“When it works this printer generally turns out clean...”

Written on: 29/06/2007 by oldfule (3 reviews written)

Good Points
When it eventually accepts the paper or card to be printed, it usually produces a good printed result, but not always. There's sometimes smudging or mangling of the print medium by the rollers.

Bad Points
The printer is temperamental and unreliable, the instructions are a dog's breakfast, running costs are sky-high for Epson ink, Epson paper range is limited and the printer won't accept many other brands.

General Comments
When it works this printer generally turns out clean photos on glossy photo paper and crisp matt text with matt images on paper. But it'll reject most other media such as WH Smith matt 180 gsm card (which is certainly not heavy card) or pre-cut greeting cards. Although I've had this thing for about three years now its just about packed it in completely and my usage is far from onerous. It'll slip two pages for every page it prints and that's after countless "Media not loaded properly" error messages and resets. Three years of unsatisfactory performance isn't value for money when you look at the purchase price and running costs. The previous comments on ink wastage are right on the button. The unit cost of each successful print must be horrendous.
