If you are looking for making digital backups of your favorite Blu-ray movies, you can find few better tools like MakeMKV, a freeware video transcoder that is easy to use, and it is now upgraded to support for latest versions of AACS and BD+. If MKV is only choise, MakeMKV won’t let you down. If not, you will probably have to rip Blu-rays twice to get a needed format since MakeMKV only converts Blu-ray to MKV format.

DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper

DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper is a popular shareware to rip 2D and 3D Blu-rays to various videos in specific formats for playback on various devices. While this Blu-ray ripping tool has some disadvantage features:

a.Not support for some commerical Blu-rays: Though DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper supports removing Blu-ray region code A/B/C, Blu-ray encryption technology changes constantly, which is the main fact that causes Blu-ray ripping issues in many ripper tools, and DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper is no exception. Worse still, DVDFab removed decryption functionality from their software and lack of DVD ripping feature.

b.Complex operation: For some users, though there are instructions from DVDFab tech support, for the one who are not-so-tech savvy user, he or she will view all potential Blu-ray ripping issue as a hassle if the interface is not so flexible.

c. Low Mac incompatibility: After testing, we found DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper not working on the latest Mac OS X like macOS Sierra quite well.

d. Limited output formats/devices supported: As is known to all, DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper is able to rip Blu-ray to various formats like MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, MP3, AAC, etc. However, DVDFab will not allow users to search for a desired output format/device. This is also a big argument against using it.

e. Lack of Blu-ray Copy funtions: DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper supports ripping Blu-ray to various formats but unfortunately, 1:1 copying BLu-ray and making main titile Blu-ray functions not added to DVDFab Blu-ray Copy.

f. Slow Ripping speed: It is a little disappointing when it comes to the time it takes to rip a Blu-ray since it does not support AMD APP encoding. Many times the Blu-ray ripping conversion with DVDFab is lagging behind other Blu-ray rippers.

g. High price: It costs $60 per year which is too expensive than its alternatives.

Conlusion: DVDFab Blu-ray Riper is quite limited as well. But it is provide copy Blu-ray to any blank Blu-ray/DVD/AVCHD disc.
