Casio CW-75 for labeling?

I have about a dozen recorded DVDs I want to label other than using the little adhesive-backed print strips. I used blank plain white side discs so hopefully this unit will print satisfactory on them. I might can find a refurbished unit or buy a new one. There is also a Casio CW-K85 model but the CW-75 looks easier to use.
Have any of you used these to make your titles?

The Casio CW-75

I got it on Ebay and it works OK however the print quality is not what I hoped for. Maybe it was the particular plain white-sided discs I used. I downloaded a list of recommended brands to use so next time I buy blanks, I'll try some of these.

You're much better off getting a printer that supports direct-cd printing. Then you'll be fully unfettered in designing your labels. Right now you can get an Epson R280 for less than $100.

As for stick-on labels, I'd avoid them for anything you really care about. They tend to significantly degrade the life of your disc, especially the thicker glossy ones.
