If you use MakeMKV (not AnyDVD) for your backups, then the WH16NS60 (on firmware 1.00) is the best drive available for the job but not on your list.

If you want to use software other than MakeMKV then the ASUS BW-16D1HT (or PRO as they are the same drive, just different world region).

Personally, I have only ever had 2 out of approx 100 UHD's not read in my BH16NS55 on FW 1.02. Are you cleaning your discs before ripping? Even if they look spotless, most discs still need a clean before ripping.
