I know that epson makes a printer that can "print" onto a cd, in color too. The quality is way better than lightscribe. But lightscribe is ok. I just make my own labels through nero...

Yeah, but they use ink. The Lightscribe "burns" the CD

There you go:


The Epson R200


The epson R300

Yeah, that's the one I was talking about. You could say the printer "burns" on image onto the disc through it's ingenious method of "printing" onto the disc, which is analogous to lightscribe, when you surreptitiously analyze the two.

No idea. A look at newegg or any site like that, even epson, would tell you though.

Yeha, but light scribe isn't that cheap either, although cheaper than that printer, the discs you have to buy are expensive too... plus the quality doesn't match up to that epson.
