Anyone have experience with this printer? Store near me has a good sale and I was thinking of picking one up to make a few box sets (printing covers, and printing on discs etc.). Any insight on quality and such?

Ask the store for a demo of the disc printing mate - they can only say no 😉

If it’s an independent store they may offer a disc printing service - or could be persuaded to print a few discs off for you for a few $$$a on the side…
 

There are a few youtube videos re this printer (and similar printers in the Canon ‘disc print’ range) - they may be of some help; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAt4PvR2IGQ : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_5vXwWpmGk :

Seems very similar still to my 15 year old Epson R300 printer (still going strong today) - could be worth sifting through the Amazon reviews for mentions of the quality of the disc printing for useful info - though to be honest… my 15 year old printer’s discs from back in the days are still holding up and look decent (with no disc issues) - so I imagine the more modern printers (and a decent brand like Canon) should do quite well at it too 😃
 

There are some useful printing threads on various issues which can be found in the ‘A few useful links’ section of the Index thread pinned at the top of this section, here - An Index Thread (and more) for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art… - and also some more printing threads just below that.

Good luck with it man.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Thanks a lot man. I asked but I got the “If we do a test like that then we can’t sell it as new.”, explanation. Apparently it can clog up if it isn’t used fairly often. I dug and dug for reviews of the disc portion but only found one vague comment, but the reviews of the other functions are largely positive. Either way I took the plunge so I guess we will find out tomorrow! I’ll be sure to post a few pictures of the print quality for future interest.
