Editors' Review

If you watch a lot of video on your computer, a decent video converter is an absolute necessity. But if you also watch a lot of video on your smartphone or tablet, or like to make DVDs, or find yourself constantly saving bits of video for later, a decent video converter isn't good enough. You need a good one. Like Xilisoft's Video Converter Ultimate. It's on the high side of premium video converters for home use, but you get what you pay for, which in this case means automatic profiles enhanced for just about any device or format, automatic graphics card detection and acceleration, video editing, and more. The full-featured Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate is free to try, but conversions are limited to three minutes, which is plenty of time to see how the software works.

Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate opened with a message identifying our AMD graphics card and automatically enabling compatible graphics acceleration - a good start, by any measure. We could easily disable the acceleration with a click or two, of course, but we recommend owners of AMD/ATI or Nvidia CUDA graphics cards let the converter's built-in GPU detection take advantage of all available processing power, since it can improve video quality. Xilisoft's user interface bears a family resemblance to other video converters, but it's much better designed and rendered, with crisp, attractive icons and excellent functionality. The program opened with a Getting Started Guide: Step 1, choose a profile from a drop-down list with just about every option you could ask for, starting with the default choice, iPod. Many of the formats showed the AMD APP logo, signifying compatibility with enhanced graphics. Needless to say, we started with some of those. We keep a folder of sample videos for converting, which lets us compare both conversion time and quality. Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate's trial limitation kept us from judging its conversion speed - let's just call it "fast." Our converted videos played normally and with excellent quality.

Xilisoft is probably justified in calling its video converter the Ultimate. It's as least as good as the others we've tried, and better than most.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 7.7.0.20130109.

"Horror video results"

March 20, 2014  |  By Checkit999

 |  Version: Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 7.7.3.20131014

Pros

None for video, OK for audio extracting

Cons

Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate basically converts too fast and is not doing complete passes. The video is too smooth and lacks the sharp effects of the source.

Black backgrounds convert in to dark gray type of defectiveness. I really think this converter is mainly for speed and not quality

Summary

This is not a quality converter. It's nothing more than a fast computer video writer
