Is lightscribe technology dead?


If you’ve been paying attention to the DVDRW drive market recently you may have noticed one thing standing out – there are almost no DVD burners available with lightscribe technology anymore. You may say that lightscribe technology is being made obsolete.

Granted, lightscribe was never really a universally adopted technology and while people were interested in buying lightscribe drives, I’m not sure many ever got around to using the etching technology. But the fact that the market on lightscribe drives has all but disappeared so quickly really does stand out.

You will find lightscribe technology on select blu-ray burners and some externals, but that also seems to be on the way out.
