Summary: Fantastic photo prints. I've purchased re-manuf ink from abcink.com and the results are the same as factory ink. I've had this printer since 2005 without any problems. High quality prints form photos or text. The capability to print on inkjet printable CD's & DVD's makes this a great value. I've printed 1000's of discs. I bought a 2nd one as a backup in the even the original ever breaks. Looks lie that'll be a long time from now.
Summary: I bought this used R 300 printer because I have been using one just like it for over 6 years. I had plenty of extra ink cartridges on hand and have always appreciated the quality of print on my CD's & DVD's.. It gets very heavy use each day, and keeps on ticking.
Summary: Best budget printer out there for DVD printing. The ink is expensive However buying a continuous ink system online solves that. Love the printer. Too bad their not being made anymore. That's why I buy them online at ebay.
This is a great printer for value and quality at a fraction of the cost.

Summary: My wife researched this printer years ago for me as the best for price and quality. I liked it so much I bought another one used and they both still work. I found the production a little slow at 2 - 2 1/2 min a CD for my eager needs. The more production the better. More printers right. I also jumped into the R320 for the experience and I applaud that printer as well. I own two of each and am pleased with both or you could say all four.
Summary: The most appealing feature of the Epson Stylus® Photo R300 InkJet Printer is that it can print directly to printable cd-r/dvd-r media. This is actually the 2nd one I've owned, the first one I bought new at $285 when the model was first released. The first one I owned and used for 5+ years. I guess I printed 1000 or more dvd/cd with it. Great printer. If direct printing to printable dvd-r/cd-r is what you're looking for look no more.
Summary: The Epson r300 printers rating don't do them justice! Lots of users are not famaliar with all their great features! By far, it is one of the Epson 300 series which outpreforms most of the other printers hands down! Granted, there are some quips that any product may have. This one has very few that I have noticed! Installed a CISS unit (Continuous ink system supply), on this one for My Daughter.
Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo R300 is the most versatile photo printer in a reasonable price range that Epson has produced. The ability to use SD cards, usb port to connect directly to a media and/or memory card without using a computer is a plus. Additionally, good quality photographs are produced, making this a gem. Without a doubt, it is a disappointment that Epson has stopped making this or its "new and improved" counterpart. Fortuneately, e-bay is here!
