Are you stuck with a clunker of a disc duplicator? Maybe your machine was top of the line 5 years ago, and now it’s a high mileage unit that’s limping along with a drive or two out of commission. If this sounds like you, you’ll be glad to hear that Rimage has just kicked off a new trade-in program.
Here’s how it works: trade in your old Rimage duplicator and get an instant discount of up to $6,000 off the purchase of a new Rimage unit. All you have to do is purchase your machine through a factory authorized dealer such as CDROM2GO to qualify for the savings.

About 7 months ago, we reported that Rimage was working on an updated version of their popular Prism and Producer series machines. We followed up 5 months later with an in-depth look at the Producer IV series. Now it’s time to take a look at the other new equipment we reported on: the Prism III.
The Prism has long been Rimage’s desktop workhorse. It is the least expensive thermal printer they make, and also one of the smallest. So what’s new with the Prism III versus the old PrismPlus?
Being an adult means that sometimes you have to do things that you don’t really want to do. At the top of most people’s lists are chores such as cleaning house, doing dishes, and yardwork. However, there’s a new 21st century chore for us in the digital age: making regular backups of our computer files.
Like all chores, backing up data is not fun – but it is important. As we live in an increasingly connected world, the amount of personal user data each of us generates increases exponentially. Between smartphones, tablets, and desktop/laptop computers, we have a multitude of ways to store and access our important information.
A checklist of files to back up should include emails, tax records, personal files, music library, saved videos, and your photos. I particularly want to emphasize the photo backup since this month is National Photography Month!
Every year TDK sells millions of blank CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs all over the world. Earlier this week, TDK announced that they are planning to withdrawal from the Blu-ray business entirely by March of 2014.
Over the next year, TDK will shut down or sell off its production lines that manufacture the company’s BD-R, BD-RE, and BD-XL discs. The company did not cite a reason for the withdrawal, which leaves us to draw our own conclusions.
One possibility is that TDK found it difficult to compete with other big name media manufacturers such as Sony, Pioneer, and Verbatim. Each of those companies has their own line of Blu-ray media at prices that TDK may not be able to match. We’ve written in the past about falling prices on Blu-ray discs, and it may be the case that there’s just not enough profit left in it for TDK.
