In general, Rimage is considered the “Cadillac” of disc printers due to their high-quality components and parts and ease of integrating workflow due to its automation.  It has a slightly higher DPI and is a little faster at printing.

However, the TEAC P-55 has its advantages: it’s cheaper, still produces quality results and product, and offers versatile printing options due to its ribbons (double that of the Rimage model).
