Worth the price – EasyCAP USB 2.0 Audio/Video Capture/Surveillance Dongle Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Cheap!
* No external power needed
* Small and convenient form factor
* Easy to get it running
Cons:
* My unit seems to have some kind of (hardware-related?) problem where the sounds starts to hiss/crackle after a while when recording.
It should be possible to overcome this by using line-in to record audio instead of the audio input on the device, since video works fine all the time.
Other:
It's nice that a USB-extension cable is included. The included software also does it's job, although there are better options available online.
Bottomline:
Amazing that you can get a capture device for such a low price!
