Default I'm an Epson guy. 900

A few months ago I bought the Epson 900 (the one that can print directly on CDs) after my 660 died after years of faithful service. I'm really amazed at the 900's quality. But I don't see any mention of it here. Anybody else using this fun printer?

Interesting to note. I haven't heard much from users about the printer.

Just been trying to find the correct cartridge types for this, it's on sale here in the UK, 1/2 normal price at 75 (US$115).

Most compats are listed for the colour 900 which I assume isn't the correct one, types T003 & T005, should they be the T007 & T009 same as the Photo 1270/1290 models?

Just trying to find out as I could do with a CDR/DVDr printer and this is by far the cheapest option at the moment.

Thanks Joshua, it makes a change for anything to be cheap here in the UK Normal price for the 900 was about 150 (US$275).

Now all I have to do is save up for another trip to Florida so I can get more InkjetGoodies ink for my Canon, a bit of an expensive way to get it but they've stopped shipping to the UK

Actually yes thier is a lawsuit but if you look at it customers are not being charged any more because the ink tank will produce its fully advertised amount of prints. Thier may be ink left in the printer tank but that ink is used to keep the heads from getting bubbles and drying out.

To get back on-topic...the Epson 900 is not common here in the US at all. I live in Oregon and the only store that really carries it and stocks it is the Apple Store inside one of our malls. All the major retailers carried the SP 825/925 and now the R300. They left the pricer photo printers to either HP or Canon or wide-format Epsons. From what I understand though, the SP 900 is pretty common over in the UK. Can anyone over there verify that?
