As an experiment, I started looking for easy ways to get a purchased DVD movie onto an iPod (and by extension, the iPhone). There are dozens of programs out there, but many are too hard to use or will leave the average consumer scratching his head... I found AoAMedia.com's aptly named DVD Ripper.

CNET Editorial Reviews - AoA is A-OK
AoA DVD Ripper sports an interface simple enough to use without consulting the Help file and powerful enough to batch rip DVDs and convert them for portable devices all in one fell swoop. It can also rip specific and user-defined scenes from movies, making it eminently useful in grabbing a particular scene for further study or enjoyment.
The spreadsheet layout is complemented not by tabs, as is the current style, but by helpful numbered buttons and steps. Export formats include the basics like AVI, WMV, and MPEG, as well as FLV, MP4, VCD, and SVCD. You can also use it to extract audio tracks, great for grabbing those memorable quotes. The audio codec used is user-determined, as is the video codec, giving the solid program a bit of a boost in the customization department. You can also set the aspect ratio and tweak other settings if need be.
Users have noted that their customer service has been quick and responsive in the past, and that the registration code works for at least several upgrades--if not longer. All of this makes AoA a highly recommended DVD ripper. Hopefully future editions will support the nascent Blu-ray and AoA will make it to the next generation of movie lovers.

1.File Compression/Size. Your software by far had the best compression.
2.Quality. I can see no difference in the quality between the original DVD and the one that your software made.
3.UI. By far the easiest layout and the easiest to figure out how to use.
Powerful tool for DVD ripping, converting and backup. I got this nice app to backup my family DVDs because we don't have a DVD burner. There are many softwares on the market but this was the only one I handled. The others were very complicated in terms of configurating the system.
