Summary: This item was very clean for a used printer. Print head had dried out and was replaced with one from an existing C80 that had failed mechanically. After normal clean up etc, printer is performing excellent. Was purchased to replace a C80 that failed. And the price was great !
Summary: I purchased this printer because it was just like the one I had and the ink I had just purchased would work with it. After buying a cable which I understood did not come with the printer it worked fine.
Summary: I cannot get the printer to print clearly. It seems like the print head is no good. I was missing the holder for the paper also. I have a printer like this so I was able to use the one I had. If I did not have that I would not be able to do so. I thought that when I bought the printer it was to be in working condition.
Summary: This is an excellent quality printer - typical of Epson products. The colors are rich and vibrant - even photos printed years ago still look new. The downside of this printer is that the actual printheads are integral to the printer and the ink cartridges are just reservoirs. (Other printers have the printheads on the cartridges.
Summary: Epson printers have been outstanding (at least the Stylus series) ever since they first were produced. I bought this C80 when my last one finally died and I had 4 brand new ink cartridges and no printer. I needed a printer for my office computer, so I started looking on E-bay. I found one and I am very happy with it!
Summary: This is a great all around printer that can print on multiple types of media. Its not that fast but not slow either. The print quality is great as long as you keep the printheads clean. The only thing I had a problem with is that sometimes it takes a while to start up and get ready to print. Overall I would say its an excellent printer for a student or someone who doesn't print a lot of photos.
Summary: About a year after I bought it, my C80 printer started to have problem. Every time I turned it on, its power LED started flashing and ink LED was always on. I couldn't print anything. Ink cartidge was still full. I even tried print check described in its manual and that didn't work. I contacted Epson support and they couldn't figure out either. It's now sitting in my closet.

Summary: I bought this printer my last year of college based on a number of excellent reviews both online and from reputable publications. When I first got it, I loved it. Fast printing, great quality printouts, and the price was right for a broke student. Though it went through ink quicker than I would have liked, I was pretty conservative with its use and only had to swap black cartridges once in the span of a year.
Summary: I hate to say this about an Epson product, but this printer sucks. I bought three of these: one at home and two at work. The first clog was after one week, and between the three they all had major clogs within two weeks. It cost a lot to run their cleaning cycles. I bought third party ink at about 1/3 the cost, and these cartridges actually worked better! Within three months all three printers were useless.
Summary: I bought an Epson C80 along with my Dell Computer, and it constantly gives me hell. The main problem is the nozzles.. they get clogged way too easily and no matter how many times I clean them using the automatic nozzle cleaner function built in, the clog won't go away. I will have to buy a head cleaning kit to fix it. The other problem I have is that it doesn't print on the paper straight because it pulls the paper in at an angle. I have no idea how to fix it.
