Default Comparison among Top 3 Blu-ray rippers software.

Blu-ray as a new disc format has greater storage capacity, faster reading ad writing speed, and more safe data storage function. It becomes more and more popular in nowadays. However, there are so many Blu-ray products, then how to choose the right Blu-ray Ripper? In order to solve this problem,Through making efforts to search, study, test, and ****yze on numerous Blu-ray rippers, finally, according to my test results and customers'comments, I've summarized 4 of them which seem powerful and useful by comparison on its price, main functions and additional functions, and I hope it will facilitate everyone to get a more thorough understanding about Blu-ray Ripper.

Do you need rip Blu-ray? With the Prosperity of Blu-ray market, many software development companies have seized this opportunity and developed Blu-ray Ripper. With Blu-ray Ripper, you can rip Blu-ray to almost all the formats you need,such as AVI, DivX, XviD, DVD, WMV, MPEG4 MOV, MKV, FLV on more portable players, like iPod, iPhone, Gphone, Apple TV, PSP/PS3, Xbox, Mobile Phone, Mp3 Player.You can find many products of this kind by searching on the net. However, do these Blu-ray Rippers have the same quality and function? It is hard for ordinary consumers to distinguish the true from the false. For this reason, I write this article to instruct you how to rip Blu-ray reasonably.


From the table above, we can see there is no much difference among the three soft wares in price. But the comparison to the main functions made an obvious gap among them. We can see BestHD [url=***********]Blu-ray Ripper has the most direct operating procedures. We can install and run it directly after purchasing. However, Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper and AVCWare Blu-ray Ripper cannot do this. You have to buy third-party software (Any DVD) before installing and running your Blu-ray. We can see it in the screen shots below. By comparison, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper lacks some functions that BestHD [url=***********]Blu-ray Converter has, namely, it does not support Button visualization explanation,Automatic shut down.And in the four software, [url=***********]BestHD Blu-ray Ripper with powerful, small footprint, easy to operate, occupy large Blu-ray market.

[img]***********[/img] ( Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper)

[img]***********[/img]( AVCWare Blu-ray Ripper)

The price for Any DVD is from $100 to $150(it depends on the using time you choose). That is to say, except BestHD Blu-ray Ripper, Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper and AVCWare Blu-ray Ripper cannot rip Blu-ray dependently, that is the most fundamental reason why their operating cost is much higher than BestHD Blu-ray Ripper.

Moreover, take movie “Water Horse” for example; the reading speed of BestHD Blu-ray Ripper for this movie is less than one second. But Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper and AVCWare Blu-ray Ripper will take users more than 2 minutes to read, much slower than BestHD Blu-ray Ripper.

I tested these four soft wares for many times, so to sum up, I think BestHD Blu-ray Ripper has the highest cost performance. It will be the best choice for users. As for Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper, AVCWare Blu-ray Ripper and Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper, they are less satisfactory than BestHD Blu-ray Ripper.I really hope this passage could do you a favor on buying Blu-ray Ripper.All right, since this comparison is only done by myself, I’m sure there must be flaws and imperfections. Thus any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
