    HI guys, I need a recommendation.

    We're looking for a CD printer at work, either a dedicated CD printer or an inkjet with CD printing abilities. It must be colour, but speed is more important than print quality. Assuming that price is not an obstacle, has anyone got any good ideas?

    We currently use an Epson R300, it prints quite well but it's got a few quirks (caused by damage) and it takes at least a minute from pressing print to the CD coming out. Part of that is, I believe, caused by a bottle neck in the USB to Ethernet converter it's plugged into so a printer with dedicated Ethernet would be ideal.

    I was thinking along the lines of these, although the more expensive CD duplicators are not necessary as it's only printing we require. I would like to hear what anyone else thinks.

    I wouldn't touch epsons, they are a nightmare, sure they're great when they're working, but you run out of ink and attempt to use a compatible cartridge instead of an original epson then the fun begins, unless you get a continuous ink system.

    Yeah we have that problem Wizard. Also, it's a little battered as well and you have to hold the CD tray while the rollers grab it. We're looking at a couple of cheapo replacements that will do us for a year and then reassess the situation. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.:D
