I'm looking at updating the presentation of the dvds I give to my clients.

Currently, they are produced with those (woeful?) Avery-style dvd/cd labels - they look good on the Sony silver face dvds we use, but think that we can do better.

We rather like the idea of Lightscribe, as my logo is text based and images aren't included on the labels. Another printer that can handle cd/dvd printing is not an option right now, but possible for the future.

Appreciate all thoughts on the pros and cons from users and non-users.

Epson makes a CD/DVD printer for $150.00, it does not get much better or cheaper than that. All you need are blank white discs

The Epson printers do a much better job than Lightscribe.

Lightscribe is a good cheap option for the burner compared to the printer but the media is more expensive than the white disks. You'll be spending quite a bit more in the long run.

I know all about trying to stay cheap but I would suggest the printer too. Plus if you decide to pick a new logo later or pick a shot of the model to print on the disk... it will give you more flexibility.

Lightscribe is essentially a dead technology at this point. Nobody is building the drives anymore so you can plan on media running out in the next year or two. Of course by then physical media will have such a limited market because streaming will be (has replaced) replacing it.
