Any printing anecdotes to share? Best price/performance
brand & model?
Friendly advice - forget about ink jet printers and
printable CDRs. Use the Casio thermal printer on
whatever media you've got. Mine has been doing yeoman
duty for about 2 years and 100's of discs.
I do have the CW50, and for what it is have liked it well
enough. But my frustrations with it are these:
- small print areas
- two-pass operation to get top/bottom fields, and the
chance for misalignments. Even if one is off by one a
degree or two when resetting for the other field print
the results looks hokey. Sweating over the perfect
alignment is a bit of a pain.
- low yield, expensive ribbons. And what frosts me here
is that approximately half the ribbon is never used!!
Pull a used one out of the cart sometime, and note the
huge gaps between the printed segments. That's perfectly
good ribbon you can never reclaim, thus effectively
doubling the price of the ribbons.
- monochrome only
It IS a waterproof thermal print and you don't need
special media, but I miss the ability to do "something
more" with the media I hand to clients.
But thanks for the suggestion, Arny.
Sounds like you gave the Casio a heck of a try, and it didn't quite reach
your mark. Fair enough! ;-)
