      Good price for a good printer, and printing on CDs is a bonus. Except Epson is a sleezebag of a company. Don't try to turn on or off your printer too many times or you'll find that it runs out of ink faster than a keg at an irish drinking party.

      If you are willing to spend 60 bucks more and invest in a continuous ink system, this is an awesome deals. I have the 380 version and have probably printed 4, 500 prints on this plus DVDs as well and still going strong.

      #7, the people whom bought this obviously are not pros, and probably won't do a crap load of prints anyway so it's a good deal.

      The RX680 looks like a decent deal too at $80.

      I bought the R200 a few years ago since it too had the disc printing option.
      We don't use it constantly, but it goes through ink like air (like #9 states).
      I've removed & shaken many an "empty" cartridge to hear quite of bit of ink still sloshing around.

      Seriously considering a replacement that's more economical with ink.

      I had the R200 and it routinely locks out half full cartridges, (doesn't let you print using them even though they still have a LOT of ink in them)

      I got a 3rd party program to trick the printer into using up all the ink, which it did, but then the printer did die from trying to print with an empty cartridge. can't win.

      I bought this printer a couple days ago off Ben's link, it's ugly, but it's cheap. (just like ur mum)

      I buy cheap disposable printers rather than buying replacement cartridges. Not very eco-friently but definately financially sound.

      Don't blame people that take advantage of the ass-backwards business model that color printers use that make replacing the cartridges much more expensive than buying a new printer with 1/2 filled cartridges

      #15: two options: buy the cheaper compatible carts (usually less than $5 each color), or else go whole-hog with a CIS setup. You can also get refillable carts for about $35 a set.
      Which one is best for you depends entirely on how much you print. If you're taking 3 or more months to run out a color, you'd be better off to get the standard replacement carts as needed, instead of running the risk of the CIS system drying up.

      I agree - Canon IP1700 printer has been WAY MORE ECONOMICAL than my Epson CX7000F. Both are entry level printers.

      IF YOU BUY EPSON, be sure to never turn it off. They do GUZZLE ink on the power on cycle.

      I have a small piece of electrical tape hiding the power LED so that it is always on, un-noticed (bad for coal burning power, but good for my student wallet).

      So #16, this sounds like a continuation of the old Lexmark printer deals that were free all the time.

      I have the Epson R200, the older version of this, and I can vouch for the really good quality of the CD/DVD prints. I use the white hub-printable Taiyo's and it's impressive.

      I can also vouch for the mysterious ink drainage, too. I use it occasionally.

      I also heard buying a new one is cheaper than buying replacement ink cartridges. With these prices that appears to be the case...!
