DVD neXt Copy is a simple DVD copy program designed with the new user in mind. When DVD neXt Copy is working properly, it produces excellent quality DVD copies; however, we found that DVD neXt copy is a little unstable for our liking, because during our tests, it produced at least one unsatisfactory copy.
We chose to evaluate the Xpress version of DVD neXt Copy because its price and features are similar to most of the other software we reviewed; however, DVD neXt COPY does offer a Standard and Pro version. The Pro version, in particular, includes the ability to convert DVD movies to iPod, Zune and PSP. However, it does not convert to more generic devices or file types. Click DVD neXt Copy Pro, for more information.
As a whole, DVD neXt copy includes all the features you’d expect from standard DVD copy software. DVD neXt Copy has the ability to remove region codes and restore defective or scratched DVDs automatically. DVD neXt Copy can also burn Dual Layer DVD-9s if your burner supports the media.
However, we would like to see DVD neXt Copy include the ability to copy episodic discs and choose specific episodes to keep. We would also like to see DVD neXt Copy include the ability to customize our copy with specific bonus features.
DVD neXt Copy does not include a CSS decryptor; you will have to download a third-party program to backup copyrighted DVDs.
DVD neXt copy is extremely easy to use. Everything is plainly labeled and easy to find. You simply choose to keep the entire disk or only copy the main movie, select your source and target and then start copying.
One difficulty we had while using DVD neXt Copy is that the software sometimes had a difficult time naming the source correctly. When we would change DVDs in the drive and select “refresh,” the DVD source name wouldn’t change. However, the DVD copies usually came out just fine.
We did not have any problems installing DVD neXt Copy.
We used DVD neXt Copy to burn several movies. Most of the time, the copies we made were excellent. There were no noticeable differences between DVD neXt Copy’s disks and the originals. However, our results with DVD neXt Copy were inconsistent; we did have at least one case where the copy did not have sound.
DVD neXt COPY is easy to use and produces excellent quality copies, but that is only when it is working at the top of its game. In our tests, DVD neXt Copy produced at least one coaster, great for protecting your furniture from cold drinks!
DVD neXt COPY Xpress is only one of the DVD Copy programs DVDneXtCOPY Inc. produces. They also offer a Standard version that includes the ability to build custom tracks, view each title and that even supports 15 languages. Their Pro version also has the power to copy your DVDs to iPod, PSP and Zune.
