I'm converting straight to mkv RF:19. So far they look pretty good and range from 800MB - 1.5GB
Many years ago I did mine to VIDEO_TS folders as its what Windows XP Media Center used and it took me considerably less time... but your way fits on less media so I suppose that's a plus.
I went so far as to find folder.jpg's for every DVD so when browsing my collection, it was like browsing what nearby them in cases.
With the smaller size it won't be as hard to keep backups. I can't imagine having more than 4 TB of movies and 4-5 of TV series.
