I don’t know R270 but r200 CD printing lasts longer than 3 minutes. I own a R800, printing at highest quality is about 2 minutes, a Canon ip 4200 is much more faster but the quality is much more poor. The R800 is the best CD printer available but it’s not only a CD-printer, it’s a photo printer. If you like Verbatim Photo Printables, R800 isn’t first choice, they need a long long time for drying, they do not like pigmented ink. Wioth all other media you may receive excellent results.
