Easy to use, quality is fine. Software is very simplistic but works well enough.
-Cheap feeling construction
-Software is barebones
Pretty great product that worked well. Out of the box, setup was quick and painless.

Works with Win 7 64 Bits
Video and Audio are encoded with correct quality (MPEG2)
Basic software included
Not user friendly at all to install. (Useless install interface)
Better software also included but without any licence or serial number.
Hard to make MPEG4 works good.
Good for the price, but if you have some much money to spend I am sure that you can get a better product. This is not a professional product.

Great quality when it was working, easy to setup
Quit working after a week
I bought one of these, when it worked at first the quality was really good, and the setup was painless, so I bought another one to run two inputs into vMix Video Mixer. Then one video...just a pretty light on the unit. The other one did the same thing few days later.

I RMA'd the one that was still under NCIX 30 day return, the other one I'm still waiting to hear back from Diamond from an email I sent a week ago. I heard their support is non-existent, guess I'm gonna find out.

Small. Has basic software.
Had problems with it locking up while recording streams as well as the audio just turning into a screeching noise.
This product requires some work and at this point I would not recommend it. Even when not recording I would sometimes experience the problems described in the cons. I also tried the product on 2 different computers to be sure it wasn't the computer causing the issues.

Experience: 1 Days
The price of the unit seemed good.
Problems with Drivers for the unit.
I had problems installing this on my XP SP3 machine.
Googling this confirms that that XP SP3 is a problem for the drivers. I spent quite a bid of time on trying to make this thing work.

It would never install properly.

Does the job, has S-Video input
Bundled software is garbage, capture software is extremely limited
For entry level stuff this device works alright. Using a variety of other software will get you what you need, but the included software is garbage. It comes with Ulead video editing software which was designed for Windows XP and does not capture without interruption.

The included capture software that is Diamond proprietary software is very limited. It works and takes some getting used to, but the codecs used are pretty weak and it doesn't explain resolutions of each setting, etc. To Diamond's credit, the included instruction booklet can be helpful for novices.

This does the job for a cheap price, but I would recommend spending a bit more cash to get something that works a lot better and has better software.

price-point is for the win, both s-video and RCA, Vista finds this instantly, software is standard
none, but you won't require the video editing software of the product one-up-from-here in price, just find open source applications
using this to record myself playing Final Fantasy on my PS2, the video compression is high for mp4, and individual screen captures were awesome quality

Handy little gadget, many potential uses.
Easy to use.
Good price.
Works on Vista x64
I bought this to transfer some old VHS tapes into digital format so I could play them on my WDTV. It works great once you get used to the controls. Picture and sound quality is good also. The capture software has limited capabilities but that's what video editing programs are for. Be forewarned that selecting "avi" as your output file type results in raw avi files which are HUGE. Since the unit uses standard RCA inputs, I can imagine plenty of uses for this device for capturing video from camcorders, gaming consoles, etc.

Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend it.
