Hi

I'm looking for a good quality A3+ inkjet that can also print on CD's/DVD's.

Any suggestions?

I have been seriously considering the Epson R800 as the reports Ive read say
it gives outstanding print quality. The only drawback is its A4.

Does anyone know if Epson are likely to do an A3 version?

Thanks for any info.

Ian

The Epson 2100 (Europe) is a good A3 pigment ink photo printer that will
handle CD's but I don't think the USA model 2200 comes with the CD printer
tray.

Epson 2100 (2200 if you're in the US).

I also heard that the 2200 in the US does not include the CD tray, so better
check it out first. The 2100 has both the CD tray and the gray balancer. The
PM4000-PX in Japan has the CD tray but no gray balancer, and I was given to
understand that the 2200 includes neither.

They obviously think that Americans don't print to CD or use B&W ;-)

A very stupid decision for which they have been roundly criticized.

And they should be. I hate it when manufacturers make different
packages for US and Europe, never mind Japan. It's bad enough that
seem to think $1 = £1.

I've read elsewhere that the reason they do this has to do with
patent rights. They supposedly would have to pay royaltees to
somebody in the U.S. if they included their cd printing version
in the U.S. -- and they don't want to, presumably.

This is nearly a "rumor" at this point, so take it in that vein.

I have a friend who has an R300 which prints on CDs. He's bought it
here in Canada. Both the R200 and the R300 do.

they wouldn't have to pay any royalties to include their gray balancer,
though...
