Hi, Basically Im halfway through printing a load of CDs for my musician friend and my R285 has let me down (I have a thread currently running) and need to buy a similar printer straight away online.

Please can I ask for the best alternative being as I dont think the R285 is available anymore?

PS- To make an obvious point- I need to print CDs/DVDs.

Thank you.

buel,

You could try the new Epson Expression range. I've just got an Epson Expression Photo XP-750, but Epson do Epson Expression Home, Epson Expression Photo & Epson Expression Premium for you to choose from.

One small problem at the moment is that as the range is new it is difficult to get compatible cartridges.

Peter.

The Epson Stylus Photo P50 is the nearest to your R285 that I know of.
