Just gave the MAC version a spin with the free trial. I am comparing this to the free software that I use called HandBrake.

xilisoft estimated that ripping the movie would take about 1 hour and 50 minutes.
HandBrake took about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

xilisoft only rips the first 3 minutes with the free trial. I would expect the ability to rip one full movie to fully test it before making a purchs.

Xilisoft does make ripping a DVD to the ipad very simple, you basically just tell it to rip the DVD movie file to the iPad and it does it.

While my HandBreak version of the ripped movie played back pretty much exactly like if I was watching and actual DVD, very smooth.
Xilisoft's 3 minute ripped version of the Movie seemed to be clear and running well at first but You could tell that it was somewhat stuttering or dropping frames, or something. It wasn't really a major frame rate drop or stuttering but i'm sure it would bug me every once and a while when I get to thinking about it and paying attention.

I'll give you two thumbs up for the interface and ease of use, but only one thumbs up for the video smoothness/framerate.
