[QUOTE=Yarrr;2207544]Does anybody else use the Flexwriter? I purchased the Discmakers Elite 2 years ago which includes the Amtren Flexwriter, and I have to be honest, it’s terrible. The robot itself is great, I never have any problems with it - only with the printer. The color is terrible, it uses a tri-color HP cartridge and when it runs low on certain colors, it doesn’t warn you, it just keeps printing discs without that color. (I did a job with it this weekend where the disc had some green foliage images on it, the yellow ran out, so the foliage ended up blue. Not happy.) Even worse, it misses the discs constantly. The image is perpetually left of center.
Definitely not worth the 800 dollars for the printer itself. It’s about impossible to get any support on the thing, too.
I’m sticking with my Epson RX680 from now on. Sure, it needs to be babysat, and it does take 2 minutes per disc, but the results are flawless every single time using TY watershield media.[/QUOTE]
We used the Flexwriter Elite purchase from Disc Makers for about 3 years and had basically the same problems with the printer. We switched to an Epson PP100 about a year ago and have been very satisfied with its performance. I had the printer for the Flexwriter rebuilt shortly before we took it off line and it was working pretty good we just needed something more reliable. If someone out there would like to take it off my hands for parts or a backup unit I wouldn’t turn down a reasonable offer.
