I downloaded this program to convert DVDs for use on our iProducts and could do so without reading the manual. I haven't yet needed it for anything else so I'm completely satisfied with the turn out and happy that its free! I'm 28 for 28 on DVDs I've converted so far. The conversion times are long, but are right on track with some Windows based conversion products I've used in the past. The interface 'could' be more user-friendly.

Pros
  • Simple interface
  • Easy transition
  • Glitch/problem free
Cons
  • Long conversion times
