"...it really speeds up AVCHD footage using iMovie and Final Cut... If you have an AVCHD camcorder owner or need to rip a lot of DVDs of homemade videos, I'd place the Turbo.264 HD on the "must-have" list."
MacNews Network


... makes it very easy for a novice to convert files for use on a range of devices


The bottom line. Pro editors already have specialized gear for encoding video, but for the average Mac user, Turbo.264 HD makes working with video—including 720p or 1080p HD—a much speedier process.
Ray Aguilera, Mac | Life Magazine


If you are looking for quick and easy video encoding for home use, then this is it.

"The Turbo.264 HD eats video for breakfast..."
 Jake Gaecke, Appletell


"I have used it to convert more than 2500 video files. I think its safe to say that I know the product well... Elgato Turbo.264HD is the best device for converting all types of video formats money can buy. With its ability to trim out commercials, import DVD’s, and the blazing speed make this product one of the best I’ve reviewed in years."


"The Verdict: Elgato's turbo.264HD is a great encoder for those who need to basically do a lot of video encoding and want it done quickly. It's extremely intuitive, making it quick and simple to use, and is also the fastest one we've tried to date."
 Andi Wang, Gizmodo.com


It’s hard to overstate just how easy Turbo.264 HD is to install and use... Average users will find the process extremely simple, and by comparison with using iMovie, incredibly fast at taking videos from a camcorder and rendering them viewable on a computer.... for high-resolution output, it’s a speed demon."
Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief, iLounge


"One of my biggest expenses has always been buying new large hard drives for my ever increasing collecXon of footage (going on two years now!). The Turbo.264 HD actually makes it possible I can put 2 years worth of footage on one (small) bus-powered hard drive. "
Shawn Ahmed, anti-poverty activist and independant filmmaker
