ZD Screen Recorder testimonials

Lorenzo "I am a game developer, usually I program complex algorithms for video games. As an experienced programmer, I'm not easy to impress, but your software is impressive, really. Honestly, I want to tell you that you are an excellent programer, certainly. I used many screen recorders looking for the best performance (because the performance is the most important factor in this kind of software), and I have found that the performance of ZD Screen Recorder is extraordinary due (I guess) to its impressive GPU accelerated screen capture technology which is able to make extremely agile screen recordings and a fantastic and now customizable and very smooth zoom effect at runtime with very low CPU usage, these unique features are really awesome and allow us to easily and quickly make professional screen recordings with a very attractive and pleasant visual result.

Also, at the moment, ZD Screen Recorder seems very stable. Currently it is a robust, fast, intuitive, versatile, easy-to-use, powerful, extremely useful tool with brilliant features and impressive performance. So I want to congratulate you for your awesome work."
