Dell Dimension 8250, P4 2.3 Ghz, Win XP, 1 Gig RAM, 2 7200 RPM drives (120 and 160 GB w/ 8 Meg cache).
I already own Premiere, Vegas Video, and many other audio/video programs, including DVD authoring software. Video has always come to me digitally, but I have a client who wants to give me a VHS tape.
So, as I don't need a software bundle, and all I want to do is get that VHS tape to where I can edit in Premiere (no need for real time), what is my best solution? Want the best quality output I can (DV) to firewire.
From what I've seen on the site, I thought that the DAC-2 or DAC-100 looked the best, however a lot of the posts seem to recommend the Pinnacle Studio Deluxe or others.
What am I missing? Is this a cost issue only? The $400 on the DAC-2 is no problem, and reviews seem to like it, but I haven't seen it recommended.
