    I am a long time user of AnyDVD but I just recently realized that CloneBD performs much of the same functionality that Handbrake does, well at least as I would use them. I typically use a combo of AnyDVD and Handbrake to create mp4 or mkv files of movies.

    My question is, is CloneBD superior to handbrake? I downloaded the trial and tested it out and I noticed 2 things off the bat.
    1) it ripped the movie in about 20mins instead of over an hour
    2) the mkv file it created was enormous compared to Handbake even though I tired similar 1080p settings
    (for example the last movie I did was animated and Handbrake's file was 4GB and CloneBD was 22GB.

    Just looking for some advice and information. Thank you

    If it's superior only you can tell. But CloneBD can do hardware accellerated decoding AND encoding. Because of that it can indeed do a rip in that time frame. In fact i can do a full disc BD50 to BD25 in under 15 minutes with my 1080. As to the filesize, before you hit "convert" on that screen there's a slider. That'll let you estimate the file size, which you can modify through removing audio streams, changing audio codec, changing channel layout & Kbps,...

    Thank you very much, it was mostly the speed difference that threw me. That being the case I will probably purchase it. Thanks again!
