Excerpt: There is one main advantage to the DuraBrite inks versus the 2000p inks: while prints done on the 2000p often exhibit metamerism, prints done on the C80 appear to be free of such problem. I could not observe any green color shift when looking at a print alternatively under tungsten light and natural light. This fact alone is enough to justify my interest in this printer.
Excerpt: At almost twice the initial cost of the budget C60, the Epson Stylus C80 packs a lot more technology into a sturdier unit that produces output with better color fidelity and image quality—and it's even faster than the C60. And unlike the C60, which uses a tricolor cartridge, the C80 has separate cartridges for cyan, magenta, and yellow inks—a cost-saving feature for those who print a lot of photos and graphics.
Excerpt: Physical setup for the C80N print server is easy: You plug the print server itself directly into the printer's parallel port, connect the server's separate power cord, and plug a network cable into the print server. Alas, network setup is more difficult. If network printing is new territory for you, expect to need help. Epson says it's examining these issues. For now, though, unless you are experienced in networking, steer clear of the Epson Stylus C80N.
Excerpt: Le renouvellement des imprimantes bureautique à jet d'encre Epson continue par le haut de la gamme. La Stylus C80 offre une résolution d'impression de 720 x 2 880 ppp devenue standard chez Epson. La principale nouveauté vient des cartouches d'encre séparées, comme chez Canon et Xerox, déjà apparue sur la C70 et la C60.
