Hello. I have been meaning to rip my UHD discs in my computer to have backups of my collection should the need arise. I found a software that I would like to use for this (the https://m.dvdfab.cn/uhd-ripper ) but I am not entirely sure if computer has the necessary specs to do this. What I have is a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop and the technical specifications are:

Display: 
15.6" UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) 4K LED-backlit Truelife Touchscreen Display

Processor: 
Intel Quad Core i7-6700HQ 2.6 GHz Processor (4 Core 8 Threads , 6M SmartCache, up to 3.50 GHz)

Storage Drive: 
1 TB Hybrid SSHD

Memory RAM: 
16 GB DDR3L SDRAM (UPGRADED - Seal is broken in order to upgrade RAM)

Network: 
WiFi + BlueTooth

Graphics:
Dedicated NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5 VRAM

Operating System: 
Windows 10 Home 64-bit

2-in-1 Card Reader:
Supports SD and MMC cards

Ports: 
1 USB3.0
2 USB2.0
1 HDMI 1.4
1 Ethernet (RJ-45)
1 headphone/microphone combo jack


I also have an external 4k drive called BDR-XD06J-UHD Pioneer Ultra HD Blu-ray Portable USB 4K Bluray Drive Supports BDXL/BD/DVD/CD. Here is the link for that one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XGRHR2H/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thank you all for your time.

That processor is 'kaby lake' so you should be ok. It has the hardware acceleration needed to reduce the conversion time to something reasonable. If you go for it, can you post as to what happened ... quality and time for rip etc.?

robert600: Excellent. In that case, I am getting it tonight. And sure, should it work right away I will share some of my experience in this thread.

Which of the 6 profiles are you thinking of ripping with? The MKV.4K.H265.10bit looks interesting to me - I guess you'd have to try a few of them out and see what they produce. I see that TB HD filling quickly lol.

I am most interested in the MKV Passthrough lossless format because I got my home theater with the necessary specs for full blown 4k and because storage won't really be a problem. I currently have a fast external hard drive of 2 terabytes and I will have a new one before the month is over, which will bring me a total external storage to 6 terabytes. So, I am interested in getting the highest quality copies possible for my currently 30+ UHD movie collection. I calculate it should take around 1.8 Terabytes give it or take and I am free this weekend so I think I am good. I just needed to be sure my specs could handle that software.

Will keep this thread posted.

Since the MKV Passthrough involves little or no encoding and compression ... it should be one of the quicker formats ... hopefully around 1 hour for a 2 hour movie ... it will be interesting to see.

"So, I am interested in getting the highest quality copies possible for my currently 30+ UHD movie collection. I calculate it should take around 1.8 Terabytes give it or take"

Averaging 60 GB per movie seems optimistic to me. I guess it depends on whether you go the movie-only route or if you get all the features and languages as well. But, whatever, sounds like you have lots of storage.
