Pavtube BDMagic Review

    I am very happy with Pavtube software and support

    I am very happy with Pavtube software and support. I have had no problems since the first one that I reported that you quickly fixed. Your Blu-Ray Ripper worked so well that I purchased your Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate to convert and crop my other video files. I recommend Pavtube to all of my friends and my two sons as well - they both asked me to give them a copy, and I told them that the price is fair, and if they want a copy, buy it themselves. My older son gave me a freeware copy of a Blu-Ray ripper, and told me to check it out. The "Freeware" was worth exactly what it costs - NOTHING! It was so slow (less than half the speed of Pavtube), and crashed my computer halfway through the conversion. Before I bought Pavtube, I purchased a number of different conversion software packages. All had one problem or another - usually not converting a particular format, so I had to use more than one conversion package to cover all the conversions I needed. One package in particular that I liked, AVS4YOU (advertised with FREE LIFETIME UPGRADES!) that corrected its conversion problems with an upgrade, I found that I could not transfer the software to my very, very fast new computer that I bought specifically for video processing. They demanded that I buy another copy - my existing copy would not install on a new computer. That is why I bought Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate - I bought a fast new computer primarily for video editing and conversions and found that I was locked out of all of my "Lifetime" AVS software unless I paid again. I am very satisfied with your software and technical support, and I highly recommend it. Also, the price is fair. Please feel free to use any of my comments if you like.

    The best in class in the world

    The Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is really excellent, the best in class in the world ! I'm really happy with my purchase ! I was just wondering if there was any plan to add a support to the latest CUDA Nvidia GPU chipset (CUDA) to speedup the encoding process.

    Very pleased so far

    I am pleased to say I have been using the software continuously since I purchased it, to back up my Blu-ray and DVD’s. So far I’ve only had one failed conversion. Very pleased so far with the results.

    The best BD ripper

    For DVDs, I had been using Slysoft's AnyDVD and Clone DVD2 software. Though I have been quite satisfied with their software, they are way behind the times in regard to Blu-Ray support.

    Worked like a charm

    I have only backed up one movie so far and that worked like a charm! I am using a WD TV streamer to play the converted file. I like the interface of the program. It is easy to use and I do not have any big problem finding my way. I like your software so far and I will continue to use it. I read about your software on a Norwegian It page on the Internet. It was recommended for speed purposes.

    Pretty easy to use

    I have used the software several times. So far it is working quite well. I am using a laptop with Windows XP to do the conversion. I then transfer it to an external hard drive. When I am ready to put a movie on my iPad I drag and drop the file into iTunes. The software is pretty easy to use. I have used others in a trial setting, but this was by far the best I found.

    I am very impressed with your software

    I’ve been using it already, it’s been working great, lot’s of converting options J+++, as for the interface the only thing missing (although it doesn’t bother me at all) is a easy “main movie only” option... I’m using my Xbox interface plus media center and also my ASUS O!Play to stream movies on my tv... As far as quality/price ratio goes I am very impressed with your software and it’s definitely better than DVD shrink... and as for DVDFab it’s a bit more user friendly and has a few more options but it requires a membership every year that is VERY annoying...

    Everything's better with Cuda

    I ended up getting Pavtube Blu-ray ripper over Odin because Odin did stumble on one disc I tried (that Pavtube worked just fine with), Pavtube specifically said it supported Cuda (Everything's better with Cuda *smile*) and was a little faster than Odin, and then having Pavtube be on sale sealed the deal.

    Excellent product that does exactly what it's meant to

    In summary, excellent product that does exactly what it's meant to. Will save me a fortune with not having to duplicate my purchases via iTunes. Interface is very easy to use. Tried a couple of apps but couldn't find a single app to do the full Blue Ray to iPad conversion in one go. Read a few reviews from the results which all pointed towards Pavtube.

    Converting Bluray to HD

    I liked being able to try the software before I bought it, as I was unsure which package would work best for what I want to do. Pavtube seems to offer many possibilities on top of my principle reason for buying it. With PavTube, I have the opportunity of converting Bluray to HD.


    It works great and I am very happy

    I have used it a couple of times to convert a Blu-ray to a format that will play on my iPad. It works great and I am very happy. I did use the trial program first to check which works great too. I will mainly use the program to put movies on my iPad through itunes. The user interface is east to understand and I have tried one other program but didn't like it as much as this one. Thanks to your company for developing this product.

    Pavtube has more options

    I think the UI is fairly easy to use. I’m not doing anything fancy or complicated, so for my purposes it’s been easy to use after a quick read of the tutorial. I have used other conversion programs before and like the fact that Pavtube has more options. Previous programs I’ve used are limited in the screen resolution you could rip to, or they couldn’t do BluRay movies.

    It worked as I expected

    I have used the software for ripping files from DVD & BD to my PC. So far it works fine. I also converted a BD movie to a iPad file to test and it worked as I expected. I use a 1TB hard drive to store the files and I use Cyberlink PowerDVD to play the DVD & BD discs. Your product appears to have multiple formats to rip the DVD/BD files to. (I only use the ones for iPad & iPod.)The interface is clean and easy to use.

  • Joe Joe

    Very Good

    It (a converted BD file to MKV) is playing very well on the PC. The interface was intuitive and the conversion process worked well and you are very good in your initial design, update support and customer service.

    Much faster than non-CUDA solutions

    I really appreciate the use of CUDA in your products. So far I have used the blu-ray ripper to backup one blu-ray disc. It worked very well and produced a descent 1080p mkv file in about 1.5 hrs. The movie was 2 hours long so it is much faster than non-CUDA solutions. I am very pleased with the blu-ray ripper and will continue to use it.

  • Jeremy Jeremy

    the BEST product

    Pavtube is the BEST product I’ve used to rip my movie collection. Thank you for the great products!!

  • Mark Mark

    Much fater than other software

    Good, clear interface and easy to use. The key for me was speed. PAVTUBE was much fater than other software tried at converting.

  • Dean Dean

    I like Pavtube much better

    I also a product from Slysoft (which costs a lot more), but I like Pavtube much better. It's easy to use.

  • Dylan Dylan

    Do what I want

    Started using the software already and it is by far the only software that can do what I want first time around without having to keep going back transcoding over and over again to get what I want.!

    The program is wonderful

    I would just like to say the program is wonderful and I wish I had discovered it before. It has enabled me to carry all my media with me and I appreciate that. I purchased the BDMagic program because I travel a lot and I was looking for a way to take the movies I purchased with me. I always buy the latest movie release on Blu-Ray but they do not always come with a digital copy. I found your program and decided to give it a try. It does meet my needs and I am enjoying all the movies in my library. Pavtube is the only program that I have used that allows me to rip my Blu-Ray and my DVDs, it's awesome.For now I would not add a thing to the current program, it does everything I need it to do. It's simply awesome!

    By FAR this is the easiest and most flexible program I have ever used

    I wanted Blu Ray Ripped to convert Blu Ray discs to MP4 files for my media server. By FAR this is the easiest and most flexible program I have ever used. Want output for an Acer tablet (you can even pick the model), Ipod - check, Android - too many to list, Ipad / IPhone - every version. The most amazing feature is the custom video - after tweaking the settings you can produce a 1920 x 1080p file that is indistinguishable from the original Blu Ray Disc (both the video and audio). All this and it is the simplest of software to use and install. 5 stars is an understatement, I'd give it 10. I currently recommend this product to all the people I know who want their video in multiple formats. PAVTUBE - KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK !!!

    5 stars rating

    I purchased Pavtube BDMagic because it can rip any blu-ray disc to many video formats. This software is very affordable, and worth each dollar. I use this software to rip my blu-ray collection to mkv so that I can watch the movies many times without having to insert a blu-ray disc in my computer each time. I have not had any problems with this software, it is very stable. I tried the trial version of DvdFab Blu-ray ripper, but I did not buy it as Pavtube BDMagic can do the same things and it more affordable. The only feature I would like pavtube to add, is an option to rip blu-ray discs to mkv with DTS audio. I love the option to crop the blu-ray videos, so you can remove the black borders that are on many blu-ray movies. I highly recommend Pavtube BDMagic, and want to give this software 5 stars rating. Pavtube are very good at what they do.
