Summary: This was such a disappointing purchase for me. I've had several Epson printers in the past 12 years and have met varying degrees of satisfaction from them. I read initial reviews that praised the Artisan 700 for it's print quality and features, thus made the purchase after quite some deliberation. Pros: - Scanning is acceptable and has decent results compared to past Epson scanners I've owned. - Using Epson paper with their Claria ink results in excellent photo prints.
Not a solution for less expensive studio printing...

Summary: I do studio and action photography. I wanted an inexpensive printer that I could use in place of sending them off to a local studio for about $5.00 for every 8x10, $1.99 for a 5x7, and $.29 for a 4x6. This is not the answer...let me say that again, not the printer that you want for pro or semi-pro photography. After 23 8x10 prints, the Light Magenta cartridge is out. After 28 8x10 prints, the Light Cyan cartridge is out.
Summary: I purchased this printer three weeks ago. When the printer is working correctly, the print quality is superb. I like the fact that Epson has done away with the plastic tray that used to be necessary for printing on CDs and DVDs. The scanner is also top notch. I have three problems with this printer - ink usage, print head performance and an unwieldy paper tray. After three weeks, I'm on my fourth set of inks...most recently, the more expensive "high capacity" set.
Summary: My husband bought me this printer for Christmas. We thought this would be the perfect printer for digital scrapbooking. Not so much. If you are looking for a printer that does a nice job on greeting cards, this would suffice. I thought the card reader was a nice addition, but my tower has a card reader in it also.
Summary: All’inizio della mia carriera di opinionista in ciao.com avevo ho scritto una recensione entusiasta (anche se un po’ striminzita, ma come si dice l’appetito vien mangiando) sulla Epson Stylus Color 580. Ne avevo appena regalata una alla mia dolce metà e a parte qualche difficoltà di configurazione mi sembrava di aver fatto un buon acquisto per completare degnamente anche se senza troppe pretese il suo neo-arrivato PC. Era il gennaio del 2001.
