We reviewed Honestech’s VHS to DVD 3.0 product in depth last year and found a top-class product that quickly pays for itself if you have any amount of analog media to save. Well now, Honestech (Honest Technology) has an updated version, VHS to DVD 4.0 Deluxe.
The gist of the product is still the same: it has an A-to-D (analog to digital) converter box that attached to the your computer via USB 2.0. It accepts inputs via 3 RCA cables (1 video, 2 audio) and/or S-Video. This also means that this device is not just about VHS, but can handle pretty much any audio and/or video input that you can push out via one of those cable types. So get those VHS tapes out of mothballs and transfer them today!
In case you were considering v3.0, here’s (just some of) what you can find new in v4.0:
- HDV camcorder as input
- 16:9 widescreen
- HD editing
- Burn to Blu-Ray DVDs
- Chapter menus
- Higher resolutions up to 1920×1080
- Handles WMA audio
- Upload to YouTube
