Summary: Epson DOES NOT NOTIFY a customer that the manufacturer have foreseen the harmful measures to prevent printer from use in the case when customer tries to reduce his operating expenses. I found that a special counter is embedded in the hardware to make the printer unusable in the case of excessive cleaning, i.e. when the cheap refilled cartridges are used. The printing heads are made irreplaceable for the same purpose.
Summary: I was upset at first to find out that it didn't print. After a few days, I decided to run the maintenance cleaning a dozen times and that fixed the problem. The price was great and they shipped it right away. It must have been sitting on the shelf for a long time and the ink jets became glazed or clogged.
Summary: I bought an 820 printer 5 years ago. it was inexpensive to buy and the quality of the prints was excellent and the cost of the ink was inexpensive. I am still using pt. I like IT so much is the reason I bought this one . Epson has stopped making it and I wanted a back up.
Summary: Entry level Photo printer. Does excellent photos, but is picky on paper used-suggests Epson's own. Settings can be changed if your knowledgeable(I'm not) Supplied software useful for average person, not for pro, or demanding work. Text printing is acceptable, very faded on "draft" setting, but you can read it. Uses ink fairly rapidly, but ink is a bit cheaper than many competitors, so it evens out I guess. Loud, and seems to search alot before printing.
Summary: This is a good inexpensive printer. We use it to print photos and it generally does a very ggod job. On a few occassions the pictures have been too blue/purple and we had to adjust the color in the properties. I am not sure if this was due to the printer or the photo program we were running at the time. Set up was very quick and easy and the instructions were good. There are two ink cartridges: black and color. The color cartridge has six colors in it.
Pros: a few times the pictures have had too much blue and purple in them
Cons: a few times the pictures have had too much blue and purple in them
Summary: I love this printer. I had one before. but something was wrong with it.so i bought this one. its the same one that i had. and i love it. the pictures comes out good. and the ink is cheap for this printer. i uses it alot. i just love it......
