cheap printer that is cheap to run and prints on dvds?

can anyone recommend a cheap printer that doesnt cost a bomb and will be cheap to run?

wont be using it much apart from maybe printing on my own dvdr discs

any advice appreciated

it has to be either the epson r300 or canon i865, their both around 140


both cost about 25 for a new set of inks but as their indervidula carts they last longer, not sure how long as i dont have one

look here for inks

I wouldnt get an epson R300, i got one to replace my photo 900 because of peeps on here praising them anyhow i sold it after 4 days after the ink tanks were only half full after doing only 14 movies (Disc & Covers) so lets just say you get around 30+ from an ink change, I get around that with my photo 900 and an ink change is a fifth of the price of the R300, As you can see i kept my 900 and got shot of the R300, id rather save 20 on an ink change than save 40 seconds on a printed document.

good feedback geobon, I've been looking into both these printers but cant find a photo 900 for love nor money now they've been deleted

Savings on your cartridges
I read you your posting and agree that the r300 is a good choice. I dont know which you have chosen but I have found that the cheapest place to get the cartridges from is:


They charge just 8 per set and they last for ages. If you want even better deals sign up to their newsletter. I have found that they often do my printers cartridges (r200 which are the same as the r300 cartridges) for less than 1 each.

Hope this is of help.
