereview

 |  Version: My Screen Recorder 4.02

Pros

It downloaded quickly

Cons

Resolution was terrible. Sound didn't work.

Worst of all, it downloaded sweetpacks onto my machine. Spamware that takes 20 minutes to uninstall

Summary

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! You will spend more time uninstalling the spamware that comes with it then you will actually trying to get it to work.
