Yes I did search but the threads were old. Is the LG still the drive to get for ripping? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VPGL5U?tag=intercept-kb-20&tag=hardfocom-20 or should I look at something different?
I've been running my LG WH14NS40 since October of 2013. Haven't had a hiccup. Ripped probably 50-60 BluRays.
edit: Correction. Just checked my ISOs folder. 184 rips. (And, come to think of it, I should probably rip the stuff I bought the wife for Christmas.)
Just bought a second one (for bluray 3 drives total), fantastic drive. Burns dual layer (50GB) as well.
