Summary: I bought my Epson Stylus C82 in January or February to go with a Sony digital camera I got for Christmas. At first I was disappointed with the printing quality because I was having some odd lines that appeared in the middle of my photos. As it turns out, it was the paper I was using.
Summary: I bought the Epson C82 after reading the great reviews here and I couldn't agree more! I love this printer! I sell art prints on ebay (user i.d.:krystaljules), so I print a lot. I was looking for a printer that had excellent print quality and could also handle my work load.
Summary: I've had a few Epson printers over the years, and have been very happy with them. This one is the exception. As other reviewers noted, it worked fine for about a year with light use. Then the print head simply died.
Summary: I bought my C82 in 2/2003, Yesterday I changed the black print cartridge and black stopped working ran the nozzle cleaner utility and nothing. I changed each color and each one would quit working. Now the printer prints blank pages.
Summary: This printer is a bust to me. My epson 740i produced sharp, clean, clear, and vibrant prints. The prints from the C82 are a disappointment. They are flat and without the tonal range of my less expensive, but now broken, 740i. I cannot tell if it is the durabright inks or what.
Buy it if you never need to change the cartridges. No EPSON

Summary: My EPSON Stylus 580 is dead after working for me for just over 1 year, so I bought this printer. It's a fast printer for printing jobs if you are not using the photo quality settings. It's also a fast printer for inks.
Summary: I can't believe everyone is having the same problems as me. I loved it at first and then it just stopped working correctly...and it was SOOOOO dissapointing because i kept bragging to my friends about how superior my printer was!
Summary: As some other reviewers have also indicated, a year or so after I bought my C82 is simply stopped working. We tried cleanings, new cartridges and even checked to see if the vaccum tube was loose (it wasn't), but nothing worked -- the C82 simply wouldn't print.
Summary: If I could rate this 0 stars, I would have. It stopped printing after changing the ink cartridges the 2nd time. I've moved on to HP, as it's got such a great reputation. My mother bought her Epson C82 the same day as me and hers died about a month before mine did. Same thing...just stopped printing.
Summary: I am looking for a printer after my C82 died and found there are many people have the same problem like mine. I agree the C82 has a resonalbe quality but that wouldn't last long. The last thing I want to see is it's head cleaning. It sucks your ink!
