    Unless you have a very slow PC, that is not very productive. DVDs only take about 5 minutes to handbrake on my PC. Bluray take about 20 minutes. Granted, I have a pretty fast hexcore/hyperthreading Intel, but even with my old setup (Core i5 Ivy Bridge), it was about 15 minutes per DVD and less than 1hr for a bluray.

    Dual hex core/72GB of RAM makes it even faster. >:)

    Handbrake is great if you want to save on space, and like someone else said, I really can't notice a difference. It does depend on the settings, but I have mine set to 20 on the video scale, and it's hard to tell a difference from the original. Occasionally I can see some banding as part of the extra compression/conversion, but that's rare.

    Additionally, the nice thing with Handbrake is you can queue all your movies for conversion. I would rip movies using MakeMKV and then run Handbrake during the night and through the next day with 20 or so movies in the Queue. By the time I got home from work, they were all complete. It will depend on your PC and if you are running handbrake files local to the machine or if you are pushing the input/output across the network to a NAS.

    If you want to convert movies faster, it's better to have the original and the converted

    The one issue I see with Handbrake is that I don't believe you can retain Dolby True HD, DTS:X, or Dobly Atmos as part of the stream. Maybe I am missing something, but I looked again last night to see and I couldn't see how to preserve those audio codecs. If someone knows how, I would love to know.

    Precisely the reason why I have Handbrake but don't use it. My intent is to be able to serve up content to my dedicated theater with Atmos once it is complete and that makes Handbrake a deal-breaker for me.

    Yeah...I'll use that excuse instead of my laziness.
    Now let me continue to look for the cheapest 8TB Red because I'm running out of storage...

    The latest versions of Handbrake have pass-through for Dolby TrueHD/ATMOS/etc. It was added a year or more ago. No worries there.

    I don't know if you have ever heard about VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper. It works amazingly well for me though it has to be paid. But I think it pays off cuz it is really powerful and efficient in ripping any dvd/blu-ray for me for playback on my windows and mac and even iphone.

    Actually I used to use Handbrake, but its complicated interface really drives me nut, so then I resorted to VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper.

    It really kills me! I love its amazingly fast conversion speed (which is powered by many accelerations) and HD output quality.
