Summary: The c88+ is a very good printer but the one i received, the power button gives trouble, i have to press it 8 to 13+ times for the printer to come on. When i print full border less 8.5x11 photos there's atleast one edge with a line so it prints bend.
Excerpt: I have the printer a few years, had to replace another C88+ that was faulty. I thought I would print some photos on it, but it's 95% of the time used for documents. When printing docs, like my resume, I have to tilt the paper a bit in the feeder so that text comes out straight.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Size
Cons: Slow Print Time, Too much ink used, Unreliable

Summary: Sorry, but I just received this new printer this afternoon. Took it out of the box and hooked it upm properly, I thought. It will not print, however, and tells me that it is not properly connected.
Summary: I too have always been an epson fan. For the record, during the first cycle of ink cartridges, I thought this printer worked great. The photo printing is bright, clear, crisp and speed was not sluggish. Faster than the older epson model I had been using.
Summary: this is the 4th C88+ printer I've had in 3 years the first one lasted about 2 years the second I bought lasted less than 1 year a refurbished replacement was replaced under my waranty, it lasted from april this year until now september 2010 i was told the waranty would not cover it so I purchased a...
Summary: Has been a reliable printer. I have needed to clean the heads often to keep from having many lines on my pictures. Big downfall is that, after a while, the pages started printing crooked. Pictures and text aren't very sharp either.
