  • Excerpt: I bought my current PC from Time Computers in 2000 and my Epson Stylus Color 300 printer came with it. The Epson Stylus Color 300 is an ink jet colour printer. It looks quite sleek for its age, but is probably quite bulky by today's standards as most printers nowadays tend to be much smaller. The print quality is generally satisfactory and I cannot really fault it.
  • Pros: Economical with ink
  • Cons: Unreliable; slow at printing

  • Excerpt: The following report shows only my experiences and describes the printer not! And that, because it prescribes in such a way ciao.com. I did not buy this printer, but it was my father. He bought it before 3 1/2 year. At that time it cost only 199DM. That is cheap my opinion after super! I use the printer daily to print around my homework to print pictures photos for printing to print Screenshots and print in-scanned documents. This is probably a very high load!

MY LIFE IS NO LONGER BLACK AND WHITE

  • Excerpt: NO! I have got my first inkjet colour printer (I've always been behind the times when it comes to technology!). I acquired this as a hand-me-down (or hand-me-sideways!) so I'm afraid I have no idea of the price of the printer itself. Up until now I had been struggling along with pre-historic dot-matrix black and white printer (also a hand-me-down) which sounded like an earthquake whenever it started printing.Bearing that in mind this little printer was a revelation to...
  • Pros: Good first printer, quiet, easy to use .
  • Cons: Replacement ink cartridges are expensive .

The price of printing

jasonever..., Ciao
16 March 2001
  • Excerpt: To start with my printer came in a package deal with PC World. The printer is a colour inkjet printer, the quality is not brilliant and the speed is slower than a turtle. But to be fair i dont do that much printing apart from the odd letter, so i dont need to replace it. Until now, Why? Well the price of replacement cartridges is amazing, to replace the cartridge with a pucker Epson one is £21.99 from PC world.
  • Pros: part of a deal
  • Cons: price of ink cartridges

  • Excerpt: Epson was the make of the printer given to me when I purchased my computer from Tiny. At first everything was great but it seems to only print about 1 page per minute. The quality of the pictures are good until you look closer and see the dots. If you want a great printer with good speed of pages a minute then don't get this unless you have no money to buy a better one. I want to upgrade to the epson 640. They do colour and black & white printers.
  • Pros: if it's what you're looking for
  • Cons: bad quality, too slow

  • Excerpt: This printer is a mixed bag. It has good parts but then as with most things it has some bad parts and this printer has some very bad parts. But first the good parts. Its easy to install: Just connect it to the back of your PC, start up the computer and install the drivers from the enclosed CD. Cheap: What more can be said. I'm not sure how much it is not but its very cheap. Good print quality: The printer has a good quality print.
  • Pros: Cheap, easy to set up .
  • Cons: Slow print speed

Slow and very poor quality

killip, Ciao
10 February 2001
  • Excerpt: This printer is the worst modern printer I have ever seen. It has ONE ink tank including black and colour so when black runs out you have to replace the cartridge. "Quality" prining takes forever and you can still see the dots and "speed" takes longer than quality on most printers but has lines running through it. The ink cartridge is expensive and lasts a few months at most and now ours has decided none of the ink cartridges we put in it work or have no ink in.
  • Pros: Cheap to buy
  • Cons: dear cartridges, naff, slow printing

  • Excerpt: It arrived in a small box that said: do not open until your computer is fully set up. In the instruction manual, it said connect your printer before you switch the computer on. Oh, and the power cable was missing. OK.. The power cable arrived in the post and it was time to print the first document. A page. Took a minute to print. I wasn't to satisfies with the blck letter, so I set print quality to high - something I will NEVER EVER do again.
  • Pros: Prints .  .

Errrm a bit slow

lloydpick, Ciao
23 January 2001
  • Excerpt: Well, err don't get this, for the following reasons. Very slow printing about 1 page every 2.5 minutes!! Economy printing is faster but hard to read it. Good things about it are that it has lots of options to print better what you want to print. The drivers work well as it spools very quickly. Another bad point is that you only buy one print cartridge. So once the black runs out you have to but another £20 cartridge! Very useful!!!
  • Pros: Errrmm None
  • Cons: Everything

Kurzbewertung zu Epson Stylus Color 300

19 January 2007
  • Summary: Ich dachte, ich wäre der einzige, der heute noch diesen Drucker verwendet. Aber er ist scheinbar einfach nicht totzukriegen und Patronen gibts ja so um die 6-7 Euro. Die Druckqualität ist von den Standards heutiger Tintenstraldrucker aber weit entfernt. Zudem dauert der Druck z.B. eines farbigen DINA4-Bildes gut 20min. Aber wozu immer diese Eile? Übrigens mit einem kleinen Trick läuft er auch einwandfrei unter XP.
