Yes, removing most labels will destroy check media. Then again, the
labels are not designed to be removable. But unless you are labeling
rewritable media, that should not be a problem. The label will add
some protection to cheap media. On the other hand, they do not work
well with slot-type drives. The edge of the label starts to peal off
and stick after a number of uses. (Automotive CD players are
definitely hard on them!)
If anything, I would think the extra weight would be a benefit once
the drive has spun up. The flywheel affect would tend to hold the
speed more constant. It might make the disk a little slower to spin
up, but I have not noticed it. But the faster the drive, the more
critical it is to get the label centered.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
