"Best I could find. Provides Source Code"

May 04, 2011  |  By DanABQ

 |  Version: fre:ac 1.0.18

Pros

This converter seems to work. script capable. open source. Decent speed. I have a Latitude D630 Core 2 Duo, with XP Pro. Converted 200min of WMA from DVD into MP3 in a 15-20minute time-frame (with nothing else running).

Cons

No fancy pictures

Summary

I would highly recommend this piece of open source rather than use the other free converters on CNET. At least I know what goes into this product, and it is free. However, if you need really fast speed or additional fancy features, look elsewhere and perhaps pay a little bit.

"Gets the job done well, nothing fancy"

April 08, 2011  |  By FstrthnU

 |  Version: fre:ac 1.0.18

Pros

Relatively simple interface
Works with tons of formats
Fast
Doesn't use much resources for the job (lightweight)
Doesn't overload you with options
gives lots of info quick and easy
Drag-and drop capability

Cons

Maybe it could look a little nicer, but that's a small price to pay for ease of use and navigation. I mean, the window bar is windows-98 style, but I'll take easy over too complex any day

Summary

It's not totally revolutionary or perfect, it just gets the job it's designed to do well.

"Best out there"

April 07, 2011  |  By freakingnutcase

 |  Version: fre:ac 1.0.18

Pros

Many formats
Highly customizable
FREE
Batch processing with all the info you need right in front of you

Many more good stuff which I can't think of right now

Cons

Sure it has some glitches and It doesn't look that great but sound aint about looks.
I dare you find something better for this price, I guarantee you won't.

Summary

Trust me best converter out there, don't waste your time looking.

"It worked the first time. Second time it bombed out."

April 05, 2011  |  By tmlpjj

 |  Version: fre:ac 1.0.18

Pros

It worked the first time.

Cons

Second time it bombed out. I tried their uninstaller and got red flagged. Then I used advanced system care uninstaller, and ASC could not find FREAC to uninstall.

Summary

This is a BAD program for my computer.

Updated on Apr 5, 2011

I just went thru Advanced System Care's Sandbox procedure to uninstall freac and it was successful.
