I've been using shink since version 1.something. I've had my burner for about a year. I watch my backup on my 78" screen (4:3 - X1 Projector) and hardless notice any quality loss (with few exceptions - Jurassic Park). I often see people mentioning just copying the main movie and making every attempt to get minimal compression. What are people watching these copies on that the ratio is so important to them? Maybe I'm not as picky. *shrug* I use AnyDVD, Shrink 3.2 (default deep analysis) and Nero.
