I just did some initial testing with a SIMA Copy This. CT-1 (successor to the SIMA SED-CM) video enhancer I purchased, and thought I'd report my impressions here.

I bought the CT-1 with the goal of getting better captures from VHS tapes of TV broadcasts I've recorded over the past 15 years. These tapes tend to have uneven saturation/intensity and some show some "tearing" of the image at the top or bottom when played through my Sony SLV-N71 VHS deck (lower-end consumer deck). After some research on dvdrhelp, I thought I'd try the SIMA product first, since it's almost throw-away cheap, before investing in a high-end VHS deck or stand-alone TBC/viedo-enhancer.

I've tested briefly with a couple of my recorded tapes, as well as with a pristine commercial movie tape I own and with a professionally recorded business tape that has some saturation/graininess problems. My overall impression is that the CT-1 has almost imperceptible effects on all of these sources. It does not reduce the tearing on my own tapes at all, and had minimal effects on adjusting saturation intensity. It did little with the over saturation/graininess on the business tape. On all the sources I tested, adjusting the output of the CT-1 across its full range had only the slightest apparent effect on overall saturation/intensity. At the lowest output setting, the video is just the slightest bit darker; anything above that looks pretty much the same or varies slightly in a non-linear way.

I'm not terribly disappointed, since the CT-1 was an experiment for me and I didn't have very high expectations. I will say that others have reported better results for the early SIMA SED model(s) so maybe the new CT-1 has been re-engineered (accidentlally or deliberately) to do less.

Based on my initial experience, I would recommend against buying a CT-1 with the goal of improving your captures from VHS. I'd be interested though to hear about the experience of anyone else who has tried a CT-1.
