PROS: All-In-One Ripper and Converter. Converts Both DVD and BlueRay to any format needed. Very good Image Crop Functionality. Watermark and image adjustment features.
CONS: Ripping seems a bit slow. Though it runs on 64bit platform, there’s no native 64bit support, which would be preferable. Added Subtitles are embedded into the movie instead of saved as a separate file.VERDICT: A truly great All in One Product, that deliver what it promise, and then some.

PRICE: $45.49
