We have a demo unit and it works very well. My recommendation to RecordexUSA was to go with the open HP cartridges instead of proprietary version. Considering the HP engine is used in just about every pro CD printer the Recordex StudioJet is an excellent buy. The watershield comments are true with any 2 ink printer. The silver inkjet version is a little worse in this regard. There are a couple of 4 ink printers out now, but only one standalone I know of (the Panther by Verity) Epson, Microboards and R-Quest have publishers that incorporate a 4 ink system. There are two versions of the Recordex StudioJet, a 50 disc version you mentioned and a 100 disc version. I like the 50 disc more (no hanging bins off the table).

[QUOTE=David40;2260161]I’d like to draw on the experiences of others who have purchased automated CD/DVD inkjet printers to find opinions on what make and model is the most reliable, and least expensive to purchase, operate, and maintain?
I am considering a Recordex StudioJet 50 printer which is sold under different names and uses standard HP ink cartridges. Has anyone had any experience with this model?
Thanks for any enlightenment on the subject. [/QUOTE]
