My family probably has hundreds of old VHS tapes, we have a VHS/DVD player, which converts them, quite painfully,you must watch the whole tape, and then the formatting and saving isn't so smooth, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a VHS converter to put them directly on a hard drive, preferably cheap (under $100 would be nice, assuming I have the computer and HDD)since DVDs are already on their way out, and converting video formats is much easier than converting media along with its content, easily.

since VHS does not have any HD content, you can simply connect a VCR up to a cheap $12 easycap and rip the content to your PC by just recording the realtime playback.
It will take a while since you have to record everything in real time
