Inkjet Printable discs vs Labels

Postby seaegg on Thu Dec 08, 2005 2:20 pm

Is it just my imagination or does the R200 use less ink printing DVDs as opposed to printing the same image on a label? Anyone else found that or am I deluding myself? I was thinking about buying IJP DVDs from now on as opposed to lacquer discs from now on which is why I'm asking.

You should never be putting printed labels on top of silver laquer DVDRs anyways.... it really screws up their balance.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

I know I stopped doing that a long time ago but some of my customers insist on labels.

I just tried out an Epson R320 and I don't know how you would tell. It's not like after printing one label, the ink tanks were drained enough to show any change on the status page.
