User review on HD Video Converter for Mac

“I recently purchased your HD Video Converter for Mac. I’m very pleased with the high quality results, the conversion speed and the easy to use (with advanced settings) interface.” – Steven

“I had a couple of camera video files that I could not convert no matter what I did to it, so I thought this will try your video converter out. Away we went and very quickly I must say, and the result, well it was very high quality and no synch problems. I really was impressed and I wish I could afford other software in your range because if they worked as well as the Video Converter I would not need half the rubbish I have purchased in the past.” – Roland
