I still use this all the time to copy over my DVD movies to my netbook (without any kind of optical drive), so I can watch 'em on the road without killing it's modest 300GB hard drive. It achieves pretty impressive compression ratios, and can rip a DVD fairly quickly on my modest workstation. Even when I get a DVD with a digital copy, I'll often use DVD Shrink to reduce the file size even further or avoid stupid DRM.
