Pretty sure the major reason people hate CDs is because car CD players are universally terrible.
Just had a disc scratched to hell by my car CD player not ejecting it properly.
I can remember when only the Panasonic car CD players were good.
A lot of people don't realize they can play audio cds in their DVD/Blu-ray player. And, of course, they play on computers too.
@craigmaloney You don't have USB/MP3 in your car? How do you survive driving to the grocery store?
@mwlucas usually I use Bluetooth with my phone but I decided to use the CD player this time.
Scratched a disc I like in the process.
