iToolSoft Blu-Ray DVD Ripper
In addition to taking Blu-Ray media, iToolSoft's ripper also handles regular DVDs. It's a little more expensive, but if you need an all-round robust solution then this could be a good choice.
Like most ripping software, it's a real money saver. You won't need a cash advance if your movie collection gets trashed, because you can back it all up!
A plethora of output formats are supported, for both video and audio-only options. A very useful feature is that by setting a "start time" and "end time" you can rip just a section of the disc if you don't want the whole thing.

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper
The Blu-Ray Ripper from Pavtube also supports both Blu-Ray discs and standard DVDs. The software can break through any copy protection schemes used and rip directly onto the hard disk, utilising compression for smaller file sizes if wanted.
Converter and Editor tools are packed in as well. Unfortunately this software sometimes freezes and should not be your first choice.
