Editors' review

MP3 Converter is a streamlined program that allows you to convert files between several different formats and at varying levels of quality. This makes it possible for you to play your files on different types of devices with different programs.

Pros

Clean interface: This app presents a streamlined interface, with clear options for adding files, selecting output format and quality, and then beginning the conversion process. Files to be converted are listed in the middle of the window, so you can see what you've completed already, at a glance.

Cons

No conversion status: Once you click convert, you have no way of knowing the status of the conversion. While most of these are completed quickly, it would be nice if there was some way to see where in the process each file was.

Not many options: Compared to other file conversion programs, this one offers relatively few options for file output types. The only ones available are WAV, OGG, M4A, WMA, and AAC.

Failed conversions: Some of the conversions we attempted failed without any explanation from the app. The files just weren't converted and didn't save.

Bottom Line

MP3 Converter can be useful if you need to convert files between MP3 format and one of the others supported in the app. It's also free, so there's not much harm in trying it out for a bit to see if it will work for you. But there are other programs out there that offer nicer features and more conversion options. So it may be worth looking into some others, as well, especially if you do a lot of conversions and want to be able to monitor their progress.

    "Doesn't work"

    May 12, 2014   |   By md00bm

    Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

    Pros

    Nothing has been good about this program.

    Cons

    It never works. It installed several toolbars on my computer even though I declined the offers in the installer. Slowed down my computer and the toolbars are next to impossible to uninstall. Absolute garbage.

    Summary

    Don't install this program. There are plenty of other programs available that do the same thing and won't mess up your computer.

    "Worthless, waste of time."

    February 11, 2014   |   By heynickmail

    Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

    Pros

    Seems to manage to spit out an mp3 after you finally get everything worked out.

    Cons

    Can't drag files onto it. You have to add them one at a time or an entire folder at once. Then when you try to remove items you don't want to convert, it instead removes random files.

    Every time you run the conversion it resets back to WAV at medium quality. So if you are doing a few different folders you have to remember to fix all of these settings every time.

    Finally, the converted file has no tags. Even though I was converting from one file type that supports tags to another, the tags did not carry over. Complete waste of time.

    Summary

    Impossible to use. Don't even bother. I can't even figure out how someone could make such an awful program.

    "Needs more configuration / remove crapware"

    January 12, 2014   |   By IainPurdie

    Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

    Pros

    Nothing, really.

    Cons

    Can't automatically rename files/folders based on tags.
    Can't control bit rate of conversion (only sample size and rate).
    Tries to install *five* bits of crapware during installation. Seriously? Is this down to C-Net or the authors? Either way, STOP IT.

    Summary

    There are better converters out there than this one, and from sources that don't try to litter your system with crapware.

    "BEWARE! finally had to do a system restore to get rid."

    December 15, 2013   |   By jillydub

    Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

    Pros

    didn't leave it on my computer long enough to try it.

    Cons

    4 or 5 other spam apps that come with it when you download. obnoxious redirect pages every time you open a new tab in your browser. ANNOYING.

    Summary

    save yourself the hassle and just pay for a download that isn't full of advertising junk apps.

    "Excellent Mp3 Converter"

    November 18, 2013   |   By Audiecee

    Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

    Pros

    1st of all, the conversion process was a lot faster than I thought it be, and the gui was extremely easy to understand. 2nd it worked on windows 7 smoothly (I had trouble with some other mp3 converters here on cnet) so that was good. 3rd, the main job of converting my m4a sound files to mp3 was done with no problems. No errors or anything.

    Cons

    The bitrate option could of been a bit more customizable in my eyes.

    I have none

    Summary

    I recommend it to all users needing to convert from flv to mp3. Works flawlessly, fast conversion process, also good quality output files.
