123 PDF Converter

CNET Editors' review

123PDFConverter promises users a simple solution to the problem of converting PDF files into easy-to-use Word files. While this process may sound difficult and complicated, this fantastic program distills the operation into something practically every user can operate.

This program's simple interface makes conversion into child's play. The opening screen allows users to select what PDF they want to use by browsing their hard drive and then also select where the DOC file will be saved. From there users begin to convert. A series of screens lead you through the process, ensuring that everything is perfect. Users designate a layout (Flowing text, formatted text, text-only and as-is), next they choose whether they want images to appear, whether character spacing should remain and conversion range of pages. Finally, all the options are laid out on one screen for review before conversion begins.

From this point the program shows a meter detailing the stages of conversion. The program quickly and effectively creates Word documents in our tests.

The trial version has a slim 14-use trial, but the simplicity of using it makes this enough time to fully evaluate the program's capabilities. 123PDFConverter is an easy-to-use program that lets users of all skill levels achieve the same results. Because of its simplicity and effectiveness, we highly recommend this program for download.

    September 15, 2011  |   By tonytunison

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    I was able to open the file and convert the text but it had problems with the graphics

    Cons

    problems with graphics that you needed to go into file and delete hundreds of remnants that were left when it went to convert graphics

    Summary

    Good not great but it worked for the text and kept the formatting whereas able2convert did not work at all, it would not open the file

    "Really about 123FilePRo for Microsoft Office 2010"

    September 6, 2011  |   By mefell

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    None at all the product does not work. It crashes to a Microsoft error or starts a PDF conversion without having a document (even) selected. Cannot find any converted files anywhere on my system. It's a mess.

    Cons

    Keeps crashing with a Microsoft error. I have repeatedly asked for assistance from 123 which included a refund without any luck.

    Summary

    I can't even get them to assist me restore to the old 2009 version (need a product key) despite advising them that I can no longer produce PDF articles.

    Further, though I have been promised a refund I have not received the refund nor are they responding to me emails about this ongoing issue.

    Almost fraudulent in my view. I purchased in good faith. They have my money and I have nothing in return not to mention their product prevents me from undertaking my work.

    This new version and the lack of customer care and assistance tells me to stay well away from this product and its company.

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    It gave amazing results and did not crash like others

    Cons

    "TERRIBLE! Had to use system restore."

    August 7, 2011  |   By divres

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    Admire their deceptiveness...totally invades various program menus (Word, Acrobat), won't uninstall.

    Cons

    Wish I had read other negative reviews first. Doesn't work at all (gives error messages no matter what), invades your system in various ways, does not uninstall even after deleting download.

    Summary

    Save yourself the aggravation and don't touch it.

    "Light on pocket and easy to use"

    July 31, 2011  |   By adrianstewart30

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    It does not cost much and has very simplified and useful features. It converts documents very efficiently with superb quality.

    Cons

    None at the moment

    Summary

    The simple right click conversion is really convenient as you do not have to open the software to convert files. There are numerous useful features like adding watermark, for which many buy standalone programs, comes inside this wonderful software.

    "Another piece of crippled trial software"

    July 23, 2011  |   By hughnile

    Version: 123 PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    Don't know--can't fully evaluate it as it is crippled. After just losing $108 on (Docudesk) another piece of crippled trial software--won't do that again. And just try to get hold of anyone at Docudesk.

    Cons

    Can only convert 3 pages max. I just bought another (Docudesk) with this limitation and the first 3 pages were OK then after I bought it I converted the full pdf and there were numerous problems. So I am not going to fall for that one again.

    Summary

    If you are going have a trail then have a full trial not a crippled version. Will not even try crippled versions in the future.
