comparison between top dvd to ipod converters

Years ago,when mp3’s emergence,people realized that with such smart palyer the awkward CD can be throw away.However,as the mp4 and ipod's coming out,mp3 was gradually discarded.Another problem accompanied is How to convert audio/video files to the right formats for one's mp3,mp4 or ipod.There are so many kinds of softwares designed for converting,and I spent several days to collect information , pick out some top DVD to ipod converters and make a comparison between them.
The converters are :
Cucusoft DVD to iPod Converter
Xilisoft DVD to iPod Converter
PQ DVD to iPod Video Converter
Super DVD to iPod Converter
Movkit DVD to iPod Ripper

1 Performance ( conversion speed and stability)
While using software, users always expect fast speed and efficient performance. It costs much time to convert DVD files, about 30 minutes to convert a one-hour DVD to MP4, indeed a headache. And if you have many DVDs to be converted, what should you do? Find a highly efficient tool or otherwise you will waste quite long time in conversion and your PC will also be bound with enormous amount of processes.

I spent a relatively long time to test in this aspect, since an general DVD file lasts 1 and a half hour and the average conversion time is about 1 hour .After all these trials , I came to find some problems. Firstly, if the whole DVD is to be converted, the speed competition of all soft end in a tie, needing the same time with the original file’s playing time. But here to point out that thanks to some special settings of Xilisoft and Movkit, the two soft affords automatic check of CPU type, and accordingly choose customized processing algorithm so as to increase the conversion speed. If you recorded a concert and want to convert only several songs rather than the whole disk, Xilisoft is recommendable for its saving of more than half of the average time, quite amazing speed!

2 Output quality
Video quality: Most of iPod MP4 users make it a movie house on the go, thus putting much attention on the quality of video. Cutting edge DVD converters will bring along no loss in video or image quality, enabling joy of watching movies with high definition. If otherwise, it will not only hurt your eyes, but make you headache with flopping images.

Audio quality: iPod plays a leading role in the output system of high quality. If after conversion, you get damned bad audio effect out of a piece of great music, it must be unbearable. So never think of a converter that will afflict your ear and brain.

All the mentioned software, except Super, support customized settings for video resolution, video/audio bit rate, audio sampling rate, etc. PQDVD stands out in this aspect. We can observe from the interface an adjusting click for different output quality, with demonstration of the size of output file, enabling users to make a balance between the file size and the expected quality.
