CNET Editors' review
AoA Media's Easy DVD Converter can convert entire DVDs or just the parts you want, and save them in a wide range of formats, including high-quality files, widely compatible file types, and even Flash video for sharing online. It can also extract and save audio tracks from DVD movies. Easy DVD Converter is shareware that is free to try, though the trial version limits conversions to 10 minutes of video. The latest release, Version 3.0, features a new engine, and it's also compatible with Windows 8.
Easy DVD Converter's user interface is small and fairly plain, though it packs a lot in a compact layout, starting with a main window displaying file data under columns we could drag to resize. Strangely, we couldn't resize or maximize the interface, though the main window's scroll bar expands with the column headings. Stranger still, the title bar misspells the program's name as "Ease DVD Converter."
We clicked the Help file and selected Step-by-Step Guide (DVD to DivX) but the page wouldn't open. The Web site link didn't offer much in the way of help, either, though it did offer some basic information about the program's capabilities. But Easy DVD Converter is easy enough to figure out. The conversion process has three modes: Entire, Clip, and Chapters. You simply select Output Mode from a drop-down list, choose or browse to an Output Directory, and press Start. Settings include various video options as well as general System Preferences and Advanced Options. Like similar tools, Easy DVD Converter offers preconfigured profiles for a wide range of devices, but you can also change the settings for each -- something many other tools omit. Audio and subtitle controls complete the layout.
We inserted a disc and pressed Load DVD. The Clip selector made it easy to set start and end times. Despite the trial limit, Easy DVD Converter did a neat job of converting scenes from a DVD and saving them in useful formats. If you like watching movies on your phone or creating animated GIFs to post online, Easy DVD Converter is a good place to start.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Easy DVD Converter 3.0.

Very fast and effective utility and provides 24*7 customer support which helps a lot to work without facing any problem. I copied few DVDs and it took only 40 minutes to finish the task for each one.
It provides only 10 minutes of video conversion in trial version.
