Not sure what brand, but I can dig them up tomorrow if you're looking for recs. I happened to have the DVD drive already and the Blu-ray drive was only like $70 I think. It takes 20-30 minutes depending to rip a DVD and maybe an hour or two to rip a blu-ray, depending on what's on there. Because I had the two drives, I was able to get through it faster, but I only had the idea after I had gotten like a third of the way through. Was unsure I could have both going at once until I actually tried. So yes, you can speed up the process with multiple drives. I did do full disc rips and I've named some of the files appropriately so Plex will recognize them as feature films or extras of the film. I'm fortunate that I work at home, so I'd have the cycle going while I was working. You get into a rhythm after a while. It didn't take the entire 4 months. Once you get used to things it'll go faster than you think.
