Disc Manager takes aim at the pornography archivist demographic

pornarh.jpg

Eager to find a place for their optical disc caddy in a world moving inexorably towards other forms of storage, Disc Makers is now suggesting their Disc Manager — capable of locking certain discs inside the box unless you’ve got the proper password — is a “safe place to store your adult DVD collection.” A laudable and authentic pitch, if all too miscalculated: who buys pornography on DVD?

Are you looking for a safe place to store your adult DVD collection? Disc Makers has you covered with the Disc Manager 100. The Disc Manager 100 allows users to store and password protect certain DVDs owners may prefer to keep private. The Disc Manager 100 and its bundled software makes it easy to locate any file and eject the appropriate disc in seconds. It also protects your CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs from damage caused by improper handling, exposure to dust, and UV light. Users can stack up to five Disc Managers 100s – allowing parents to manage a 500 disc library with just one USB connection.

    I give the entire concept of this device an F-

    Buy a 3-inch binder. Buy a few packs of 8-slot CD sleeves for said binder (4/side on each sheet). Fill sleeves, and stuff into binder. You may be able to get 400 disks in a single binder this way. Two binders seems to be about the same size as one of these things. Put them in any convenient furniture with doors on the front. Buy a lock and a hasp from the hardware store, or a proper cabinet lock, as per your preferance. Install it.

    Considerably more storage per square foot, a few hundred dollars cheaper, requires no power, and does at least as good a job of keeping the kids (or, dare i say it, your parents) out of your collection.

    Unfortunately I know some luddites friends that buy pornography in DVD form. And yes, it takes a special kind of person to buy it and and admit it proudly.

    If you figure in that your standard porn DVD release is $50, it might be worth spending $99 on a lockable disc manager.

    This isn’t new at all.
    Imation’s Disk Stakka is actually the same product.

    We bought one in the office two years ago… and decided it was way more trouble than it was worth. Maybe if it could actually read the discs, jukebox style… even then, it’s of limited use.

    …Binders and sleeves, definitely.

    Hard drive, no pun intended.

    It’s interesting how people’s needs and values can be so different. Where one person gives this an “F-” and another advocates going the binder route, I called this the “hottest tech toy in town” in my own article on it.

    I own seven of them.

    While the main pitch of this particular carousel is the lockable aspect, the article never even touched on what makes these things so great — the database program, and specifically the fabulous Movie Collector program. More info here.

    eject? ejaculate?

    It is a truth universally ignored that the primary market for consumer data storage isn’t really people who’ve legally acquired all of the data they want stored, pornographic or otherwise.

    If you’re going to go to the trouble of buying and loading a turntable, wouldn’t one of the units with the DVD player built in be a better solution? That way you could select your next vid remotely without having to interrupt whatever else you’re doing.

    (Confession time: I do have a 200-disk player, so maybe I’m biased. On the other hand, it’s mostly loaded with something even less socially approved than porn: science fiction.)
