Summary: When you read many reviews, you can easily see that the "one-star" ratings are usually by people who don't read the instructions, or possibly just can't understand them. I've read all of the one-star ratings on this R-200 now and I totally agree with them. No I'm not a printer expert, but I've owned a lot of different brands of printers and this is by far the worst, though not the most expensive.
Summary: This printer lasted 8 years of home use, printing photos, CDs/DVDs, holiday cards, labels, and just regular paper stuff. It rarely if ever jammed, the printer utility let me know plenty of time in advance when to order ink. It did not need head cleaning very often, basically it worked great and lasted a long time. I always used genuine Epson inks and never had a problem. My Epson printers have always been quality, this was another example.
Summary: I have had this printer for years and i paid bout $100 brand new not sure why this price is so high as its the same model as mine. Anyway its an awesome printer for DVDS and CDS which is the only thing i use it for as i have my color laser for other stuff.
Summary: The Epson R200 printer showed up as it was scheduled. The box had been beat up pretty badly by the USPS, but no apparant damage to the printer. Unit was a little more used looking than advertised and all the extra ink was "off-brand", but it all worked OK and I'm satified with my purchase and the seller.
Summary: I purchased this printer when it first came out. The big draw for me was CD/DVD printer capability. It still works great, the text is crisp and it does a decent job on photos. The Epson Artisan 50 is it's replacement...at $149.00. I think I will keep my trusty R200. I have never had to call customer service unlike my lousy Lexmark crap. When it stops working I will give it a proper burial.
Summary: Didn't like it- tray had to be replaced, flukey performance, slow, noisy, quirky. Paired with my macs it never was really dependable. Once one ink ran out I had to replace them all. Would not work on just the black cartridge. I feel like i'm in a alternate universe here, I never really had good luck with this printer- switched to an Epson Artisan 725 all in one for less than the ink for the R200- love it, this is a quiet , well behaved machine.
Summary: I had this printer before, but it was stolen. I liked the idea of labeling my disks, so I decided to buy another. Great product, have had a lot of fun with it. Works great! Would recommend again.
Summary: The printer was purchased as a replacement for a R200 that I have had for years. The R200 is used mostly for printing on DVDs. It is easy to use and very affordable when it comes to ink usage. And it also has a relatively small foot print !
Great printer that has impressed me from the day I got my first Espon R200

Summary: Great printer, I got this printer because I owned one previously, and knew the great quality prints it produces. It will be used as a mobile printer for wife's photography business and is much easier to transport then our Epson 810 which produces the same quality prints. This was a great buy! And I would definitely recommend, if you can a working one, get it!
