Ask LH: Which Blu-Ray Burner Should I Buy?

Dear Lifehacker, since January of this year I’ve been looking to buy an external Blu Ray burner so I can burn Blu-rays and DVDs to watch on my TV. Every site has their own “Top 10” but they’re all different. I’m not looking for the greatest, but at the same time I don’t want to spend 20 bucks on a piece of junk. I’m on an iMac that’s only a year old — so it’s not an outdated paperweight.

Ask LH: Why Is Renting Blu-ray Movies So Hard These Days?

Could the era of Full HD physical media be almost over?


Disc-2-Digital Will Put Your Blu-ray And DVD Discs In The Cloud For A Stupidly Large Fee

While it’s not particularly difficult to rip Blu-rays or DVDs, it’s technically illegal to do so in Australia. Disc-2-Digital is a service that creates legal, cloud-accessible versions of movies you own on physical media — but you’ll pay for the privilege.


Ask LH: Is It Illegal To Rip Bluray Discs I Paid For?

Hey Lifehacker, I would like to know what the law says about this situation: I bought a Blu-ray disc and now I want to make a digital copy of it so I can put it on my home media server. Is it illegal for me to download a copy of the movie, even if I have already bought it?


Ask LH: What's The Point Of UltraViolet?

I consider myself a little unusual as I purchase DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Some I have purchased recently proudly state on the packet DVD+UltraViolet or BluRay+UltraViolet. What is UltraViolet, and why should I care? As it stands, anything I want format shifted I do with HandBrake, and my home bandwidth means streaming isn’t really practical.
