Works fantastic. I've done 20,000 discs with a CISS

 

Basically, they're a great machine. I haven't encountered any real issues with mine. I got the machine itself from JPL Displays refurbished, and it works like a charm. I highly recommend this product, and suggest it to be coupled with a continuous...

Great picture resolution (4800 dpi) ; Easy to upgrade drivers, firmware ; Extremely cheap to run using an inking system (I got mine from 'JPL Displays') ; DVD drives are easily replaced ; Easy to use calibration utility

High ink costs without inking system ; Can be problematic using cheap discs

Consumer review by:

Works better than advertised

 

My parents donated 2 of these to the non profit that I work at. The first one had over 60,000 units put thru it before needing to go back for service. It finally just wore out recently after over 100,000 discs printed. Primera could not believe the...

Just works

Has to print 4 color to get true black

Not a great printer

 

If you get a really good fresh ink cartridge, then it prints adequate. Most of the time, even from Primera store, the ink is old or something and the print quality suffers. Print quality not adequate to give to a client. The head is part of the Lexmark...

Robotics seem to work good

Print quality not good all the time

My company owns two of them, and they have been a big headache - Do not purchase.

 

I work at a small DVD fulfillment house. In May of 2006, we bought our first Primera BravoPro. Out of the box, it would not turn on. I followed instructions, switched computers, went back and forth between mac and pc - ocassionally it would magically...

When they work, they do an OK job

One has a power supply problem, the other has a blown drive

Product Specifications

BravoPro is Primera's newest and highest-performance disc auto printer ever. It automatically prints up to 100 CDs or DVDs at a time - all in a compact, attractive unit. With unparalleled durability, dependability and reliability, BravoPro is the best choice for businesses and organizations that demand solid performance and value. The BravoPro printer sets new standards for quality, speed and reliability. BravoPro's high-speed color printing is the fastest you'll find. That's why it is called Afterburner Print Technology (APT). APT uses a print head technology from Lexmark that doubles the width of the print swath. This means that you'll be able to print more discs in less time. APT also has sophisticated firmware control to precisely maintain the outstanding print quality you'd expect from a printer with 4800 dpi print resolution and an industry-leading 3 picoliter droplet size. Primera has even made replacement ink cartridge alignment easy by making the process completely automatic. BravoPro is fast and easy to set up because everything's built-in. Just take it out of the box. Plug in a single high-speed USB 2.0 interface cable. Turn on the power and install one software program. The attractive, transparent hinged cover ensures that the robotic mechanism, drives and recordable media are not accidentally bumped. It also protects against dust, spills and other possible contaminants.
