Epson has an automated duplicator printer to be released in 08. Currenty not much info avaialable, I emailed epson and they are still working out the pricing and release date.

The epson disc producer prints and burns up to 100 discs, prints up to 1,000 per set of cartridges and has seperate ink cartridges. It will not be sold as a printer only.

Just bought a primera bravo pro, there is currently a rebate offer of a visa gift card. I have a tower duplicator and did not need one integrated with the printer, will hope for good results and reliability with the primera.

Plan B - 1 x 6 duplicator and 2 printers

Hi all,

Instead of an integrated unit, how about using something like a separate 1 x 6 Pioneer duplicator ($545) and two Canon Pixma iP6700 printers?

The Canon has discrete cartridges and produces great looking DVDs using the TY watershield media. If you live in the United States, you'll need to go on eBay and buy a DVD/CD cartridge holder for the printer (Epson patent problem) as well as push a few buttons in service mode to reprogram the software (plenty of references on the Internet when you buy the DVD carrier). On eBay, search for "Canon CD DVD Printing Tray C Pixma"

While I haven't done any comparative tests, my sense is this configuration is 2-3 times as fast as a dedicated unit at a lower cost. Anyway, something to consider...

Regards, Michael
