Got this for my home movies of my kids. Works perfectly, exactly how I pictured it.
Can't believe you get all this for just $25. Works just as advertised. Thanks guys! -Andrea K.
USB, or Universal Serial Bus is easily the most common data port on PCs today. It is commonly used for all sorts of devices and most hardware manufacturers today take advantage of the fact that it is so ubiquitous. The most common version out today is USB 2.0 and it can transfer 480 mbps. USB 3.0 is the latest and greatest and can transfer ten times faster.
In the context of analog video capture, USB works perfectly. It takes that raw uncompressed video coming from your composite video source for instance and brings the video in as a compressed video file (after the adapter in between your composite source and USB port has done its work).
