I didn't mean to imply that epson printers were bad overall, infact I think your best bet in a printer is either a canon or epson. I prefer canon but only because of avalability of high quality (photograpic quality with near perfect color match to oem) refill ink, and not having to mess with chip resetting. Thats not even an advantage to canon anymore either because the new model canon printers have chipped ink cartriges too (mine dont though). There are advantages to epson and advantages to canon, but they are the best two printer brands out there though.
Specifically with cd printing though, epsons have more feed problems though canons have problems too. Some people have no problems what so ever, but plenty have problems on both, moreso with epson. I get this from reading numerious threads on hacking US canon printers to cd print and reports from many users. Both non-US canon users and epson users helped with this on several diffrent forums (the best thread I have found was on steves digicams though). There were many coments on how the printers worked for cd printing, and it wasn't a quality of printing issue, but rather a malfunction of the tray issue and only some people experienced it (maybe quality control on the trays?).
I'm actually considering getting an epson for cd printing as I didn't get my US canon working with a homemade tray. My only problem, 100$ for a printer, 7$ ea for refillable ink cartriges, 60$ for epson refill ink, maybe a chip reseter (not sure if the refill friendly carts need one, maybe not). The alternative is to pay 50-60$ for 50 cents worth of plastic parts from a nom US model for the canon, or keep trying to make a tray that works (epson trays can actually be modded to work with canons, but it seems prices on replacment epson trays jumped way up when everyone started hacking thier canons with them).
Fyi, with the feed problems with epsons, several people said that a new tray fixed the problem. If it's under waranty, insist on a replacment tray.
