What is the difference between Elgato and Roxio Easy VHS to DVD (Mac)

I have found a similar product "Roxio Easy VHS to DVD (Mac)" that claims to do a similar job to the Elgato in terms of capturing AV (Vhs) video but is £30 cheaper. Is there any additional benefits to the Elgato worth the additional cost?

    The Elgato-branded device outputs MPEG-4 video, while the Roxio device outputs MPEG-2 files (the same format as commercial DVDs).

  • I have a Roxio Easy VHS to DVD (Mac) device and use it with the Elgato Video Capture software which is available from the Elgato web site. I find the Elgato software better than the bundled Roxio version
