I don’t know how they can expect Lightscribe to compete when it can’t do full colour and takes 20 mins to burn on a whole pic across the cd/dvd. If users aren’t interested then doesn’t matter how cheap they make the technology. HP should concentrate on getting the burn times down to a minute which would make lightscribe much more appealing!

Agreed, i have lightscribe but I refuse to buy inkjet printable and waste more money on overpriced ink. I think they will come out with a new spec 3.0 for lightscribe that does full color in the future.

I don’t see full colour really being an option in the near future unless it would require a completely different drive and laser assembly.

I don’t store and display my burnt dvd’s on the wall. I could be wrong?, but I don’t see why all the fuss over the flip side. My sharpie does just fine :wink:
