Wanna pick up a Blu-ray Ripper and not knowing which one to choose? We collect the best Blu-ray rippers on market and compare them side-by-side with reviews as well for your reference:
No. 1 Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper – Excellent
The good: Not any other Blu-ray Ripper can do with all kinds of BD/DVD sources: protected and unprotected Blu-ray Disc, BDMV folder, BD ISO, physical DVD, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file. Using the “Full Disc Copy” feature, you can preserve the Blu-ray’s original file structure. Insert the Blu-ray disc, click on the “Full Disc Copy” button, and select a folder to copy to. While Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper also supports conversion to popular device formats, it takes longer. When converting Blu-ray to 1080p HD video, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper gives pretty much indistinguishable image quality from the original Blu-ray Disc with Dolby Digital 5.1/AAC 5.1 audio as a plus. If you enjoy having everything organized and save memory space while keeping the original quality of your HD movies and videos then THIS IS WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR.
The bad: It lets you trim a specific duration from a movie, but not allows you to split movie/divide a movie evenly into multiple segments. It rips 3D Blu-ray Disc to 2D only.
The bottom line: With decent decrypting capability, high quality video output and considerate backup solution and specific format templates for versatile PMP devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox, PS3, Android tablets and phones, etc), Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper ranks top on the Blu-ray ripping application list.
Editors’ note: Pavtube provides excellent customer support service, including lifetime free upgrade of product and technical support. Users can contact the support staff via email for help and suggestion.
- Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Windows (Requires Windows XP, Vista or Win7)
- Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac (Requires Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8))
No. 2 DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper – Good
The good: When it comes to decrypting/hacking Blu-ray discs and DVDs, DVDfab is about as good as it gets. DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper well deserves its high reputation in decryption, and it handles not only AACS, BD+, Region code restriction, but also Cinavia protected Blu-rays. By taking advantage of CUDA accelerating, the conversion time is greatly shorted. If you want to rip a Blu-ray to MKV and keep 2 audio language and external subtitles, DVDfab would be your choice.
The bad: It is lacking of DVD ripping feature. It does not support AMD APP encoding. The interface is not very intuitive. And DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper costs more than its alternatives.
The bottom line: DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper decrypts and rips Blu-ray title to various video files playable on next generation consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360, HD player like WD TV Live, or mobile devices like iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc.
Editors’ note: DVDfab has a comprehensive forum where you can communicate with other users and get helpful advices. There’s not support email but you can submit your problem to DVDfab.
- DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper for Windows (Requires Windows XP, Vista or Win7)
- DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper for Mac (Requires Mac OS X v10.6/10.7,1 GHz or above Intel® processor)
No. 3 Leawo Blu-ray Ripper – Good
The good: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper comes with the popular feature to convert 2D to 3D for users to enjoy the popular 3D effect and exports various HD and popular common video formats (M2TS, AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG, MOV, MKV, RMVB, etc). Leawo Blu-ray Ripper has stunning trim and crop feature- it trims movie more accurate and crops video more considerate than its competitors. It can load multiple Blu-ray and DVD movies at a time. If you have tons of movies waiting to rip and feel like having a Blu-ray Ripper queue them several movies for running overnight, Leawo is recommended.
The bad: Not recognizing Blu-ray ISO or forced subtitle (if there is). GPU encoding is restricted to Nvidia’s CUDA only. There’s no backup option for keeping original movie quality.
The bottom line: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is a nice tool for DVD and Blu-ray ripping. There may be some improvements for Leawo to make but it already performs well enough for average users to convert/put Blu-ray and DVD movies to iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Wii, etc.
Editors’ note: We noticed that audio quality is noticeably degraded when ripping Blu-ray with Leawo Blu-ray Ripper.
- Leawo Blu-ray Ripper for Windows (Requires Microsoft® Windows NT4/2000/XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7)
- Leawo Blu-ray Ripper for Mac (Requires Mac OS X v10.5/10.6/10.7, 1 GHz or above Intel Processor)
No. 4 Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper – Fair
The good: By taking advantage of AMD APP, Intel® Quick Sync Video and NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology, Aimersoft Blu-ray ripper converts movies faster and saves your time. It rips Blu-ray/DVD into almost all popular video formats (MP4, AVI, MOV, etc) and features versatile format templates for smartphones, game consoles and MP3 players. Its “Backup” function let users envelop a whole Blu-ray movie into a MKV/DVD into VOB without quality loss. If you’re looking for a way putting movies onto a HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, or Motorola smartphone, the Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is worth checking out.
The bad: It does not support Blu-ray ISO or BDMV structure. There’s no option for preserving only forced subtitles. Most Blu-ray Discs are not loading to the software.
The bottom line: Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper handles DVD ripping as good as any other rippers, but the company really needs to work hard and step forward in Blu-ray Disc cracking. Other than that, Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is impressively fast and helpful.
Editors’ note: It seems that Aimersoft does not handle Blu-ray AACS and BD+ encryption properly and the software keeps popping up a message that we should contact customer support during our testing- the customer support staff offers but apologize though.
- Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper for Windows (Requires Windows XP 32bit/Vista 32bit&64bit /Win7 32bit&64bit)
No. 5 Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper – Poor
The good: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper can convert both standard Blu-ray videos and 3D Blu-ray videos to SD and HD video formats such as MKV, AVI, WMV, TS, etc. And it can preserve 3D effects when your source is 3D Blu-ray movie. NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP graphic acceleration technology has been introduced to bring faster conversion experience.
The bad: The app does not decrypt Blu-ray protections and requires AnyDVD HD to be installed in advance for Blu-ray ripping. DVD ripping is not supported.
The bottom line: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper does not rip movies from Blu-ray Disc, but if you have had the Blu-ray cracked and saved onto computer hard drive, this tool would be helpful and useful for you to enjoy movies on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox, Zune, NDS, Wii, and 3D smartphones.
Editors’ note: This tool is not recommended unless when you want to convert 3D Blu-ray and keep 3D effect.
