The software has been designed to be very user friendly; easy to use in other words.

I have taken my time on checking out this software and I could surely say that this software works magnificently and would definitely buy it if only I had a collection of precious DVDs!
Here is my full honest review.
WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Navigation and Features
Everybody loves a software that, not only does what it promises, but also makes the whole process smoother and as simple as it could. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum absolutely does not disappoint at this. You only have to insert your DVD into your DVD drive and this prompt would come up
You simply have to click OK on this window and it would take you to the next step wherein the user will be asked to choose the format he/she would like the backup would be in.
This window will give the user all of the formats that are available. On the left, you could see Device Profile. If you’d like to have the output of the ripped DVD to be optimized for a particular device(eg. iPhone 6, iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, S7 Edge and many more) you only have to select the specific device on the listed device profiles.
This feature is really cool…
Ever experienced an output not fitting the whole screen when watching a movie on your phone? This actual step fixes that issue. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum has enlisted almost all of the popular devices and has taken note of these devices’ resolution. Which is why the output of the video ripped would be optimized for that device profile you have chosen.
If you are unsure of what format to choose, the software also would provide regular users of the recommended file format; this basically means that this file format works 99% of the time.
After selecting the format, you will be taken to the last step that you would have to go through before completing your DVD ripping.
On the left-hand side, the…
Video Editing Tools
WinX DVD Ripper does not only rip your DVD but it also has a few yet essential video editing tools.
On this tool, you will be cut unwanted borders of the video or even cut a selected segment of the movie; Pretty awesome especially when you want to cut some scenes not suitable for young audiences.
WinX DVD Ripper has a simple audio enhancement tool wherein you will be able to select from a drop down box your preferred audio enhancement. Most users are not really particular with this and just leave this one to its default selection. But if you are a picky user and knows what you need, you should be able to maximize this feature.
Normally, the subtitle file is separate from the actual movie file and not all mobile devices could read that subtitle file. With WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, users will be able to actually engrave the subtitle to be part of the movie. This means movie + subtitle in a single video file!
That’s not all…
Some users like to multitask and do a lot of things at the same time. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum could surely put your whole computer system into a strain and would affect your multitasking efficiency. The developers of WinX DVD Ripper have created a solution by allowing the users to limit the software’s CPU utilization. This could be found on the lower right-hand side of the final step before completing your DVD rip or backup.
When you start ripping, the software provides the users two options: the first one is to shut down the computer when conversion is completed and the other is open output folder when conversion completed.
The first option would give WinX DVD Ripper the permission to shut down the computer. A great option you could select whenever you are ripping a DVD right before sleeping. Just make sure no unsaved windows are opened, you may lose some files in the process or the computer might not fully shut down.
The second option would just basically open the actual folder containing the output.
Something I noticed though, the remaining time is not the actual remaining time. It could state that it would go on for more than 20 minutes but it finished ripping in about 5 or 6 minutes. It’s not really a bad thing, but I just think it would be really better if this remaining time would actually tell the users the actual time the whole ripping process would take.
My Experience when using WinX DVD Ripper Platinum
In my opinion WinX DVD Ripper is an excellent software which has great output, formats and device profiles. It supports a lot popular formats and mobile devices. On the other hand it supports multiple languages; users can change the software’s language depends on their needs. Worth mentioning, the video and audio qualities are really amazing, the conversion speed is pretty fast and the user interface is easy to use; even if you are not that good in computers; the software is designed to guide you through the next step.
Downside is that the software only supports DVDs; if you’d like to back up your VCDs instead, this software may not be for you. Also, the software only has a few editing tools such as crop, volume adjustment and hard-subbing a subtitle into the movie. These editing are indeed the essential ones but having more editing tools in the future versions of the software should be great.

Verdict and Conclusion
Definitely an amazing software for those people who loves to collect original DVDs and would like to preserve them by creating backups of it. If you are not that enthusiast in supporting the movie industry, you may find this software quite expensive.
Though it is really quite expensive.
I have found some few softwares that offer the same services as WinX DVD Ripper, however, not in the same quality and definitely not as smooth as how WinX DVD Ripper has been designed.
So, in the end, I’d still say, the software is definitely worth it for your original DVD collection.
I’d rate WinX DVD Ripper Platinum with a 5/5 in its features and a 4/5 for its price.
Overall, I’d be giving a 4.5/5 for this one.
