Fast, easy to use converter 5 stars by lental731 Dec 10, 2014
I'm surprised the editors have only rated Handbrake four stars. I've used other conversion programs in the past and all have worked reasonably well but Handbrake is by far the fastest and simplest to use. I use it to convert Quicktime MOV files to AVI files for use in Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7. It's worked flawlessly for me. show Review details

Good conversions and user friendly 5 stars by realbull2009250 Mar 15, 2013 (Read all my 60 reviews)
I've been using this for several years and it has always been reliable. The conversions are always good quality with very little quality loss and fairly fast. The interface is easy to understand. The default options should be good enough for most casual users, so there is not much tweaking needed, just add the video and convert. But it may have enough options for more advanced users. The downside is that on weaker systems, it can chew up a lot of CPU power and slow your system down. show Review details
