I heard they make excellent cup coasters...

 

While ejecting the cd tray out of the drive also makes an excellent cup holder..

The reflect light well, so you an use them to signal an aircraft in a search and rescue situation.

Put them in a vault. They will be worth a lot of money one day.

I regularly burn CD's for my CDJ's (DJ purposes)

 

Can play from USB as well but I don't like scrolling through hundreds of titles, CD's work well

Why not put less on the USBs then? or use SD cards if you want something smaller but still swappable?

Swapping CD's is easier than swapping USB sticks (especially in night club environments). And USB sticks are more costly (even though the cost has decreased dramatically)

 

Also the feel is just better with physical media (I started with vinyl but that has become highly impractical) :)
