Summary: I've had my Epson C60 for at least 5 years now. Five years is far too long. I bought it because I needed a printer quickly and the price was good. For the money it does produce decent prints for day to day printing of basic things like text or to get a general idea of colors off the net, but I cannot rely on it to produce anything of high quality for graphic presentations. The worst thing about it is really the cost of official Epson ink cartridges.
Summary: This printer will, sooner or later, chew through your wallet in ink catridges. When functioning normally, it seems to use ink at a faster rate than any printer I've had, including other epson printers. And the ink for this printer is not cheap. As another user pointed out, even compatible catridges are pricey, much more than say, Canon ink. Most alarming is the printer's incessant need for nozzle cleaning.
Summary: A good printer if your printing needs are light but a bad choice if you do a large volume of printing. Only had printer for a year and already parts need replacing. Just to have someone look at it to tell me what needs replacing is going to cost $65. Mind you, I only paid $99 for it. It also uses up ink too fast. I have to buy 2-3 cartridges a month and they are expensive, $30 per cartridge. Finally decided to go with laser. Will never buy another inkjet printer again.
Summary: While the printer itself may be relatively cheap, you'll spend so much money on ink that in the long run you'd be better off getting a good laser printer. It seems to run out of ink after only 15-20 pages.
Can't pring just B&W if you have no Color Cartridge in it.

Summary: I found the Epson C60 to be an average to poor quality printer, having owned it for about two years now. I don't print much at all, so I didn't want to spend alot on a printer. My impression is that there are now much better printers on the market for less. The thing about it that annoyed me to no end, was the fact that once it's run out of color ink in the color cartridge, even though it has plety of ink in the black and white cartridge, it won't print simple black and...
Summary: I bought this printer about six months ago. I bought it because of its price and it was my mistake. I have a digital camera and I print a lot of pictures. Print quality was poor when I was printing pictures with high contrast. Pictures didn't look very realistic and were blurred. On the other hand I was satisfied with black and white documents. Cartridges are pretty expensive (about $...) and last for about one to two months. I wasn't the only one using it though.
Summary: hey, it's an [inexpensive] printer and you get what you pay for. I had mine for about 6 months and it always had a problem printing more than 4 or 5 pages at a time, it would somehow get jammed or confused and would have to be reset in order to continue the printing. also I had to replace the ink cartridge twice and I don't do that much printing. the quality of the print is good in both color and black and white, the cartridges just didn't seem to last that long.
Summary: I just bought this printer, and i figured out how fast it is. However, it's just way too noisy. Epson haven't really improve this problem at all in yrs. Also, I donno why I can't install the Arcsoft PhotoImpression software. It just freezes my computer once it's installing. I have to ask someone to fix it or i'll ask 4 a refund!
Excerpt: Questa stampante l'ho portata all'immondezzaio e sostituita, ahimé, con una della stessa marca, la C 40, ancora più lenta del modello precedente. Valido per entrambi il discorso prezzo cartucce: una coppia di cartucce originali costa come la stampante stessa, chiaro esempio di scarsissima correttezza commerciale. La stampante in sè, discreta e ben fatta nell'estetica, in primo luogo era rumorosa e alquanto lenta nella stampa di testi scritti; per ...
Pros: stampa discreta, estetica
Cons: lentezza di stampa, delicatezza, facilità a sporcare le testine e a guastarsi
