I am just about ready to buy a Light Scribe capable dual layer DVD burner and wanted feedback from you guys!
The only model available in stores around here is the HP 640i, I think Benq also makes one, but this is one case where I actually feel better about HP, their drives seem to be very reliable, and I have read too many horror stories about the Benq drives being dead prematurely. Even if the HP drive is made by Benq, I think an RMA through HP is probably easier than through Benq…dunno
My wife works at Wally World so I can get the HP model for $90, but I have one dilemma, dual layer DVD’s, I can’t seem to find light scribe dual layer DVD’s anywhere. I realize they are going to be more expensive, but I can’t find anyone selling them! And unless I am mistaken, I would need them in order to backup my movie DVD’s on one disc, correct?
My other question is about the light scribe software. Will it let you scan and burn any image, or only those that come with the program? And in general is it easy to use? I do know it takes a “month-of-sundays” to burn detailed images, and I don’t mind, this drive is solely for archiving of my movies for backup purposes, so I have plenty of time.
I read through the 14 or so topics here that turned up in the search for “light scribe” and didn’t see too much, hope someone knows a little more than me to help me decide which to get and where the heck to get those dual layer light scribe discs…oh, and one other thing
I am planning on buying a new DVD player very soon for my ent system, and I was wondering if anyone has suggestions as far as which burning format-R/+R is generally easiest to playback.
