Summary: I purchased the DYMO Discpainter 3 years ago. Once a year, I print (paint?) 75-80 copies of the graduation video I produce. Up until today, I LOVED my little discpainter, but suddenly, and for no reason I can think of, it stopped working correctly. when you put a CD/DVD in to be printed, the mechanism does two things - pulls the CD/DVD back into the printing area, and starts it spinning just like is does inside your computer's CD drive. Today, it stopped spinning.
Summary: I really wanted to like this printer, but it just does not do a good job. The print heads clog 25% of the time I can not get a good print out of it. The images come out wavy. When it does print properly it looks pretty good, but certainly not professional. I really like Dymo products but I have to say stay away from this one. Not up to Dymo's usual level of product development and no software updates.
Summary: I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY HUSBAND AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT AND WE DIDN'T GET AROUND TO INSTALLING IT UNTIL LATE JANUARY. IT'S NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OUR SYSTEM. DYMO'S WEBSITE DOES SAY THAT THEY EXPECT TO HAVE A DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE BY MID MARCH 2010 FOR 64 BIT SYSTEMS. WE'LL WAIT FOR THE UPDATE AND THEN RE-RATE THE PRODUCT WHEN WE CAN ACTUALLY USE IT.
Summary: I am a professional photographer that produces a number of discs each week. I purchased the Discpainter when drivers became available for OS 10.5 on the Mac & I have a Dymo Labelwriter 330 Turbo that has proven very useful. I was hoping to replace my Epson R800 and R1800 which printed nicely when working but were not very reliable.
Summary: I bought this machine because I produce enough DVD's that using paper labels doesn't cut it anymore. I needed something that was able to print on the printable discs. Well, I've got to say it's mostly a disappointment. After trying different adjustments I found a setting that seems to work, Unfortunately, about every third disc, it prints a smeared image that's unreadable. Customer support is slim at best.
Summary: Yes, it's fun to watch. But cleaning the nozzles is cumbersome, doesn't always work, and wastes CDs. And the nozzles clog up after as little as a day or two. The software is ho-hum. The end result is that this printer is not useful when you're only traying to print a CD occasionally. I wish I'd sent mine back when I first got it... it makes a lousy doorstop.
