mCubed's RipNAS Statement may be unique, but it isn't apt to be widely adopted -- at least not with price points like this. Hailed as the first SSD-based CD ripping NAS device, the product is also available in a traditional HDD form, though both handle automatic ripping, NAS duties and media stream

We'll be perfectly honest with you -- the Atom-powered RipNAS definitely caught our interest when it launched with practically no major competitors back in February. Now, the RipNAS family has grown by two with the introduction of the Statement SSD and Statement HDD. We're told that the former is t

Not that we haven't seen Atom-based NAS devices before, but we've yet to see one with an integrated optical drive. Looking to serve a unique niche that still hasn't transferred that CD collection to HDD, the RipNAS combines an audio CD ripper with oodles of network-accessible storage space, and as

Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about technology, multimedia, and digital entertainment. As discussed in last week's Switched On, the PopCatcher Ripper scours FM radio stations to separate the music from the mumble and transfer songs to flash drives, memory cards and several

Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about technology, multimedia, and digital entertainment. Before MP3 players, CD burning and even the Mini-Disc, there was the analog mix tape. Patient proto-playlist creators would wait as a needle hovered over vinyl, descending into a groove

We've become accustomed to seeing some good looking hard-drive video units from Korea's TViX, and the company's latest, the M-3100U, appears to be no exception. Besides having a sleek, HTPC-style case, the M-3100U can record video content from a TV, PC or just about any analog source, and can save

If you're still buying your music on shiny round discs and want to rip it on the go, the ¥19,800 (about $169) SeaGrand ez6 seems like a relatively painless way to get it done. Put a disc in the portable player, plug in a USB drive or SD card, and rip away. Of course, you won't have the usual co

Infiniti's G35 may be the most expensive CD ripper you ever bought (or lusted after, anyway). The new 2007 G35 has an in-dash system apparently outfitted with not only a CompactFlash slot, but a CD player that will also rip and encode your CDs for storage on an internal drive of unspecified size (we
