Summary: it was got to replace another exact printer which i had plenty of ink and didn't want to go to waste, good thing i already had the disc with installation n drivers and the tray to use for printing on disc as it didn't come with it but overall it was a great deal
Summary: My 220 printer broke down I needed another...searched it out and purchased one...the only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that the inks in it were not OEM Epson ink and the description didn;t say that.
Summary: People thought I was crazy when I said I would put my CD into my color printer and make a label for it. It's nice to be able to just put the "printable CD" into the tray and feed it in the front of the printer. It does a nice job as it moves freely out the back of the printer and then when it's done comes out the front. Just be sure to have a little room for your printer so it's not up against the wall or some object. It also works great for color printing and photos.
Summary: I own two of these and have used three different units in Windows and Mac environments. Use them to do quick indy CDs, generally 50-200 at a time. While I don't think anything in this price range can touch these cheap Epsons, it is fair to warn others that the CD printing is not as fool-proof as many reviewers indicate. Many jams, it's a little temperamental, too. So if you're getting this to print a lot of CDs, keep in mind that it'll probably need some babysitting.
Summary: I have a little business where I scan slides and prints and create DVD slideshows and convert VHS home movies to DVD, etc. I needed a printer that could print direct to the DVD/CD so I could get away from applying those annoying labels. I found my R220 online for $70(refurbished), and have been using it for a couple of years with just one problem: the DVD tray has to be "helped" into the printer with just a little pressure or it sometimes mis-feeds.
Summary: Excellent printer. I print 15 to 20 cd and dvds each week. Not a fast printer but excellent quality image. Insert the cd tray and let it go. Work on another job while it prints. Only negative is the tray sometime hangs up. Easy to eject and restart. I would buy it again when this one dies.
Summary: i like the quality & the CD printing capibilites; these have been discontinued & that is why i purchased this item! these are getting hard to find; i have 4 of them right now. what i don't like about them (& this is true of ALL the cheaper printers) is that they don't last very long. these are probably designed for light to moderate home computer type printing, & i do alot of printing.....more along the lines of "pro" or heavy printing amounts.
Summary: If you want to print directly to CD/DVD's Epson is your only choice as far as mainstream printers. I had the R200 for about a year when it just stopped printing. Epson tech support said I should send it in for repair but it wasn't worth it to me so I found a new R220 for $50. It's pretty much the same as the R200 although it loads the tray much faster. The ink, though rather expensive lasts quite a while if you are only printing disc labels like I do.
