Konni C., Amazon

  • Summary: I received this printer free after rebate almost a year ago. After reading earlier reviews of this printer I was somewhat surprised! I've been using my epson c86 for almost a year now and use it on a daily basis.

Good and affordable!

W. Paul W., Amazon

  • Summary: This is the upgrade to the C84. This isn't a huge advancement, and if you have the C84, don't bother. If however, you're looking for a new printer for home use, consider this one.

A good workhorse.

Steve, Pricerunner

  • Summary: In summary,it's an average printer that is surpassed in every dept by the latest on the market.The quality of the prints is acceptable but not great.Stay away from epson ink and it's reasonably cheap to run.
  • Pros: The printer is basic and very easy to use.Compatible ink cartridges are easily found and make for a very cost effective printer.
  • Cons: It has a cheap feel and seems large for such a basic printer.I've had this printer for over two years and i'm surprised at how much ink it can go thro' if you have a quantity of printing to do.The odd sheet seems to use nothing,but print 20-30 pages and you'll be wondering where the ink has gone....

trevorbro..., Ciao
20 January 2006
  • Excerpt: This is my 7th Epson printer - and like all the rest, it lives up to the acronym title I have supplied - Epson Printers Start Off Nicely. And you may well wonder why I have persisted with a brand that should really have been called EPCUB - Epson Printers Clog Up Badly ! Well let me explain !
  • Pros: Great Epson ink quality
  • Cons: Great Epson ink prices

  • Excerpt: Yes, it's true! Epson have developed a digital colour photo printer which they claim prints photo's that will have a fade resistance of over 80 years. Wow, no more scabby old, faded pics of yesteryear...
  • Pros: A3 +  glossy photos that'll last a lifetime .  .  .  nearly .
  • Cons: None that I've seen so far .
