So I'm one of the few dinosaurs left who still write important things to CD/DVD! As if being a dinosaur wasn't enough, I also have the added pleasure of still having a DVD drive capable of Lightscribe. I'm not sure how much longer these will be available for

Compared to writing on a DVD with pen, the quality of lightscribe is great, and far less fiddly than using those printable labels.

Verbatim seem to be pretty much the only brand left for lightscribe discs, which is no bad thing as I've never had a dud burn. Longevity wise I'm having no problems reading discs burnt 5 years ago so they should be good for at least medium term archival.

The surface is usual DVD goldish colour, these are not the coloured ones that were available a couple of years back.

(as a side note, having just done the upgrade to Win 10 both the lightscribe system software and the simple labeller continue to work great)

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.

I come to this technology a little late as I know it's been around for some years now, but what a thrill it is. Design your own artwork and have it laser etched into the 'A' side. Even if your creativity is limited to just writing a title, pick an attractive font, hit go and watch the resulting CD really pop with style. A must have for anyone who presents material on CD or DVD to others and wants to not miss a trick when it comes to making an impression.

I bought these to burn old VHS home movies onto DVD and more importantly to use 'light scribe' to make covers for the discs. I did have a problem using 'light scribe' with a couple of the discs but that could of been the DVD drive I had. Three years on and the discs have faded but not too much and play as though they are new so a win win for me.

These work as they should, but the resulting image is pretty faint and text hardly stands out against any photographic image etc.
I have used these and there is a minimal wow factor due to rarity factor as the disk is kind of gold with a etched effect, but in reality most people prefer a stuck on printed label in full colour that's easy to read.

Had a problem getting HP discs to work with my PCs writer, the LightScribe software wouldn't detect a disc when I used HP. The Verbatim discs have worked brilliantly, with a double burn on them, with settings set to best, the finish is really good, I'm very happy with the discs and will be ordering more. My only gripe is that I can only seem to find them in spools of 10.

Delivery was very quick, good communication from the seller.

I have been trying to backup all of my old playstation 2 games as they are now becoming very rare.
Copying and burning onto these disks seems to work very well, as long as one records on either 4 speed or 8 speed.
Its definitely worth it to save wear and tear of my original disks.

The lightscribing works well, especially with surething lightscribe software, and the original lightscribe software setting at a darker contrast for a better image.

burning a disk and lightscribing a disk takes a total of around only one hour, which is pretty good if you want to back up your originals.

ive tried many types of disks and these seem to work well for my purposes.

the company i got them from was pretty darn quick to deliver which helps a lot.

id recommend these to anyone!

This is my second purchase of this item and confirms my satisfaction with this good value and quality DVD-R discs.
Verbatim is an already well-established brand for quality and the LightScribe adds that desirable feature for organising discs with professional labelling.

Low price (at sub £4) and very good quality rarely come in a package which is the case for this item. No hesitation in recommending this DVD-R pack.

Bought these to use when sending video or photos to friends abroad (mainly Japan) and so far have found them to be excellent. There is nothing worse than sending a DVD to someone and it either sticks to the packaging or worse, the inside of the DVD drive, that can't happen with these. In spite of the lack of colour choice if you put some thought into the design you can get some very fetching finishes. Will definitely purchase more of these.
