However I still have doubt that it actually will sell. Because of the to high prices.(Double of normal media ) But maybe there's a market after all MPO GOLD media is also expensive and so are the black FUJI PHOTO cd-r's.
Guess we will see how it goes over time.
I agree, I think it's a dud. There will be SOME interest generated initially, because it's cool... but then the media costs will start coming into focus for more people, and the people with inkjet printers will start laughing at the people spending lot's and LOT'S of money on lightscribe media... and then it will simply die. That's my guess at least.
Maxell looks like they are about to join the lightscribe market however, I'm told I should receive more details in the next week or so, as to what their plans are.
