Well after seeing loads of people complain about their epson cd printer trays going bust etc, i sent them an email asking epson if they had fixed the problem on their latest printers. I bought an epson R340 and it turns out that it might just not be any better off than say the r220. This is what I asked them:
“I would like to know whether the problems that I heard about Epson cd printer trays is still occuring in the epson photo printers? i have just bought an epson R340 and am a bit worried because I heard that the cd tray feeder would have problems after approximatley 200 cd’s have been printed, Is the problem still there or has it been fixed?”
and this is what i got:
“In reply to your query regarding the CD tray, please be advised that the primary function of the printer is a photo printer. It has the added function of CD printing, this is for archival purposes and not the main intention of the printers use. Due to the nature of the CD printing system wear to the tray will occur hence this item is seen as a consumable.”
Has anyone with an epson photo/cd printer gone past the 200 cd mark without any problems? Discuss.
