"Fast as fast can be"

March 11, 2011  |  By room237

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

More or less with convert any audio file, I was also able to rip audio from a file i had ripped from DVD. The best sound conversion out there. Its fast, simple and pain free. You will love it.

Cons

There are none and despite at least one comment i read about this being Virused? well download the genuine version from the genuine NCH site or here at CNET. Have no worries there are no such virus's in this and i have always used NCH products.

Summary

14 day trial fair play to NCH for that, but please once 14 day trial is up if you like it then buy it. It is good that this company gives you unrestricted access to its software so support NCH and buy the product if it has benefitted you.

"EASY TO USE SOFTWARE THAT WORKS!"

August 13, 2009  |  By SecureY

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

Awesome little piece of software, works very well and i'm very happy. Looked at other products but choose this one as it seemed O.K....after using it i upgraded to the PLUS version paid a very small fee to say thank you. Good software & easy to use!

Cons

None that i found......works very well!

Summary

I'm a strong believer in giving back, in today's world if a company can provide you with a great software solution and help make life easy and they let you use there program for FREE with no pressure to buy........if it works well and does the job, why not support them and upgrade if there is such an option.

I would have spent days looking if it was not for CNET.....i did do a google search but was not impressed by what i saw......more i did not TRUST what i saw until i saw NCH the company behind Swtich, checked them out and was very happy to download use and then upgrade to the PLUS version as a way of giving back.

There have so many other software solutions that i found interesting and i did try there video converter to convert .FLV video files to .wav video files....which was brilliant.

THANK YOU and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

"Does what it says it does"

August 10, 2009  |  By HeiLong

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

Very simple UI. Just choose the directory you want it to convert the files to, drag the files into the program UI, click the convert button and you're done!

Cons

Haven't found any.

Summary

Since the only thing that you have to invest is time (for downloading and installing), this program is great!

"Works very easy and smooth"

August 09, 2009  |  By BillytheB

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

Easy to use and converts audio files of almost any format - flawlessly. The default setting of 128 bps fixed is the quickest conversion.

Cons

None found.

Summary

For a test, I converted wma to mp3 and then the new mp3 back to wma and then the new wma back to mp3 -- NO loss of quality at the last conversion. Even other conversion programs admit theirs cannot do this without significant loss of quality.

"A trial masquerading as free software"

August 08, 2009  |  By saint_sinner

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

Fast conversions

Cons

Too many advertisements, pop-ups.

Summary

Scam. If You advertise it as free then it should be free, not a trial period. Uninstalled it minutes after installing because of annoyances to buy it.

"Does what it does, but has a price: virus"

August 07, 2009  |  By Deathfire138

 |  Version: Switch Sound File Converter 2.01

Pros

It does what it's supposed to do in an easy to figure out user interface, not only does it do what it does, but it does it fast! really fast!

Cons

Although it seems like a great product, it comes with a price: Virus. This virus/spyware will try to connect through your internet to do whatever the virus is programmed to do. From my experiences, it brings up tons and tons of tabs in your browser.

Summary

Good, unless you don't have a firewall/anti spyware/malware/trojan program.
