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.
Summary: This is a replacement of the same model which worked well for 5 years. In the end it developed an 'error B door open' and the door was not open. I had to buy the same model because I had spent nearly £200 on tonners.
Summary: I've had this for over 2 years now, the print quality is top notch. Better than a £600 Dell colour laser that the office has. Can print quite decent photos, about magazine quality not quite up to inkjet quality. The toner lasts for ages, but do cost a fortune to replace.
Summary: This printer does everything I want of it and more. Text and graphics are crisp and clear, and even on plain paper (80gsm) the quality of both colour and b & w photographs is exceptionally good.
