When Will Cds Die?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I doubt it'll be for quite a few years yet, walking around a shop the other day I saw video tapes, first time in about 5 years.

Damn xD

Unreliable as in they get scratched easily >.< and with low amount of data capacity i was more talking with CDs.

For me Itunes is no hassle, mainly because I only use apple devices and I'm not sure but you can buy/rent movies from itunes and download them to any device (apple or not)

I guess you have never used Blu-Ray? Blu rays are scratch proof.

I really don't think that optical media will ever go away. It's needed.

How else do you make a backup of something? You could use cloud, but that would take forever (and let's assume you have a horrible upload speed like most people). So what's the other option?

Well you could use harddrives.

But they can become outdated and randomly die, plus they can get wiped with a magnet. They are also prone to degradation of the plates/whatever's on them.

Ok, so now your left investing is multi-thousand dollar tape drives or optical.

You can't print out photos and be able to re-edit them or make more print :P you also can't print out a system backup.

I doubt they'll die within 20years. Some people just like the box ect. I know I bought Dark Knight blu ray trilogy box set because of the niceness.

Obviously, cds are in a decline, which i think is good.

Music for example. In my city, there used to be plenty of music stores, but they slowly faded away because of the digitalization.

Same goes for movies. But a lot of people, enthusiasts, love to have a solid copies for collections and such, and blu-ray is definitely advanced enough.

 

With that, i believe that discs will be around for a long time still.

I still go out and buy an artist's cd if it really peaks my interest. But, since the advent of CD-Quality (I.e. 320kbps or higher) MP3, or FLAC audio files, I can just download them now and save a trip to the store. Still, I like the album cover, artist info, as well as the high-quality CD. My biggest thing is still burning CD's for in my old Pioneer radio, amplified Polk DB6501's, 2 8" subs for some bass, and audio clarity in my Silverado. :)

 

IMHO, you still can't get any better quality than an album listened to with tubed preamps and an analog signal. Give me some good old Led Zeppelin, Marshall Tucker Band, Gordon Lightfoot, or John Denver on a record, with an adjustable, weighted needle and hi-fi output and I'm in heaven!

And then there's me, with Vinyl. CD won't die for a long time and neither will Vinyl. Magnetic tape, that's really dead.

But that's for music. Data storage with CD is just about dead. I haven't used CD for storage in a while but I still have a drive in my PC for watching movies and burning CDs  I still use DVD for bootable OSes for old PCs. I don't know about you guys, but I really like seeing an old G3 mac or a pentium 3 tower booting into something I can use  :)

I thnk it'll take a little more time before CDs actually die.  Some people may still be using but in my personal experience I haven't been using CDs for quite a really long time already.

Magnetic tape isn't dead. It's actually the preferred system for backing up servers. It's what every enterprise uses.

Define "dead."  Hell, even vinyl records aren't dead in a sense.  They are still being produced and sold with contemporary music.  Also, optical media is good for long term storage of archival data if it's kept dry.  Nand flash has some issues with long term storage because of its interface requiring exposed copper.


Laws only govern the honest.
