I am a beginning video editor and would like to purchase reliable, good quality editing equipment for home videos and training videos for my work. Something I can transfer to DVD or my hard drive for powerpoint presentations. The most popular brands I researched were Dazzle and Adaptec. However, the opinions are split on both. Does anyone have any recommendations on these two products, or others that are available?

Thanks for the reply…are you referring to the Pinnacle Studio AV/DV version 9 with the video capture card? And what size 2nd harddrive?

So far, so good. Two more questions:
1. What is the advantage of a card over a USB 2.0 connection?
2. After checking out other reviews, many seem to have problems with the software included in the bundle? Would I be better of buying a separate video capture device/card and other software at the amateur level?
Sorry for all the questions. I am just starting out, and do not want to get frustrated right away with whatever system I eventually get.
