[Windows] PDF To Word Converter lets you… convert PDF files to DOC format

2013-10-08_235637 [1]dotTech has a review on best free PDF to Word (DOC, RTF) converter for Windows [2]. In that review we list an excellent program, UniPDF [2], for converting PDFs to DOCs/RTFs. If, however, you are unhappy with UniPDF, PDF To Word Converter is a program that wants your business. So is it worth it? Let’s take a look.

WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO

Main Functionality

PDF To Word Converter is a program that allows you to convert PDFs to DOC format. It supports batch processing so you can convert multiple PDFs one after another easily.

For those that are wondering, PDF To Word Converter is by the same developer that made PDFZilla [3]. In fact, PDF To Word Converter is simply the PDF -> DOC feature of PDFZilla available as a separate program.

Pros

Cons

Discussion

Using PDF To Word Converter is pretty easy and it has quite a good amount of PDF conversion features. However, a PDF converter is only as good as the conversions it can do; a PDF converter can have all the features in the world and could be the most easy-to-use program out there, but if it cannot convert properly, it is worth. So is PDF To Word Converter worthless? Eh…

As per my tests, conversion/output quality of PDF To Word Converter is fairly poor. See for yourself (all conversions were done at default settings):

As you can see, PDF to DOC is fairly poor:

Aside from performance, there are other aspects of PDF To Word Converter that I find lacking/can be improved:

CONCLUSION AND DOWNLOAD LINK

If this program was free I would have a difficult time recommending it. However, this program is not free — it is a shareware program. As a shareware program, there is no way I can ethically tell you to go and spend your hard earned cash on PDF To Word Converter. Why? Simply because, generally speaking, the program has poor conversion quality. If you want to throw away $30, then grab PDF To Word Converter. If you would rather save your money and use a program that does excellent conversions, check out UniPDF [2].

UniPDF is an excellent freeware PDF to DOC, RTF, TXT, HTML, JPG, BMP, TIF, PNG, GIF, PCX, and TGA converter. Read dotTech’s review on best free PDF to Word converter for Windows [2] to learn more.
