    I'm interested in getting an internal blu-ray drive for ripping my blu-ray collection. That's all I really intend to use it for. I understand all newer models have the riplock feature, but I've been reading that some are capable of having UltraQuiet disabled to speed up the read, or they can be flashed with a different firmware. Can anyone give me advice on which to buy? LG BH16NS55? Pioneer BDR-2209? And how to disable or bypass this riplock 'feature?' What did you spend your $ on? Thanks all

    Bypass it? You don't.

    I've got an 5 year old Plextor PX-LB950SA and a new Asus BW-16D1HT (€85) both with "original" firmware. Asus is the better one, especially in reading speed. I don't use the Plextor anymore. I ripped about 20 blu-ray's succesfully with the Asus and RedFox AnyDVD.

    Plextor is an old design, based on LiteOns iHBS 212 2 and not known to be the fastest ;)

    The Asus is a clone of the LG BH16NS40 and in some way faster
