Summary: Just wanted to give you a "thumbs up" for getting the printer to us quickly and in the good condition you said it was in. We have a piece of medical equipment that uses this printer and they are getting harder to find. We were in need and had to trust that we were buying one that really was in great condition. The printer is working well!! Thank you!
Terrific Printer For Text and Printing Photos For the Price
8 April 2011
Summary: I've been using my Epson 880 printer for 10 years now, and so far it hasn't disappointed. Actually, the reliability and print quality of this printer has exceeded my expectations, especially considering the reasonable price. I mostly use it to print pictures of photos I've taken that I think my family will enjoy. I have prints of my photos hanging in the family room and the living room. Sizes range from 8.5" by 11" down to 4" by 6", all framed with mattes.
Summary: Nice Printer...perfect for TEXT work, when it comes to photos you can not compare the quality to the NEWER Epsons for PHOTOS...I own a few types of Epson Printers...and I will have to say the printer is good, but many times the cheap ink WILL NOT WORK IN THE 880 Epsons, and you can call Epson and ASK them...they will tell you the generic inks do not last because you do need to clean the cartrige MANY times until it is empty..
Summary: I have used a Epson 880 printer for 7 years, made thousands of cards, pictures, and scanned items. This printer has never given me a problem. The ink isn't expensive and I have used quite a few cartridges. Easy to load, very easy to correct any problems that may arrive, such as horizonal or vertical lines. I hated to have to sell my Epson, but, needed alot more besides just a printer, after my scanner died.
Summary: This is a short story about the little printer that could. This 880 epson printer was bought for my 11 yr old daughter 5 yrs ago. and it has been super. Cheap to buy ink for, easy to work with, good quality everyday printing, Nice size not big and ugly like my R380,and still running after hundreds and hundreds of uses. But like most good products, that really do work good, they quit making it.
Summary: My original printer was purchased new and I used it for more than 9 years before I got the dreaded "end of service life" message. I have now purchased one on ebay and it works just as good as my original. Kudos to Epson for this high quality workhorse!!!
Summary: This printer does an excellent job with any task, especially printing pictures on photo paper. I used my Stylus 880 for five years, and it is the printer that got me through college. However, if you do not use it frequently, very bad things can happen: the ink gums up and then splatters on the page, which gets ink on the rollers, which ruins the next 10 or 20 pages that go through the printer.
Summary: This remains my favorite printer after I bought it in 2001 for under $100 after a rebate; it was one of the last "chipless" units, so generic inks are very inexpensive. I've been buying generic ink for it from Megatoners ever since new. I even had it in storage for over a year with ink carts in it, and it didn't even need a cleaning to start printing again. Only once in it's life did I have concerns with it, which was today.
