Best-looking inkjet printable dvd-r?

After experimenting with two different kinds of printable DVDs, I decided I want something better.

I like dvds with a small non-printable area around the hub. Even though they are all called hub-printable, I believe some have larger non-printable areas than others. The ones I bought (linkyo?) have a 24mm diameter of non-printable area. Is there something smaller?

In contrast, I found that being able to print all the way to the outside edge of the disc is *not* as attractive as the ones with a ~1.5mm outside margin where a litte bit of the rainbow color reflective surface can be seen.

In short, I'm looking for a printable dvd-r that can be printed all the way to the hub at the center, and only up to about 1.5mm to the outside edge.

Could someone suggest some brands?

I prefer Verbatim myself. The white is more brilliant and you don't see the ring through the disk before printing.

On TY DVD and CDR, I use a template that's 23mm inside and 118mm outside which fits the printable area perfectly.

Verbatim states the diameters on their spindles. TY does not, but according to a German supplier, they are 24 mm inside. I usually print at 23 mm, even though that is cutting it close.
