The great thing about video tapes is…erm, hang on, there isn’t anything great about them. They’re rubbish. But we bet you’ve got stacks of them cluttering up your cupboards. Thing is you can’t bin ‘em, they’re full of precious recordings. So thank goodness for the U Record Video Converter.
Simply hook this clever little gizmo up to your VCR or camcorder via the supplied cables, USB it into your PC and hey presto – it will convert your beloved recordings into digital files. You can then archive them, burn them to DVD or sync them to your portable gizmo of choice (iPhone, PSP, etc.). It even comes with div-proof software that analyses and improves the quality of your vids.
As well as its impressive ability to amalgamate obsolete technology with cutting edge jiggery-pokery, the USB-powered U Record is compatible with modern video sources. Use it to transfer Sky Plus recordings to your PC, or convert DVDs into iPhone-friendly MP4s. It’s a breeze thanks to the included EZ Video Converter software.

Buy the U Record and you’ll soon be chortling at dad’s Speedos on those reinvigorated holiday vids, wincing at Cheggers’ pith helmet (assuming you were unlucky enough to video Naked Jungle), marvelling at the staggering unfunniness of ‘Allo ‘Allo and singing along to long-forgotten ads. ‘Hope it’s chips, it’s chips...’
Remember kids, video tapes don’t last forever. That’s why it makes sense to digitise them asap. And once you’ve successfully archived your VHS library don’t forget to stamp on those cumbersome tapes before chucking them. After all, you wouldn’t want the binmen to know you’d gone over the last five minutes of Knight Rider with a clip of Carol Vorderman fumbling for a P, would you?
