ION Black USB Videotape Conversion Player - VCR2PC

Rediscover your movies on your computer and take them anywhere.

Turn your home movies into convenient, portable video files with VCR 2 PC.

You probably have a collection of old VHS tapes left over from the VCR era. And if you have important events stored on those tapes--baby movies, birthdays, weddings, or graduations--you probably would like to find a way to enjoy them again. VCR 2 PC is the easiest way for you to stop collecting dust on your precious memories and start rediscovering and enjoying them on your PC, iPod, mobile phone, or any other video player!

VCR 2 PC is a VHS tape player, just like a VCR, and it features a simple, easy USB connection so you can connect your computer and take your videos wherever you want them. Because it uses standard, USB, you only need the single, included cable to send both audio and video straight into your computer. And the included EZ VHS Converter software was designed specifically to make it easy to enjoy your videos on DVD, iPod, PSP, or computer. You can even watch videos on your compatible mobile phones!

Once you save your videos to your computer, they will be saved forever in pristine digital format. You’ll never again have to dig through a bookshelf of unlabeled tapes to find the clip you're after. And because a digital file has no moving parts, you never need to worry about a tape breaking.

Remember all those other types of camcorders, such as VHS-C or 8mm? VCR 2 PC can save their videos too. Just connect the camera to the front panel jacks on VCR 2 PC and you're ready to roll.

Not only does VCR 2 PC conveniently digitize all of your videos, but it also works as a standard VHS player with auto-tracking, so you can continue to enjoy your VHS tapes. Standard VCR controls including variable speed slow motion, playback, and rewind are all available on soft-touch, backlit buttons. There's also a PAL version of VCR 2 PC with SCART output so no matter where your VHS tapes came from, ION can help reconnect you and your videos.

VCR 2 PC makes rediscovering your memories convenient, easy, and fun.

  • VHS tape player with USB computer connection

    Pros

    • Affordable
    • Delivers as avertised
    • Easy to connect to pc

    Cons

    • Lack of helful manual
    • Poor "Help" menus

    Best Uses

    • Converting old VHS tapes

    Comments about ION Black USB Videotape Conversion Player:

    Out of the box - to - connect to pc is very easy (single USB cable, single power supply). Figuring out how to use it isn't that easy. "Help" within the program is sparse. No detailed manual was included (& I couldn't find one online either). Once I got it figured out (both VCR2PC and Videos options) I was able to convert old VHS tapes to .mpg format (internet movie format) and to burn to DVDs. Occassionally the Videos/Burn option wouldn't recognize my DVD drive (external drive), so would need to reboot computer for it to "find" the drive. This is a good product and it delivers as advertised...but I would like to see a detailed manual available for it.

      This is a great entry level converter. The weekend I got it, I burned 5 videos to DVD and it was soooo easy! I was even able to chose the background and menus with chapters to fit the subject.

          We finally are getting our most precious old VHS home movies archived. EVERYONE who has VHS home movies should get one of these or they will simply not have them some day - it's just that simple. The ease of use is quite remarkable and the quality is exactly the same as the media being converted. We cannot find anything negative about this item and HIGHLY RECOMMEND its purchase and use!

              I just saved about $400.00 by not having the local camera shop transfer my videos to DVD. Easy setup, and quality results. If you've got videos and want to transfer them to DVD, this is best low cost option.

              Comments about ION Black USB Videotape Conversion Player:

              I have tried many ways to convert tape to digital and most of the other ways are either too prone to failure or complicated or just plain junk. I love the ION unit as it was a very short set up the drivers and software and start converting. It also makes digital conversion that have the audio in sync with the video - a common problem in other methods I used. The MPEG2 files are big but no bigger than a DVD file of the same length. You can always make things smaller but if they were smaller (lower quality) to begin with it is impossible to make them better. Hard drive space is so cheap who cares if it takes 2 gigs per hour for a video?

              Bottom line is I only gave it four stars because I would like to see some sort of times X 2 speed up to make it perfect - as is it is a 1 to 1 conversion meaning I have to spend 2 hours to convert a 2 hour video - I don't know if double speed is possible but would be nice.

              Service and delivery comments:

              ABT - you are the greatest - super fast, free shipping and bullet proof packing - no problems and the lowest price I could find on top of all that.
