MACX DVD RIPPER PRO
DVD ripper for Mac users to rip any format at fast speed (5 min only to rip a full DVD) and original quality. It supports all known DVDs (new DVD, 99-title DVD, damaged & unplayable DVD) and rip DVD’s / ISO images in all sorts of formats, including DVD to MP4, HEVC/H.265, H.264, MOV, FLV, MPEG4, AVI, QT, MP3, etc. With 350+ preset profiles, the DVD ripper makes it easy to convert DVDs for playback on iTunes, QuickTime, Apple iPhone iPad, Android, PS4, TV, etc.
You can also clone DVD to ISO image at 1:1 ratio and copy DVD title to MPEG2 and MKV with all videos, audios and subtitles.
The interface of MacX DVD Ripper Pro is easy and well layed out. But personally I feel it needs a more 2D look to match the Apple looks. Its just a personal vision, and has nothing to do with it being good or bad. One thing I would like to see different is that when ‘ripping’ is active, the ripping-overlay can not be moved to show the information beneath. You can’t check anymore wether you opted for the ‘ merge titles ‘ yes or no. Now you just have to wait for the end result instead of aborting the ripping and correct your choice made. Thats the only real thing I can think of design wise. It all covers every aspect of DVD Ripping and offers I think all possible options one might need. So happy with the interface layout, we checked the options in the menu.
Options only specify output Folders and language, so pretty basic one time settings.

The interface is easy to work with and shows all available configurations. The choices made for ripping may vary from person to person. Its a true ‘ all benefit ‘ application. It handles all DVD’s ( also the latest types ), and rips any encryption or protected DVD.

In order to test we use an original DVD:
The Trade video length 1:54:25 , full DVD , High Quality H264, Merging titles, slightly better sound output and use the High Quality Engine. So we set it up to some better quality instead of the basic settings.

The ripping of the movie EDISON is even more surprising ! Check out the ripping time differences.
An astonishing difference in ripping performance ! It beats competition by approx. 29% and 50 % and >100% more speed! Checking other reviews, they all show the same results as we’ve just produced.
So we can be confident this will reproduce in other tests. Now ripping time is one mayor aspect but the other is as important, which is the output quality produced. Besides great speed the output quality is exelent.
Okay, your ripping is done now its time for exporting. MacX DVD Ripper Pro supports upload to websites such as YouTube, Google, Metacafe, Facebook, etc.
Digiarty Inc. website claims a 5 min DVD Rip. Well though this application is fast and works great, the 5 minutes ripping is a bit of marketing talk. Contacting Digiarty Inc. about the findings and results, lead to the following explanation:
The 5 min for a full DVD rip, is performed with Sandbridge Intel CPU and bla bla… in the end I am unable to reproduce this ripping time or come even close !!
Great thats solved for me, but I don’t want buyers to think they can actually rip a full DVD in 5 minutes. There’s also one other aspect I noticed. The subtitles look somewhat better with for example MDRP.app ( Mac DVDRipper Pro) which produces better looking subtitels. Option wise, MacX has best solutions for any DVD.
TRIM , CROP , MERGE & ADD
A nice feature is the Trim & Crop option which is easily performed and has a well designed interface.
MacX DVD Ripper Pro is one of the best DVD Rippers available now. It has all the options one needs for a clean and fast dvd-rip. In fact MacX DVD Ripper seems to be really fast, it beats competitors with 29% – 100% faster ripping. Great speed, and great output quality makes this application the one to buy. Its a fair price for an application thats this good. It rips any encryption or protected disc and also does 1:1 copies. The acclaimed 5 minutes DVD rip is marketing and not realistic. The Trim and Crop options work really well, as some competition lacks the ease of operation. MacX takes every DVD as others fail to load the main movie. Nothing is perfect in life, but MacX is best of its class if you want to have extensive control.
MacX DVD Ripper Pro is iPhoneX and 8 ready, so get your wallet out if you’re looking for a great DVD ripper.
