    I am currently using TY 16x Watershield DVD-Rs for projects for
    clients however as many have stated before, they are very prone to
    finger prints and the like. I am wondering if there are any other
    brands that are just as reliable and print durable but are not as bad
    on finger prints, glossy or matt.

    Thanks

    The users I know on the Sony Vegas forums love this brand and I've
    never heard anyone complaining about finger prints.
    Do you have any links to discussions about this problem?

    And here's a reply from a friend who recently started using them.

    If you do a dark blue disk and press your finger on it . . . yes.
    Under normal conditions - I have not really noticed. Normal being a
    white label with text and a coloured logo.
    Our demo however is blue and a deep colour so there is a bit of
    "fingerprint crap" if you put it there.

    This subject came up recently in another thread which prompted me to
    check these out with my media supplier. They are TWICE the price of
    what I currently pay for premium Taiyo Yuden, silver surface ink jet
    printable. I have NEVER had a complaint from a customer about ink
    smearing on our labels and I have duplicated and distributed thousands
    of these discs.

    For me, I can't justify the price difference.
