Best Blu-ray ripper review

Trough surfing the Internet for some time, I've collected dozens of Blu-ray rippers developed for Windows and Mac user. With the special intention of figuring out which one is the best of all, I've tested nearly each of them, and finally pushed out this review to show my own opinion about the top 3 Blu-ray rippers summarized by myself. Hope it will be of some help for you, and any comment and criticism are appreciated. Now, let's have a look at the 3 BD rippers one by one together.

No.1 Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper



Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is the best one among all the splitters I have tested. It is an independent DVD and Blu-Ray ripper with Windows 7 support, which is capable of decrypting unprotected and protected standard DVDs and Blu-ray disks without the support of third party software.

With full Blu-ray disc support, it is capable of removing copyright protections of almost all BD discs, no matter BD+, or AACS, even MKB Version > 12 is supported as well. With advanced audio technology, it is capable of reading all audio tracks of a BD disc, including Dolby TureHD Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio, which will never let you miss out *********** tongue in the movie.

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper can rip and convert your Blu-ray movies and general DVDs into other popular HD or SD media formats, like AVI, ASF, MPEG, MP4, WMV, MKV, MOV, FLV, SWF, RM, 3GP, AAC, AC3, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4A, etc., so that you can playback them on your beloved media devices such as iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Zune, Blackberry, PSP, PS3, Creative Zen, Nexus One, PS3, WD TV, Xbox, etc., or import them to Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere to make your own movies, or do something else as you like. Moreover, it has a unique option called “Copy”, through which you can directly backup your DVD .vob files and Blu-ray .m2ts files to the hard drive of your PC or an external hard drive, and still keep the format of .vob and .m2ts without any quality loss.

Additionally, this Blu-ray ripper allows user adjusting video and audio parameters like bit rate, frame rate , sample rate, aspect ratio, audio channels, etc., that means you are able to compress the file size of your Blu-ray discs according to your own requirements.

Best of all, it is with the enhanced support for Blu-ray subtitle and audio track conversion. Once you selected on the certain Blu-ray file, it will be able to read out all the subtitle info and audio info included in the BD file, and list them out in a detailed way as below. In that way, you can select your needed subtitle and audio track to do conversion at will.



It is really affordable, only $49 US dollars, the cheapest one of all the BD rippers I've ever seen.

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper also comes with a Mac version - Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac, whose functionalities are the same with the above mentioned Windows version, and both are in the same retail price US $49, and the only deference lies in that one is for Windows user, and the other is for Mac user (Snow Leopard is supported as well). Besides it, I have not found another Mac program which is better than this one. Maybe it is time for software manufacturers to develop more Blu-ray applications for Mac users.



No.2: AnyDVD HD



AnyDVD HD comes with the same functionality as AnyDVD, but with additional features for full Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD support, including decryption of Blu-ray (BD+ and AACS) and HD DVD (AACS) movies.

By comparison, it lacks some functions that Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper has, namely, it does not support adjusting customized settings like bit rate, resolution, etc, also changing subtitle and audio track are both unavailable. Additionally, when it comes to multiple output formats and file size compression, it nearly can do nothing about them. So to some extent, it is not as powerful as Pavtube, and that is why I put it in the second place.

Of course, the good thing is that AnyDVD HD is expert in removing all sorts of BD protections, which is the most important feature that some other BD rippers lacked.

It costs 63 euros, equals to $92 US dollars, much expensive than Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

The pity is that AnyDVD HD does not have a Mac version, so Mac users can not find an identical solution from it like that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

No.3: Top Blu-ray Ripper



It is capable of decrypting blu-ray disc s and general DVDs to all the popular video and audio formats, like FLV, SWF, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP2, MKV, AVI, MPEG, MPEG4, WMV, RM, etc. Moreover, it supports previewing the movie before ripping, clipping the movie freely, snapshot the images in the preview, automatically shutting down the computer, etc., and supports batch ripping. All these functions are all had by Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

It seems that Top Blu-ray Ripper has nearly the similar functions as Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper. But why do I put it in the third place? That is totally because of its inferior decrypting ability. Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper and AnyDVD HD can absolutely decrypt all the Blu-ray files you throw at it, while Top Blu-ray Ripper sometimes can only work on some of them selectively. In another word, Top Blu-ray Ripper can not decrypt all Blu-ray protections, especially BD+, and MKBV > 10.

What’s more, it only supports customizing video size, and audio channels, but not supporting adjusting bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and other audio and video parameters to allow user optimizing their conversion, and also, changing/selecting subtitle and audio track language are unavailable as well.

The price of Top Blu-ray Ripper is $79.99 US dollars, much higher than that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper, but cheaper than that of AnyDVD HD.

Comparison among Top 3 Blu-ray rippers software. Blu-ray as a new disc format has greater storage capacity, faster reading and 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 analyze 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. 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 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 Blu-ray Converter has, namely, it does not support Button visualization explanation,Automatic shut down.And in the four software, BestHD Blu-ray DVD Ripper with powerful, small footprint, easy to operate, occupy large Blu-ray market. ( Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper) ( 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.
