A customer of ZD Soft Screen Recorder I have been trying out screen recorders for the last 4 days. I had to do a tutorial on how to change settings in Windows, and how to change settings in a feature PC FPS game. I saw yours, but it did not look as impressive as the other well known products, so I tried all the others first, probably totaling 12-15 different screen recorders. Nothing was working the way I wanted, the video and the sound were not synching, or the desktop would get captured, but when I would start the game, the screen capture would stop viewing the whole screen and only capture a small portion. Then the microphone would stop recording my voice as soon as the game started. It was a nightmare, but then… I decided to try your software. Wow! What a difference. It worked so nicely, the voice and video were synched correctly, when I started the game the recording continued so smoothly, and also continued to capture my voice, and the instructions… I have not purchased yet, but plan on it as soon as I save up the money. Just wanted to give you some encouragement, and beg you to never change your software, it’s great.”
