I was just about to buy this on Newegg for my new computer:

LG Black DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136152

$25 free shipping.

But then I ran into this:

LG Black DVD Burner with Lightscribe
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136153

$24 free shipping. (At least for the next 14 hours).

Now I wasn't going to worry about lightscribe at all, but if its the same price (or even a dollar cheaper) should I just go with it? Really, what I want to know is will the lightscribe one preform to all the standards of the normal one, or does Lightscribe slow it down/make it break sooner/summon demons into my computer? Cause I figure if it will work exactly the same I might as well get it just in case I use it someday. But if there's a chance of lower performance (or demons) I'll just skip it. Thanks.

But can I use normal media on it? So just treat it 100% like theres no lightscribe until I actually want to buy the disks for it? Or does it need lightscribe disks to even work?

So in other words I can save a dollar and have the lightscribe option if I ever choose to use it without slowing down the DVD drive or causing it to not last as long.

So yes, I should get the lightscribe one.
