I've used Audiograbber, MMJB, Zlurp!, EAC, and several other programs to
rip CDs. I'm a convert to EAC. When I finish ripping in EAC, I don't
have to listen to the entire rip for errors. I don't have to wonder if
a tick, pop, or other form of distortion is a result of an erroneous
rip. If EAC says that the rip was error-free, it's good. I can burn it
to CD for my car MP3 player. I can transfer it to my Archos JB. I can
transfer it to my solid-state MP3 player.

I encode with LAME using the "extreme" preset and a whole CD will rip
and encode in about 15 minutes, which I consider to be quite tolerable.
  I'm going to listen to it over and over, so why worry about whether
the rip/encode takes six minutes, ten minutes, or fifteen?
