Our Review of 3HeroSoft DVD Ripper Platinum Suite
“Complete” is a good way to describe the 3Herosoft DVD Ripper Platinum Suite. It has more format settings for file conversions and DVD rips than you may ever need, with sizes from 320×240 all the way up to 1280×720.
The conversion quality and speed are impressive – they easily match the best conversion programs listed on Easy Mobile Video.
The package is two individual programs: a DVD Ripper and a Video Converter. With two programs come two separate shortcuts for your desktop, so if you like keeping things separated, you’ll like this set-up.
The robust interface is self-explanatory and dead-easy to navigate. The conversion quality and speed are impressive – they easily match the best conversion programs listed on this site.
The glaring shortcoming is in adjusting the video conversion with brightness, contrast and saturation or even enhancing the volume – no such controls – even the Trim function is weak. For most of us, we won’t miss those settings because the software does a good conversion job without them. But for those who absolutely need to tweak their videos, the options are limited. That aside, the 3HeroSoft DVD Ripper Platinum Suite is a solid, comprehensive solution for all your DVD and video conversions. Good news for the Apple set – there’s a Mac version.
