Excerpt: The new Epson Stylus C80 color ink jet printer ($180 street) answers two complaints about ink jets: smeary, smudgy prints and expensive ink cartridges. The new waterproof, long-lasting, nonbleeding DuraBrite ink used in the C80 is rated for 70 years of light resistance. Epson's individual color ink tanks, with their self-sealing valves, keep for up to six months without drying out.
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.
