Summary: Overall, this is a good printer. Just be aware that the cost of ink is a significant factor, even if the salesman tells you otherwise. Mechanically it is good. It not too noisy. The only problem we have ever had is running out of ink, or the ink drying up.
Pros: Good quality image
Cons: It won't print in black if you are out of color ink
Excerpt: This is an old product and as expected it isnt as fast as a modern printer. It also does print as well. I have used this printer for many years at work. It takes a while to warm up but prints fine, every so often it requires the heads to be cleanesd otherwise you get stripy prints.
Excerpt: I bought this printer as an upgrade to the Epson Stylus 400 over 6 years ago with my first computer. Since then it has proved itself time and time again needing absolutely no maintanance other than automated head cleaning routines.
Pros: Very reliable, cheap ink available
Cons: slow, noisy, not up to current print qualities

Excerpt: I have had my stylus printer for a fare old while now and it is still going strong. Albeit a little dated, what with all these new fangaled Photo printers and stuff flooding the market. But it's still a good printer and should not be over looked by those of you on a tight budget.
Excerpt: The Epson Stylus 600 is obsolete, having been overtaken by a whole load of new “PHOTO” printers. However, with the way things go these days, how else are you ever going to write a long-term reliability report, if you don’t write about obsolete kit?
Excerpt: In this technological whirlwind of a world we live in, the moment you get your new piece of hardware home and plugged in it has already been superceded - or that's how it seems. However, the 600 is still a good quality printer.
