Leawo Blu-Ray Ripper is one of the best Blu-Ray PC software apps on the market, offering superior performances compared to other programs. The Blu-Ray technology becomes more and more popular today and most of the new computers feature a Blu-Ray drive, so such an application is required on all the computers.
- Blu-Rays are also more expensive than normal CDs or DVDs and losing one, or scratching it, might turn into a headache. Leawo Blu-Ray ripper can also work as a Blu-Ray copy software and will make sure you are able to store your data, movies or music safe on your computer.
- The program has a rich set of features, being a powerful tool used for Blu-Ray to DVD conversion and presented in a great manner. The program’s design is modern and sleek and features a superior user experience compared to other programs. You might also want to know about another great feature, the very powerful built-in decryption tool.
One Of The Better Rippers In It’s Class
The program outranks other applications thanks to the built-in decryption engine, which is capable of removing Blu-Ray copy protections from any original disc. The application can break through the latest AACS protections without a problem. It removes the protection right after the content from the disc is copied on your hard drive.
The program is very good at customizing the output to DVD discs or seperate files. You can crop the video frame to remove unwanted parts, such as ads, adjust output parameters such as bit rate and resolution and tune video effects including brightness, contrast and saturation. It is also possible to add watermarks to the output discs, but you will also find a range of effects in this applications’ library.
Constantly Being Updated
After you purchase the program, you will automatically be subscribed to updates. The program can be set to look for new patches and download them. This is recommended because the patches might help the decryption engine to break future copy protections that are not developed yet.
Leawo Blu-Ray Ripper has a splitter function which is good if you want to trim and merge multiple files into one. The available multi-language support is great and the real-time preview window works very well.
Lacks 1:1 Copying Ability
Unfortunately the program does not feature Blu-Ray to Blu-Ray copying capabilities. However, you can always copy the content from a BD onto your hard drive and then create an ISO image to burn on another blank BD. It might take a bit more time, but it’s possible. This is one of the few drawbacks of this application, because making a 1:1 perfect copy is something people look for nowadays. But unless you look to do this only, this program will work just fine. Leawo Blu-Ray Ripper can convert Blu-Ray data to lots of other audio and video formats, such as AVI, MP4, MOV and WMV.
The conversion speed is not fantastic, but it does not matter that much as long as the output quality is high. Different testers stated the conversion takes almost as much as the video length, which is way too much and not acceptable at all, but I think users can live with it knowing the quality of the output is going to be stunning.
Intiutive User Interface
The application is easy to use thanks to its clean and sleek user interface. It is easy to navigate in this program. You shouldn’t have troubles finding your way around regardless of how much computer knowledge you have.
The main interface shows how to convert Blu-Ray discs into DVD formatin only four basic steps, thanks to the built-in profile featuring fixed settings. The process might take a bit more if you want to adjust the options yourself, but that is the price you have to pay. The advanced features can be accessed through the editing suite placed in the top navigation toolbar.
Unfortunately the program lacks support. You can find some brief and not helpful FAQs on the website and can also find some tutorials about the developer’s products; but surprisingly enough, there are no tutorials for this application. New versions and product updates are announced on the company’s blog. The best way to get information about this program is to use the forum. You can also use the online contact form to submit a ticket.
Overall, the Leawo Blu-Ray Ripper is a fantastic multimedia suite with lots of advantages over the other Blu-Ray rippers on the market. Apart the conversion speed and the lack of support, the program reaches high-quality output compression and comes close to a perfect 1:1. There is still a lot of work to do, but this application is definitely one of the best I’ve ever reviewed.
