    "Probably the best PDF Converter on the market."

    November 28, 2011  |   By 1reporter

    Version: BCL easyConverter Desktop 1.0

    Pros

    I've been using this for about 5 months. Works beautifully again and again.

    What prompted to post here now was that I just converted a complicated legal PDF with many checkboxes and box areas. And it converted all of those! Wow. How many PDF converters would do that? Not many I tried.

    The interface is baby-simple. The simplest of all similar products I've seen.

    Cons

    Haven't found any.

    Summary

    Love it. Highly recommended.

    "Purchase of online product is not advised."

    December 24, 2010  |   By Jaydee3728

    Version: BCL easyConverter Desktop 1.0

    Pros

    Perhaps the 3-page freebie version is worth the money (LOL).

    Cons

    My experience: the software converts to .rtf, not Word, and Word cannot read the .rtf. Only way to open the .rtf is in WordPad. In WordPad, as might be predicted, document lacks non-text and formatting of text is altered.

    Summary

    I purchased this product to convert a series of documents, some of them quite long and complex. Product is unable to handle an 8-page pdf with non-text inserts. Does not bode well for longer documents/more demanding tasks. Would advise use of pdftowordconverter.net instead -- free and effective.

    Summary

    "Very good Word output for a complicated format brochure"

    August 31, 2007  |   By husmani

    Version: BCL easyConverter Desktop 1.0

    Pros

    I converted a 2 page PDF brochure using BCL easyConverter to Microsoft Word. The output was very, very good. The brochure had multiple columns on one page and bulleted points in lists in addition to the main text on the front page. They all came through well. Columns and lists were retained as were the images. Fonts were preserved. The final output looked great, requiring only minor retouching.

    Cons

    One side list of bulleted points needed some reformatting although the text was all correctly converted. All other bulleted points in columns on page 2 came through great.
