How are the Ritek DVD-Rs for printing with the Epson printers? I've read reviews saying they are too smooth and the ink doesn't stick, but then I've read other reviews saying this is not the case anymore. Can I print to these with my Epson printer?
There was a problem with the surface of the white inkjet printable Riteks a few months ago in that they were printing with a frosted look. I guess the surface was too shiny in a batch that went out, but it seems to have been corrected. I have an Epson 300 and while I was disappointed in the beginning I think I have the best settings now so the printed discs look much better.
Laurence. I used to have a Epson 900 but now I have the R200. I found that I can now set the printing density to -1 and still get very good looking prints (better looking that what I used to get on the 900) onto the Ritek media.
What printer do you have?
The printing surface of the Riteks I have found to be much better than other types - which is one of the reasons now that I stick to Riteks.
I am curious, these disks look like they have a large area in the center that can't be printed on. Although I like the Riteks I have printed on in the past, I don't like having a 1.5 inch hole in my disk graphic. How large is the non-printable area in the center?
I don't like the hole in the center either, but I like the compatibility of the Ritek G04 and that comes first. Burn at 1x - 2x ...no faster. Make sure ID is G04 when you buy them. (Supermediastore will sell you the right ones).
I also sell DVDs with no label at all and concentrate on the jacket design instead. That is a really good option. In the Hub I sometimes write very tiny identifying numbers or letters with a fine Sharpie, but I print neatly.
