Spoke with 2 different friends today who each own Epson 'Print to CD' printers (the R300 and R800). They both have owned theirs for about 8 months. Interestingly enough, they both told me that for the first 3 months, both 'print to paper' & 'print to CD' worked flawlessly producing impressive results, but after 4 months of moderately-heavy paper printing use,their printers began experiencing paper jamms, or the paper not feeding at all. On the other hand, they report that the 'print to CD' feature continues to perform flawlessly & deliver excellent output. They've subsequently discovered that these Epson printer models only include a SINGLE paper roller feeder, of which may be contributing to the problem. They also subsequently learned that Canon Printers utilize 2 paper feed rollers instead of one. All the review reports I've read, as well as from people I know that own Canon brand photo printers, seem to verify (to me) that Canon is the way to go these days in Photo Printers. Unfortunately, unless I'm missing something, checking on Canon USA's site, I don't see one which includes "Print To CD" (yet): http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=ProductCatIndexAct&fcategoryid=103
Come on Canon, when are you gonna to finally release a desktop inkjet photo printer which includes 'print to CD?'
Note: Epson has subsequently released the R320 which I hope fares better re paper feeding: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=47915738
