Buzzsaw CD Ripper

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Although you can find less-restrictive and more-sophisticated CD rippers, this program offers enough basic functionality to get the job done. The nonresizable interface won't wow anyone with its pedestrian design, but its few buttons mean you won't waste time learning to use this program. Buzzsaw CD Ripper converts tracks into WAV, MP3, and OGG files, but neglects the popular WMA codec, a format supported by most similar applications. The program demonstrated decent speed in our tests, encoding a five-minute track in about a minute. Buzzsaw CD Ripper can retrieve track and artist information from online databases and lets you configure the audio quality of the output files. We were glad to see support for the space-saving VBR mode, but we wished the trial version allowed you to convert more than 15 tracks. You could get stuck with a far-worse ripping program, but you can certainly do better.
