Summary: I bought this one to replace another one same brand and style. Still have it after so long. Was a good choice. It uses the cartridge that you can find the alternatives for a very good price. I like to print quite a lot stuff and this works for me.
Summary: My old C60 got killed by some lightning. I wanted a C60 to replace it because the cartridges for the C60 are a fourth the cost of comparable printers (see: [...]). The price for the used model was right and it has performed at the level I wanted. My position is that the cost of the cartridges is just as important as the first cost of the printer. If you buy a printer for $29 and the cartridges cost $18, why is that a buy.
Summary: I bought the printer because my previous one died. This one arrived apparently intact; however, I cannot get it to work. I put $62 worth of new ink in it. I pressed the ink replacement button--the carriage went all the way to the right, made a horrible buzzing noise, and then the printer turned itself off. I've tried many times to get it to work, but the same sequence takes place. I've used the C-60 for years, and know I did everything right.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!! PLEASE!! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN SANITY!!! I got this printer for free when I purchased a Mac Mini, and let me tell you, the price was too high. They should pay people to take these monsters away! I average about 30 printed sheets per black ink cartridge. That is NOT an exaggeration. Not only that, but the print quality is atrocious, leaving horizontal lines because it is constantly clogged.
Summary: This printer has yet to print a decent page. It CONSTANTLY needs to have the print heads cleaned, and even then you have a 90% chance that it will leave horizontal bands through your text and pictures where it skips. On top of that, it needs ink refills faster then any printer I've ever had. Don't waste your time or money. I'm ready to trash it and get something else.
Summary: I think it lasted well the first year or so, and it's nice that you can buy generic cartridges for like $3 if you buy in bulk, but this printer is a nightmare. Not for college students! I came back from winter break only to find it not able to print much. The ink head gets dried out or clogged up if inactive! Makes you psychotic and wastes HOURS UPON HOURS of time, with trying to run printhead cleaning utilities.
Summary: I'll concur with most other reviewers. Takes forever to start printing. If you don't print every day then you'd better use the head cleaning utility before each print (which wastes ink). It knows if you're using non-original cartridges and I suspect that it treats them differently. Original cartridges are very expensive and don't last long. I'll never buy Epson again.
