JVC (Taiyo Yuden) Watershield (Silver)I must say the quality is extremely good. The print sinks into the disc and underneath the surface. If you tilt the cds against the light you can see the disc surface sort of shimmer with the light but the print is not 'light' or transparent. The print quality is also very good both with graphics and text which come out very crisp and detailed. As mentioned the discs are full surface printable up to the centre (only a very very slight white margin on the outer side. The ink dries very quickly and no smudging occurs. The only slight downside is that with a Canon PIXMA MG8150 you are left with slight roller marks on the surface of the cd caused by the the printer. This does not affect the printed material in any way (no smudges etc) and I will have to see whether it can be removed with a cloth. However, this is caused by the printer and not due to the cds since I thik the thickness of the these cds is the same as with other normal cds. If the cds were however actually thicker than normals, then these marks may be due to the increased thickness... however I will have to check. But nonetheless these cds will give you a very professional product and definately the best alternative I found to silk screening.

Taiyo YudenThese are outstanding if you want to do some quality Demo's of your group. The printing surface allows for excellent high quality printing on an inkjet printer like an Epson Artisan which allows for direct printing on the CD. No tacky CD labels. And they are water resistant! You spend more but they are worth it if you want quality/

Stunning Store-Bought LookBlows away regular ink jet CDRs. Print comes out almost glossy and really pops compared to regular white ink jet CDRs. They are not shinny silver, which I was worried about having used silver thermal CDRs. They are a pretty light blue color. A drop of water looks like a blemish rather than the ink running and smearing like a regular white ink jet CDR. I used an Epson Artisan 50 printer that cost $99.
