    Hi Test Freaks Blog.

    I’m Tyson or iCondemned on XBL, and PSN. I honestly haven’t won anything in my life beside my mom and my girlfriend’s heart. I enter myself into a lot of sweepstakes, and ‘nothing’ is what I get. I just want to win something for once in my life. I’m not asking a lot, and it really seems like I’m begging to win this, but I’m really not trying to be all greedy and stuff. I just want to win something in my life. This Pinnacle Video Transfer does look pretty bad-ass. I love playing around with new technologies. This could be great with my cell phone. Haha, that’s all I kinda do have; beside my computer.

    The reason why I want this is because I’m entering my 3rd year in college, and I want something cool to have with me before I graduate, and maybe become someone successful and give out prices like how you’re doing so. I’m a helpful person, and I want to give that special someone who deserve it, or someone that are passionate about it. I know there’s a slim chance of me winning this, but it was worth my time writing this out.

    I might not make a lot of sense because I’m just tired, sorry. Well, thank you for giving this away, and I hope I win this, and redeem the price for the first in 20 years of me breathing. Hope I get the email from ya’ll that I had won. I have my finger cross. Thank you!

    I want this!

    I travel allot because i study at place that located 300+ kilometer form my home and plus i only get to come home in weekends, so every weekend i spant a few hours downloading, converting and finding movies and series that i can watch on my psp on the way to school and in my free time there (this place is vary spartan “studing only” school).

    So this device fits my needs perfectly and would save my precious hours.

  • nolonger

    Hello! Sounds like an awesome product, count me in!

  • Ben

    I want the Pinnacle Video Transfer so I can record video of the good times my friends and I have on the xbox 360. Weekly we meet up and usually play Left 4 Dead. If there is enough of us we play versus mode. It’s hilarious watching and listening to each other in party chat as we tear each other up. The next day after the game, one of the guys sends out an email giving highlights of the night before game for the friends who couldn’t make it. I’m always saying wouldn’t it be great if we could record video of the game for everyone to check out. The Pinnacle Video Transfer seems like the perfect device to make this happen.

  • Kamanashi

    I want this. My reason is so me and my friend can start doing video game reviews for our Blog. Currently, all we have are camera and a broken PCI capture card. Also, sometimes I wish I could record the idiots I meet on Xbox Live and PSN.

  • dm

    Thanks for the amazing contest.

    I need this gadget strongly.
    Firstly, I completed my graduation. I travel a lot. I have a geek habit, I record whatever I found beautiful or worth recording. I have a flip mino and a sony digi cam. I hate connecting my flip mino to my pc usb always. So, if i win this, my job will be done more easily.
    Secondly, transferring videos to usb- great great feature. I can share my videos easily with my friends. Please consider me, please please.

    Thanks again!

  • mendel

    So, I also want to win this :-)
    And the reason why is already said here above: converting those stupid analog vhs-tapes to something worthy called digital data :-)
    Here at home it’s like having a LOT of disney movies, in vhs… But our vhs-recorder is dying I think :-)
    So this video transfer device from pinnacle would be VERY nice =)

  • daveh

    I have 2 young boys and a camcorder. We live across the country from all of family, so they never get to see the videos of the boys. I would like to be able to transfer videos and share them with family and friends.

  • Iceman

    I could definitely use this Pinnacle Video Transfer device! The reason is to transfer the VHS tapes to DVDs of my kids. the tapes are about 20 years old and don’t trust them to last much longer. It was my son’s idea to transfer them over to DVD so he can show his kids what kind of trouble he got into when he was little.

  • Chris L.

    My reason for wanting this is purely selfish, so I can’t really compete with the rest of the posters. Perhaps my bad attitude will sway your decision. I can promise one thing – I won’t make naughty amateur videos with it. Unless there’s money involved…

    I too want to win this because i want to record analogue TV programs into digital format.I don’t have any device to do that but i always wanted a device like that which can let me record videos from any source.

  • Marius

    I want this. I work far away from home, on a cruise ship and i definitely would love if i could transfer videos and share them with family and friends. Besides some of my friend onboard would like to share some videos.Thanks.

  • zachig

    Pleassss!!! I Want it so badly. I’m using a cheap/lame usb video converter to convert my old VCR tapes to video files and it just doesn’t do the job properly :-(

    I’ll be super-happy to have the Pinanacle Video Transfer!

  • idbaghera

  • Trina

    I WANT this! I NEED this!! My friend at work has one and I am totally in love with it. I am learing to fly and have just done my solo! My instructor videos me with my old video camera and then I “borrow” again my friends Pinnacle. As a matter of fact, I was using it just yesterday to transfer the video of my solo onto my PC so I could send to family and friends. I have requested one for my birthday, but thats two months away and right now during my “solo” flights I am having a lot of videos taken. PLEASE choose me! I know how this thing works and its the best!!
