great device to have! – EasyCAP USB 2.0 Audio/Video Capture/Surveillance Dongle with Mac OS Support Reviews

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

Pros:
super useful! Can be used to record from composite or s-video or to turn your PC into an extra monitor for watching videos or playing games.
The inclusion of PAL60,NTSC433 is extremely useful.
easycap is recognised by most video capture programs
Cons:
dont really like the included software, but I didnt buy it for that so not a big deal for me.
Other:
if you are using this as a monitor, the audio will lag quite a bit if you are trying to listen with your PC speakers. To fix this i just plugged the audio directly to some external speakers rather than running thru the easycap. You could put a splitter on to record and watch at the same time if you wanted. (good idea for capturing game footage)
Bottomline:
if you want to capture/watch VHS, games, TV or anything else on your PC, I cant think of anything out there that is this good at this price.
