I'm no DVD authoring expert, I just need to share films, images and files among family and friends -and these discs do the job fine. The lightscribe system does all it needs to do for me -it prints tidy, monotone labels (and images if you wish) into the coating of the disk -much better looking than the usual marker pen!
I use an HP DVD940e (also bought from Amazon) and I've no regrets. Both products are a great price and I'll keep using them for a while yet!

I used to use discs from another manufacturer, but decided to try Verbatim as they were more cost-effective, and other customer reviews suggested there were less "failures" with the lightscribe.
This has proved to be the case, I've had no problems using these discs at all.

One minor niggle is that the discs do not come in different background colours. But of course that doesn't affect their performance, which is very good. I'll stick with Verbatim in future.

Am I missing something?

It takes a long time to write the image and the result is disappointing black & white. You can see the images if you look close up but it isnt clear enough.

I will not buy any more and will switch back to sticky labels. Sorry.

I bought these Lightscribe DVD's and I'm very disappointed. Compared to some other CD Lightscribe media (which is PIN SHARP), these produce very blurry designs. I'm contacting the supplier to find out if there's an issue.

These discs are absolutely fine from a data storage point of view. You need to increase the contrast in the lightscribe control panel, and ideally keep text & pictures separate (rather than overlay) for best results. Very different to an inkjet print, but does have some appeal with its slightly metallic look. Took about 20 minutes to print each disk on my LG drive.

Both the data and the labbelling sides worked fine on my HP laptop. (using Ulead DVD movie factory 6 for both burning and labelling) Labelling a full 12cm disc takes about 22minutes on increased contrast and best quality settings. Used more than 35of these already, because lightscribe DVDs cost exactly the same as regular DVDs so i see no point in using non-lightscribe DVDs anymore. Why are they so cheap? - you may ask. It's because they dont actually do that much. They have a rather low "resolution" you can see some blocks and squares in you want to print fine drawings, you can also see the rings from burning the images, they smell of graphite, are easy to damage (even permanently damaged by greasy fingers) and they fade with time. The printed discs look literally like someone just sketched something onto the discs. But this isnt the fault of these discs its juts the technology. And would the discs cost a penny more i'd use regular ones.
Anyone who has a little money to spare i'd reccomend using labelflash technology. Much clearer, much higher resolution images, no circle marks, more shiny, and just prettier on the whole. The end result looks like real engraved images within the disc > not on top. Labelflash has much more shades of the color so much nicer images can be printed. Will upload some comparison pictures soon. Thanks for reading.

Lightscribe disks do what they say on the tin: you can print basic stuff in a single colour direct to your DVD or CD without a printer. The disk print surface is delicate and will smudge easily if you get finger marks on it. But you pay a lot more than for a non-lightscribe disk. You get better value and more variety using Inkjet printable disks in an inkjet printer.

Item as described. Burnt a two image plus text title disc in 24minutes. Compared it to an Infiniti disc using the same label and the verbatim disc had better contrast. Both discs burnt in the same time. Pity they don't sell a larger spindle size.

I've had no issues with Verbatim discs and these ones are working out just fine. Lightscribe might take a while to print, but it's waterproof and won't smudge! Useful for wedding CD/DVD discs where clients want a nice looking disc and you can make your own designs up for them.

I use acoustica CD/DVD label maker and they have a lot of templates to pick for lightscribe discs.
So far very pleased with the discs no duds and no problems with printing via lightscribe either. Price is very fair too not really worth bothering with some of the ultra cheap brands with these discs around.

The discs work well and the effect is pleasing. Each disc takes about 25 minutes to print depending on how complicated you make the deign you are going to put on it. I think the original colour is the best as shows off the Laser printing strongest. When finished turn over the disc and burn in you pictures or files in the normal way.
