I want to buy a printer to use exclusively for CD/DVD printing. I already own a Canon IP4500, but I’m not happy with the photo results (other than that it is the best printer…well…until the printhead starts having problems). So I am turning to Epson R280, because it has 6 colors and better color matching.
I want to ask, what is the speed of CD printing for Epson R280? The Canon prints in about 1 minute, 50 CDs per hour and I heard Epson and HP are much slower. Can any of you tell me the exact time? Is it twice slower? Or more like three times slower?
This is an issue for me, as I thing even Canon speed is slow. It takes a lot of time to align the tray (about 30 sec). If Canon optimizes that and the photo quality it will be the best CD printer for production.
