Nuance PDF Converter is very good.
Pros: NONE WITH NUANCE
Cons: Was a big supporter/user of Scansoft's PaperPort Products, then PP sold out/changed to Nuance. Recently bought PDF Converter Pro 5.0. Terrible software, NO Support, Surprised they don't charge to view their Home Page. Avoid Nuance products at all costs!
Summary: No Support! Bought PDF Converter Pro 5.0 for advertsied email package archiving only to find it doesn't work. Nuance Customer support is non-existant (unless you want to pay more $$). Worst I have ever seen, too bad, (previous company ScanSoft) was a class act. Not a cheap test product, prepare to get burned once Nuance has your $$!
Nuance is all about selling. There are no upgrades to new products and zero support.
