Have you ever had a CD in hand with no place to put it?

Posted at 01 April 2004 05:52 CEST by Crabbyappleton
More strange news is out on the net tonight. Disc-it™ is a highly effective, revolutionary new concept product designed to conveniently store discs such as CD's, CD-R's CD-ROMs DVD's and Games Discs that are in frequent use. Disc-it™ provides Ultra-Convenient, protective storage of CD's while helping to reduce the clutter and inconvenience of jewel cases and similar storage devices from the desktop, stereo, entertainment center and practically everywhere people actively use CD's. The unique concept of Disc-it™ has been designed and developed by Mike Scanlan, President of Scanlan Enterprises, Inc. Scanlan realized that no one actually puts frequently used discs back into their protective cases, so he designed a simple and practical device to protect and hold discs that are in use. "Early indications show that demand for Disc-it™ in both promotional and retail markets will be overwhelming," stated Scanlan, 'It's a no brainer" he adds, 'it takes someone about a second to comprehend the merits of the device, once they try it, they can't imagine how they ever managed without it". Not bad actually, when dual layer comes out, this puppy will store nearly 70 gigs of data safely, and all for less than 5 dollars US. That's about the cost of one disc! Disc-it™ has a suggested retail price of $ 4.99 and is currently available in four colors: Translucent Red, Translucent Blue, Black and White. Disc-it™ makes a great gift for anyone, anytime. Disc-it™ is the perfect promotional item and can be personalized with a printed logo. More information can be found at MyDiscit.

    How is this any different (besides the angle the disc sits at) than a normal spindle that blank media comes in?

              I would just end up stacking 5 or 6 on top of each other and completely defeat the purpose.

                When the dreams come true ... I designed and then built the same item 4-5 years ago, by my hand in metal; the color was silver.

                      Well now - when I'm crouched down under the desk swapping disks in my tower I often wish I had one of these handy little things to put one of the disks on rather than the carpet.

                        this idea is not as bright as it may seem. I use 10-disc spindles that come for free. regardless it's an April's fool joke or not, I still don't think this is such a breakthrough.

                            Minor scratches are really unimportant on data CDs, as they does not usually affect reading unless its really serious or large in area. Only important is on audio CD and VCD which are affected more by those scratches.

                                  They do have a top domain website and E-mail address, although no other information other than the above image and a link to E-mail them. The domain name had been registered August last year and belongs to echoarts.com, so quite unlikely to be an April's fool joke. Even if the image is doctored, it probably has been published to see how the public react rather than risk mass produce it first and find out no one is interested. Then again, I have lost several DVD+RW discs as a result of them getting scratched by laying them around (Memorex discs are very easily scratched). DVD+R's and CD-R's don't seem to mind minor surface scratches especially the Infiniti brand of writable and even rewritable discs. http://www.mydiscit.com

                                    Given that I found this thing at various sites via Google, such as http://www.garrettspecialties.com/html/discit.html I would believe it's a real product... And I could see a use for it...keeps discs off bad/dirty surfaces when you have to swap a few often...

Found a place that sells em indiv..."http://www.novelex.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=NCI0201"...and even stacking 5-6 discs doesn't defeat it...just keeps them together and off surface of table or desk...remember it's not only for PC's but any CD/DVD player...

                                        I tend simply to leave an open jewel case on my desk, and place the otherwise homeless disc down on the jewel case without necessarily pressing it home. It works for me - and I've loads of jewel cases!

                                            Q, How is Disc-it different? Bulk packed CD’s on a spindle type container have been around for many years now. The folks at S.E.I. have realized for many years, that virtually nobody actually puts frequently used discs back into their protective cases, so many aspects were considered and numerous designs went into the development and production of Disc-it‰. The objective was to design an attractive product that would protect and hold a number of CD’s with ultimate ease while adding excitement to stale and clutterd desktops, entertainment centers etc. The unique shape and size of Disc-it‰, with the tapering top cone and the spherical support surface are design features that make this product user friendly, practical and aesthetically pleasing. One person described their ease of use with the product as “like throwing hoops on a match-stick”. The combination of the tapered top cone and the spherical bearing surface on which the disc sits, allows for easy alignment of the disc(s) while also allowing the disc(s) to pivot so that they can be easily seen, handled and picked up, even when Disc-it‰ is up high, on a monitor or shelf for example, it is very easy to place and remove discs from it. Try putting a packing spindle high above your shoulders and removing the bottom disc, all without standing, and with one hand. We think you’ll find Disc-it‰ to be the more practical solution. Disc-it‰ takes far less space and is arguably far more attractive than a packing spindle.

                                              No. Disc-it makes use of an integral stacking ring that is built around the hole of all discs that are or have been manufactured within the last 10 years. This ring is molded into the disc and is there to separate the discs from each other when they are stacked, shipped handled and loaded into a disc-drive.

                                                Why is Disc-it a better solution than this? An open jewel case will hold at best (double CD case) 2 CD’s. If the disc is not pushed “home”, the CD’s are alowed to come into contact with damaging surfaces that will scratch the disc. If the disc is pushed home, it is far more difficult to remove from the mechanical grasp of the center hub, than it would be if it were simply sitting on a Disc-it. An open jewel case occupies a much greater space on the desktop than the 2.5” diameter footprint of Disc-it. Placing more discs on a disc placed in an open jewel case will only lead to damage of those discs. They will slide around, fall off, get scratched and eventually become useless. Disc-it is arguably far more attractive sitting on the desktop, than an open jewel case.
