I use my dazzle very often as i put videos onto youtube. unfortunately it doesnt record in hd but for 20 pounds, what do you expect. this is perfect for somebody who wants a hd-but cant afford one like me. The dazzle is easy to set up and can be done in under ten minutes. I use mine for call of duty on my xbox but most games work fine. The computer software is fine but you need to use some other downloaded software to run on windows 7 and to record in colour, but for the price yoou are paying what do you expect. The dazzle is a nice small compact device that looks good with your T.V. If i hadn't got the dazzle i wouldn't be the youtuber i am today. I cant think of any flawes in this product.
Hope this helps you find a recorder. Thanks.
My personal review on Dazzle DVD Recorder DVC 100
I got this a while back for recording some of my gameplay off my PS3. And it did the job well; not in HD, but still great quality. I bought it off amazon.co.uk for £19.99 which seemed worth the price basing on all the features this beauty can do!
With Dazzle DVD Recorder, anyone can transfer video to a DVD using a PC--no experience required. Simply connect a VCR, DVD player, camcorder or other video device to the Dazzle USB hardware. Then use Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder software to create a DVD recording, complete with menus and chapters, at the click of a button. You can burn your video directly to a DVD without first copying files to the PC hard drive, saving both valuable time and space. The DVD can be played on any home DVD player. DVD burning has never been so easy thanks to this device.
However, there are some main features you need which don't come included with the product, which you need for everything to work. The three headed splitters did not come included with the product, and neither did the component cable, so this means extra spending for it all to work. But its no big deal really.
Itself its not the colour shown on dooyoo, its more of a Grey, Bluey colour. I suppose thats an older version shown. Its not that heavy, and it is not very bulky, perfect to fit under your tv where you keep the accessories.
If you were looking to burn things onto this device and upload to youtube, there are somethings you may need to do first to gather the best quality. Your going to have to open the file up in windows live movie maker or Sony Vegas 10 and render it to a rate of 30Mbs with 720p HD quality. Your also going to have to maintain the aspect ratio in order to get a 16:9 video on youtube. If your experienced with all this technical stuff, this should be no problem what so ever for you; its pretty straight forward.
Additional information: Requires Windows Vista/XP/7 . Media - CD-Rom
So yeah, if your into recording your gameplay and posting it on youtube, or burning videos on to it to transfer to your computer, this device is one of the best reliable on the market! Just note you may need to buy the extra cables along with the order!
