Yes, it is expensive. I can't disagree. It is a huge price to pay just to get my Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs to play nicely without the HDCP complications.

However, it is updated seemingly every 2-3 days, continuously getting around newer methods that would make it inoperable. Unlike the free competitor (which didn't work at all for me), this product actually WORKS, works well, is updated, and the software vendor actually CARES about the clients in order to keep it working. That alone is a big deal in my book.

If you want to complain, complain about the HDMI/HDCP implementations which are so very limiting to people who pay good money for movies.

I'm using my copy of this to play back BR&HDDVD movies via Nero Showtime on my Dell 3008 monitor -- all while keeping my monitor resolution at 2560x1600. I've also used it to rip BRs & HDDVDs for discless playback. I'd note that on some discs, playback on difficult disc RIPS can sometimes work better if you navigate to the actual movie file instead of trying to play the 'disc' via the main menu. (this is not a fault of AnyDVDHD as the same issues crop up with the disc -- it's the fault of the varying disc protection schemes which make things difficult for a software player like Nero Showtime)

You know people are complaining about the price but they could have done what I did a couple of years ago. Bought the software for a lot less $ and I have been getting new updates for free since. Not many companies do that anymore. Most of the time when they change versions they get you for an upgrade. I think for even what they are charging now it is a great deal. I think that ANYDVD and CLONEDVD are some of the greatest softwares out there. Keep up the good work!!

You can thank George Bush and Hank Paulson for the steep US price. The US dollar is worth diddly shit. This is NOT Slysoft's fault. Conversion rates are what they are, period. Secondly, the price is for a LIFETIME license, a LIFETIME license complete with future upgrades! AND this software continues to work, year after year. Give me a break about the price guys.

AnyDVD HD

I suppose it's nice to be the author of a piece of software that has no competition. To set the price to $130 USD and not even offer a retail box, documentation, or even a CD is greedy beyond it's value. Do NOT pay that kind of money for this software.

I don't advocate piracy but prices like this make me wish I had.

As far as functionality goes, it works great and does what it says. My short-lived trial is now over and the software fails to work. It's been disabled and I will not pay $130 and I suggest you don't either. With a little patience, I'm sure a reasonably priced application with appear on the market. I'd have no problem paying $75 for this, but not $130. While I wait I'm going to go to every software review site that I can and let other's know NOT to buy this overpriced utility.

These comments are about AnyDVD HD.

This is one of the few tools currently available (as at June 2008) which claim HD (Blu-ray & HD-DVD) decryption capability; and is also one of the tools which actually does what it claims. Where DVDFabHD failed to even 'see' my HD drive (LG GGC-H20L), AnyDVD HD had no such problem and successfully decrypted Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs to my HDD.

HD decryption functionality is effectively limited to 'entire disc' decryption. Considering the cost of purchasing the HD version of AnyDVD, it's not unreasonable to expect a bit more flexibility such as a 'movie only' option.

Price cannot be described as being any less than exorbitant when HD decryption functionality is so limited. But as I was over a barrel, I had no choice but to purchase this tool (I purchase ALL the software that I use).

What with the awesome advance of the FREE DVDFabHDDecrypter, who cares about this product anymore?

And please stop sending me updates, Gustav!

This may be great software, but this looks more like a greedy software writer to me.

Any DVD itself costs 49 Euro, the equivalent of $77 for a program that comes without packaging, shipping, distribution, etc. That is outrageously expensive when retail software product in a store in commercial packaging generally costs only about $50.

Second, the default "purchase" page on the author's website lists a 155 Euro bundle ($245, thank you very much), obligating you to remove the programs you don't want.

Now, I have no problem compensating authors fairly for their hard work. But being a little too greedy about it, makes me hesitate even considering rewarding this author's approach.

I'd just as soon buy a second DVD player to handle the region issue!

Unfortunately for those of us in the USA, Slysoft has dumped the dollar as their currency of choice and switched to the Euro. So now every time the dollar loses ground against the Euro in financial markets (which seems to happen almost daily nowadays), the price of AnyDVD HD goes up again. I don't see any end to this situation until or unless the FUBAR'ed USA economy gets fixed.

This program does a great job but the price is entirely too high. You cannot purchase AnyDVD now you have to purchase the AnyDVD-HD version. Also, the price is NOT $50 like it says here but rather around $115, which, in my opinion, is absolutely ridiculous even with lifetime upgrades.

Nice tool and I never had a problem with it. You can use it to decrypt DVD content. Just start it and copy the content of the DVD to your hard drive. AnyDVD will decrypt it while the files are copied by Windows.

Very handy software, Works seamlessly. I use with an external DVD Drive in a fan cooled enclosure and can backup directly to Nero Digital in Nero Recode with no intermediate file on HDD. Have not encountered copy protection problems (yet) looking forward to trying it with different encoders. At $40.00 USD it isn't cheap but saves time which isn't cheap either!

Fantastic item! I've been using this for over a year, best $40 I've spent! Get this if you want to archive your collection. It works invisibly with whatever prog you use( ripper, viewer).
I've used it with dvdshrink, DVDCrypter,etc. The trial is good for a couple weeks, and, once you purchase, UPDATES FOR LIFE!
every time there is a new protection scheme developed, I receive an e-mail from them when a solution is created. in the words of the Governator:"Go! Go NAH-W!"

Actually...AnyDVD IS something to get excited about.
For rippping new titles (to HDD) you need something to remove the newest protections.

AnyDVD and DVDFab Decrypter are two of the most updated apps
that can do this.

Even tho DVDFab Decrypter may be my favorite of the two... (by the slimmest of margins)
I use AnyDVD all the time.

Nothing worth getting excited about. When you backup a DVD, it's best to rip it to your hard-drive first, not read it on-the-fly. Not recommended.

When it comes to decryption for backup up your DVDs -- it just doesn't get any better than this. Concerned that some new protection will hit the street? Give it a day or two and AnyDVD is updated. Thse guys must not sleep.

Great software in my opinion.

Not impressed. Unable to rip some DVDs I was able to rip using DVDFab Decrypter which is free.

Might be useful for someone wanting to disable the region of DVDs in real time without having to rip the DVD.

Haven't backed up many audio CDs lately... Could be useful for that IF it works well.

For backing up DVDs, DVDFab Decrypter is free and the way to go. Decrypt with DVDFab Decrypter, shrink with DVD Shrink, burn with Nero.
