[QUOTE=CDan;2128176]The SanFran supplier is a good one for trays, it’s a genuine Canon tray. Also comes with a CD full of instructions.
The standard TY silver printable discs are reasonably smudge-proof, but not moisture resistant. So a dry finger won’t smudge it, but a wet one will. The Epson inks are a lot easier to smudge on discs of all types.
It’s hard to argue with a cheap, multi-talented printer like the IP4500. Here’s an open box for less than the ink tanks would cost at retail
Personally, I’d stay away from any printable discs other than TY and Verbatim. The rest may have good printing surfaces, but the media sucks for burn quality and reliability.[/QUOTE]
Nothing personal but I beg to differ. I have printable Maxall MIJ and Maxall CMC and the scans are nice. As far as longevity is concerned I don’t know. I’ve only been burning discs for 11 or so years, though. And, printing for one year or so. Outa a couple three thousand discs or so, I’ve lost a few. I will elaborate if necessary. BUT please, trust me. Another impotent note:) I have only printed on Verbatim, TY, and Maxall. (Oh yeah, and Memorex CD-R’s too. But, they won’t play in my set top DVR. They play in my Sony CD changer though.)
