    "Weak Software"

    July 24, 2009  |   By papalsa

    Version: HandBrake 0.9.1

    Pros

    Free to use

    Cons

    Difficult to beginner

    Summary

    HandBrake is very popular, I can see it on many website, this is benefit from free, on the other hand, it is difficult to use for many beginner, lack support and weak stability. HandBrake attend technology and ignore interface. I consider iFunia is better than it.

    "Great but be careful with Vista"

    June 29, 2009  |   By rpghsr

    Version: HandBrake 0.9.1

    Pros

    It is designed for Vista, but lots of things do not work for me in Vista unless I change settings somewhere. I set my "presets" to "Normal". It works great on a MacBook. I keep my PC around for my wife.

    Cons

    If you are using Windows Vista, you have to go to the Compatibility tab under properties, set the compatibility to run in Windows XP SP 2, and also select Run as Administrator (at the bottom of the Compatibility tab.)

    Summary

    Handbrake is a fantastic program especially after you experiment for a while. The problem, if you use Windows Vista, which is a sorry program, settings have to be changed. I have used it on over 20 movies and put my DVD originals in a safe place. It is great to take my movies on the road. Each file takes about 2 to 3 GB.

    "Good But not as good as DVD Catalyst"

    June 21, 2009  |   By TheActress2004

    Version: HandBrake 0.9.1

    Pros

    Copies home DvDs

    Cons

    Can't do a back up of the movies you buy

    Summary

    Hey it's a cool idea but if i were you i would try DVD Catalyst...i mean i get the whole protection thing but if you bought the DVD there should be something out there to back up your copy without charging you. I included this website even though it says it's a Palm phone freeware site this program will allow you to choose what type of file you want to make what you burn.So you can choose palm, iphone, ipods, zune, psp, or what ever here it is:

    "It didn't work at all"

    June 6, 2009  |   By mikeperryyy

    Version: HandBrake 0.9.1

    Pros

    None, there are no pros

    Cons

    It didn't do anything at all, it looked like maybe there was an error, but it just kept saying encoding complete.

    yet no video.

    Summary

    don't waste your time

    "GREAT for what it is, easy to use,somehow I needed this"

    March 30, 2009  |   By aanrewh

    Version: HandBrake 0.9.1

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Multiple formats
    Simple, if you want it to be.
    Any DVD
    Can do complex stuff

    Cons

    Has to be on a DVD, but then that's what it's for (vs. file on your computer)
    Takes a very long time to encrypt
    Slows down your computer during process
    Can get confusing

    Summary

    Handbrake is a simple, easy to use tool for getting home movies on to your iPod, and seems like the kind of thing you would use every now and then, like to a family gathering when you just HAVE to show everybody this thing your dog did, but don't want to have to use the DVD player. I don't see myself using the options for XBox or any other format, but i guess if you have a DVD but not a DVD player, it might be useful. The only other ones i might use are television, Apple TV (if i had one) and just the normal one to get it onto my computer plain and simple (but of course, nothing commercial). If I had a PSP, i would probably use that too, if i wanted to show off a video on my PSP, which i really can't imagine doing. Over all though, its definetly a worthy download, with advanced features that are great if you know how to use them, but a straight foward interface if you ignore them
