For file quality concern
If storage space isn't really an issue for you and you are more concerned with quality than file size, MakeMKV is probably the best solution, you may wish to simply keep those files in their original size and quality. Many PC-based applications, like the VLC media Player, have no issues playing MKV files.
For storage space concern
If the goal is to copy Blu-ray/DVD to NetGear ReadyNAS in high-quality video that won't eat up all of the available space on your portable device(s), Handbrake will be the better option-or perhaps that a mix of Handbrake and MakeMKV-since the H.264 files it creates are much smaller and much more compatible, both ideal traits for use on mobile devices. You can start with the High Profile preset and perhaps scale the output down to a 720p file using the Picture tab.
However, both above two apps has its own drawbacks, the output MKV file by MakeMKV is too big and not so friendly for many portable devices. While the Handbrake lacks the capability to decrypt commercial Blu-ray & DVD disc, it can only works with home made disc items. Therefore, it is very essential for you to find a powerful alternative application to complete the task of Blu-ray/DVD to NetGear ReadyNAS backup.
