By choosing less compression, say five or six gigabytes, you can store 150-200 movies on a terabyte. At this size, the detail loss will be minimal.

Note that Handbrake does require a PC with a lot of horsepower. My older Intel i7/920 took over an hour to compress an average sized movie... My newer i7/6700 computer does the same in 25-30 minutes.
Without compression, you can fit just 50 bluray's on a 1TB drive? Ok, well, 4TB drives cost $100. If you cannot afford $100 to store 200 full quality bluray discs(I can't imagine many people have much more than that) then I'd have to question how you even paid for your bluray's.

I figured since this was a Audio/Video science forum that not many people would be compressing their videos that horrendously. I would much rather take the 60 seconds to get up and insert the bluray disc into the drive and watch it full quality than spend 30 minutes re-authoring a 45GB bluray disc down to 5GB.

There are many people who cannot tell the difference between DVD and Blu-ray video quality. Sometimes I wish I was one of them. Life would be simpler.

If that model i3 processor supports QSV it will be plenty fast enough. He just has to use the H.264 Intel QSV codec in Handbrake.

If all of our displays were small and we sat far away, no one could tell the dif between 480i60 and 1080p24. Twelve feet from a 10' screen ... well, when I first moved to BD I had a lot of titles on DVD that weren't available on BD, so I kept them. After watching my second BD, they got tossed as I knew I would NEVER watch them.

This is exactly what happened to me, I found a 48 DVD carrying case in some old boxes in the attic a few months ago, it had one of my favorite movies, Troy. I thought to myself 'I haven't watched this movie in forever, lets watch it' so I popped it into my Xbox One and about puked.

I immediately put the DVD back into the case and put the case in the Goodwill box at my house, hopefully they look good to people less fortunate.

Actually, the size of native BD titles varies considerably but most are >20GB. Looking at the several hundred BD titles I have stored on the 3TB drives of my server, I find that I get on average 35 full bitrate BD titles with HD audio tracks per 1TB of disk space. I don't compress. Not worth the time or effort.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine
