Consumer review by:

Has printed over 8 thousand labels

 

I've had this unit for over four years and it has proved reliable and satisfactory as a label printer (without using the PC software it can print a wide variety of label formats up to 16 lines of small text (37 characters each) on one label. By itself...

Ribbons in five colors, red, blue, green, black and silver ; Prints up to three labels on a blank CD/DVD ; Comes with software for label design - text & graphics including circular arc printing ; Connects to Windows-based computers, has USB cable & PSU

Will not print reliably unless disc is flat (no raised characters etc.) and not coated (eg for ink-jet) ; Some inexpensive discs are significantly warped ; Company recently changed online marketing arm and label ribbons are harder to get

Consumer review by:

Prints no more than half the text, half the time

 

I have tried MANY different disc types, I have found none that the CW-75 will print on consistently.

Looks good

Only prints on half the disc, half the time

Saves Batteries

 

We purchased this after having used the Casio Disk Printer for about a year and finally getting tired of buying batteries. It does what it says - powers the printer.

From grubby to wonderful

 

It's a bit of a learning curve to use this little gem of a disc label printer, but not too steep. Then, when you print your first label, you know that it was worth the effort. An inexpensive machine that turns the mess that was your hand lettered disc...

Great CDDVD labeler for the money.

 

Works good. The ribbon seem to be a bit small for large volumes. This is the only thing that could have been improved. Very easy to use and the fact that you can store you labels make it quick to produce the same label days later.

Best cost saving measure for 2009

 

I recently purchase the Casio CWK-85 Disc Title printer which came with batteries only, the adapter was optional. It was costing me much too much money to keep replacing the 8 batteries that this product contained. I asked my Son to purchase the...

I print loads of labels and spent way too much money buying 8 AA batteries each time to print the disc labels. Now that I have a power adaptor for the cost of 6 packs of batteries and never have to buy another battery again, well worth the investment.
