Which inkjet printer is the best for printing labels directly on a cd/dvd?

My HP is nearing the end of its life and I am looking for a good printer
which will also print directly on a cd/dvd without harming the cd/dvd.

I use the Epson R800. It's brilliant.

I have only used the Canon i865 and found it excellent. It also does very
good photo prints.

How well does the ink adhere to the label over time? I was able to smudge a
label my friend had printed two months beforehand. Anything else one should
do to protect the printed image?

Or do you mean "adhere to the disk"?

I was NOT able to smudge one of the disks I printed about 2
weeks ago on my Epson R300 (Memorex printable disks).
OTOH, they are NOT waterproof.

Some have suggested spraying with clear fixative that they
use on art pieces. I'd be worried about getting overspray
on the bottom (optical) side.

There have been others since but I can vouch for the Epson Stylus Photo 950.
It is superb both for direct disk printing and papers.

My Epson 900 is still going strong for direct disc printing and reasonable
(inkjet) quality photo printing.

No problems so far with smudging and the discs play very well (as long as
the media is decent quality). It is so much better that the label systems
which could cause problems playing and they were hard to get on as well.

I recently bought the Epson Stylus R300 and am quite pleased with the
results and ease of use. Print speeds are decent too.
I understand the Epson R800 uses Ultrachrome inks and is said to give a
slightly glossy finish to the disk prints, making them look even more
brilliant. That model will set you back closer to half a grand. The R300
cost me only $149 and is good enough for my purposes. It's got a lot of
'bang for the buck' as they say. Highly recommended.

And it costs almost that much for a new set of ink cartridges. :-(

The R200 uses the same cartridges and is only $99
