Hey guys,

I've basically compiled a list of devices that would do the job of going from VHS to DVD/Mac. My questions is, Which of one these has the best video - audio sync as well as image quality transfer. I have a MacBookPro - Retina Display.

1. ADVC110 ($175) or ADVC55 ($160) (Will need the Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter $29)
ADVC Professional Family | Grass Valley, A Belden Brand

2. Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac ($51)
Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac - VHS to DVD Conversion Mac Software

3. Elgato Video Capture ($80)

4. Honestech VIDBOX for Mac ($53)

5. Blackmagic Design Video Recorder ($142)
Blackmagic Design: Video Recorder

6. Blackmagic Design Intensity Shuttle for Thunderbolt ($230)
Blackmagic Design: Intensity

Thank you.

image capture of vhs can be a tricky one due to the quality of the video machine itself. then going through the process into the computer can be time consuming aswell. Firewire is the cleaner route due to bit rate compared to usb2 variants. Also you need a good software to clean the image quality.
