Ive been a big fan of Epson printers, just bought Epson 720 WD
14 December 2011
Excerpt: My pal phoned me for advice about buying a new printer, so I did a bit of poking around for him and when I read the spec of the Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD I was very impressed, so much so I bought one as well! I have used an Epson Stylus R265 for years, so much so I have bought replacements refurbished off EBay, as I think they are now discontinued. Great printer. Guess what? The Epson Stylus PX720WD uses the SAME cartridges!!
Pros: Functionality and print quality is exceptional . Price is well worth the money
Excerpt: For me its a okay product. like other Epson inkjets, this isn't a great printer for black text. Draft output isn't black enough, but it isn't striped. Normal-quality text is good enough for occasional use. It's quicker than many Epson inkjets i have reviewed in the past, rattling off draft text at more than 20ppm, slowing to 8.8ppm at the default Text quality. Things aren't much slower in colour.
Summary: When it works the results are very good indeed. The quality of the pictures are better than anything else I have ever owned but the reliability and mechanical performance leave much to be desired. Ten good pictures require twenty sheets of paper. I have tried many different qualities and thicknesses of paper but the printer has a mind of its own, whatever settings I put into the set up menu the printer decides if it is going to feed the paper through and at the moment it...
Summary: About a year ago I bought the previous model, the px700w, and if I'd have reviewed it in the first 3 months I'd have given it five stars. Things started going wrong very quickly after. The ink seemed to get used up extremely quickly and the expensive genuine cartridges were often "not recognised" by the printer when they were still half full. The printer kept reporting clogged nozzles and the cleaning not only wasted ink but filled the waste ink pads.
