Approximately how many Blu-Ray movies without extras, subtitles and one HD sound track can be ripped to a 1TB hard drive without compromising bitrate or signal quality?

Thank you.

Its like dvds they vary in size because of the length and the PQ. Some are 20gb some are 40gb. You are going to run out of space quick though.

Average size of main movie titles with one HD track varies between 20GB-to-30GB.
35 movies would be a realistic number for uncompressed 1 title backups.
Depending on the authoring and thus the file size, the number could go up or down.

A lot depends on how you rip them. If you rip the entire disc, then there is no way to estimate since they vary so muck with the special features, directors/ heater/extended cuts, etc... However, if you use clown BD and just rip the movie, then it's a little easier. I always estimate 25gb per BD (movie only). Hope this helps.
