Summary: Ive had two of these in eight years, first one finally died after using it every day for six years. This one I have now I bought used for a good price. It's like the first one and it prints several times a day. I like it because each color cartridge is separate and I can get refilled cartridges at $6 a cartridge on the internet. I've read that if you let this printer set for several days without using it, some of the colors might not print.
Summary: ...the C84 is no exception. I'm reading through the bad reveiws that other people have left and can't believe it. I have only ever had minimial problems with any Epson printer I've owned. Not only that, but Epson has some of the best customer service around. They are so helpful if you have any trouble installing, etc. If you take care of a printer, it will take care of you. Regular maintence on the print-heads is always a good idea.
Summary: This is a good picture printer but you need to know how to take of the printhead. Keep to sets of the cartridges and do not leave the printer without any cartridge and use the printer every now and then to keep the printhead moist for optimum printing. For cheaper solution use refill cartridges -- variouse outlets out there.
