When I saw the demo online for the Discpainter though, it seemed all my answers had been answered. In short, it does everything extremely well that the Epson did poorly and does an acceptable job at what the Espon did best.
What It Gets Right over an Epson R Series:
* Small footprint, with no accessories or trays to keep track of
* Very quite operation
* Fast print speeds (Epson prints faster once it gets going, but when you add it up, it's slower)
* Ink dries quickly (no more 24 hour long drying times!)
* Doesn't randomly flip out and refuse to work because you looked at it the wrong way
What It Doesn't Get Right over an Epson R Series:
* Image quality.Read more ›
The software included with the Discpainter is satisfactory, but in my opinion is inferior to SmileOnMyMac's Disclabel. Setup is easy, the printer's physical footprint is very small, and print times are outstanding even at highest quality. That last part is where this printer has failed me badly. I tried both matte and glossy white Verbatim printable discs at a number of different settings and at no time did the print quality come close to what the Epsons are capable of. Mine already has clogged jets as it is printing blank circular lines through photos on discs, even after using the printer utility's cleaning option. I gave this printer 2 stars for it's size, ease of use, and print speed. The quality is probably fine for the average home user, but for the price I would strongly recommend looking at some of the far cheaper inkjet printers that have this capability. To anyone wanting to use it in a professional capacity, I would say look at a sample first, but I think the print quality alone will make them steer clear of the Discpainter. Sorry Dymo, I love my Labelwriter, but not the Discpainter.
Usage: Painted 300 CDs for my own wedding last month over a period of 2 weeks. I'm not a "creative professional" - just a professional who likes to pretend to be creative from time to time.
Startup: Simple, intuitive and fast. I was painting in minutes. (though it took days for me to decide what art to use)
Software: Easy to use interface - I'd be confident that even my parents (who still have trouble with email attachments) could paint with this device
Print quality/ Durability: Outstanding. So good, in fact, that we changed our design to use the CD envelopes with the clear window so we could show off the art. We received lots of positive feedback. No damage or fading observed yet.
Price: Worth the investment. The value I received far outweighed the total cost (device, consumables, errors and time). It's not cheap, not expensive. Device price was fine for me as I used it fairly heavily and Discpainter's consumables are about on par with other inks and toners. Can't say it was free, but all in all a good buy, at least for me.
I've struggled extensively over the years with CD/DVD labels that are difficult to apply precisely or that end up bubbling immediately or after a few months. Aesthetics are critical in the marketing collateral I distribute for my company and clients.
But equally (if not more) important, are the friends and family that I am starting to share customized photo CD/DVDs. I opened the Dymo DiscPrinter and began printing within 5 minutes on glossy, waterproof CDs that come with the unit. The result: beautiful, thoughtful gifts for the holidays with memories that will last (well, as long as the media does). At the very least, decades from now when the data is unrecoverable, they would also make beautiful coasters. ;)
But until then, this is the easiest, dedicated printer for my CD/DVD needs. As a CD/DVD printer, it's obviously much smaller than standard inkjets with a CD/DVD tray -- so I can actually bring it to my parents for the holidays to continue printing out new CDs/DVDs on the road. Of course it could be a little smaller to be truly portable, but I can't complain as its size and quality strike the right balance. It also prints really fast and entertains at the same time. There certainly are some limitations as other users have noted, e.g.Read more ›
