Summary: I hope the title doesn't sound too harsh. Although I find the printer is very good it only produces good results for photos when Epson papers are used. I have a stockpile of good quality photo paper (Kodak and Canon) from when I used to print a lot of photos. Unfortunately the results on this paper are extrememely poor, unuseable in fact. I was on the verge of returning the printer until a friend gave me a few sheets of Epson paper to try.
Summary: I have only had this printer for a day and not had time to overcome all the nuances that it produces in set up or operation. The machine really looks the part. Smart and piano black. The control panel shows finger prints and believe you me by the time you have set it up there will be many. It is clearly design over function. The Pictbridge is difficult to get into due to being recessed so far into the body.
Summary: This printer replaced my HP 7280 all in one. The Epson 730 is used mainly at home for scanning, printing homework, occasional colour document printing and photo-copying b&w docs in the home. (I mainly use a laserjet for B&W printing). I spent about a week looking at HP, Epson, Cannon and Brother in the 100-150 pound price bracket. Decided on this printer because it offered the best specified print heads at the price plus it had airprint and a print email server.
Summary: Sieht gut aus, bietet einige Möglichkeiten mehr als mein alter Canon Drucker aber : der Canon war handlicher mit der Papierzufuhr, hat selten 2 Blätter zusammen geschluckt und dadurch falsch ausgedruckt und war einfacher im Handling mit z.B. pdf-Files beim ausdrucken. Manchmal nervt der "neue" mich ... und kann es sein dass ich mehr Tintenpatronen kaufen muss oder ist es nur "just an illusion" ?
