LA PUENTE, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week at the ShowStoppers event at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, No Geek Needed™ unveiled its extremely user-friendly products that customers can easily install in a matter of minutes with no help at all. The company launched two Wireless N Routers and its Video Grabber, simple but sophisticated devices that eliminate the need for "geeks" when installing and using them.

The easy-to-use Video Grabber lets users convert their old VHS tapes to DVD disks using their PC – and hold on to life's memories – eliminating the need to pay for an expensive digital transfer service. Users simply plug the Video Grabber into their PC, attach the cables to the video out on their VCR, insert the VHS tape, set the software to record and let the machine do the work. The converted video saves to the hard drive and can then be easily burned to a DVD. The Video Grabber comes with TotalMedia™ 3.5 software so users can edit and export videos to their iPod® or iPhone® in no time.

In addition, No Geek Needed is redefining the concept of user friendliness with its two Wireless N Routers, optimized for either homes or apartments and dorm rooms. These routers are the easiest solution to getting online, allowing any users, no matter what their technical skills, to create a fast, secure, wireless environment powerful enough to cover their living space in five minutes or less.

No Geek Needed is a new company with a simple mission: to provide great products that users can take out of the box, install and have up and running in a matter of minutes or even seconds, with no confusion and without bulky manuals.

Each No Geek Needed product comes with an illustrated Quick Start Poster making assembly fast and fun. All the cables users need are included, so products work right out of the box. In the rare chance a user needs help - No Geek Needed has live English-speaking human beings ready to provide free support 24/7.

"The No Geek Needed mission is to make it easy for customers to perform techie tasks that in the past may have intimidated them," says Chief Marketing Officer, Bruce Fredrickson. "At No Geek Needed, ease of use is non-negotiable; it's who we are. Most tech companies say their products are easy to use and then fail miserably living up to that promise. Not us! Whether you're a teen who is simply not geeky, or a senior who just wants it to work, we're redefining what it means for tech products to be easy to use. Our products bridge the gap between the customer and technology and actually make technology enjoyable."

The Video Grabber will be available soon online at and at major retailers for the anticipated retail price of $49.99.

The two Wireless N routers for dorm/apartment and the home are available online at and will soon be at major retailers. Suggested retail prices are $54.99 and $64.99 respectively.
