Epson 460 - efficient, good, old printer

28 August 2008
  • Excerpt: ". I do remember that like today when this Epson's printer stood next to my first PC. It was about 10 years ago. Was looking amazing and was worry to touch this. When was printing- looking at it from every possible side. How it comes and how it goes. It is a colour printer so you can print text, images or even pictures. Printing pictures is not really the strongest point of this printer but you can do it if you want. They come in sufficient ...
  • Pros: Ink prices, printers price, durability
  • Cons: none for time it was produced

  • Excerpt: "...reliable. I love my little Epson 460 :-) ___________ *Ease of use* ------------------- -One of the main reasons my family bought this printer is because we're not exactly wizzkids when it comes to computers. Infact my grandad, who bought the whole contraption has only just found out how you switch it on! Anyway... loading paper is very easy, you just pop it in the top, slide the little blue barrier on to fit the size of your paper and your away. ...
  • Pros: Cheap and cheerful
  • Cons: Very basic, cartridges hard to load at times

Reliable yet undervalued, but enough about me

  • Excerpt: "...the ink. The printers in the Epson Stylus range are all Inkjets, so give you good quality prints without the extravagant prices. This is my main reason for recommending them to you. In addition to this, you will find that the ‘460 has many endearing qualities, such as its capability of withstanding forces ranging from children to …well …children. Don’t get me wrong – I love the little mites, but they can get a bit ...
  • Pros: Cheap, reliable, a little beauty
  • Cons: Aged, expensive ink, slow on pictures

Epson Stylus Color 460

11 October 2003
  • Excerpt: "This was the first printer i ever had, i got it when i bought my P.C a few years ago and it still works great, i have only ever had one problem with it and that was easily fixed by re-installing the drivers. The cartriges are always on offer like buy one get one free for around £15 for 2 black and 2 colour which i think is reasonable, i have heard of people paying £25 just for 1 ink cartridge. It prints up to 4ppm in black, 2ppm colour and uses ...
  • Pros: the cartridges are cheap

  • Excerpt: "This printer cost me just £70 and its dirt cheap to run too as one can get ink cartidges which work fine from www.ink4u.co.uk. Colour cartridges £4, black £3. But do not use PCline cartridges from Dixons. They jiggered the printer and I had to clean it about 10X before it worked properly! Its not worth buying genuine EPSONS. They're £18. I can get 6 for the price of 1 if I buy compatables which actually look just like the genuine article. With these ...
  • Pros: Value, quality, speed, cheap ink available

  • Excerpt: "...the other end of the Epson helpline for dealing with my problematic printer so efficiently…twice! When you first ring them up you do get thru’ to the usual “push button” options. I am not a great fan of this practice, preferring every time to speak to a real “live” human, but have to admit that “Yes it is an efficient way of getting the precise service you require, fairly rapidly in today’s “go ...
  • Pros: Efficiency !  !
  • Cons: Push button options,a neccesary evil?

A reliable choice

23 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "I've had my Epson for about a year now, and can't really complain about it at all. It's printed roughly about 10,000 pages probably, and used up 3 cartridges colour and 4 black. I have no complaints about the quality too. It gives wondefully crisp lines, well defined graphics and clear text, without wasting too much ink in the process, running happily at 4ppm. However, there is only one snag with this printer. It's cartridges. Currently, there are ...
  • Pros: nice quality graphics .  Speedy, not too noisy .
  • Cons: no refill

class printing on a budget

18 November 2000
  • Excerpt: "Epson Stylus Color 460 is one of the latest range of Epson printers to hit the streets. It hails towards the budget end of the market, but is still a fine product. It is very sturdy and can take being dropped once or twice (I should know) and still work fine. The quality of output is pretty astounding for the price, you get an awful lot of printer for your 80 quid these days. Colours are reproduced well and with the paper packeage that I received ...
  • Pros: Good photo output, guite speedy
  • Cons: small spider legs on normal quality paper

  • Excerpt: "A cheap and nasty machine if there ever was one. It clunks and grinds away and doesn't produce much different output to an old HP deskjet, except that the ink is more feint. The printer came with a CD containing some extras. This failed to work at all and the shop told us that it wasn't necessary anyway. The quality is not very presentable - I certainly wouldn't use it to compile a job application. The plastic gave it a very clunky and cheap ...
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Not cheerful, clunky, noisy, poor quality O/P

A good workhorse

26 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "I've had this printer now for seven months and I really can't complain about it at all. It does everything it is supposed to, producing good quality black and white pages and reasonable quality colour pages, although there are a range of settings which mean that if you want to produce really high quality colour images, you can (although it will put quite a drain on the ink reserves). The cost of print cartridges is high, but no higher than equivalent ...
  • Pros: Good quality output, very reliable
  • Cons: Expensive print cartridges
