    July 29, 2014

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    none whatsoever

    Cons

    This program highjacked my browser, attached pernicious adware, and I can't remove the ads even after I deleted this program. It is worthless and the ads are driving me insane!

    "Listen to the naysayers"

    March 02, 2014   |   By ThePreacherTheTeacher

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    none whatsover

    Cons

    Bloatware !!!

    Summary

    Regardless of the worth of EAC, This download is full of junkware. AVOID!!

    For ripping CD, iTunes and Windoes Media Player with error correction turned on will do just as well for ripping accuracy. Don't listen to the pointy-headed audiophiles!. If you like, get accuraterip and check you rips that way. YOU will find no problems

    "Warning - don't download this crap"

    April 24, 2013   |   By LobertRee

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    It's free.

    Cons

    1) resets your search engine from google to bing
    2) loads extra crap on your system that's not needed and not wanted
    3) asks you to pay for a subscription to download cd info from database, haha

    Summary

    This program is not even worth the price ($0.00)!!!

    "A top quality, bare-bones product."

    March 24, 2013   |   By frankb10

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    You probably won't find a superior audio file manaqer. I have not fully put this to the test, but judging from the feature set, reviews by experts, and my own limited use to date, I believe this provisionally.

    Cons

    Out of the box, this product won't provide now standard capabilities like seamless access to meta-data driven resources on the web. If you're willing to work around this, no problem, but EAC may not be best for those looking for ease-of-use. Look for later versions to plug these holes.

    Summary

    Great for dealing with challenging source files, not optimal for the faint-of-heart.

    "Has hardly changed since it's introduction."

    December 31, 2012   |   By pixelriffic

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    It's simple, and it's free

    Cons

    Crude and dated interface.

    Summary

    I wanted to experiment with some lossless audio from my CDs. I used this app years ago, when it was only one of a couple of options. Unfortunately, it's barely changed. Encoding into some formats, such as FLAC, require calling external software. App takes some setup before it can pull track info.

    Frankly, you be better off with a number of other apps out there, even the Apple and Windows native solutionns are so much better.

    "Good if not great"

    December 18, 2012   |   By benderrodriquez

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    Somewhat complicated to use but if you need it, you can get around that.

    Cons

    Overly complex.

    Summary

    I used it and I will continue using it. That more than I can say for some of the apps one downloads.

    "Naive assumptions in today's world"

    October 06, 2012   |   By astral69

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    Useful progamme.
    Pity the metadata is only 10 discs.

    It assumes that all wav files come on a CD, but not from a web site download

    Summary

    Useful tool.

    "It does what it says it will do"

    August 04, 2012   |   By 9344429000076

    Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

    Pros

    It is free & easy to use after just a bit of practice.

    Cons

    It is not particularly intuitive.

    Summary

    I used Ed Rhee's guide on Cnet. He seemed pretty happy with it. Some of it is not intuitive eg you click an icon labelled CMP if you want to convert the CD tracks to FLAC. CMP means "compressed".
    It did a good job & it is free.
