My first batch of printable CDR's was Memorex which had a very smooth matte finish printable surface that I liked. My next purchase, which I didn't like, was some HP printables that had a rough texture that almost felt like a paper label. The Memorex were by Ritek and the HP by CMC. From what I gather here, the Ritek isn't looked kindly on as far as long-term quality. Any suggestions of smooth surface printables that are high(er) quality media? Can somebody confirm what I read elsewhere that the TY have the rough texture?
