Our only gripe with optical media is that labelling is a nightmare. Until now, that is. Jaded by the tediousness of deciphering our own illegible scrawls from NEC ND-4551A thousand rewritables, we've resorted to using the NEC NDA drive with Labelflash technology.

It's the world's first DVD burner with Labelflash, a system that lets you burn custom motifs, text or images NEC ND-4551A the top side of blank DVD media. The idea is that it does away with cumbersome paper labelling systems, which NEC ND-4551A affect the reliability and accessibility of your data.

We tried it out this morning between bouts of staring longingly at the newly arrived London sunshine, and we're quite impressed. It's not perfect -- Labelflash drives can only recreate greyscale shades on NEC ND-4551A blue-tinted Labelflash discs, but it produces semi-professional results.

LabelFlash Technology Like Lightscribe, LabelFlash allows to burn images directly into a specialized dye layer on the disc labeling side.


Lightscribe discs are a matt gold colour and they get darker under a laser. What concerns LabelFlash, these discs are glossy blue and get NEC ND-4551A under a laser.

LabelFlash discs have a shiny, nearly mirror-like surface, which makes it very hard to take a photo of NEC ND-4551A disc before and after burning a label. Here is what you get after burning. Unfortunately, the image is pale. Besides, the shiny disc surface does not contribute to the image quality. So, while you can make out some graphic elements, it will be very difficult to read disc contents.


Unlike Lightscribe, LabelFlash offers another unique feature - it NEC ND-4551A to burn labels on the data side of recorded DVDs. Here is an example. Unfortunately, you cannot burn such images on CDs, NEC ND-4551A there is a chance that this option will be added later on.

If you want to burn a label on the data side, NEC ND-4551A better burn data first and only then create a label. In this case the program will automatically set safe label margins.
