Bandicam Screen Recorder Reviews

Literally this Best Recording Software

At first, I was a little hesitant at buying this app. I tried it out via trial and it was very easy to control. I asked my friends, who are decent YouTubers (50,000+ subscribers), and they all said that they tried others like OBS, Fraps, Camtasia. But, none of them could compare to Bandicam.

I bought Bandicam, right afterwards, on Amazon, registered a copy, and instantly fell in love with the interface and all it stood for. If I had the money, I would buy 2-PC licenses for all my co-workers.

Best program for recording!!!

This program is the best for screen or video recording. I used Fraps program before which is another recording program. But it was kinda difficult to use and a little bit difficult for me. So, I tried this program for recording. I still using it! It is really easy to use and has good quality. I am very satisfied with this program. Thank you Bandicam!

One of the few gems out there. I use this program since 2012 and it's amazing that this program is still in development and receives great new features every now and then. The free version is limited to 10 minutes per video file and a watermark, but that's still way better than what the competition does *hints at the outdated Fraps*. Funnily enough, I use this program even as a FPS limiter for older games that don't support vsync and it does its job just great. The only issue I have with Bandicam is that the developers tend to introduce some bugs with updates, which is something you should be aware of if you need stability and no bad surprises at all costs. But on the bright side, they really care to fix them once people report these errors. Therefore I think this is really worth a 5 star rating.

Suitable for high quality screen recording. The watermark in the free version can be somewhat annoying, depending on what you are recording and where you plan to play the footage so for private usage the free version is still good but for public sharing and professionalism it is highly recommended to pay for the licensing.

it worth paying

How is this an alternative to Fraps?

Sure, It's much better but it has a 10min limit and shitty watermark on videos. Otherwise you have to purchase it but I can't afford that price and honestly there are free software solutions. Which doesn't imply it had to be open source, but I can't believe it's rated so high as an "alternative" lmao

Hi @penpx,

I can totally understand your concern. Bandicam's been around a long time now, before a lot of the great new recording apps. It's had a lot of time to garner Likes for it's easy to use design. It's facing steep competition now though, especially from open source apps like Open Broadcaster (OBS). We'll see how things go from here!

Thanks for posting your thoughts about it, good reading. :)

Best regards, David

I get the frustration with the limitations of the free version, but how does this disqualify it from being an alternative to Fraps? First, AlternativeTo lists similar software regardless of their license and price. Second, and more importantly, Fraps limits free users to 30-second recordings (20 times shorter than Bandicam!), and also puts a watermark on top! You only lose these limitations for the $37 registration fee, which is just $2 less than that of Bandicam. I really don't see a big difference between their licensing models.

says Bandicam's 10 minute limit and watermark is a bad thing
meanwhile Fraps has a 30 seconds limit and a watermark too

Just signed up to say that I find your logic very "interesting". Unlike Fraps, Bandicam is still being updated and has tons of handy features these days. That can't be said about Fraps. In fact, I still remember how some Youtubers bought hard drives just for Fraps recordings, because that "great" program doesn't offer any video compression at all. Oh well, to each their own. But at least stick to the facts, lol
