DeskUNPDF Converter

CNET Editors' review

DeskUNPDF Professional is a sleek-looking program matched by its intuitive and effective interface. This program will have users effortlessly converting their files thanks to its simplicity and direction.

This program has a beautiful design that lives up to its professional billing. With a dark border and a short string of control icons along the top, users will most likely not need the brief tutorial at the start of the program or the User Guide. To convert, users simply choose the Open icon to pick a file. Clicking on the Convert icon next does all the hard work. In between selecting a file and converting it, users are given a wealth of options that manage to enlighten instead of overwhelm. From a small box along the left side, users can choose to convert their file to a DOC, JPEG, XLS or a number of other file formats by simply clicking a radio button and navigating a simple drop-down menu. Files are quickly converted exactly as they appeared in their previous form, and require no annoying cleanup of strange letters or other unwanted material.

Our only turn off to DeskUNPDF was that it didn't ask us where to store the converted file. However, we found that tiny misstep easy to forgive thanks to the program's ease. You're only allowed to convert up to three pages during the trial, but you'll get a clear picture of how well the program works. There are many PDF conversion programs available for download and this is among the best.

    "Produces terrible result most the time. Use Acrobat."

    August 21, 2013  |   By MarkBiomedical

    Version: DeskUNPDF Converter 2012

    Pros

    Cheaper than a good product. Friendly (not useful) replies.

    Cons

    bad output, unfriendly interface, weird support. Useless for actual work we need to do.

    Summary

    If you have a business, you can not afford to have a product this bad. The price of Acrobat is much lower now and it works great. I am tossing this investment in the trash.

    "Decent program, shady company"

    June 27, 2013  |   By jefhart

    Version: DeskUNPDF Converter 2012

    Pros

    Works if you can get it to install correctly.

    Cons

    Docudesk is worthless. I installed a new hard drive and it said I had to reactivate it so I found my activation code and then it said I had installed it too many times(?). I finally gave in and purchased it again. Well I got an email receipt that said "activation code: ". So I emailed support and they still haven't gotten back with me. The worst part if the activation screen instructions: "IF you have received an activation code enter it in the box below." There should never be an "if".

    Summary

    Screw this company. Just pirate it if you have to have it, because if you pay for it there is no guarantee it will work.

    "Done with DocuDesk"

    July 5, 2012  |   By Topstan

    Version: DeskUNPDF Converter 2012

    Pros

    Works good if you have a cracked version.

    Cons

    Their extremely annoying DRM scheme.

    Summary

    I am done with Docudesk. Downloaded the new version for my new computer. Used my previously purchased activation key and it barfed and sent me to Docudesk as it does for all of their products. Then you have to enter all your info and then you have to wait until they deign to get back to you with a new code. Well, I am not waiting this time. I have deleted all my Docudesk products and will look at the other, plentiful (some free) options.
