Is there any benefit to ripping Blu Rays to SSD and then copying them to a conventional HD for storage once finished, instead of just ripping straight to the conventional HD?
In other words, is the write speed of a conventional HD ever a bottleneck when you're ripping an .mkv from a Blu Ray to a conventional HD? What about with multiple BD drives ripping simultaneously? Assume 12X read BD drive(s).
You need to think backwards.
Optical disc seek time is the biggest bottleneck.
Your sata ssd 6gb/s could run circles around the optical disk about a billion times while your drive is seeking and takes the head transmit the data across the computer to the HD/SATA port. Plus, a Sata III Blu-ray drive would be kinda stupid. Maybe holographic discs will be able to utilise that kind of bandwidth but certainly not Blu-ray.
