I wanted a kit to enable me to copy vhs tapes onto my new mac with catalina 10.15 operatins system and it works fine!
Very pleased as I'd been told elsewhere that I would not be able to use my mac for this.
This product solved my problems with transferring my old VHS. tapes to DVD. I achieved very good results on my Mac. The product also works very well withWindows computers.

My Mac was causing issues initially so I contacted the Climax Digital customer service. I found their advice helped me immediately. I would recommend the product and the company.

Very good prompt pre-after sales advice.
Software works well. If it could be tweaked to stop the 'threading' that would be even better. Pleased with overall results.
Good product, translates VHS to computer as described.

Would be better if more user guidance for set-up, particularly whether windows or mac computer.

Once I got this working I had no issues with it; intuitive and straight-forward, and whilst I have only transferred some old VHS tapes to digital, it has done exactly as I would expect. It unfortunately runs at realtime, so the process takes ages, but that gives you the opportunity to watch the old videos through again (except the wedding speech). However, what stops it getting 5 stars is the ridiculous routine of providing it with only a disc for the software (I have no disk-drive, and I don't remember this being obvious in the advert) so I had to do a work-round to download what was required.

We have been meaning to transfer our old camcorder tapes onto our computer for years but it all seemed too difficult. This piece of kit, though is brilliant and simple to use.
All of our precious tapes from when the children were young are now safely backed-up. The only problem is that tapes transfer in real time and dragging ourselves away from the screen is night on impossible!!

very useful for converting VHS to DVD at a very good price.
after experiencing one of the biggest provider and finding it a total useless service, I went for locally provided with local support if required. and it has been the best decision.

It makes a very good "work" in Mac and in Windows

Previously to buying this i had purchased a similar product elsewhere for about 1/3 the price but that didn't come with driver or instructions and after a few uses the wires came apart from the plastic casing they were supposed to be in. This product is fantastic and far superior - well worth the cost. It comes with drivers, instructions and software to allow you to capture and do basic editting and produce a DVD or computer file. Wish I'd bought this earlier. Have transferred about 40 VHS tapes to DVD and my compter.

I found it was a quick delivery, 2 days , faster than stated. Have used it and after finding which cable for sound , white or red , I have transferred my old films from tape ( super 8 ) to computer and the sound and picture quality is very good. The paper work that came with the device , is not very clear about editing bits off and inserting captions. I would recommend this to others.

Was unable to get this to work with my Windows 8.1 laptop connected to the VHS, but it worked fine when I connected the VHS to my Windows 7 PC and I successfully copied a video tape to DVD. I have not yet had time to explore why it would not work on the laptop except that the initial drivers did not seem to install. Are new drivers required for Windows 8.1?
Excellent product but problem with installation

The product is excellent, it works perfectly when it's recognised by the computer. I had some big issues with installation on my iMac (OS 10.6.8) : it worked ONCE and then... impossible to access the video settings, they are blocked on "jpeg" mode so no mean to transfer properly. That is why I rated only 4 stars. The client support was great, they explained how to uninstall and reinstall but it never worked again. So I tried with my husband Macbook Pro (older OS 10) and for the moment the device is running fine. It's easy to use, the converted videos are good, the quality seems equivalent to the VHS one. The sound is perfect, the voices are not changed at all (I had to find the corect sound settings). The only thing is the size of the .mov, it's about 1 Go for around 13 min. I'm very satisfied with the VCAP800, and the client support also.

Unbeatable at the price. It does what it says on the box.

I have been wanting to transfer my old VHS tapes to disc for a very long time, the VCAP810 worked first time and was really easy to setup on my iMac running OSX 10.8.5, I have transferred 3 x 4 hour tapes so far and it worked perfectly each time, very pleased.

Easy to set up and gives super picture and sound. I am using a SKY+ receiver to record TV programs, and use the VCASP810 to record the programs ton DVD.

Does exactly what is says. Easy to use. I copied a three hour tape onto my Mac laptop and then burned it to a double layer DVD with no trouble and no loss of quality.
Excellent results and no worse than watching the actual VHS

I've mastered a few films now using this device and then trimmed the resulting quite large .MOV file in iMovie and exporting at Medium settings for M4v getting a file around 1-1.2GB to watch on Apple TV. I'm happy with the resulting file, the audio quality is superb, picture quality is watchable, this of course depends on the original vhs.

Initially failed to get it working but an email to ask for support/help sent full details of settings required and all sorted. Email response was quick which is always welcome when having issues.
Easy to innstal It just works!

i experienced no problems connecting the adapter to my iMac (running the Snow Leopard) - though I guess my usage scenario is not the typical one - i purchased the adapter to display the TV output from the Raspberry Pi on my iMac ..
Simple and effective when used with my mac.

Worked well to capture images and video from the ultrasound machine at work - ie fine with any video source. Easy and intuitive with a broad range o configurable settings.
It just works!

I bought this device to back-up holiday videos and family memories. I'm using a Mac Book Pro running OSX 10.6.8 and once the software had been downloaded and installed it was simply a case of connecting the converter and pressing a button.
The quality is very good, there are plenty of settings for fine tuning, video output is in several formats so should cover most editing software.
Does the job!

Putting aside the premium any Mac connection seems to attract, my first transfer from VHS eventually worked fine. Needed more leads and Scart in/out adapter, but job done.
Foolishly, I did order the audio version by mistake,but they responded immediately and received the replacement the following day. Well done Climax.

Drivers on CD for Mac did not work but the online versions were fine. Set up was fairly easy on mac . the only issue is that any mobile phones within 5 meters will cause sound inteference so make sure you have them in a differebnt room

Small problem with drivers on cd not loading easily resolved by down loading from website. Product works as advertised - very pleased with the results. Support and aftersales excellent.
