Interesting, I wonder where the original article referred to was, this is just getting SILLY!
http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/02/14/labelflash_vs_lightscribe_dvd/ - another article
Of course, it would be better to compare Labelflash, Lightscribe and Inkjet printable - I know which I’d choose.
It also seems astonshing that they would create another -R versus +R situation, the world barely needed one monochrome labelling system, never mind two incompatible ones.
Labelflash is skating on very much thinner ice than Lightscribe, since the cross-vendor Lightscribe has a significant head start, though I’d say that Inkjet printable has finshed the race already and is standing on the winner’s podium.
I can see Labelflash dying out, with Lightscribe as the “VHS” to Labelflashes “Betamax”, as it seems unlikely that it will be solved (as in +/-R) by the majority of drives going “dual”. Of course, which one, both or neither goes through to the next round, on Blue-ray vs. HD-DVD, is another issue.
