    Hey guys, I've got a question... I'm looking for a video capture firewire card... I'm looking on Pricewatch.com and there is a KOUTECH FW-582 PCI TO FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 CARD SW & CABLE
    it comes with Ulead VideoStudio Editing Software for 30 bucks. But then there is a Pinnacle System Studio DV Version 7 Firewire Video Capture Edit Card with Software for 103, with a 30dollar rebate... I was wondering if anyone knew any differences in the two of those products? I assume the more you pay, the better the quality... but do you think its really gonna be that big of a difference for 70bucks? I'm not looking for total professional stuff, but not crap either, ya know? Any opinions are appreciated.

    Pinnacle is the worst company I have ever had the experience of doing business with. Good luck if you have any problems buying from them.

    Never heard of KOUTECH, but being a smaller company may mean better support.
