Our Review of Aimersoft DVD Ripper

Comprehensive is a good way to describe the Aimersoft DVD Ripper. The program is an excellent investment for movie lovers who need an all-in-one and easy-to-use productive DVD video application to rip and convert DVD to video and convert video to a wide range of popular video formats supported by a portable media player or mobile.

Rip any DVDs, no matter the device. Ripping DVDs to HD formats is also possible.

The program features a simple and straightforward interface with all editing tools displayed together with a video preview screen located at the right section. Users can load DVD and edit accordingly. The application allows users to utilise various editing features such as clipping one file into multiple segments, trimming a movie, cropping video, merging multiple files into one, adjusting video effects such as brightness, contrast and saturation, adding effects like Gray, Emboss, Negative or Old Film style, editing image watermark, capturing images from video files, and so on. You’l have the original view and the Output preview right there for you so you can see exactly how thins will look before you commit to it.

The program offers a very large output formats selection: MP4,MOV,M4V,H.264 for YouTube,WMV, MP3, WAV,etc. to both video and only audio output extractions. iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Nokia N8, Motorola Droid, PSP, PS3, iPod, AppleTV, iRiver PMP, Zen, Archos, mobile phone, etc. formats are supported by this program. Ripping DVDs to HD formats is also possible.

Aimersoft is one of the fastest DVD ripping programs we’ve tested to date. With NVIDIA® CUDATM technology, conversion is processed on NVIDIA’s GPU instead of your computer’s CPU, leaving more of your CPU available to handle other applications. This means six-times-faster standard and high-definition video conversion, higher quality, and smoother playback for all video.

Size issue aside the quality of the movie playing on my iPad was excellent… Very, very nice quality, audio and video are in sync just fine.The ripping quality is impressive and at par with the best programs listed on iPadinTouch.

Aimersoft DVD Ripper sells for $35.95, that’s a bit high compared to others out there, but if you consider all that it can do in addition to just converting to your iPad it’s worth the cost. The program works well, it’s fast and it’s very easy to use, and of course the final result is near DVD quality, what more could you ask for?!
