thanks, I just read about (again, lol) people seeing 30-40 minute rips and I'm nowhere near that. The laptop was one of the only ones around with a BD drive at the time so I figured there might be faster units out by now. How much of a difference they will make is of course an unknown to me, but I figure that even if the 6, 8, and 12x speed drives are nowhere near those figures they still have to be far beyond my 1.6x/~56mbps rip speeds.
