"Use to be good"

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


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


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"

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.


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"

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.


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.


Do not buy this garbage, go for the free feature filled option of HandBreak:

"Handy, fast and simple to use."

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.


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


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