I was asked recently whether buying a device from a consumer electronics store to transfer videos ‘at home’ is a good idea. I had to do some research about this because we use a professional lab for our clients’ video transfers. I didn’t expect to learn that the ‘DIY’ devices can produce not only grainy and hazy results but also can break some tapes! Since tapes degrade in quality with age anyway, your best bet is to transfer them to DVD with a professional.
