Editors' Review

+

Acala DVD Ripper Professional Free Copy is a free DVD ripper. It's an easy-to-use program for ripping some DVD videos and converting them into a number of video formats, as well as ripping the audio into popular audio formats.

The interface is good, though very simple in appearance. We were able to understand the layout and navigate it easily, but getting started was a little difficult without the tutorial video. The tutorial video doesn't completely match the free version we downloaded, but the steps are pretty much the same. Without it, we probably wouldn't have known how to set up the subtitles or even how to start recording. In our testing, the recording process took about an hour for a 3-hour video. You can also have the computer shut down after recording, so you can set it up to work and walk away. The software was stable and didn't have any issues while we were testing it. The video produced was good-quality as well.

Downloading this software is free, though you can register it. We aren't sure how different the registered version is, but the free version seems to work just fine for even a novice user once you watch the quick tutorial video. All the keys seem to be accessible even in the free version. Acala's download process includes a toolbar installation option, which is not necessary and would have been installed if we hadn't read through carefully. We would recommend this to anyone as long as they watch the tutorial video.

"Mediocre Product, added unauthorized malware/plugins"

November 29, 2015  |  By j-shep16

 |  Version: Acala DVD Ripper Professional 6.3.7.326

Pros

It did rip the DVD at least.

Cons

It cut off the very beginning of what it ripped. BUT it ripped the whole DVD twice in a row so it was twice as long, so I'll have to go in with a video editor to fix it. In addition, it installed (without asking me at all) a program called More Results Hub which also installed add-ons to all my browsers AND changed all my default search engines. I have been working for at least an hour to get my computer to back to where I was before this AWFUL program and it's sneak attack Malware got in there. I'm sure that's how it's free, but if you don't want a bunch of crap installed and changing your settings, DO NOT use this software. I've un-installed the initial program and removed the plugins from chrome and firefox, but I cannot get it out of Internet Explorer. (The remove option is disabled.) Not only is it sneaky, it's persistent. I'm so mad at this. I take good care of my computer, and this POS software that was mediocre in quality to begin with has now made some unwelcomed changes.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL THIS SOFTWARE UNLESS YOU HATE YOUR COMPUTER. A respectable computer user should most definitely look for something better than this. I don't trust ANY program that sneaks extra things onto your computer. And the functionality wasn't that good anyway. It did the job, but I know I've used better ones in the past. (Not in years though.) STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROGRAM.

REPEAT. DO. NOT. INSTALL. THIS. PROGRAM.
