If you have an older PC, forget 2-pass conversion. Overall a good product.

Generally a great converter program, easy to use and very functional. Unless you're converting to DVD, then you seem to run into tons of audio sync issues.

Love the features and he GUI. As said, it's very easy to opt out of the bundled junkware. Having said that, it's inconsistent at converting files. For example, I have been compressing ~5gb MKV files down to ~2.5GB very successfully with no readily apparent loss in quality. Then, all the sudden one of my conversions will look terrible, and I have to do it over. That could very well be CUDA, which is fast but has well known problems. I wish Handbrake would copy this GUI, it's perfect. 1 star off for being inconsistent.

I gotta agree with plasticpig72 below... It's not that hard to uncheck the unwanted software this wants to try and install. What do you expect for free? It's just part of the hassle with freeware, and has been so for quite some time. Get used to it.
I went ahead and installed this on someone's PC I had recently worked on, since they already had .NET installed. Looking at this software again it really is good stuff for being free, and I do seem to remember it being relatively fast with the conversion process compared to, let's say, AVS Video Converter.
Don't like the fact that it doesn't have an option to NOT check for updates. So, I went ahead and told it to connect to a bogus proxy to remedy that situation. This was for that other person's PC, being that they were using Windows firewall, otherwise I could have just blocked access with a third-party firewall. I would not have liked this person bringing their PC back for me to fix again because they had updated this software and didn't uncheck the added junk it wanted to install with the update process.
