Editors' Review

+

AoA DVD Ripper sports an interface simple enough to use without consulting the Help file and powerful enough to batch rip DVDs and convert them for portable devices all in one fell swoop. It can also rip specific and user-defined scenes from movies, making it eminently useful in grabbing a particular scene for further study or enjoyment.

The spreadsheet layout is complemented not by tabs, as is the current style, but by helpful numbered buttons and steps. Export formats include the basics like AVI, WMV, and MPEG, as well as FLV, MP4, VCD, and SVCD. You can also use it to extract audio tracks, great for grabbing those memorable quotes. The audio codec used is user-determined, as is the video codec, giving the solid program a bit of a boost in the customization department. You can also set the aspect ratio and tweak other settings if need be.

Users have noted that their customer service has been quick and responsive in the past, and that the registration code works for at least several upgrades--if not longer. All of this makes AoA a highly recommended DVD ripper. Hopefully future editions will support the nascent Blu-ray and AoA will make it to the next generation of movie lovers.

"DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!"

April 27, 2010  |  By Eulipian

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

None. It's a total rip off.

Cons

Paid for this and when I updated it erased my licensed copy and installed a new copy that demanded payment. Total rip off.

"Waste Of Money !!"

September 25, 2009  |  By alongmire

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

It does rip.

Cons

That's all it does.

Summary

Payed 35 bucks for this terrible software. Although it rips, you will get a semi-distorted picture, your audio will be very noticeably off on most movies, their customer service sucks with no other point of contact other than through an e-mail address that they won't even respond to in days, and you will have wasted $35.00 to find that out. I wonder how credible CNET's software reviewers are to have given this program a 4 star rating. I will forever be skeptical at this point and take user reviews a lot more seriously. If you want an awesome DVD ripper use WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. I have downloaded the software on all 3 of my computers with a little skepticism at 1st because of it's not so user friendly looking interface, but I have found it to be the best of any DVD ripper software I have ever used. Both the picture and audio are perfect and it's very easy to use once you have figured out all of the settings and features, which does not take long to do. And as an added benefit it is free until the 30th of this month. Sorry AOA but you suck.

"Reliable, simple, high quality"

August 27, 2009  |  By Rick_Download

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

I tried a few of the dvd converter products that were availabe at the time. This program surpassed most of its competitors based upon ease, reliable, simple, high quality rips.

Cons

I missed the slider bar to be able to set start/end time (clip mode).

Summary

The user interface is fairly simple and the features for adjusting output quailty for file conversions are good. And with Vista, and did not experienced any difficulty with the program's compatibility.

"The setup was amazingly simple."

August 23, 2009  |  By Josiah_Addo

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

Install the program pick a directory and you can start encoding from there. The first time I tried to rip a dvd it said it was locked, but told me to try and run the dvd one time and then try ripping it again. Worked fine after that.

Cons

Free version comes only with 10min ripping time limit.

Summary

Easily lets you record the whole program, any chapter or chapters, or short clips. You can choose to record chapter 1, 3, 5, and 12, if you want to, and have it saved as one file/video, with automatic movement from one to the next OR you can have the program automatically save the chapters as separate file. This is a lot less work than other methods I've tried. I've tried Nero, Dr. Divx, and several others and I like AoA the best.

"NOT Freeware, just come on to buy overpriced product"

August 18, 2009  |  By filthy-beast

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

Unable to determine any Pros [because trial is so short (only 10 minutes) when you need to rip a large fgile, e.g. a movie, to determine quality].

Cons

Advertised as freeware, but is really a cheap misleading come on to buy very expensive, unrated and unrateable software

Summary

AVOID AVOID AVOID BEWARE, AoA sotware cannot be deleted after download.

"One of the best in the market"

August 18, 2009  |  By pk7935

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

Very flexible, easy to use, most bugs fixed. Has been in the market for a long time.

Cons

Audio sync problem. This is the only software in the market that has this problem. Although they offer a few ways to fix it, it is only slightly better than the older versions. Does not fix the whole movie ... sometimes.

Summary

I hope the software producer finds a way to fix the audio sync problem. Other than this problem, it is the best in the market - second to Format Factory.

"Not long enough trial time"

August 13, 2009  |  By Mogy52

 |  Version: AoA DVD Ripper SE 5.1.9

Pros

Didn't try in the end.

Cons

will only convert 10 mins of anything which doesn't give you chance to properly assess the product before lashing out payment for it.

Summary

opted not to use this product cannot see how 10 minutes of conversion time can give a true indication of the products capacity, The only way is to take a gamble and purchase it which I am not prepared to do.
