Has anyone had any experience with such a device?.
I have a lot of video on VHS & Hi 8 that I want to put on to DVD for archiving. What do you think the quality would be like vs VHS and what sort of HD storage will it consume?

Haven't had any experience with it but make sure that the audio and video signals are both carried via the USB2 feed. Seperate feeds can cause audio/video sinc problems..
