Yeah i agree.Although the silver ones do look pretty good,some of the colours don't reproduce correctly on the disc so if you print a label that includes a picture it sometimes looks kinda strange.

not tried the silver on the dvds yet white for me looks better although have done some silver with my cds and have a very professional look to them maybe worth a go on the dvds .

I've used both and found the silver present a more professional looking product. As for the time required for the ink to dry, I've found that varies depending on the type of printer you use. I used to use Epson printers and found that it took quite a while for the ink to dry, especially if I was not using Epson ink. I have now switched to Canon printers because the life span of the Epson printers was so short. One advantage I found with the switch was that the Canon printer includes a drying cycle with the print, so that when the disc comes out of the printer the ink is already dry (even when using generic cartridges.) This produces a crisp, professional looking disc using less ink than with the Epson printer, dries faster, and doesn't have the "cartoonish" quality of a white disc.

What Canon are you using? When I tried Canon, the software was terrible and the printing process was really awkward. I'd be interested to try it again if you could recommend a good one. Does it have a built-in tray, or do you have to use a slide-in tray. If you were using non-epson cartridges in your Epson, that would explain your short life span. I learned that the hard way. I'm still using an old Artisan 725 and a Stylus 280 which I've had for years with no issues at all.
