wondering what dvd rip speeds you all been getting ? I am needing to get a new dvd rom drive. I want fast rip times to rip my dvds for backups . So any help would be great. Thanks all in advance. Also brand and speeds to rip a full dvd would be great. Trying to backup stuff

This’d be better off in the Recording Hardware Forum.

Factory DVD single-side, dual layer rip speeds are 4x - there are physical reasons for this. Various FW hacks work around it to achieve 12x. Plenty of info on the site.

The Lite-On (JLMS 166S) can do about 8x (max) for dual layer movies.
With hacked firmware, most of the newer Toshiba DVD-ROM drives can do 10x. See this page: http://hijacker.rpc1.org/toshiba_nolimit/
However, the Toshiba is better at reading lower quality recordable DVD media.
