Hi,

Has anyone experience with or comments on the Casio disk title thermal printers: CW-50 and CW-100?
I'm thinking of buying one or the other, but hope you folks can steer me straight on my choice.

Thanks,
George

Thanks , I did a search on them . Think I might pick one up . It would have to be the 100 though . It has mixed reviews . But for the price you can't go wrong . Any way you look at it . It is better than Inkjet . You won't have to worry about it getting wet or worry about the label thickness of Inkjet .

You chould always use blank CD's or DVD's . Meaning not screened . Or the white ones . You can buy them everywhere in bulk .

Paul, I'm having trouble understanding what your point was in how you said it - should one buy white CDs if the Casio is being used or avoid the white ones? What is a screened CD? A blank CD is one that has nothing written on the top at all of any kind? No guide lines for instance? I guess the Casio website probably has instructions on what CDs to buy?

Most all your basic blank cd's that are say Sony are silk screened . You don't want that when printing your own . They make the ones for screening in blank as in no screening at all or a white screen to bring out the color of your printing . I would probably prefer the white ones . But I'm sure both would be fine .

Hi,

The thing that bothers me about the Casio thermal printers is that it seems you're limited to a printing area of 5/8' x 2 15/16'. I understand, however, that on the CW-100 you can print above and below the hole in the CD which would double your print area.

You are right . That is why I would only get the 100 . All the reviews for the 50 were 2 1/2 out of 5 stars and the 100 was 4 out of 5 . I'm getting the 100 .

Hello,

I have been thinking about buying an external LightScribe-featured CD/DVD burner (instead of a CD color printer like the Casios). Has anyone had a chance to try one themselves and offer any feedback?

Here's a link to LightScribe info for those who may not be familiar with it yet:

Seems like nice technology . But the cd's are a buck a piece . How much is the setup ? I wonder with ink and printers what the price difference would be ? I'm going to check into this .

Thanks for the tip on Lightscribe.
I checked out it out at Office Max yesterday. I was favorably impressed. It seems the stand-alone burner is about $150 and the installed-in-the-computer burner is about $110.

I have the TDK badged version of the Casio printer, was given to me as a gift. It works superbly. Technically it will print on any CD or DVD I have tried, however the most pleasing results are on smooth (non embossed CDs) and plain colour. The embossed CDs cause the lettering to have ridges where the embossing occurs. The print is by means of a single colour thermal Tape. The tapres are available in various colours for about 5 Pounds a time. Basically I'm glad to have the little printer.

I have the Casio's big brother - the Inscripta printer from Primera. It does full disk printing using a big thermal ribbon. It rocks. Great fast print, lowest price per disk.

The LightScribe looks interesting - but the media is way expensive. The way I burn disks I'd go broke. I run a small studio and often have orders for 100-500 from clients.

The best thermal media I've found is the Taiyo Yuden silver thermal. Clean burns, extremely low error rate.

I bought a Pavilion PC that included the Lightscribe feature.
Haven't used it because of the media thing. I have hundreds of screened Maxell blank CDs, but no plain, and when I saw the price.... Yikes!!!
I'm used to paying about 35 centc a CD.
I may give it a try yet though.
I'm also gonna give the Casio a look.
