"Product Works Great"

September 06, 2011  |  By mskeys2xx3

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

Easy to convert to different formats

Cons

Trial version converts one song at a time. You have to wait 5 seconds between songs and click ok to move on to the next song.

Summary

Does exactly what I needed with out the annoying addition of interrupting my music to advertise for their product.

"REALLY doesn't work... seriously!"

August 28, 2011  |  By taylorscott1995

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

None, notta, zip.

Cons

It's dated software and no longer works.

Summary

When people say that this program "DOESN'T WORK" they mean that in in every literal sense. This must be a dated-timed program that has since expired. It loads the program, but does not function. The software designers need to submit a NEW version as this version has timed out.

There is nothing good about this program, unless you consider taking up hard drive space a good thing.

Nothing works

Summary

Don't waste your time downloading this software.

"Garbage, waste of time"

June 05, 2011  |  By jxluna

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

Awkward, terrible user interface, no instructions or help, useless.

Summary

After fifteen minutes of fiddling I was unable to get the program to convert even One .flac. I promptly uninstalled the program, and after downloading the "free flac to mp3 converter" I was able to convert the files immediately with no problem.

"Good for When You're In a Pinch and Plan to Uninstall"

June 02, 2011  |  By squatchman

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

Cute interface

Cons

Completely diabolical trialware behavior - Satan must be involved somehow. I used it once and uninstalled just on principle.

Summary

I needed a flac to wav conversion desperately and loaded this puppy in a hurry. Got the job done, but the developers want you to pay the 15 bucks in the worst kind of way - why not let the program behave normally for 15 days and disable until payment? I mean I was open-minded about paying for it until I discovered how they designed the trialware! Certainly made me stop and think.

Open-source flac conversion source code and gui's are out there - just google, learn to install, and enjoy flac for what it is really meant to be - FREE.

"Fast and easy."

September 25, 2010  |  By tampaneko

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

Quickly and easily converted a lot of my .flacs to .mp3 for use on my MP3 player. Was very easy to figure out how to use.

Cons

Without purchasing, you only get 15 days, which is fine. But during those 15 days when you decode a lot of files, after each one there is a wait and you have to press continue.

"Unforgiving trial version, but it gets the job done!"

April 18, 2010  |  By CourageCalf

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

Very easy to use.
Quick to install and get going right off the bat.
Converts the files beautifully.
Sexy interface.

Cons

Forces you to click "Continue" 5 seconds after each conversion unless you register the software.
15 days to use.

Summary

This is a review of the trial software, because I, like many, am cheap and don't want to pay 15 greens for a service you can find many duplicates of on the internet. That being said, this IS a trial software and comes with only half the ease and comfort of the fully registered product. However, 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter goes a bit overboard with their mechanics for getting you to buy the real deal... Getting it up and running is a cakewalk. After a few clicks and installing the device, you're ready to go and you can select the file(s) you want to convert in a matter of seconds. Then, simply click "Start" and BAM, the magic begins! This is where the trial software rears its ugly head and pisses you off. If you're uploading a number of files, prepare to sit at the computer for a long time, staring at 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter's admittedly attractive interface, because every file you convert requires 5 seconds of your time to wait and click "Continue" before moving onto the next file. This can be really freaking annoying if, for instance, you're converting an entire album or even library. Oh, and did I mention the trial software only lasts for 15 days? Because it does. Now, that's not really a problem if you're getting this for just one or two purposes and you don't use FLAC files very often, but if you DO, I would recommend purchasing the full version of this software. Its trial version is unforgiving, but it truly does a fine job of actually converting.

Bottom-line: Get this trial version if you want a quick and relatively painless solution to converting those weird, alien FLAC files to MP3 and you don't plan on doing it very often. Register the product if you want a permanent easy and reliable way to convert FLAC to MP3. Pass if you are cheap and impatient.

"Expensive nagware that sort of works..."

April 12, 2010  |  By poetfreak

 |  Version: 4Musics FLAC to MP3 Converter 4.1

Pros

Nice User Interface

Cons

Can't convert many flacs
Clunky incomplete uninstall
Incredibly annoying nags to get you to buy the thing make it completely unusable.
To Expensive

Summary

I have never bought a piece of software that constantly harasses me during the trial. It torks me off. It annoyed me so much I found another tool to do this for free. The interface is not as nice, but it was free and did not treat me like a crook for trying it.
