If you're looking for a really cheap capture device, this one is worth looking at. I won't guarantee it has high quality, or that it will work well for VHS to DVD conversions, but it might have some minimal use when archive quality is not required.
The biggest draw to this device is that it supposedly works well on both Mac and PC (Windows) systems, through the USB2 port for video capturing.
