Summary: I decided I needed a colour laser when I was spending all night (and lots of money) on inkjet cartridges and photo paper. The C1100 has the best reviews of any colour laser in its class and there's a reason for this. It's brilliant.
Summary: Actually didn't buy from Amazon. Got a better deal at the time from Viking. The printer gives outstanding colour and mono output. It is ENORMOUS compared to a colour inkjet and it takes a while for colour images to come out when doing a one-off (cos each individual colour cartridge has to rotate).
Summary: I bought our first Epson C1100n in 2007 after a lot of research and replaced it with a USB only C1100 in 2009 after we got a printer cartridge jammed and needed to print some marketing material urgently.
Summary: Print quality is good - though the colours sometimes lack the brilliance of other manufacturers colour laser output. Consummables are expensive in standard retail outlets, but can be found much cheaper on Ebay.
Summary: Arrived within a day, after a couple of weeks a message started to appear advising a service was required (E511) called Amazon who gave me contact details for Epson Technical Support who talked us through the query which related to the photoconductor and the problem was resolved immediately.
Summary: Bought the Epson to replace a worn out HP colour laser, sad that it's cheaper to buy a new printer than have bought the HP replacement parts! Chose the Epson based on low price, speed and lower consumables cost.

Excerpt: Having purchased a number of the C1100's predecessor, the AcuLaser C900, purchasing one of these was seen as a natural step, and is a step that has not proved dissapointing. The printer comes well packaged, and protected, it what is possibly a slightly oversized box!
