View Full Version : Lightscribe Technology

HP has the new(er?) Lightscribe technology out. Heres a basic breakdown for those who don't know what it is: Burn an HP Lightscribe CD-R(W)/DVD-R(W+- whatever) with the Lightscribe Burner, then flip it over and burn a sepia-ish image of whatever you want onto the top as kind of an etched cover without the stick-on label.

Anyone else heard of this? What do you think: Is it rad or trash? As far as price goes, the burner itself is $80ish, and the cds are $1/cd, so not too bad considering you get perma-labels on them.

80ish you say is that in Euros or something? 80 bux for a dvd burner, o wait is it an internal one? That would sound about right. It would be cool I guess but you would need special discs and if they cost about a dollar each thats 50 bux for 50 discs, I think it can get rather expensive.

i read about that the other week in the news. I thought it was quite innovative, good for people who can't be bothered with labels but i think the colour is limited to a 2 tone design.

Yeah it is only a 2 tone burn for the labels, but it still looks pretty sweet. I wonder what a company logo would look like after it was embossed in photoshop and then burnt onto the cd?

What has that got to do with this thread topic?

sounds cool. with my lame handwriting and disapearing permanent marker pen, i could use one of these. the CDs will probably be like all the other ones, eventually, you'll be able to buy huge spindles of wholesalers of the net if you want
