Well, I can personally tell you that it's not totally bad, the labeling is actually slower than I expected. Took 19 minutes to do the label on the below CD and only 3 minutes to burn the 650mbs of pictures from our storage drive to backup CDR of the kiddos.
This HP model: CDRW: 40x24x40x, DVD+-RW: 16x4x16x was $99 + tax. The quality on the labeling is awesome. Much better than I expected, however this image doesn't really contrast the actual quality from the digital cam. Shows up lighter than it actually is. It's pretty nifty, but prolly will be much easier to write with less time if it didn't have all the contrasting colors and pixels from a more plain image.
