Summary: This is my third Epson in the last 6 years. And it gives me the worst experience. First, I got the software problem. The printer just randomly stops during printing process (under win2k , USB) and not responding. Restart the printer doesn't solve the communication problem.
Summary: Pluses for this printer includes cheap price, individual color ink wells, and very good plain paper prints. Prints on matte paper is supposed to be very good, but I haven't tried it yet. Prints on glossy print, in my own opinion, is poor. I've compared it to the HP 970c...
Summary: I bought the Epson C-80 hoping for great photo quality prints. Unfortunately, I've gotten nothing but dull photos. I've tried every settings with several different types of paper and I can't seem to get an acceptable "photo quality" print.
Summary: I bought this because I saw a good review in a technical magazine, it was under $200, and it came with a $30 rebate. As soon as I got it I tried out the printer to see the quality of the print. I found that the comments about the pathetic text quality was right.
Summary: I purchased the C80 a week ago based on reviews I had read in several publications and because the Epson Stylus 850 I had before produced beautiful photo results (alas it died from clogged print head syndrome). Installation on my PowerMac was a snap.
Great quality but HUGE BOTTOM UNPRINTABLE/LOWER QUALITY AREA

Summary: Don't know about the clueless person who couldn't get this installed - that went very quickly without the least hitch, and I did it under 98 and NT. I've compared the output of this printer to a multi-thousand laser and must say the similarity of quality is quite astounding.
Excerpt: Amis fidèles des imprimantes EPSON, voilà de quoi vous séduire : l?amélioration des imprimantes 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.
Excerpt: Ich kann mich den Vor-Kommentatoren nur anschließen und will daher nicht jedes einzelne technische Detail dieses Geräts erneut aufzählen. Der C80 unterscheidet sich aus meiner Sicht erfreulich von den normalen Plaste-und-Elaste-Druckern.
