  • Title: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Bandicam Test
  • Uploaded by DJAklek on Apr 17, 2011
  • Description: Bandicam does not lagg, at least not on my laptop
  • Un-edited video stats:
    - Length: 02:54 minutes
    - Size: 287 MB (not that bad, considering Fraps would probably have about 1-2 GB)
  • Personal opinion: Bandicam is quite good, unregistered it has a maximum limit of 10 minutes, and it has a watermark. Still better than Fraps.
