I keep them as ISO, but remove the extras/menus still. Haven't had much luck with MKV, even if I keep the quality at 100% and don't transcode, I seem to have more problems with getting them to work. Seems like half of the programs that "convert" them to MKV mess up A/V sync or something else on ~30% of the content. I'm fairly confident i've tried all the major programs. ISO just works and it's a simple 1 step solution to remove things from it in DVDFab. If you have a device that supports playing ISOs natively, it seems like the way to go. Mounting them for PowerDVD or something would get annoying very fast. I know even XBMC supports natively playing BD ISOs now, no need to mount them. I see more and more people using ISO instead of MKV lately... but MKV is still definitely way more popular at the moment.
I look at it this way. My ISOs, even with the extras removed, is still the original movie/subtitles/audio for the main feature, completely unconverted. After you go to MKV, you can't go back to ISO. However you can go from ISO to virtually anything
. It seems like a more future proof solution, but I know lots of people that would disagree. I constantly get told "ISO files, really?!".
