I myself have a cannon mp500 .... cannon i560s and a epson r220 and they
all print great !!!.......the epson r220 is really great on cd/dvd disks...the ink
cartridge prices are little high going from $12.50 to $15.00 us dollars but if
watch your print settings it will last longer.....can't go wrong with cannon or

my wife uses a hp 1350 coz it's a 3 in 1, flexible for her needs
i've even started using matte paper for covers instead of shiny/glossy stuff & get just as gud a result for a lot cheaper just wondering if any1 does the same, or have any worthwhile ideas to share to fellow members

However just got (today) and Epson R220 with Continous Inking System (£105 with 600ml of Ink !!).
Foto's are absolutely stunning from my Canon Ixus 50.
And the printing CD label is a walk-in-the park -- no more label alignment issues or misfeeds or any of that crap ! You get a simple app that let's you add picture's, I then add the text (circular), etc and off it goes..
Oh yeh...I applied blank paper label first to the CD and let it print on that.
Next test is to print directly onto a printable CD.
It took me about 15 minutes to set-up the rig. I have pictures of how to install this rig:
This is just after inserting the cartridge:

The Epson printer and supplied software is user friendly indeed.
Prints real nice discs. Some printable discs look better than others. Verbatim and Ritek were the best ones I've tried so far.
There are a couple of links in this thread for aftermarket ink carts, I recently bought 5 full sets for 83.25 (pretty sure that's the amount) plus about 5.00 shipping (US)
Screw the genuine Epson ink prices!

All printers are giving the same printing quality but the 720c has by far the cheapest print/page cost.
Soft is Nero Cover Designer, easy to use and friendly.
Photoshop CS2 is used to scan and improve covers if needeed for an even more perfect job. Also used to create custom covers.

Never had one problem with the R200 but the R300 has been nothing but bother from only printing half a cover then stopping to blocked heads all the time
Love the results these printers give thoug and the fact i can buy a set of 6 carts for only £4.99 also goes in there favour
Just wondered what other people use
I Use an R300 and never had anyproblems apart from the paper feed...but that is an easily cured problem

Best part: Dirt cheap ink cartridges. I get 3 sets at a time for $55. That's the price of 1 set at local stores like walmart/bestbuy/staples.
They are out of arizona,USA and it is quality ink:
R-200/220/300/320/and 340 are fantastic printers. It all depends on what fancy bells and whistles you want on your printer. They basically have the same specs,just the r300 series gets into card readers and view screens.
