Summary: You pay under 100 bucks for a printer, and you get better than you deserve with this printer. The print quality is top notch, the speed is good, and I like the ink monitor too. Yes, it is noisy. Forget the late night printing... Also, if you don't print a lot -- for instance, I don't use color that often -- the ink clogs. That means you'll have to clean the ink-jet heads -- an automated but time consuming and ink wasting process.
Summary: I'm very happy with the speed and quality of this printer. On a Macintosh, the software is simple and efficient. For the astonishingly low price, you get very good results. But the noise comments posted are completely true. I bought this as a replacement for an Epson Stylus 740, which I would hardly have called quiet, but even so I was still pretty surprised at the clatter and bang this thing produces.
Summary: I'm an HP printer guy myself, but I bought this as a replacement for my girlfriend's mom's old mono printer (it was a 7 year old Canon BJ-200...!) I ask you, how many photo quality printers can you find for this kind of money? Setup is as easy as any.. Plug the printer in, turn the printer on, hit the "ink" button, insert ink cartridges, hit the ink button again. Then you insert the CD in your computer and double click on the Epson icon. A 5 minute job.
Summary: I wanted a Mac-compatible, fast, good quality printer for home use and got it all with the Epson Stylus C60! All the reviews that warned about noise braced me for it, so that when I first turned it on I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't any noisier than the Apple Stylewriter it replaced. I didn't realize, however, that two-sided printing was an "extra" feature on printers.
Summary: I like the printer except it seems to use ink quickly. We have owned the printer less than 2 months and have replaced the ink cartridges 2 times already. We have printed some things but I don't feel as if it has been enough to use 2 entire cartridges. Besides that we enjoy it.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive, but good quality printer. I bought the C60 with the mail-in rebate offer. It prints both color and black very quickly. The main drawback is the noise. It sounds SO much louder than I would expect to be 'normal.' Overall though, for price and quality of output, I'd say the C60 is a winner.
Excerpt: "These printers are excellent for home use, their printing quality is very fine and well,they are equipped with inkjet technology, the printer is very light weight, its cables are easy to plug, and its drivers are easy to be found on the internet or you can also use the driver CD provided with the printer, so it does have all these advantages but their is also a downside to it too, since it is very light weight therefore its plastic quality is not ...
Excerpt: "This printer I just recently bought for printing out coursework at Uni., and I'm really quite chuffed with it. The print quality is excellent at 2880dpi and at over 6 pages a minute it really does churn out the pages. The printer is designed to fit anywhere on a small desk, which is exactly what I have, and takes up only a small footprint. I haven't been running it long enough to give reliability marks to the component but all indications are that ...
Pros: fast, cheap and economical to run, easy to install
Cons: better printers are available for high volume output
Excerpt: "After a disastrous Epson 480, which was a very poor quality-computer package item, that blew up after a year. I then hesitantly purchased a C40, which was also cheap, but equally as poor lasted 6 months. Epson offered a C60 as a warranty replacement and I have not looked back. I have had this for a year trouble free. I have only used compatible inks at around £10 a pair, but even so- it gives a good photo resolution at 7 1/2 ins X 5 ins size and ...
Excerpt: Printers are an expensive business, so unlike the old day?s when you could go get any printer and it would do, these day?s we have a plethora of choice staring at use, some offering standard printouts, some offering the best photo technology yet and some offering scanners and photocopiers as well as a humble printer to boot. So what?s with all the choice? Well it all depends on what you are actually going to be using your printer for. If it?
