Ranked very high on Google but delivers the slowest result! More than 1 hour has passed I still haven’t received the converted file. It requires email to deliver the result, Captcha even makes the convert process more complicated. It does not support batch mode or ORC function. I’m not seeing a file size limit. I’m not sure how well it can convert PDF to word but definitely I will not wait for this long.

Delivers a very similar good results as UniPDF does. Format is well kept. It does not require email address so you can directly download the converted file. It supports rtf and html but limits the file size to 2 MB. OCR function is also not supported. It takes 52 seconds to convert the sample PDF file which is quite tolerable.

The format is quite good (possibly the best) compared with the original PDF file but I don’t know why it only converted 2 pages of the 4 page PDF sample. The conversion takes 42 seconds. It does not require email address, which is good. It does not support batch mode or OCR. It dose not have a file size limit and supports output formats docx,doc,rtf.

Different from the above, it’s an onlne OCR PDF to Word converter, meaning you could convert image or scanned PDF file into word. However, during the test it converted only the first page of the sample PDF file. I tested it two times but the same results.

Again it requires an email address. Luckily it only takes 60 seconds to receive the converted doc file. The other formats are kept fine but tables are mixed. It does not support batch mode or OCR.

I’m not seeing its advantages. It requires email and failed to keep the original formats. A 4-page PDF file are converted into a 6-page Word file. What’s good about this online PDF converter is that it supports many formats, if you are looking for a online PDF converter can do a lot of format conversions. Try this one.

I liked this one. It might be a little difficult to find the online convert option as it’s promoting their desktop software like us (but we are freeware). However the whole process is very simple and easy. You only need click the button (hide on the bottom) once to download the converted Word doc. The whole conversion takes 41 seconds and the formats are well reserved.
