Aiseesoft Blu-ray to iPad 2 Ripper for Mac is a Blu-ray conversion tool. If you are a fan of Blu-ray movies but you also want to enjoy them on your iPad 2 or on other multimedia playback devices, this application can help. It can convert both Blu-rays and DVDs into H.264, MPEG-4, M4V, MOV, WebM and WMV files. Like many other Aiseesoft rippers, this one also comes with conversion profiles for devices other than the iPad 2, like the iPhone, iPod and AppleTV. The New iPad has a profile for it.
In terms of design, this Blu-ray ripper has a pretty good graphical user interface. At the top, there is a toolbar that you can use to load DVD or Blu-ray movies, and to access the video editor. On the right, you will find a video player that you can use to play DVD and BD titles before you convert them. Right down at the bottom there is a drop-down menu that contains all the conversion profiles, sorted into groups. If you want to rip your movie but don't want to rip it for any specific device, you can simply select the "General Video" category and pick a format. Then you can change the conversion settings manually.
In short, this is a nice ripper that works well, looks good and has good format support. If you want to watch your Blu-ray movies on devices other than your Mac, this is a good way to go.
