I just got this one (new). In a few years, I will get another if needed.

Summary: This is my second C84 and I also had a C86 It is a workhorse, versatile, reliable! Over a 12 year period I have used these printers heavily. Worked them to death. Good quality prints/copies. I have nothing negative to say.
Among a small elite which both work with LInux, and which print envelopes.

Summary: Like most inkjet printers, the jets clog after some period of use. I purchased this printer to replace one which suffered that infirmity, and for which the cost of repairing the unit exceeded the cost of replacing it,...particularly since I'd stocked up on ink cartridges. This printer is certainly not perfect, or the clogging would not have occurred in the first place, but, as inkjets go, it's the best I have owned, and I recommend it for dependability.
Inkjet purchase to replace the two others that went Kaput(C66)

Summary: Works great so far and I was surprised that it came with a parallel port, and a USB port. Reason I say this is I have owned the C66 which only has a USB port and had thought that this model being a higher number would only have a USB port also.
Summary: For those of us not looking for the next new computer and ways around the wireless age this machine DOES THE JOB. My dad is using a computer from 1999 and still uses dialup service. This was a replacement for an existing printer that he put throught the mill and guess what....the replacement still pumps out the printed documents needed for his part time job. Sure the wireless/mobile world is great but for old school you cannot go wrong. Thanks again.
Summary: I bought the Epson c 84 as a replacement. Going on over 2 weeks and its working great. The church printer went out and the pc that is used for payroll uses parallel ports...not usb. So this was the perfect fit. Thanks for having this item on hand.
Summary: This is my third C84 after loosing my last one in a house fire. The pigmented Dura-Brite inks are fantastic. For a printer that only uses three colors plus black it produces great prints up to 8.5 X 11. I have some framed ones that still are just as vibrant as the day they were printed.
Summary: I like all my Epson printers I use with my macs (4) except the Epson CX4600. I looked all over for an Epson C80 something that would print on OS 9, after the C86 they did not have any printdrivers for that system. I found the C84 used on ebay and it works perfectly. I would highly recommend it.
Summary: I've had my Epson C84 for about 3 years. It hasn't been used much because I've been sick. But I think it's a wonderful printer. I've printed beautiful photo's. The ink cartridges are expensive, but they are for all printers! You only have to replace the one that is low on ink. I'm selling mine, because I need a scanner and copier. I'll miss my C84! I actually did replace it with an Epson CX500n All in one, printer, copier, scanner. Love it!
