    Lightscribe Discs

    Not sure this is the place to write this, but I am looking for the best quality disc maker that makes lightscribe discs.

    From my experience and views from others Verbatim, Infiniti and Imation. From the lightscribe site they show these makes.

    > Visit the Aleratec website.
    > Visit the Axxen website.
    > Visit the BenQ website.
    > Visit the HP website.
    > Visit the Imation website.
    > Visit the Infiniti website.
    > Visit the Memorex website.
    > Visit the Omega Freestyle website.
    > Visit the Philips website.
    > Visit the Platinet website.
    > Visit the PRIMEON website.
    > Visit the SmartTrack website.
    > Visit the TDK website.
    > Visit the Verbatim website.

    I know these arent exactly expensive or will have a gulf in prices, but I dont want crappy discs that get lots of coasters.

    Any opinions muchos appreciated

    Re: Lightscribe Discs

    Verbatim, Imation, Memorex are recognised good brands, Philips and TDK are also well known. As for which one is 'best' (Whatever you mean by best) I wouldn't like to say. Certainly you shouldn't have problems with any of those brands

    Verbatim gets my vote.

    Re: Lightscribe Discs

    Thanks peterb, glad you found it useful, I too thought it made interesting reading when I stumbled across it a while back...

    Programs such as 'DVD Info Pro' (and probably a few others I'm not aware of) are useful for reading manufacturer codes from media, googling media codes can turn up lots of information also...

    Re: Lightscribe Discs

    OK cool. The last batch of DVD-RW i got were Verbatim and theyve been pretty good, just wanted to make sure they were still good - will carry on getting them then.

    Cheers all and thanks sema4 for the link
