WinX DVD Ripper can only rip DVD for playing back on iPod, iPod Mini, iPod 4, Apple TV, iPhone 3G/3GS/4/4S, PSP and slightly outmoded Samsung and HTC phones/tablets, but it is really something for a completely free DVD ripper nevertheless.

Moreover, level-3 hardware acceleration further speeds up the DVD ripping process while greatly decreasing CPU usage and temperature.

Let's say, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is more professional, intelligent, supportive and easy-to-use in function, faster in speed and higher in DVD conversion quality, which proves it is the winner in everything over WinX DVD Ripper the free edition. But it does not mean that all users have to upgrade the free version to the platinum one, because not everyone desires to pay for a piece of DVD backup software and needs so many features. However, if you are a frequent DVD buyer who need to make DVD backups or a movie fan in need of watching movies with excellent quality in more portable ways, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is certainly worth having.
