The Good: Comes with a friendly interface. Its intuitive controls enable even the casual users to make a DVD backup. It also supports multiple languages and produces flawless 1:1 disc copies.
The Bad: While compressing a DVD-9 to DVD-5 you may notice some colour bleeding distortion around the bright colored letters on a dark backdrop, particularly in the opening and closing credits. If you are viewing the DVD on a large screen HDTV, these distortions become more apparent. It takes approximately one hour to rip the entire movie from a DVD and at times, the sound of the movie may go out of the sync.
The Verdict: Although DVDFab is not the best DVD burning software, it is undeniably worth consideringation. Despite its shortcomings, DVDFab is ideal for basic users as it is affordable and enables them to create a DVD backup with little effort.
