Bandicam, a very reliable screen recorder

Bandicam is a great sotware to record and post videos of the quality you like. It is a very useful product.

Pros

Bandicam opens up fast and I also like how it saves the files I record to the the location that I set it to. I also like how I can record my video quality in many formats 360p, 480p, 720p and 1080p according to the space I have or the type of quality of the video that I want.

Cons

I do not like how Bandicam puts a watermark on every video that I have recorded because I haven't payed for the product.

Reasons for Switching to Bandicam Screen Recorder

Bandicam is a much simpler application in terms of the interface.

Great alternative to Screenflow or Camtasia for interview recording needs.

Bandicam Screen Recorder is far more fun to use for my client interview needs than Screenflow. It's lightweight so it doesn't slow your PC down, and there are a ton of file size reduction options so you don't have to deal with massive files, if you don't require ultra high quality. It takes maybe 7 minutes to learn. It also has a free version if you don't want to pay. However, for business use I would buy it to get all of the benefits.

Pros

What I like most about this screen recording software is how lightweight, easy to use, fast to run, and simple to figure out it is. When I switched from my mac to a PC last year I needed screen recording software to replace Screenflow. Screenflow was very complicated to learn, and I wanted something that would be easy to pick up. I just wanted to be able to record client interviews the same week without having to study. Bandicam solved all those problems, and it costs much less than Screenflow, or Camtasia.

Cons

If you want to do simple editing you need to purchase an additional piece of software from the same company called Bandicut. It would be great if it was included inside Bandicam, however the price point is so great for both pieces of software it was not much of a problem for me.

Reasons for Switching to Bandicam Screen Recorder

I wanted something lightweight, and I switched from Mac to PC.

Reliable screen recorder

My experience with Bandicam has been good and I recommend it to anyone who does not mind the added text.

Pros

I liked Bandicam, it was my go-to application for screen recording. It opens quite fast with a splash screen. I like how I can set my screen recording area, and it's not difficult to do so. It also easily saves the screen recording to the location you set.

Cons

I liked Bandicam quite a bit, I probably still do, but it places writing on the top center of the screen. I found a free program that does do this, which pulled me away from Bandicam. The writing being on the top center has at times interfered with my recordings since it's placed on top and after recording. Having the text visible during recording or perhaps when choosing the recording area could help. This way I could position my recoding area such that it does not block it out.

Reasons for Switching to Bandicam Screen Recorder

I was looking for a light-weight program, for basic screen recording. OBS Studio is on the heavier side where it's geared towards more complex applications.

Excellent Product for Recording Screen Activity

Overall Experience Is Amazing. I Definitely Recommend this software to all my friends and relatives due to its professional Features. Thank You Bandicam

Pros

Its Screen Recording Feature is Amazing as Its video output creates video in many formats 360p,480p,720p & 1080p. We can use those videos for any purpose.ITs Screen Capturing and Clicking, typing, and Voice during recording are more convenient for YouTubers.

Cons

Some of Its Features are Paid (we have to pay Bandicam to get unlimited access to its all features) after expiring its trial period. It's not fair, It should be free of cost to get access to all of its features.

Best for quality & real-time video recording in an efficient manner

I would highly recommend it as a daily driver for small to medium scale business having a limited budget. Test the software in trial and if it meets your company requirement then it would definitely worth switching to paid software for receiving a full-fledged benefit. For beginners as well as professionals, it is a great choice for making high-quality tutorials and gameplay videos, which can be easily shared on social media platforms.

Pros

The best thing is that its user interface is easier to learn. Finding settings and configuring options in the menu is user friendly. For making tutorials it provides real-time tools like drawing pencil, highlighting, background overlays & watermarks, for better tutoring experience. The game recording is also well done using its realtime recording and shows FPS as well for benchmarks. Its light on computer hardware resources and video quality can be adjusted to make it lighter on low spec machines. Screen recording size can be cropped to adjust for specific needs. Keyboard shortcuts come handy for screenshots. Helpful customer support is available for a quick response.

Cons

There is nothing major to mention. Technical issues are faced rarely because of newer version software updates solves most issues. The other is the recording limit of the trial version is low, but it's not really a demerit for paid software.

Reasons for Choosing Bandicam Screen Recorder

Bandicam has user friendly interface and ease of useagewhich helps us to focus on making great content for tutorials and gameplay videos, rather than focusing on learning the software like OBS.
