Summary: My mother and I got this printer for free when it came with our computer in 2002. The printing results were excellent, but after a while, print setting had to be put on best to keep print quality at its sharpest to prevent white horizontal banding.
Summary: It looks solid, prints nice, but won't print anything the second that any one of the four ink carts run out. That's right--I can't print in black because the Cyan ran out! In the small town I live in, I have to ORDER THE REPLACEMENT and wait until I CAN PRINT FROM MY OWN PRINTER USING MY FULL BLACK...
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.

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.
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.
Summary: I bought this printer on the strength of its reviews. My goodness, Epson must have photos of the editor's of PC magazines in compromising positions. Clogged nozzles, degrading print quality, hours debugging XP drivers.
Summary: Hands down, the worst printer I've had. Sure, when it works great, it's wonderful. Nice clear printing, fast, blah blah blah. My Epson c80 has been the most problem-filled printer I've ever owned.
Summary: Not only does this printer run through ink *way* too fast, it dies right around the time your warranty expires. My first one just stopped printing (well, it went through the motions, but produced a blank sheet of paper) just under a year after I bought it.
Summary: The Epson c80 printer is designed to suck money out of you! The printing is OK, black and white printing is not as crisp as my HP PSC500, however it prints much better color prints than the HP. Why does the Epson c80 suck money out of you?
