Does good work.

This machine does really good work, but if I don't use it for a while it takes a while and about 4 CDs to get it working again. Print, purge, print, purge...The other day I was going to print off some CDs for a client and the thing told me all my ink was bad. I fought with it for a week trying to get it to run (shaking the ink cartridges, reseating them, power cycle the machine, trying to print test CDs, etc...) Just wouldn't go. So I spent about 200 bucks for ink. When they came in I turned the machine on and tried one more time to print a test cd and it worked perfectly. Now I have extra ink I don't need right now and -200 in my wallet. Other than the few problems it has it is a great machine and everyone is very pleased with the results. Its not perfect in operation, but it works for us. P.S. make sure you measure the foot print of this thing and the table you want to put it on! I had to run around to find then buy a table (TV entertainment stand) it would fit on. The table must be sturdy as well 'cause this baby ain't playing around when it comes to printing!

2 Lemons in a Row

The first machine didn't work at all on OSX, this second machine had a bad print head and now the drive is in need of replacement. All this after we placed our order less than 2 weeks ago.
