    Pros:
    Hardware is easy to install, and setup. Worked well with existing cameras and mismatched replacements. Can't beat the price for this type of performance.
    Cons:
    Lack of detailed instructions. Software difficult to understand in certain sections. Best for use with other software than prov...

    Excellent video capture card for Linux

    posted by AriMc on 10/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works perfectly with Linux (Debian 5 in my case). Video quality is OK for the price.
    Cons:
    The BNC-connectors available in the card are rare and most cameras come with RCA-connectors instead so you'll need either addit...

    Go paranoid, build your own security system.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works flawlessly under linux, and I'm guessing anything else with a generic BrookTree 878 driver. Video quality is actually quite good. The quality of the video seems directly proportional to the quality of the video you put in: attach cheap cameras, get s...
    Cons:

    posted by mdwyer on 07/28/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This gives you four inputs for a price most would charge for just one. Works well under Linux v4l (bttv card=77).
    Cons:
    Very picky about resources. You may have to shuffle around PCI cards before you find a slot that doesn't interfere with other ...

    Pros:
    * 5 Stars!! * Works flawlessly with Linux * Since it works with Linux, install zoneminder and have a decent FREE security system. * Rather simple to setup * I have 3 of these now in my system, and the oldest card is almost 3 years old, and has NOT had one b...
