Good and loud

K. Cunningham, Amazon
29 August 2002
  • 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.

Great value if you print a mix of photos and text

  • 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.

Great printer for the price!

  • 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.

Good printer

Christopher Phelps, Amazon

  • 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.

It's a noisy one

Marty Gardner, Amazon
13 November 2001
  • 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.

Loud, but great print

Sylvia, Amazon

  • 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.

Epson Stylus C60

  • 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

Useful Cheap All Rounder

  • 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 ...
  • Pros: Compatible Inks .  Price is right .
  • Cons: Size .  Slow interface .  No Manual .

  • Excerpt: "I bought an Epson Stylus C60 printer for work when our beloved HP Deskjet gave up the ghost and had to be replaced then and there. The only place locally we could get a printer at a reasonable price within the hour was Argos, so we were limited by their range. I also only had a budget of £100, which for a business printer at retail prices is tight... The Epson C60 came in at £89 with spare cartridges. This sounds like quite a good deal as, by Argos ...
  • Pros: Fast, photo quality printing .  Cheap .
  • Cons: Gets through black ink very quickly .
