Several weeks ago, Dede and I had a chance to see an Epson Photo Stylus R200 printer in action at our favorite adult candy store, Best Buy. I had been wanting one of these and seeing it in person convinced us to take the plunge. Our 4-year old HP Inkjet 722 was out of ink and the 2 replacement ink cartridges were going to run more than half the price of a whole new – and far better quality – printer.
For about $85, this printer is an awesome value! It’s a no-frills (no LCD, no memory card reader slots, no complicated setup) printer with 6 ink cartridges for very nice photo quality output and features borderless 3×5, 4×5, and 8×10 prints. Even more exciting for me is that it allows you to print directly onto a CD or DVD with the use of a special caddy.
If you’re in the market for a new printer, this is certainly worth a look! Here are a few links to info and reviews on the Epson Photo Stylus R200.
Here’s a photo of the printer and several custom CDs I’ve done:
