What does this kit do?

new computers). So, there's no need to add a card or open your computer to
install anything. It's all easy and plug and play.

No, you won't need any additional software. In fact, we highly

I hope all is
well, I just wanted to update and Thank you for
some great customer service and product you provided. Your fire
wire DV to USB cable works well with my camera. It was my computer
that had minimum memory, that prevented me from down loading the
video, as I suspected after gathering as much information about my
problem. I appreciated the fact that you worked with me to
troubleshoot the problem and stood by your product offering and
immediate refund during the time.
purchased a Dell XPS 420 w/ 3GB of RAM and 512MB vid card. I believe
this will keep me going for awhile. I used your wire to down
load the home movies that I wanted. I want to thank you for having
contacted me as a follow-up after I was arranging to update my
computer. You provided me with the product I needed when other
product providers, including the cameras manufacturer could not
help. I was impressed when I read the testimonial on your web site,
when I decided to buy this product. I always wonder if those things
are real. I see that they are. Thank You for providing such good
I was very impressed how fast I got the product. I ordered
last Thursday and I got it on Monday!
You were the only place I Found this device. Half of the
people don't even know what it is including Radio Shack.

More than 4
business days, so after 2 e-mails and 3 phone calls i got my
12 bucks for shipping back! probably not worth the hassle... but
after ordering from you i'm all set now, I appreciate your work, and i will
reccommend you to the 3 hardware pros I know (one of them is
my brother) for an outstanding job that you have done! thanks a
lot!!! I hope you can use my e-mails as reviews on your site or
Thanks again, keep it up!
