I think the best person to answer is you!
Give that "free" MacX software a try.
You can download a trial from their web site.
If you think it's OK for your use, then you can purchase it (there's a time and use limit for the "free" edition) - or upgrade to the "Pro" version to actually make it useful.
Looks like it's on sale right now for about US$40, or a full install for up to 3 computers for $50
I find their "buy" page a little confusing about what you can get, and how much it costs. http://www.macxdvd.com/mac-dvd-ripper-pro/buy.htm
thanks, I downloaded their macx dvd ripper mac free edition. It is really free without any function limited. I would like to share where it is different from handbrake after using for a period of time.
