Judging by the authors comments, he was able to test an HP 640i.

Hopefully we'll see some more in depth testing, as well as some pictures, soon.

And, what about the price of "compatable" discs? :cry: My guess is that these discs will make an inkjet printer look like a not-so-bad investment.
I also can't help wondering what happens if you leave such a labeled disc in the heat or light, will it all turn one color? Will a nice hot DVD player burn it?

Perhaps, but forget about the label, what about your data?!?!? Optical disc ARE light and heat sensitive, common sense says that you keep em cool and dark. :o

Ian,
Thanks for staying on top of LightScribe. =D>
I for one, think it has a lot of potential.

BTW, How come no beer Emoticons like Anantech?

Yes, that would be nice. HP's PR people have talked to us about it, but their communication skills are lacking. Taking WEEKS to reply back to emails is not acceptable. Oh well.. hopefully BenQ will come through.
