  • Excerpt: Ive had this printer for around 3 years now, i pruchased it because i knew i could soruce the cartridges from ebay and similar for around 4 pounds for the set. The printer takes a combination set of black and colour cartridges, 2 in total. This is great cos as the black runs low, you dont have to bin the colour to refil. The printer provides photo quality printing, well almost on glossy paper, good enough for albums and alike anyway.

  • Excerpt: We purchased this printer as a compromise between quality and cheap cartridge price. The cartridge prices are reasonable and they last for quite a long time under normal use. We were also pleasantly surprised with the quality of the print outs. The text is quick to print and good quality. Colour pictures are also relatively quick to print with a good quality depending on the printing preferences selected.

  • Excerpt: "== Epson C46 Printer == === Basics === This printer is a fair few years old now but is still worthy of a mention. I picked mine up for next to nothing, I can't remember the exact price but I seem to remember getting change from £40. It connects very easily using a standard USB cable which does not come in the box. === Quality === The print quality isn't amazing, but for such a low price printer is perfectly acceptable. Useful for draft printing ...
  • Pros: Cheap printer, cheap cartridges
  • Cons: Print quality low, noisy, a little slow to start printing

Epson Stylus C46

  • Excerpt: "Our Epson Stylus C46 was bought 3 or 4 years ago as a standby printer, as our Epson CX3200 was showing signs of advancing age. We paid around £50 for the C46 and were immediately pleased with its performance. Although a little slow, it made up for this by being easy to use, and producing good quality print and pictures. We were, therefore, dismayed to receive the message 'parts in this printer are now beyond their service life' , following which ...
  • Pros: Cheap, easy and produces good quality print and pictures
  • Cons: Slow speed, short life

  • Excerpt: "...and dangerous prospect, then the epson stylus c46 may well be the printer you've been crying out for. Similarly, if you're an avid beard grower you may find sitting by this printer to be a relaxing and theraputic method of whiling away the hours whilst you cultivate an impressive mane of facial hair. Well, it would be theraputic if the printer wasn't doing it's best to deafen you. Simply put, then, this printer is without a doubt the most horrendously ...
  • Pros: Not a known carcinogen
  • Cons: Everything .

Cheap and Cheerful little Printer

  • Excerpt: "...was pleased it was an Epson I got free. Installation was so easy I thought I'd done it wrong! I simply plugged the printer into the main and then the USB connection into my laptop and it went through the installation process by itself. I believe this is because I have Windows XP which does this for many products such as Memory sticks etc. No problem there then. Inks are a little different, you hold down the button that promtly falshes to remind ...
  • Pros: Cheap and Cheerful
  • Cons: Noisy !  !  !

  • Excerpt: "I guess I got what I paid for here. This product had good reviews, so I thought I was getting a bargain. However, this printer has the following major problems: 1) Poor print quality - smudgy and blurry 2) Expensive to run - the ink runs out ridiculously often, after printing about 30 pages. And the cartridges are not cheap. 3) Every time I've used this printer I've had to fiddle around to get it working, with lots of problems getting the ...
  • Pros: None

  • Excerpt: Love this printer...cheap and cheerful. Does what it says. Inks are very cheap, I buy from Pheonix or Inraider the compatibles and they last ages. I will buy it again when this one wears out.
