I haven’t really ripped many cds recently. I mostly rip movie dvd discs.
At the present time, I would avoid any new/recent LG dvd drives for ripping movie dvd discs.
(Though LG bluray drives seem to fine, and so far don’t appear to have any fatal reading problems on bluray movie discs).
Over the past 5 years or so, I’ve been primarily using LiteOn iHAS124 drives (and clones). For most of my dvd movie discs, it only takes around 11 minutes to rip an entire double-layer dvd disc with dvddecrypter. (Assuming the discs don’t have any major manufacturing defects).
I also keep a Samsung SH-224FB dvd drive around, largely to handle problematic dvd discs with crappy quality control. For example, such as Universal + Warner titles released as double-sided dvd18 flipper discs (back in the mid-late 2000’s), and titles released by bottom-feeder movie companies with crappy disc quality control such as Mill Creek, Echo Bridge, etc …
