Great Value! Use generic cartridges which saves even more money!
10 November 2012
Summary: Have had a C84 forever and it finally broke so I thought I would upgrade to a C86 specifically because it uses the same ink cartridges as the C84 and I had some leftover because they are soooo cheap! This might be the last Epson injet style left that will use the generic cartridges and I can't tell you how much money I have saved thru the years and the prints are great!
Summary: This is a replacement printer for the same model. It is so easy to use. It has individual ink cartridges so you can replace only the one that is empty. You can also order the replacement cartridges on ebay that are compatible and work great. Saves a lot of money by not having to buy the epson brand. Just used this to make our son's wedding invitations and they looked as good as the professional ones that cost about 10 times as much. This is my third one and I love it.
Summary: great to do business with, very fast delivery 1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111
It's a great printer, I get great service from them.

Summary: I look at the ink sales that are posted on ebay and when I find a good place to buy ink, I find a new printer on ebay that will use this ink. Epson is one of the best buys that I know of on ebay. If you go to Staples and want to buy a set of four (4) ink cartridges, it will cost you $73.00. And they will tell you what a buy it is. I go to ebay and buy twenty four (24) cartridges for under $30, delivered.
Summary: The printer was shipped to me very quickly. I was very thankful, I could not work without it. It works well and I am very satisfied. The price was good and I was having a hard time finding a new Epson Stylus C86 that was not way out of my price range. With the system that I use at work this is the only type of printer that is compatible.
Summary: The Epson Stylus C86 is an ideal personal desktop printer that can produce outstanding photographic prints when used with care. I needed a personal printer to sit beside my computer that could handle moderate volume. I still use the networked office printer down the hall for occasional bulk jobs, but the Stylus C86 is perfect for most day-to-day work. Ordinary text printing is fast and sharp.
Summary: The Epson C86 is a very good home printer. I have had this printer for almost a year now and have had no problems with it what-so-ever. Changing ink cartriges is very easy and no tme consuming at all. I use this printer mainly for home/school use. Being a Graduate student I am often print term papers and this printer can handle my 30+ pages very easily.
