Please assist a newbie: I have downloaded the software, played with the menus and read thru the posts. However, before I purchase a burner (I plan on buying a Plextor 708a and only using the highest quality Verbatim or Ritek DVD+R blanks) I would like to know what the viewable quality of the copies looks like compared to the originals. I have tested the compression ratios on about 4 DVD's and see that they tend to fall in the range of 50-60 percent (with everything I can get rid of unchecked). If I just used DVD shrink, what would I notice in terms of "lack of quality" in the copy as opposed to the original (assuming I use Nero to burn). I have noticed that many new movies have two copies on the DVD (widescreen & standard) and I could use DVD Stripper & Decrypter to enable me to only have to copy one version of the movie. Would this give me noticably better quality since the compression ratio would be less. Hopefully you can tell that I have done my "homework" and would just like some feedback on the "final product quality"...something I have not found when reading through the posts. Thank you in advance.
