If you call 2 months free usage a deal, then I guess it's a "deal."

Works just like AnyDVD.  They say it's free as long as it's in beta.  I don't know what they plan on charging when it's out of beta, but the About box says it's good to May 7 and I installed it today.

I tried it on one BluRay.  About 19 GB of stuff on the disk. I just did an explorer drag & drop copy.  It copied the entire contents to my HD in about 28 minutes.

Seems comparable or maybe a bit faster than MakeMKV.  MakeMKV when it goes out of beta is going to be $50 one shot "lifetime" license.  It may be a better deal in the long run.  Every other BluRay solution I've seen they want another $$ fix every so often.

AnyDVD HD has a lifetime license option, but it's not cheap (about $120 right now after one of Slysoft's frequent 20% discount promos that's running right now).

That's a far cry from $50 though.  I took the plunge with MakeMKV.  The author seems determined to update and it has a user forum.  Although it is still good to try these other options, esp. during the freebie period.  Sometimes if one tool doesn't work the other will.

I tried AnyDVD and it seems to work well.  The pricing just puts me off.  Seems like competition is opening up.
