Prints on CD/DVDs, Wastes Expensive Ink

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2007
  • Summary: Seems to be good as a dedicated CD/DVD printer, but rather bulky and expensive to operate for such limited purposes. Definitely not an all-around printer for day-to-day use.
  • Pros: Prints on optical media as advertised, but is a little cumbersome with the shuttle tray and the need to switch a lever between paper or optical media.
  • Cons: Uses expensive inks that run out very quickly. Mine jammed while printing paper which also caused a large amount of black ink to drain, wasting most of a new cartridge.

R260 Photo Printer - Thirsty!

Keri7240, Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: Pros: Prints on CDs/DVDs. Reasonably fast. The Print CD software is easy to use with great results. Works OK with included photo software. Cons: Uses a LOT of EXPENSIVE ink, especially during the cleaning cycle that occurs when turning the printer on.

Not worth the price of the ink

Customer, Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: Didn't wait long enough to by this printer. No reviews were available. If I had known then (when I bought it,) what I know now (it's big, NOISEY, and VERY EXPENSIVE INK), I wouldn't have gotten this model. It's HUGE. Bigger than it needs to be.

Probably the last Epson product I'll buy

Awiz, Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: The one and only pro:Picture quality excellent Lots of cons: Noisy Large size Uses ink up FAST!! Ink expensive $80+ direct from Epson (cheapest source I could find). (You can buy a re-conditioned R260 for $59 shipped free from Epson, ink included -saves you $21, but haven't figured out what to do...

Ink Hog

Bernhardt, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the R260 solely for the CD/DVD print feature to replace an Epson Stylus 300 (with the same feature) that broke. After printing about 6 DVDs half the ink was used up in all 6 cartridges. The Epson 300 was still half full after printing about 3 dozen DVDs.

Good print quality- everything else sucks

M. S. Kubota, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: The good: Prints great on inkjet DVDs (Taiyo Yuden + Verbatim). The bad: Everything else. Takes forever to initialize and will prime the cartridges every chance it gets. I almost don't mind the wa$ted ink... just let me print today! The software sucks so bad.

Getting the tray to work!

Sam, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: Tray rejections with the R-200 is part of the design flaw of the early models. While tech support says that the tray is warped and you need to buy a new one-or two, it usually is just worn.

Disapointing

Bette Lynne Marranco, Amazon
22 August 2007
  • Summary: While Epson printers have outstanding print resuts when used properly, I had a very negative experience when one of mine broke within 3 months of purchase. Epson would not back their product or even give telephone support without a hefty fee.

Nice printing, scandalous ink consumption

Lauren L. Swain, Amazon
1 August 2007
  • Summary: I want to get rid of this thing before it bankrupts me. I think the solution is to have another printer for everyday use and save this for showy DVDs and high-res photos. There is no excuse for the outrageous expense, and inconvenience, of replacing these cartridges constantly.
