Expert Reviews

Epson Stylus Photo R200 Reviews

Techradar reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R200 and writes;
“As you’d expect, photo printing is what the R200 does best, and using Epson’s own glossy photo paper our test results were superb. The printer managed to recreate both bold, vivid colours and flesh tones in photos. Having said that, however, results were only marginally better than from Canon’s iP4000 printer, which is also faster.”

Expertreviews reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R200 and writes;
“You’d be hard pressed to distinguish between the R200’s output and a traditional photo print, thanks to its 2880x1440dpi maximum resolution and the ability to produce ink droplets as small as 3 picolitres (a picolitre is one trillionth of a litre). Colours are incredibly accurate – not oversaturated, but vibrant nonetheless.”

CNET reviews the Epson Stylus Photo R200 and writes;
“The good: Prints directly onto CDs and DVDs; inexpensive; good photo quality. The bad: Mediocre text quality; slow photo-print speed. The bottom line: The R200 doesn’t produce the best images, but some shutterbugs may be turned on by its unique feature: printing directly onto CDs and DVDs..”

User Opinions

Epson Stylus Photo R200 User Reviews

Excellent, but only if you’re careful
“The Epson PrintCD software is pretty rudimentary, but it works. Just be aware that it isn’t exactly WYSIWYG (for example, the shadows under text look better when printed than they do on the screen, and sometimes the background image looks like it fills the entire disc when it actually leaves a small area uncovered when printed). With a little bit of experimenting when I first got the printer, it was pretty easy to pick up what I could and could not do. “ – by Lowell Prescott

Possibly the BEST CD/DVD printer on the market
“Some people talk about the ink running out quickly, but this has not been my case. I’ was able to print more than 60 full-faced, full-colored disks before the included inks started to give the “low” warning. I have also used it with less expensive generic inks and it’s performing beautifuly!.. I would recommend everyone to use this printer with the new “permanent” printable disks from Primera with “AquaGuard”. This means that your printed disks will not run or bleed if they come in contact with water, sweat or even if submerged. “ – by C. Rodriguez

“A friend of mine, who’s a photographer, highly recommended it, so I purchased the Epson Stylus Photo R200 and I love it. I print a lot of CD and DVD labels. It prints directly on the CD’s and that’s awesome. The print quality is spectacular and the ink last forever. With the included program on the install disc, you can make really fun shaped lettering and styles. It really spices up your labels. I print a lot of labels and documents using black ink and appreciate the fact that I can replace just one ink cartridge if/when needed.” – by LKW

Great Printer
“The printer has excellent photo quality. Very nice. Tiger Direct is where you want to purchase your ink cartridges. They are a lot cheaper than anywhere else. “ – by pawparkluva

“the colors ARE VERY vibrant and bright if you know what you are doing. the ability to use white printable discs and silver is awesome. people having problems with the loading tray need to realize THE TRAY COMES OUT THE BACK of the printer, so if it’s sitting up against the wall, the tray hits the wall and causes an error. simply pull the printer a couple inches away from the wall. i would definately recommend epson cd printers.” – by Ben Booker

Great Prints-Easy to use
“This printer has great photo quality. Easy to use. I print a lot of pictures. I am happy with the amount of ink that it uses. Not bad. The one thing I am not happy with is the paper feed. I have had it for 1 year and everything has worked great. Of course when I am trying to get christmas gifts done, it decides that it thinks it has a paper jam. It did not have a paper jam,nor has the cd/dvd printer part ever been used.” – by kelbug

Great Printer for the Money
“I had this printer for over a year now and it prints excellent. If you print a lot of pictures you will be buying ink pretty often becuase the cartridges are pretty small. It also has an awesome CD/DVD printing tray, I just buy the blank white DVD’s and print right to them. It is very compact and easy to use.” – by Joseph T. Goodman II

Great Little Machine
“I only use the printer for printing photos (which is what it’s for)- and don’t use the CD print tray. I guess maybe the fact that I only use it for photo printing and not text- is why I’ve gotten by with only having to replace two cartridges. I also use only Epson Premium Glossy photo paper- yes it’s more expensive but the quality is awesome. Apparently it has something to do with how the paper absorbs the Epson ink- which is why other photo paper doesn’t work as well- and why generic ink also doesn’t offer the same quality. “ – by Bradleyo
