Compare Costco VHS to DVD to Walmart DVD


Comparing Costco and Walmart Video Tape Transfer Service


Looking to digitize your VHS tape library?  You are not alone. The VHS tape, otherwise known as the Video Home System was introduced to America in the year 1977. Millions of consumers captured family videos on their gigantic handheld camcorders to videotape family vacations, birthdays and other special family occasions. It was fairly easy to record your home movies (and test Dads videography skills) on VHS tapes or VHS C tapes and enjoy your family memories over and over again on that gigantic tube television in your living room.

Then, poof!  Everyone in the family grew up and technology changed. We had the DVD, and the DVR and Mini DV tapes, Hi8 tapes, SD cards and Cloud storage and on and on. But as it turns out, a lot of us still have those old VHS tapes laying around and are wondering where the best place to transfer and relive your family memories is. 


Look no further. I am fairly confident we can help you make a good decision on where to find the best vhs to dvd transfer service.  We did a quick comparison of two of the most popular VHS tape transfer services online and compared them to Forever Studios VHS tape transfer service. Never heard of Forever Studios? Well, first you are on our website now, so nice to meet you. Secondly we have been digitizing home movies since 2007 for thousands of families.

Which two video transfer services do you ask? Well, there are many VHS to DVD services online but a few of the more popular ones are Costco DVD and Walmart DVD.
