Summary: While staying in Sweden, I purchased this printer new in 05 at pretty steep cost over there. It's just now being sold and still working by girlfriend living there. But I recall her saying the inks were a problem, which simply the tanks were made too small of a container.
Summary: This printer guzzles ink like a Hummer drinks gas. I almost ALWAYS use grayscale printing and yet it consistently runs out of one of its 3 expensive color cartridges (which means you have to replace them before printing anything at all).
Summary: This printer is very convenient in our WiFi household [family with high school and college students, a couple of laptops, a couple of desktops, something different every day]. We used to keep a PC with attached Epson C80 printer on wired LAN. The PC had to be on and the printer had to be on.
Exercise in frustration for low light pics--and very little control
20 September 2006
Summary: This printer has been an exercise in frustration. I was very happy with our Epson 200R, but we used it to death and wanted to try an upgrade. I should have bought 2 more of the Epsons. I like to take pics in low light, and this printer has not yet printed a low light print w/ enough detail.
Summary: Despite what others have reported, I had no problems setting up the printer for both wired and wireless. I do recommend setting it up wired first. My 2nd computer prints via the DLink wireless router with no problems.
Summary: This printer is wonderful. The print quality is as good as you get through snapfish or similar digital processing companies - assuming you step up and buy good photo paper. The output speed is excellent in both color and black.
Summary: The setup and installation was very easy. The text printing is fast and very good. The photo printing is also very good. Like having the cassette for photo paper and don't have to switch the feeder. I am very happy with the printer.
Pros: Had I read all of the reviews more closely, I would not have been so pleasantly surprised by some of the features I've found. I didn't realize it had the bottom paper tray or that it had built-in duplex printing. I was looking for and focusing on finding a solid printer with networking built-in a...
Summary: Positive: I've had this printer about three months. The printing quality of both photos and text is very good - considerably better than the quality of the Epson Color 800 it replaced. It is fast and reasonably quiet. The two sided printing and the dual paper sources are nice features.
