Good product, but has quirks.

Summary: I, too, had a problem with the ink smearing on my disks. Finally I figured out that the disk was slipping... er, not keeping up with the spin speed of the machine. I put down a very small piece of doubles-stick tape on the turn table. Problem solved. No more smearing. I have since made about 2,000 disks.
Summary: The Dymo Discpainter, which I am now kind of sad to see has been discontinued, was a rather cool product that was horribly mis-marketed by Dymo. As a starting musician (more of a hobby than anything else), I was attracted to the product for the cool, unique-looking designs you could make.
Prints well, will need some maintenance eventually

Summary: I have been using this unit for about 3 years. Eventually you may find that the prints start to look skewed. This happens because the drive belt that is turning the CD/DVD is starting to stretch. Eventually you will find that the turn table will stop spinning altogether. This is simply means that this belt needs to be replaced. This is a tricky bit of work to do. Firstly, to open the unit, you will have to open the section where the cartridge is located.
Summary: We use the printer to print a wedding photo of our customer's wedding. When it works properly the results are fantastic. We and our customers have been extremely happy. However, after the first few disks the printer started skipping lines, and duplicating text. Finally, the disks would not spin at all leaving a line of thick (and expensive) ink and the disk was ruined. After trashing about 10 disks, tech support gave me a download and it seems to be working again.
Summary: I say good because it was easy to set up, install and use. My only disappointment was that I expected more colorful printing on the disc. Next time I use it I will try a glossy or higher quality blank dvd.? If that works like printing on a glossy label or photo quality paper, then I would change my rating to excellent.
Summary: This device does a great job on both matte and glossy discs. I would have given a 5 star, but the first one ordered was determined to be defective by Dymo. The return was exceptionally smooth and the second one is where I had the great results.
Summary: This printer works as advertised, very good. Easy to install and use. Produces good quality text, graphics and images on disk. Good choice for small runs of CD's or DVD's, pretty painless to print up 30 or 40 full color CD's. The Dymo application is easy to use.
Summary: OK I bought this to make my companies dvd's and cd's that we are sending to customers look better. I do like that it does just that, but the one thing that I have noticed is that it will NOT write on just any disk. You really need to buy disk's that are ink jet ready or printable. I tried this on a disk that was did not say that it is printable, and the ink just came off on my hand. Once you do this one time, you will buy the printable disks.
Summary: I liked this product for it is fast, very fast compared to LightScrapping thing, and it works really as advertised. I only hoped the quality of the print is a little higher, but it is very good though, shouldn't ask for more actually.
