Review: Pinnacle Video Transfer


While I'm an iPod owner and love the gadget to death, I've always been annoyed at the limitation it puts on getting my own video content (TV shows and DVDs) without having to buy from iTunes. I can record TV shows onto my DVR and take my DVDs anywhere,...

As a fan of making the most of what I already have, the Pinnacle Video Transfer is a winner, because it lets me watch TV shows and movies on my iPod, but I don't need to buy them each time

Lets you copy a video source to any USB 2.0 mass storage device, without the need for a PC

It isn't portable, you can't program it to record video at a set time from a set channel

The Pinnacle Video Transfer is a cute unit that's elegant at transferring analogue video to a USB storage device but thoughts of recording late night TV before an early flight are fantasies because you'll have to be there, recording. You may as well...

Pinnacle Video Transfer


Transfer your old VHS home movies and other video sources to your USB storage/media device without a PC in sight.

To record at the highest resolution of 720 x 576 pixels you will need to use a hard disk or memory key. However, videos captured at this resolution are recorded with interlaced frames, just like regular TV broadcasts. When viewed on a computer screen,...

A nice and honest product that does what it claims... so what if it happens to be a little pricey?

Pinnacle Video Transfer review


Not everyone enjoys being presented with an old family video at get-togethers, particularly when everyone in the room has all eyes on the TV showing that 25 year old clip of you being potty trained.

Pinnacle Video Transfer Review


Bring video to your iPod with ease with Pinnacle's Video Transfer. This interesting device cuts out your computer completely.

Good quality video capture, with files transferred straight from your video source onto the iPod or other storage device

Needs a PC to reformat your iPod - this can't be done with a Mac, confusing status indicators during recording

We don't have any complaints about the quality of its video recordings, but Pinnacle could still do more to improve the Video Transfer's ease of use. The device needs to provide better feedback during the recording process and, of course, needs to work...
