After much research I decided to get the Epson R300 with the extra colour viewing screen. I have to say after a week of some intensive testing I am extrememly impressed by the results. Initially i tested printing full A4 borderless photos directly from a media card and the results were stunning. One print took about 40 seconds and the colours and details were outstanding. I then tried printing a series of 6x4 photos using the images stored on my Microdrive and again they looked like they had come straight from a photo lab.
Although I could view all my images on the colour screen I connected my camera to the USB port at the front of the printer and sent a picture direct to the printer, again the results were excellent.
I was really looking forward to using the CD printing capability and I wasn't dissapointed. Using the correct CD/DVDs you can created some stunning looking DVDs. The Software that came with the Printer is really basic but quick and easy to use.
The last test I did was text printing on bog standard paper and although the print was fast the text was a little saturated.
I would seriously recommend this printer to anyone wishing to print top quality photos at a very reasonable price and for anyone wanting to print direct on to CD. If you want to print reams of text though - buy a cheap laser, this printer is wasted otherwise.

In reply to Bernard from Sidmouth (hope you get to see this)
and to any other Epson R300 potential and existing users-
Had the R300 since Jan 05
Printing from a computer is superb with the epson drivers supplied. I favour Adobe Photoshop, and the controls from within the print set-up are fantastic, Photoshop is quite expensive, but very good (try WWW.LIMEWIRE.COM before buying it anywhere though!). I use it both on Macintosh and PC.
If you cant get photoshop then you could always put your pics from your pc onto a Zip drive and connect directly to the R300 (it works, I've tested it) or onto a cd and connect via an external cd drive direct. This will give you access to the printer set up controls on the lcd!
I must add however that the best prints are achieved on Epson Premium Glossy paper which isn't cheap, but you can pic up two packs (buy one get one free) of 6 x 4 (50 sheets per pack) for £5.99 from most outlets when on offer.
In my opinion if you've got a printer this good then why print on inferior papers, believe me I've tried them all - that said the best fuji paper gives a good result, which to most people would be more than good enough, I use this when I'm printing images to be framed behind glass (you can get it for £9.99 for 20 sheets of A4 - great value).
Another point - printing direct from memory card/zip/cd gives a truly fantastic result, BUT if your camera is Pictbridge enabled then print direct from there, there are different printing options which give an even better result! (I'm on Cannon Digital ixus 50 and Canon EOS 300d), But to most people printing from card or pc will be more than good enough, and quicker.
Also you dont have to use Epson inks, I pay £2.50 for mine - just as good although maybe they dont last quite as long.

Verified Purchase
Having used 2 HP Printers in the past, the last one of which broke ( a simple plastic peg snapped ), I was looking for a printer with a bit more design and build quality, as well as superior printing. Bought the R300 even though I don't, as yet, have a need for the direct card printing features, and absolutely bowled over by the photo prints. Results are stunning and will match if not beat, most if not all, photo labs. Draft finish for b+w text printing could perhaps be better but then this is a proper photo printer.
Anyone wishing to buy a photo printer, then go for either the Epson R200 or R300 - you will not be dissappointed, trust me, particularly with the £70-80 price tags currently with Amazon. Bought mine from them in January and as usual the service is first class.
WELL DONE EPSON AND WELL DONE AMAZON!

What else can I say? After debating on which photo printer to buy for matter of months, after my HP broke, I decided to take a risk and go for an Epson (been very happy with HP printers for number of years) as I had heard good things and have the Epson 1670 scanner which is also fantastic! Like the scanner, I wasn't disappointed. It looks good, it prints fantastic and is so easy to use!
This printer is so easy to set up (10 minutes from box opening and you are away printing photos!) I have a Sony P12 digital camera, and quality of the print is hard to tell apart from the shops!
Getting the monitor attachment is money well spent, as it allows real ease to ensure you have the right photos selected when you got a couple of hundred photos on your memory stick!! I'd highly recommend it.
The software, although basic, would be easy to use for beginners and allows easy editing of the photos
For this amount of money, the value of this printer is superb!! Treat yourself-you won't be disappointed!

A heavy printer with built in power supply. With windows 2000 installing was simple, but required several reboots.
The photo quality prints are very good. Better results than most consumer internet photo printing services. And quick to. The quality does improve after the first few prints once the ink system is fully charged.
The built in camera media reader is great, no PC required just take the media out of a compatible camera press a few buttons and out comes a print. Though it claims to be compatible with microdrives, the media slot is a tight fit.
CD printing works well on both 12cm and 8cm printable discs using a plastic carrier. However the paper path is still curved which may limit printing onto card.
Don't forget to buy a USB2 lead, one isnt included! Its a new model and the ink isnt easy to find (nearly impossible).
