Windows 7: Handbrake Alternatives

Handbrake Alternatives

What are some alternatives for Handbrake? I've used Handbrake on my Mac for years, but heard the windows version doesn't work as well. I want to be able to backup copies of my DVD and also have digital versions for my netbook.

have you tried handbrake yourself?

Handbrake 0.9.6
Just a comment for Handbrake users I have found the recent release of the 64 bit version Handbrake 0.9.6 to be a "bit" flaky. Norton Insight community report a similar finding. I'm sticking with the new 32 bit version of V 0.9.6.
