This service is useful to me because my husband still listens to CDs and I prefer all my music to be digital. So sometimes I buy him CDs and rip them for myself.

I also discovered a lot of CDs I had bought as gifts (and completely forgotten about), and also other CDs that I have no recollection of at all!!! We shall my teen and pre-teen nieces and nephews and I share any overlap in musical taste.
I only hope that when I bulk import these into iTunes, it will ask me to skip duplicates, since I have already imported many of my own CDs.
