Conclusion

 

For the asking price, this is an excellent investment for those who like their multimedia "toys". Sure, TV and FM tuner cards have been around for at least 4 years now, but I have never seen a product combine features with the potency that Prolink has. Despite the latest drivers performing poorly over the previous version, the software is by and large very stable.

 

Therefore, I am awarding this product an "Editor's Choice" award. It might not be the best performing solution around, but it sure is the best value for money. This was a very worthwhile purchase, so if you are in the market for a TV Tuner card, try to find this one. You won't be disappointed!

 

Pros

 

- Extremely cheap for an all-in-one TV/FM Tuner & Video Capture Card

 

- Only takes up a single PCI slot

 

- Frequently updated drivers on website

 

- Stable software

 

Cons

 

- Latest software not the best performance wise

 

- Not widely available in Australia

 

- Prone to interference from other system components

 

Rating - 9 / 10 and TweakTown's Editors Choice Award!
