    Hi!

    Anyone knows a good (reliable) website that sells and ships DVD to Canada?
    I only buy lightscribe DVD's.

    Thanks

    why lightscribe? to be quite honest (I owned one for awhile), I was really disappointed with the technology and the time that it took to generate a good image (having to run it through 2-3x).

    personally, I like using taiyo yuden water shield printable dvd-r's with my epson rx580 (a 99usd printer prints directly onto the surface of the cd/dvd's and yields some really stunning results).

    but if you're hell-bent dead set on a lightscribe burner, you might try www.newegg.com, however I would stay away from the hp models. I had nothing but problems with mine (the tray would keep ejecting for no apparent reason, even after putting in media and closing it).

    Apparently it's really slow as well.

    I already own both a lightscribe burner and a printer that can print on DVD's
    I just use both depending on what "finish" I'm looking for.

    I tough that the printing took a lot of ink!!

    My lightscribe labels takes about 20min ro print, you find that long??

    I'm pretty used to wait since I'm still stuck with a low-speed dial-up internet connection [​IMG]
