Those white full hub inkjet pritables do have a dull finish to them. Some people use a laquer coating on them to brighten them up. Patricia Nomicks and Krylon are a couple. I am skeptical about using them because I don't want to suffer playback issues.

I've been using Ty-G02 shiny inkjet printables and they look awesome. Kinda like a 3D picture on them.

I also do lightscribe,and the shiny inkjet printable still look better.

Same here Shaka,
but have found they have been repackaged under the Traxdata name, 100 for 17 not a single failure or dye run out of 450 and counting.

I'm currently using Mirror +R printables as my DVD player loves them but is very fussy about others (I've got a 5 year old Goodmans sound surround system which was so expensive then that I feel I've got to get my moneys worth so have never replaced it)

P.s. I still only burn at 2.4x but it's the end result that counts - the quality of playback smile.gif

I myself don't look at the brand of disc but at the dye used on it.
Mcc dye is the best at the moment
this site is a comparison site for all the media type and I use it all the time

Have used "hundreds" of Ritek/Ridata x8 or x16 -R (printable) with no problems burning with either LG or Pioneer writers as long as you keep the firmware updated.
They have been more economical and reliable than most of the more expensive disks I have tried.
Cost at the present time $16 aud per spindle of 50.

I couldnt agree more. You shouldnt be just asking about the print finish, but also the media code, wafter all, whats the point of burning a movie or whatever to disc, for it to be just unreadable 6 months later because the dye has degraded, go for a quality media like Taiyos, they cost more, but they are 100% worth it.

Wouldnt like to try spraying them with anything though....
