Summary: Like a lot of people, I used to print labels, but problems like not sticking 100% or air bubbles or peeling at the edges happen. I still have some labels left so I am using a 2" wide wallpaper roller to smooth them down onto the disk so it sticks a whole lot better.
Summary: I bought one of these at Wal-Mart on clearence for 60 bux. WOW holy @#$% what a deal. I printed a cd befor I did anything else. AWSOME. I made my cd and was HAPPY AS well you know. then I started producing for my buddies who were also in bands. I made maybe 250 cd's.
Beware - Must fill ALL cartridges to print just BLACK and WHITE!!!

Summary: While the finished product may look nice off the printer, BEWARE, this printer will cost you A LOT of money to operate. I needed to quickly print a document in BLACK and WHITE, however, the printer alerted me that it was out of ink.
Summary: First, reviewer S Shelton I have answers for this individual's points raised. I guess this individual has never used a printer before: 1. The price of EPSON replacement ink cartridges can be found for $15 (for all 5 cartridges) online at say rima or newegg 2.
Summary: Like many of the other reviewers, I have thoroughly tested the Epson R200 and I am as happy as I was when I first bought it about one year ago! Some people talk about the ink running out quickly, but this has not been my case.
Summary: I purchased this printer specifically for the CD/DVD printing feature. Epson has a jem in the R series of printers, as the only alternative is a $1,000+ CD/DVD duplication system. When you need photo quality CDs/DVDs and peel off lables won't do, you will not be dissapointed with this printer.
Summary: This is the 3rd Epson printer that I've owned over the years. The only Epson that worked fairly well was the Epson 1270. I then purchase an Epson CX5400 printer/scanner. When I had to replace the black ink, the black ink no longer worked.
Summary: I'm a writer and graphic artist so I've gone through a LOT of printers. I decided to try for one that prints on DVDs. That's the only reason I bought this, honestly. BUT... The printer has six cartridges. Up until this printer I've been using those HP 3-color-in-one cartridges.
Summary: This gets six stars for CD/DVD printing. I purchased it for that alone. You can easilly print 100-200 CD's on one set of ink. By then the rollers may wear and the printer will have a problem ejecting the disc. No problem just pull it out a little while it is ejecting.
