Using iCloud for central store to sync various devices – does it work?

Historically I’ve been wary to advise users to change from using a computer to sync there iPhone / iPod to the iCloud because my original experience of it was that it was not quite there yet and only purchased music went into the iCloud,

But have things changed now?  We have some users with multiple devices who want to use it on the understanding that from once activated, they won’t have to sync with a computer anymore?

They believe that everything including, photos, all music, including non-commercial tracks that they upload to it will all just be available, and when they get a new device such as an iPad, they can just enter their ID and it will all download to the device, no computer required?

Is this accurate. If this is the case, how does one then get say a CD into the iCloud library? I assume for this, this is when you would need a computer in order to load the must into your iCloud library.

I welcome anything that helps give a practical, real life view of using iCloud as a central store.

Thanks in advance.

Icloud has come a long way and is now very good.

You can sync most things (important ones anyway).

You can still rip a cd into your itunes on laptop and then sysnc with phone and then sync to icloud.
