A couple of Lidl bargains

  Stuartli 14:22 09 Sep 2009

Many will be aware of what is tagged an audio/video grabber for capturing analogue audio or video in digital form.

The cost is usually around £35 to £40 but from next Monday (September 14th) Lidl is offering this device under its Silvercrest brand name (akin to Medion at Aldi) for just £16.99.

The 2.0 USB device has a video/audio port adaptor, S-Video cable, video cable, USB cable, stereo cinch cable, Scart adaptor and a CD-ROM containing drivers and CyberLink PowerDirector 7 video editing software.

Also going on sale is a reappearance of its premium inkjet photo paper (I find it excellent).

In glossy, fade resistant and waterproof 280gm form, sizes are A4 (50 sheets for £4.49) and 10cmx15cm at £3.99 for 100 sheets).

You have to open a program to capture to, be it the one supplied with the hardware, or Movie Maker. or some other

Thanks for the comments. Whether it's an internet forum or not doesn't mean that you have to undergo a completely way off the mark reaction.

By the way, the Panasonic TX-P42G20B is proving a monster purchase even seven or so months on.....

I am affraid I agree with drewey. I purchased one of these video grabbers from Lidls about a year ago and the quility is so bad that it is unwatchable. It does have a Svideo connection but this was no better than the mono connection. Of course I can't speak for all the grabbers, maybe I just got a bad one. It was the last one at the store in Bedford.
