I recommend the Epson Stylus Photo R320. It will print directly onto printable CDs/DVDs and has excellent print quality (I recommend printing cover artwork onto glossy photo paper with the highest print settings, it looks more professional). It's got some other features which I've never used, like image processing/editing directly from digital cameras. Check it out. The only downside I've run into is that it doesn't have a scanner built in, but you can buy standalone scanners for around $40. The Epson Stylus printer is priced about $140 or so (I've seen it for $125 as well), but you can usually get a rebate which brings the price down to about $100, which is how much I paid for mine at Office Max.

What brand of paper do you use?

I haven't used that many different brands but what I've got right now is Royal Brites High Gloss Photo Paper. I think it's a relatively cheap brand, but it seems to work well.

I also have the Epson R2000, it can also print directly on the disc and the ink last relatively long time. I printed around 25 DVD Covers before I was starting to run out of ink. The price was really good as I paid like 120$CAD and even got some glossy paper for free.
