    Only two brands print to optical media. Canon & Epson. If you get a Canon and you live in the US you'll have to hack the printer to get it to print and buy a CD tray off of eBay(~$10). I have a Canon Pixma MP830 and it is by far the best all-in-one and even just printer I've ever used. Prints well to optical media now that I set the Firmware to Euro and not US.

    I would definitely recommend the Canon Pixma series. Well built, cheap ink, full of options, great Mac drivers and produces great results.

    I completely agree! Go with a Canon Pixma. They are really good!

    Another vote for the Canon Pixma MP520 Series here, couldn't get my old HP all-in-one to work with Leopard but this one works like a dream :)

    Canon Pixma for sure! Economical and good quality printing.
