Editors' review

Although it handles its main job without incident and supports a decent number of audio codecs, this ripper/converter has a poorly designed interface that may turn some users off. Mini-stream Ripper's main window is merely a small, nonresizable, gray box with menu items for Load, Batch, and Convert. Although you can use the Load button to queue up files, you also can simply drag and drop them to the main window. Clicking the Batch button lets you convert multiple files into MP3, WAV, WMA, OGG, RM, and FLAC formats at the quality of your choice, whereas the Convert icon allows you to transform single files. We wonder why all conversions can't be handled from the same menu item. Also, though the application does rip CDs, you'll have to browse to your drive to do so, as the interface lacks a dedicated icon for extracting tracks. We also were disappointed to discover the ripping tool can't retrieve song information from the Web and that the demo will convert only six files at a time. Still, since this program does what it promises, we think savvier users may find it worth downloading.

    Version: Mini-Stream Ripper 2.7.4

    Pros

    The Mini Stream Ripper was just what I was looking for. Something that does what it says it is suppose to, easy to use and fast. I don't need eye candy or all the bells and whistles to be satisfied. This program does all I need it to do and I don't need to take a course to learn how to operated it. I give it an A+.

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing.
