Summary: Well it seems that it is a good printer. Now we have to see how much it lasts. Hope that it lasts at least as much as my last printer bought, an epson stylus c79 which worked perfectly for about 3 years.
Summary: Obviously I purchased this system cause I needed to print something, I was quite happy with the way it came pre filled with ink and worked out the box. I do not particularly like the way the bulk ink system looks, but it is a worth while trade off. Overall it was a good choice to produce low cost short run brochures and proofs for my wide format Sign, Flag, and Banner business.
Summary: I recently got my wife the Epson Photo R1900 and have been quite impressed with its performance. So when I needed a printer, since I'm not "allowed" to use hers, I went to look at Epson. My needs are not as great nor as demanding as my wife's but I have to say that the quality of the C120 for both photo and general printing is quite good.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors
Summary: I'm surprised by the negative reviews. I've been using my C120 for about a year. I'm only on my 3rd set of black inks and second of the color. I think I print a fair amount. I use draft mode for anything just text or with color if I don't need good quality. The printer is good quality and I'm very happy with it. My only complaint is that it's noisy.
Summary: I purchased the Epson Stylus C120 in order to experiment with refilling Epson Brand cartgridges and also for testing aftermarket brands of cartridges. The printer functions well using Windows Vista. I had intended to use the C120 with an older computer running Windows 98. Upon trying to install the printer on the Windows 98 machine I found that Windows 98 is not compatible with the C120.
Summary: First of all, you need to get a laser printer if all your printing is text. It's not cost effective to buy a color. Buy color inkjets only for color. I don't use my inkjet for photo prints. It's cheaper to go to Costco and get photographs anyway. I use my inkjet for my graphic layouts and for proofing. I had a C86 that died after 3 years. I definitely researched my inkjets. This was the only one that still used individual ink tanks- though there are 2 back tanks (why?
