"When settings are right does a good job."
If you havethe settings right for any given conversion, it seems able to rip nearly all DVDs you can chuck at it.
If you have the wrong settings (and I can find no definitive way of getting the right settings other than by trial and error or sticking with the defaults (not big enough on PC) you usually end up with good picture and sound that is out of sync.
I have pretty much given up on AOA even though I paid for the full version and tend to use Slysoft's AnyDVD/CloneDVD mobile. Though that program has a few problems with certain DVDs (Terminator 2, Cars and Memoirs of a Geisha for example). The big plus with CloneDVD mobile is that it usually tanscodes perfectly and the sound is not out, but there are some it just cannot transcode. AOA DVD Ripper seems to be able to read most DVDs but I seem to be constantly deleting the rips because the sound is out by anything up to a few seconds. Which is VERY frustrating when you have spent 2 hours ripping a DVD only to end up deleting the output file.
