    2.50 / 5

Pros

  • Rip CDs to MP3, OGG, WMA or wave files quite well

Cons

  • Free alternatives available

Bottom Line

If MP3Producer were being given away, we'd probably give it a marginal nod, but with free programs such as BonkEnc, Windows Media Player, and others around we just can't see forking over $40 for any ripping program, let alone one with a cumbersome interface.

Would you buy this?

MP3Producer is an app that rips CDs to create MP3 files.

With the myriad of programs out there for ripping CDs and creating MP3s, you have to work hard to stand out from the crowd. We wish we could say that MP3Producer does, but at best it's a faceless man-in-the-middle product.

Not that MP3Producer doesn't rip CDs to MP3, OGG, WMA or wave, or transcode between those formats as stated.

It does all of that quite well, as a matter of fact. However, there are free programs that work just as well and MP3Producer forcing you to switch between CD to OGG, CD to WMA, WAV to OGG, etc. modes to deal with various file types becomes tiresome in a hurry.

Most programs let you add files en masse without regard to file type. If they don't support them, they just don't load them.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
