It took a lot of searching to figure out how to make it work. In the end, it was dead simple, but because the default capture settings weren't correct, it looked like it wasn't working well. After a lot of effort & trying several settings, I successfully captured my old videos to a digital format. I'm now 'struggling' through learning the editing software. I have no doubt that it will eventually do everything I need it to do - and in that way it is very good value - but it has required lots of effort due to a lack of documentation. In the end, I'm pleased that I bought this device.
