Summary: This printer is still being used on my mothers PC, she is printing great quality papers and photos, even though its not high def, it comes close to my Epson Artisan 810 which is a 6 cartridge HD printer. Ohhhh the epson R200, memories... Memories...
Pros: - I bought this printer back in 2005, I must have printed over 1000 movies - The color quality was superb for photos and papers. - easy setup - operated smooth, on and on and on... - EPSON
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.
Summary: I've had this printer for two years, and mine has printed literally thousands of CDs and DVDs (somewhere around 5000 by my estimate). In its price range, this is simply the best disc printer available -- by far. It also does great on glossy and heavy matte paper of all brands.
Pros: I use the printer exclusively to print on DVD-R media which it does extremely well. The prints have all been perfect quality wise, and I seem to do ok on ink usage too. The CD creator software is basic but free and easy to use, and I get good results.
Cons: The CD tray often needs a little nudge when the printer begins loading it. I have seen this complaint more than once about this particular printer. This is only a small gripe though, and the only reason I didn't rate it a "5".
Summary: A fine printer for the money, that I use for almost all my printing needs, the only thing I dont print on it are Those photos that I want to look 100% and last forever. for that I use my kodak 1400 pro dye sub, that sadly to say newegg does not carry
Pros: newegg got it to me fast! and as allways at a great price. The r200 prints very good photos but even better it prints on printable cd's and dvd's. Very nice! Another nice feature is each each ink is in its own tank
Cons: darn thing is like an earthquake when it feeds paper to print, and think the ink tanks have chips in them to try to keep you from refilling them, but my brother has a chip resetter that has worked for him on other epsons :)
Summary: Ink issues drive me crazy! This is my second Epson (the C80 and it's huge black ink cartridge being my first) so I've learned a few things about their printers. NEVER shut them down except during storms.
Excerpt: This photo printer produces proffesional quality pictures that definitely surpass work done by a local photo phinishing lab! The only drawback I see is: the quality is indeed amazing, but that same pro becomes a con when you realize just how much expensive ink a great picture can …
