    Lightscribe Discs

    Looking for some of these Lightscribe discs to try out in my new laptop, where's the best place to get them from? Bigpockets as good as anywhere?

    Thanks

    Yep, it can take up to 30 minutes just to burn the Lightscribe image onto a disc. Why not get a printer that prints onto discs instead.

    Bigpocket prices look good to me...I may order some myself now Ive just had a look.

    well......obviously you dont own a lightscribe drive.
    It gives a very nice finish to a disc without adding a cr*ppy sticker, scruffy writing, or a poor ink finish.

    You can end up with a quality finish - and for me this is important for my music production, anything to help my disc stand out in a pile of CDs on someones desk.

    Not really, as a PC does far more than a pen. Yet the 'lightscribe' function of the drive is purely to 'scribe' a label onto the face of a disc.

    I find a pen usually suffices as I don't normally require an outstanding finish and non-lightscribe discs are far cheaper it would appear.

    If you do require a nicely finished disc, I'm sure lightscribe does a fantastic job within its monochrome limits. Bash on sir.

    So is lightscribe. Alan from the navy loves it for labelling his racist and sexist comedy DVDs. Also, I'm sure Johnny would recommend lightscribe as a 'killer' feature, which speaks volumes.

    I own 2 lightscribe drives, which is exactly the reason I bought a printer that can print directly onto a disc. The results are far quicker and much more professional looking than Lightscribe. In my case I bought a Canon MP600, which has a dedicated tray for discs. It takes about 30 seconds to print. Compare this with up to 30 minutes for a Lightscribe disc, depending on the burner and number of passes.
    Each to their own though!
