You could see that actually these 3 Blu-ray ripper and converter tools are quite similar to each other. The feature that differs and matters most is the disc decrypting feature. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is able to decrypt any disc protection upon Blu-ray/DVD discs and remove disc region restrictions. AnyMP4 Blu-ray Ripper actually has no disc decrypting support, which is a very big disadvantage since nowadays most Blu-ray/DVD discs are copy protected. EaseFab Blu-ray Ripper performs weak in disc decrypting and region restriction breaking. Another big difference is output support. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper supports multi-track lossless MKV/MP4 file output and 4K video output, while the other 2 don’t. Therefore, just select the one that meets you most.
