Excerpt: This could be a Mac problem, but getting it set up for use with a Macbook Pro was a pain. I had to talk to customer support a few times, install new software, etc and I'd always have to close out the program and re-start it to run a new disc. It also would reject about a quarter of the discs it would try and burn. The discs that I got to burn and print looked really good and played correctly, just needed a smoother process.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Incompatible With My System, Inconsistent Burns
Excerpt: Our church uses the Bravo SE Disc Publisher to produce audio CD's of our sermons for our shutins and to produce rehearsal CD's for our worship ministry. In the future we hope to add video capability to our sanctuary, and then our Bravo SE will help us produce DVD's of sermons.The Bravo SE helps me save time and effort. I set up my files to burn, add a label, and hit GO. Then, while the Bravo SE burns and prints my discs, I can work on other things.
Pros: Clean Printing, Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Quiet, Set And Forget
Excerpt: I had the pleasure of using a Primera disc publisher back in the mid-2000's on a project I was working on in Malawi, Africa. In my line of work, prefection is a must both technical and artistically. That said, when I needed a device that could mass-produce DVD's with professional disc labels, I researched what machines were available and chose the new Primera Bravo II publisher with the belief it was the best.
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Runs Cool
Excerpt: We purchased the Bravo SE to use in our church media center. We were looking for an automated label printer for cd's and dvd's and when we found we could purchase a duplicator/printer for close to the same price, we made the choice. We use it primarily to pre-print labels on cd's that will be duplicated immediately following our services. It was easy to set up and creating labels for printing was a snap.
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Quiet
Excerpt: My unit burns disks well and prints as well as my epson ink jet printers. The one problem i ran into was that the picker had trouble picking up disks from the bin, printer, and recorder. I had to experiment with different calibration values to get it to pick consistently. now everythings works fine, and it is so nice to not have to burn disks one at a time and print them one at a time.
Excerpt: Using in our church to mass copy and print music, videos, sermons, etc. Saving 50% of time then copying DVDs and then printing as a second process. The Bravo SE is dependable and we can queue the job and walk away. Almost always processing after hours. We need to review how much ink we are using.
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Quiet, Runs Cool
Excerpt: A little trouble getting it started on the Mac, but once it was running and installed it outputs disks great. One recommendation to anyone using a lot of external devices, connect this directly to the computer, don't connect to a USB hub or use USB extension cables. Copies DVDs at 20 a batch, or more if you periodically check on the progress, emptying the output bin and refilling the input bin. If the duplicator runs out of DVDs, it will pause and wait for more.
