Had problems with LightScribe at first (prints way too light) but was directed to the LightScribe website for the "Contrast Utility" by a review. Now it works much better. I haven't had any coaster yet, even with the cheap DVD+R media I'm using. :)

LightScribe active under bundled Nero 18.104.22.168 but refuse to write LightScribe on 52x Light Scribe CD from TDK. I was using bundled LightScribe software coming with drive.

Very good device. Burns DVD+-RW & DVD-RAM.
Lightscribe don't work in 7.* Nero.
Lightscribe works in special disc label's editor sotware, that's available here: http://www.lightscribe.com/files/setup.zip

Fast, quiet, good. Writes every formats and every brand of media. Needs under XP a very new version of Nero (with my old I get an "invalid block address" - error message while burning a DVD), and bundled with was only Nero Express with limited functions.
It was very difficult to get the "Lightscribe" - functionality in the "new" Nero. If you got the same problem, search the web for "Ls_hsi.exe" (or ask me).
Costs around 75 Euros in Germany.
