Summary: Recieved this item broke. Unfortunatly I didn't hook it up for a month after I recieved it. Disgusted with the seller. Got screwed and I will never order anything on amazon that isn't through amazon.
Summary: I received the printer and eventually installed it to replace my old R320. Once set up I could not get the black and yellow ink to charge up. The printer was useless. Bad deal. I won't buy from this vendor anymore.
Excerpt: My Epson Stylus Photo R 320 takes my love of photography to a whole new level! Sure anybody can enjoy taking pictures, but how many people love to print them as well? With my Epson Stylus I can print photos quickly and easily and I don’t even …
Summary: Marginal color quality at best. Takes 6 cartridges which are expensive and don't last long. Limped along until shutting itself down with automated message stating "internal parts have reached service life" (whatever that means) rendering the printer inoperative. It is now a boat anchor.
After 2 months, I have to agree with the naysayers

Summary: At first this bugger printed great. I was happy. I bought six new cartridges for it around May 5th, 2007. I printed 6 CD/DVD's and maybe 10-15 pages (usually on economy or draft settings to save ink) and then it sat from about May 10th until about June 12th.
Quality Printer - Good Prints, Fast, Not as Pricy As Expected

Summary: I've owned epsons before and they all used ink fast and it was expensive. The overall experience i have with epsons has been fantastic though so I am willing to pay extra. This printer has been great so far. The photos are excellent and the disk printing is neat but i've really only played with it.
Summary: I bought this printer to use mainly for printing on CDs and DVDs. This is one of the few choices but I am very happy with it. When used with Verbatim White Injet Printable DVDs the results are outstanding. However, when used with Verbatim Silver Inkjet Printable CDs the results are mediocre.
Pros: Print quality is excellent. Has a wide variety of features. Prints on CD/DVDs. Price with current $50 rebate is a steal.
Summary: I have the same problems with the Epson R300 that some of you are reporting with the R320 -- in fact that's why I'm reading the reviews, to see whether the DVD printing has improved. Apparently not. But the theory I'm developing is that the CD/DVD tray itself wears out.
