I am in the process of doing the same thing. CDs was essentially completed several years ago, but I was too much of a movie collector during the DVD/BD age. One thing is that you need a subscription with WD to have a new disk delivered every month... Especially newer Blu-rays may up to 50 Gigabytes, and you can fit only 20 of them per TByte of hard disk space. (Luckily, disk is cheap nowadays; the problem is fitting them in your PC cabinet - I don't have a NAS.) My first 64 GB USB stick was bought to hold a single BD movie; I was taking it to a party for watching it with friends.

The other problem is that the DVD/BD manufacturers make new copyright protections all the time. With some of the newer movies I haven't succeeded in e.g. getting the play menu to work properly; I have to drag the correct video file onto the player with the mouse, and I can't play it on a TV set with a USB socket - they require a proper menu structure file for navigating.

Still there are movies I want to see and preserve, so I must buy them on an physical medium - because they are not available for preserving in any other format. Same with music: I do buy CDs when I discover new and exciting music. So I will keep my CD/DVD/BD player in my PC for all foreseeable future.
