User's Review:
To be honest, Pavtube BDMagic is a dream come true to me! This software is so simple to use and gives me exactly what i was looking for. I'm saving and digitalizing my entire collection and now been able to put them on iTunes and watch them wirelessly on my Apple TV 3 with extraordinary quality of Audio (DD 5.1) and Video. (1280x720). I tried several softwares and I can tell you that NO ONE comes even close to the simpleness and great quality that Pavtubes softwares deliver. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other.
