hello, forumreaders, good time of day to you!
i am (as i've written countless times before) using DVD+Rs and DLs for backing up (mostly movies, which my little ones seem to ruin with their day-to-day life). i have gone through a slew of horrible and fake discs (i unfortunately learned on MY OWN mistakes, since then i had no one to help me.) since then i have found and bought Verbatim DL http://www.supermediastore.com/verbatim-double-layer-dvd-plus-r-white-inkjet-printable-95123.html (which are printer hub printable). i have several questions...
1st: why do people here praise these Verbatim DLs as this page http://www.supermediastore.com/what-dvd-media-is-best.html seems to suggest that TYs are the best?
2nd: right now, i DO NOT have a printer capable of hub printing (and reading mostly horrific reviews am not anxious to own one); nor do i have a lightscribe drive (i believe so although i bought it long ago and am not sure of its capabilities - plz don't kick me).
3rd: i am quite happy with my HP PSC 1210 printer (i scan a lot) and use it to print (YES) sticky labels for CDs/DVDs. after buying the printable DVDs, i got a little interested on the subject and decided to research it. (as i've said most reviews are horrible! and some tell me that replacement cartridges cost MORE than a new printer WITH cartridges included!!!)
4th: the Verbatim printable DVDs have no lines on them, so this makes writing with a SHARPIE a difficult ordeal. wher r the NOT HUB PRINTABLE Verbatim DLs? can you please point me towards them?
5th: bigger picture. should i or should i not get into this whole mess with the hub-capable printers? if not, what is another avenue of thought here?
p.s. i have had some spectacular DVD degredation problems (and now i believe they were not only caused by crappy knock-offs and fakes, but also these sticky labels that poo-pooed the discs.)
any suggestions are welcome.
p.p.s. are these discs MIS??? http://www.supermediastore.com/verbatim-95484-8x-dvd-plus-r-dl-double-layer.html and how do they differ from http://www.supermediastore.com/verbatim-95310-dvd-plus-r-double-layer-media-1-pack.html ???
thnk u for answering!
