I'm looking to buy an internal blu-ray burner for my 2009 Mac Pro (2.66 quad-core cpu). I'm probably going to get the LG WH12LS39. Do the newer LG drives like this one have the sleeping problem or the clicking problem when there is no disc inserted? I'm going to use MakeMKV to rip blu-ray discs and then follow up with Handbrake to re-encode files at 720p that can be used in both Plex and an Apple TV2. Is this the best software combo to use or is there something out there more efficient? One last question. I never encoded HD video before (just DVD's). How long would it taken to rip and encode a blu-ray movie of 90 mins in length to 720p with decent quality (assuming my 2009 quad core Mac Pro model)? Is it on the order of 2-3 hours? Thanks in advance for your help!
