Have any of you used it? Is it worth it? For those that don't know LightScribe is a feature of some CD/DVD burners that allows you to etch graphics and text onto the coverside of a disc using a special laser. See here for specific details. I've got money to waste on a DVD-RW, so I am considering one with Lightscribe as an extra perk. If anyone has/has used one, can you please tell me: if it's reliable and if it works as well as the manufacturor makes it out to work.

It works if that's what you're asking and it's reasonably reliable. But personally I find it easier just to scrawl the name of the thing on the CD with a marker than to screw around with ' burn flip burn.' Not really worth your money, and more importantly not worth your time.

I guess you should only get it if you burn a lot and like having your dvds with lables... otherwise u can get cheaper ones that are just as good/quiet, but i do have to admit its cool looking ;)

I use my printer for cd/dvd labels... it's got a tray attachment that you stick the disc onto and it prints directly onto it. Looks great with silver printable discs.

All depends on what you're going to do with it really. If you're just gonna do a burn where looks wont matter, youre better off using a sharpie. If you make CD's for a professional purpose on a regular basis, then this might be worth it for you.
