During a Spring clean I discovered some old camcorder video tapes from between 12 to 7 years ago. I no longer had the camcorder to watch them so set about investigating how to convert them to digital. I could have done it myself but with over 21+ hours of tape this would be time consuming and I wasn't sure of the quality of the end result. My search on the internet found Video99 and I was impressed with the information on their website as well as the previous testimonials from other happy customers. I was initially going to send one tape as a test but a couple of emails from Colin the owner convinced me that my tapes would be in very safe hands and I sent them all (21). I can't recommend his service highly enough. I wasn't in any hurry for the tapes when I sent them and a new hard disk off to him on the Wednesday. He kept me updated through Thursday and Friday and I had the digital copies back with me on the Saturday morning! Fantastic - and such good quality too. 5 star work. Read More

Colin did a fantastic job of piecing together many of my Mini DV tapes, from the beginning communication was superb and I could not have asked for a better service. Everything is done to make the job a priority and if you are planning on getting any recordings restored onto a new format this is the service for you. Will definately come back for more work done.

I filed in a form got a quick reply, sent my tape off at the beginning of the week and before the week was out I had received 2 copy's of my tape and was watching something I haven't seen for 18 years so bought back some good memories. Many thanks to Colin and his great service for doing this for me and at such an affordable cost. I will be recommending there service to anyone who asks me where they can get a great service. Thanks again. Read More

What impressed me about Colin at Video99 was that the type of tapes I had, no-one else could handle them, they were pre-BetaMax from 1976, and, as they are historical, I was very pleased and relieved that they could be Transferred. He has obviously gone the extra mile in providing valued service. The quality was certainly as good as I could possibly expect, and the personal, gracious and dependable service was much appreciated. I would recommend this 'techie' very highly. Read More

Colin has just converted some old (but precious!) VHS and VHS-C tapes onto DVD and AVI for us and we've been delighted with the whole process. From the friendly advice and professional quality of work through to the quick delivery it's been a faultless experience, and Colin has gone out of his way to keep us constantly updated. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in using them again or in recommending the team at Video99 to others. Read More

I was worried I had left it too late to get a video converted for a birthday present. I posted the video on Thursday and it was back on Saturday. Colin also created a great presentation box with pictures from the tape.
I had no idea how long the tape was or what state it was in, no longer have a video player but Colin was extremely helpful, answered e-mails promptly. Highly recommended, Brillant. Read More

What fantastic service! Highly recommended. Colin managed to convert some priceless recordings to the quality AVI format from an old Betamax and a couple of Video8 tapes that had languished in a drawer since the early '80s. I am delighted with the results and the way Colin kept me informed of each step of the process. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Many thanks. Phil Dandy, Lancashire.

I came across video99 and Colin through a search on Google. Although at first I was slightly sceptical and wary about sending off family mini DV tapes to an unknown service, but I needn't have worried - Colin couldn't be more helpful and all communication was prompt, friendly and polite. I am very happy with the results and turnaround time was excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Video99. Read More

I had a Betmax tape from the early '80s and Colin managed to get all of the contents transferred to a DVD. The speed was fantastic as I sent the tape on the 23rd. December and received the DVD on the 28th. December. Great considering it was Xmas. Thanks.

Fantastic service by Colin. Transferred an old Dictaphone tape to cd for me, this contained the only recording of my late husband I had and so was very precious. Kept updated throughout. Extremely reasonable charges, would definitely use again and highly recommend.

Colin recently transferred material between 20/30 years old from VHS tapes and Hi8 Video to DVD for me. I was kept informed via email and text of progress and was surprised at how quickly the job was done. The finished article was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends.

Colin transferred 22 mini DV tapes to hard drive for me. I had the HDD shipped direct to him and posted on my tapes. The whole process was perfectly orchestrated with regular emails. Colin sent back the HDD first, then the tapes once I confirmed I was happy with the material. At £7 per hour of video it was well worth the price. Couldn't fault the service in anyway.

I had some old Betamax tapes with digital audio recordings of a friend's band on them from the 80s. They were literally mouldy and in poor condition due to spending years in a garage but Colin managed to retrieve most of the material from them. Turn round time was really quick and he kept in contact throughout to ensure that I knew what was going on. Would not hesitate to recommend him.
