    "Use to be good"

    April 16, 2014   |   By DarkDreamsMistress

    Version: RipIt 1.6.1

    Pros

    o When it works it works wonderfully
    o Simply easy to use

    Cons

    o No recent updates
    o Large # of movies it will no longer back-up.
    o Disney Movies all fail to back-up now

    Summary

    I've been a RipIt user for a number of years. When I first started using it you simply would submit discs that didn't work and shortly thereafter they'd release an update that fixed it. But I noticed that once they started offering this App in various combo offerings with other products the updates basically stopped. Today this app still works but if you want to back-up a Disney movie forget it.

    Handbrake is becoming the only option for most discs as time stretches on with no updates

    "Did everything I needed it to do, easily and error free"

    December 31, 2012   |   By hasoocheck

    Version: RipIt 1.6.1

    Pros

    I wanted to backup my DVD movies onto my iMac and use with my apple TV using iTunes.
    This product was so easy to use and didn't overwhelm me with options - I have used handbrake quite a bit - Ripit has less fine tuning, but converted the DVD's into m4v's for iTunes in 1 step - after setting up only a few options, then its just insert the DVD, click compress, and it does the rest.
    I have played a few of my converted DVD's on the my 53" HDTV through apple TV and the quality is good - not blu-ray by any means but for a true digital on-demand style library of my dvd collection - I am pleased. And now I can use the files on my phone and tablets too.
    It gave me 10 free rips, after that I actually purchased the full version so I could complete my entire library.

    Cons

    1. Less flexibility than handbrake - to some, this may be an issue but to me, all i wanted was a 1-step DVD to iTunes import and this works in that way.
    2. Takes about 50-70 min from ripping, compressing, to appear in iTunes (I think pretty standard)
    3. Would be useful if there was an option to add the DVD cover art and some of the file tag information - but this is easily done post with iTunes also

    "Throw Away Your Money :D"

    July 08, 2012   |   By K1LLM4CUS3RS

    Version: RipIt 1.6.1

    Pros

    Its a Way You Can Waste $20, I would personally recommend donating it to charity before you go and waste your money on this. Unless of course if your a "Apple Fan", in which case your very used to throwing money away on such tedious things.

    Cons

    There are many great freeware utilities to rip dvds with more options, and are much more reliable, did I mention it was free. This program especially rips off free open source programs and dumps it into one small, little option, piece of garbage. Try HandBreak, its awesome, and its free.

    Summary

    Do not buy this garbage, go for the free feature filled option of HandBreak: http://handbrake.fr/

    "Handy, fast and simple to use."

    January 22, 2012   |   By Old Phart

    Version: RipIt 1.6.1

    Pros

    I am pretty much non-technical and have had absolutely no problems with this software. My question to those who bemoan not being able to use backups on Windows: If you have a Mac, why would you ever go back to Windows? If you need to run Win programs, use Win XP under Virtual Box from Oracle on your Mac. Its faster than native WIN. I converted to Mac after Vista and have never looked back.

    Ripit does everything it claims and with a great, simple GUI. It is fast and appears bug-free, if you use it as instructed. Well worth what they charge for it. You won't be sorry you bought this. Unless, of course, you are a Windows devotee, in which case you should be used to disappointments.

    No, I do not work for Ripit or Apple.

    Cons

    Haven't found any, but then, my needs are not exotic. Just backups.

    Summary

    This is a good, solid program and handles discs I couldn't do with Handbrake. I am very happy with it.

    Cons

    Does not burn some DVD's

    Summary

    I would recommend this program for Mac.

    "Can't Use Your Backup on Windows"

    September 20, 2011   |   By nathagt

    Version: RipIt 1.5.5

    Pros

    Gives you a simple and quick DVD backup of most DVDs

    Cons

    The backups won't play on Windows 7. They play fine on Mac OSX but who backs up movies only playable on one operating system. I emailed support and they basically said "it's for Mac, oh well."

    Summary

    Fine if you never plan to watch your movies on a different operating system I suppose.

    "Waste of money"

    September 17, 2011   |   By BongoMonogo

    Version: RipIt 1.5.5

    Pros

    Cute icon but the product is quite inferior.

    Cons

    Does not live up to its claims at all.

    Summary

    Unfortunately a colossal waste of money. Colossal rip-off. Fairmount and VLC are much more efficient. They too fail on many DVD's, but not like ripit.

    "Didn't work converting DVD to m4v"

    June 21, 2011   |   By Burrmantom

    Version: RipIt 1.5.5

    Pros

    Seemed fast, but maybe that's because it wasn't working correctly

    Cons

    Didn't work as advertised

    Summary

    Tried to rip a movie I own to m4v. Like the PR says, it would be much nicer to have it on my Mac/iPad. I selected the Video Target as iPad in the preferences. It didn't work. Help was useless. Going back to HandBrake

    "Worked well for DVD to iPad"

    June 01, 2011   |   By AceofThumbs

    Version: RipIt 1.5.5

    Pros

    Only used it 3 times, but it has worked well. Great quality iPad videos. Easy to use with just one click to rip and compress multiple chapters from DVD to iPad format.

    Cons

    The only issue I've had may be the fault of my external DVD drive. RipIt wasn't seeing the DVD, but if I opened the DVD in the Finder it would start to work. I'm thinking my drive was sleeping and Finder woke it so it became available to RipIt.

    Summary

    Works well. Just the one issue and it had an easy workaround. It would be nice if RipIt could do this without having to do the Finder trick, but overall very happy.
