DVD duplication: Aleratec printer ???

Does anyone have any experience with this DVD printer?

Aleratec Robojet Autoprinter 100:

Aleratec | RoboJet AutoPrinter 100 | 360101 | B&H Photo Video

I was researching the best way to duplicate DVDs, and it appers that the consensus is to use two separate devices:

1. Duplicator tower
2. DVD surface printer

For # 2, there are as many negative as positive reviews of Bravo printers, so I'm unsure. I also used to own older version of Primera II and was unimpressed at the time with both reliability and print quality.

Any ideas for automated DVD face printer? I do mainly small runs, 3 to 30 in quantity, but it really gets crazy jumping around the PCs and feeding blanks everywhere. (I currently use PC's built-in DVD recorder and Dymo DiscPainter as surface printer.)

That looks identical to the rebadged HP printer I got with my Verity Systems Duplicator.

Don't buy it unless you can get a sample disc printed by it. On your sample, ensure you have solid colour elements as well as photographic elements.

The HP printer is very bad at printing solid blocks of blue..

Did you get the Aleratec RoboJet AutoPrinter or a Bravo or...? I'm looking for a new autoprinter and can't find any further feedback on this Aleratec unit, but it's in my pricerange.
