Ripping video from DVD usually takes a long time. But here it can be done fast and quick saving a lot of time for the user.
I've been messing around for ages trying to grab clips from films with various degrees of success and anguish. If only I had known this product existed a few months ago, I'd have saved myself hours of frustration. This works straight out of the box. Just put your DVD in the drive, choose your format and away you go. And it works quickly, not like rippers that take as long as the film. What really impressed me though, was the ability to select and grab a clip from a film. So easy and tremendous quality. Thanks guys.
