Pro Free features that competitors lock behind paywalls
ivsEdits is frame accurate and has audio feedback on Timeline scrub. These are basic features that several free competitors miss.

The layout is impressive, and that impression sticks throughout, especially when it comes to multiple live camera inputs.
Pro The UI is very easy and intuitive
It is very easy to add effects and transitions.
Pro A great free option
One of the better free options for editing video.
Con Interface is not as straightforward as it could be
VSDC exposes a lot of information. And a good amount of that information is non-essential. That results in a slightly cluttered interface that can get in the way of actually editing the material. Similarly, some workflow conventions are dated. For example, cutting a clip needs a separate interface. All of that combined ends in having to learn a lot more about the software before it can be used.
Con Windows only
Although it supports all versions of Windows, Mac and Linux users will have find another video editor, since ivsEdits is not cross platform.
Con Limited free version
The free version is limited (compared to the full version) in what formats it can export, as well as supported capture formats and bundled apps. This is to be expected though as the pro version is a professional geared app that costs €800.
