Has anyone used one of these things?

Hehe. That looks pretty funky, but I’d worry about the disc being scratched as it came out of the front of the case.

Never seen one until you posted it. :eek:

I’ve never actually tried one of these, however.

I’m eyeing some brand spankin’ new Century CD units (Support Site - the original company is dead):

that I could get for only $20 (was $66+ back in 2006), which is basically an older version of this:

DigiStore Solution’s Centurion CD - and still completely compatible (only the inner mechanisms are “updated”). Though not as cool-looking as Imation’s offering, the functionality is better (tougher internal components/design, the disc gets ejected completely into a catcher - fingerprinting a disc is avoided) and it’s much cheaper (DiscStakka = ~%100?). I’ve been looking into the DiscStakka for quite a while but found it too expensive for me to actually buy.

I hope that I do get some kind of support for the Century CD units since they’re already out of production - I’m still deciding if I should purchase them though… :wink:
