treewind Tech: Need advice on Printer (27) RE: Tech: Need advice on Printer 22 Nov 13

I have an Epson Photo R200 which I use solely for printing CDs.

I'm hesitant to recommend it; it was just about the only existing printer that would do CDs when I bought it.

It's very slow, and each CD print is preceded by an interminable period of grunting, shuffling and inexplicable long silences during which you keep wondering if it's died. Sometimes that's followed by a pop up window on your PC telling you something mysterious has gone wrong, and you have to go through a tedious sequence of fiddling with the CD tray, taking it out and putting it back in and then waiting for it to do its endless grunt-and-shuffle sequence again before it (maybe) starts printing.

Also its CD print software is Windows only, which is inconvenient for me.

When it's behaving itself and I've cleaned the rollers, it can print quite nicely.
