Ease of Use: 
The lowest price: 25.46$
You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Very easy to use. Can handle many file types. Relatively inexpensive.
Default converting speed is slow and speeding it up means a loss of quality. The visual style won't wow you.

We live in a mobile society. Even ten years ago, cell phones were twice as large and far less functional than they currently are. Gone are the days of portable cassette players and even portable compact disc players. We now live in the age of the mp3 player, smartphone, and electronic passcodes, where smaller and easy to use products are becoming the norm. We now take everything we own on the go, including movies, music, photos, work, and nearly anything else. Mp3 players are incredibly popular, and Apple's iPod is poised at the front of the pack. However, there are certain things that you may want to take with you on your iPod that are quite difficult to get to function the way that you want. For example, putting videos on your iPod can be time consuming and frustrating. All the videos must be in a certain format type (mp4) or they will not play. Rather than convert all the videos by hand, Cucusoft has created a program to take all of the guesswork out of the process. You can now convert DVDs, Youtube videos, and even directly captured footage from a camcorder directly through the program into an easy to manage file type that the iPod will finally accept. Now, you can finally take all those movies and videos with you wherever you go, with little to no hassle. Using the program is easy. You simply browse for the video that you want to convert, select the output type (typically mp4), select the location for the converted file to be saved to, and the program does the rest. I have used many video converting software programs, and I can honestly say that this is the best and easiest to use of the ones that I have tried (Handbrake, ConvertX,etc.) The $30 that it will likely cost you is a small price to pay for the freedom to take all those movies and memories around with you on the bus, plane, subway, or even work. The only complaints I have with the product are that the speed with which it converts can take a while (there are different settings, but more speed equals lower quality), and that the interface could look better (obviously a minor complaint). All in all this is a great program that you won't be disappointed in buying. There is even a free trial!


Great product through and through. If you have video converting needs, this is the ticket.
