Smallpdf is a completely-free-to-use online tool to convert your PDF files into Word files, just as it is possible for you to convert the same into various Office and image formats.

Depending upon size of file you have selected, it might take a few seconds or a few minutes to finish upload and you have to keep yourself in the page, all the time.

We uploaded a 180-page PDF file of around 600 KB size and what we got back was a 700 KB-weighing DOC file, with the same text quality kept.
We loved not only the simple process but also the lower file size Go4Convert has when it comes to action.
PDF to DOC conversion section of CloudConvert is indeed an impressive thing, as the service brings an advanced kind of PDF conversion procedure. The best thing that we loved about CloudConvert is the ability to choose multiple files, from your computer, URL or storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive. After selecting, you can click on ‘Start Conversion’ button, upon which the conversion process will be started. However, there are some additional tasks to do at the end of conversion procedure, such as mailing you, saving the converted file into Dropbox, Google Drive or Box.
It is to be noted that CloudConvert takes more time to perform the same file when compared to other tools we mentioned here. Also, the file size is high, around 5 times of Smallpdf or Go4Convert. Yet, we think CloudConvert will be an awesome option, at least for the advanced features you can have, accompanied by a noteworthy UI.

So, in consideration of all these features, Docs Zone is indeed a nice place where you can convert the PDF documents you want. Plus, we loved the progress bar very much. When it comes to time it’s consuming, Docs Zone in the mediocre position. But the worst aspect of Docs Zone conversion is that the output file is way too heavy to be managed.
