There is no doubt that both of them are professional iTunes DRM removal tool. But as an iTunes movie addict, I prefer to use DRmare M4V Converter. With easy-to-use interface, it enables you to remove DRM protection from these iTunes rentals and purchases, and convert iTunes M4V to common formats, such as MP4, MOV, AVI, MPEG, MKV.
