What are Customers saying about GreentreeAV? 
The DVD and tape arrived Monday. The conversion looks good [had very poor quality VHS , improved to DVD].  Tracking is now solid and all the tearing of the picture is gone. I think this is about as good a result as possible.  Satisfied customer.  Ed, New York, NY 11725.

Can't thank you enough! Very grateful for your tenacious efforts to bring this [very damaged VHS tapes to mp4 files for download] very important historical footage back from the Abyss. The video showing the survey crew maring the property boundaryies was priceless since a neighbor has removed all of the pins.  You are a true master of your craft.  THANK YOU so much! Jim, St. Louis Missouri MO.

The DVDs arrived yesterday [from VHS and Umatic tapes]. I looked at the oldest one first (of my son when he was 10 months old) and it looks great!  It brought happy tears to m eyes. Thanks so much for making these old tapes accessible today on modern machines. And thanks for the website, so I could find you. Metaleen, North Carolina, NC 28630.

My DVD and mp4 files arrived this morning [from VHS-C and miniDV tapes]. As usual, they are top quality work on your part. Thanks for the expertise in all that you do.  We've been enjoying them all day. JoAnn, FL Florida, 33813.

Thank you so much for your work!  Our whole family appreciates it [mp4 file to FD flash drive].  This is the only video we have of our childhood.  You did an amazing job.  Thank You.  Hannah, Seattle, Washington, WA 98103.

Received the DVDs and FD today [VHS video tapes to mp4 flash drive].  Thanks so much for the great work!  I am reliving my youth...I hope to dig up more tapes and will give your name out to others. Take care- Steve, IL Illinois 60046.

I received thew package - everything is in order.  The video looks and sounds great!  I appreciate your work and care greatly [moldy PAL VHS to DVD and on flash drive].  Andrei Iowa 50014.
