  • Lightscribe?

    I know this has been out for years but what i want to know is why it's never really been brought up, it looks like a great piece of kit and I'm thinking of buying a Lightscribe drive, has anyone got one and are they worth it?

    No. Just use a pen instead.

        You could also buy the CD labels and print using a regular printer. Looks much nicer than lightscribe. Only issues I have heard of is with DVDs as they spin faster and the paper can come off

          Our printer is terrible and we never really use it

              I feel that Lightscribe would be a cheaper method, was just wondering if anyone has used it before

                    My ASUS gaming laptop had a Lightscribe drive built in, thought I'd just try it out because it was there.

                    It was easy enough to use, and made some nice looking CD labels. All in sepia colours though unless it's changed since I used it 3 years ago.

                    And the discs are pretty cheap, as are all CDs these days.

                      Thank you for the feedback yeh it's not changed since it's only laser etched. I think ill purchase one and try it out. No harm in trying. Again thank you for the feedback, also if you can remember, about how long did it take to create a label?

                        I assumed they would probably be the same, I don't have any of the discs I did it on though otherwise I'd show you one I made.

                        It's a lot less hassle than a labelling machine, as all you do is flip the disc over. Depends what you're trying to put on it, I tried a detailed picture of mountain biking over the whole face and it didn't take more than a couple of minutes IIRC. But if all you were doing was text then it would probably take seconds with a more modern drive.

                          I have a Lightscribe drive you could have for postage if you're interested.

                          Let me know.
