If you are planning on putting your vhs tapes on to DVD via the computer.
A 3 hours tape will take at least 7 hours from start to finish.
I now no longer do that and have bought a standalone DVD recorder connected to my TV and transferring video tapes to DVD is in real time. A 3 hour tape takes 3 hours but there is no editing facility. What is on the tape goes on the DVD.
Maybe cheaper and more cost effective in the long run if you have a lot of vhs tapes to transfer. At the moment I am in the process of transferring all my old Beta tapes to DVD (about 120). After that is done I will start on my VHS tapes. I have a Liteon DVD recorder which cost £120 not much more than the Dazzle Fusion at £79ish.
