After a series of tests on multiple Blu-ray and DVD discs and folders, the following features within Leawo Blu-ray Ripper impressed us a lot:

  • Excellent Blu-ray decryption performance: “Leawo Blu-ray Ripper easily outranked its competitors in terms of functionalities and modifiable features. Perhaps most important to note is the program’s powerful, built-in decryption, which removes common Blu-ray copy protections and region codes that can block copying of the disc, including the latest AACS protections (AACS is the standard that has officially been adopted as the access restriction scheme for Blu-ray discs),” editors of TopTenReview said. Leawo’s Blu-ray Ripper could decrypt and rip Blu-ray discs with AACS, BD+ and the latest MKB protection, and rip CSS-DVD discs easily.

The converting speed and media preview might be not as impressive as the aforementioned shinning spots. To rip and convert a Blu-ray disc, it may take some time considering how large these files are.
