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: 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.
Excerpt: I took it out of the box, set it up and started producing CD's immediately for a friend. There were only 2 things that I considered small setbacks - 1. Should have ordered more ink cartridges, one included only printed about 95 discs and 2. it really needs a dedicated computer, you cannot run another printer - needed when I ran out of ink, and/or check e-mail at the same time.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Professional Quality
Pros: print quality print durability (using TuffCoat media) reliability (no errors or bad discs after 9 months / 400 discs) easy to use (but I'm an engineer, so who knows...) low cost (compared to the alternatives)
Cons: black & multi-color cartridge (instead of 3 separate color cartridges)
