Video-to-HD

Hello All,
I am looking for some info and advice. I have a popcorn and I tried a demo download for a new product called “Video-to’-HD”. http://www.indocomp.com/Video-to-HD/Video-to-HD.html. It is pretty cool and seems easy to use. It converts old 4:3 to 16:9 and takes away the black bars, and doesn’t seem to cut off or distort the screen.
Anyway, has anyone tried it yet? Is is a good program, easy for a newbie to use?
It is only $15 but, want to know if it is a good thing to get before I buy it.
Your help would be much appreciated by this newbie!!!
Thanks Much in Advance,
Jen
