An excellent, reliable product.

I see a good deal of ranting going on in the reviews of this cartridge and its printer. I have years of experience with Primera printers and I've been very impressed with them. I've had the Bravo SE for about a year and a half and tonight its cartridge finally ran out. Clearly, I'm not a heavy user. Before getting this printer, we had two models of Primera printers at my work and we all just made a point of not doing full-coverage or single color printing. Sure, when you want that edge-to-edge look, you can get it, but it's going to cost you dearly in terms of cost per disc. So, with a little creativity, you can achieve a very professional looking printed DVD at a nominal cost of maybe 20 to 30-cents/disc. That's not bad. During my 18 months of using this single cartridge, I'd estimate I printed 800 discs. Most have been light-coverage but have looked great. Perhaps 20 were multi-color, full-coverage discs. So, with a little forethought, you can get lots of mileage out of these cartridges. As for the printer, I'm a huge fan. It just does its job and does so consistently and reliably. So, take if from a regular user of the Bravo SE printer, this is a gem of a machine and the expensive cartridges are worth every penny -- IF you plan ahead and take advantage of the more-sparing use of colors during your label design process. Full-coverage printing is overrated in my opinion. Make use of the white real estate on those printable DVDs (I use Verbatim 95079 4.7 GB up to 16x DataLifePlusWhite Inkjet PrintableHub) and have some fun! It's rather amazing that one can achieve such a professional looking result with the help of printers like this. (And, no, I don't have a stake in the company. I'm just a regular guy like you who appreciates a great product when he sees one.)
