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 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.
Summary: The Epson Stylus Color 880 has to be one of the best printers ever produced by Epson. It's fast, quiet, prints great looking documents and does an admirable job with photo printing as well. The best feature is that you can purchase aftermarket ink cartdriges for about three bucks a pop for both color and black and you can print until the print cartdriges are all but empty as there's no computer chip in them to shut you down because they think ink has run out.
Summary: Few products make it to Epson's Hall of Fame. This is one of such products. The Epson Stylus Color 880 is fast, quiet, and extremely reliable. Unlike other printers, the 880 is Made in USA with Japanese components. It offers high resolution printing for photos, separate ink carts for colors and black, and an ultra quiet operation that won't wake up roommates sleeping in the same room.
Summary: This was a used printer & i had no experience in buying a used one. So this turned out to be a bad choice & learning experience -Printers that are 3 yrs.old or well used are usually a through away item. This don`t hold true all the time but is a good rule to follow--I`m still looking for a 2 ink well printer yet--I`m still asking questions & researching -seem all or the ones i`ve looked at are not 2 ink wells but have many ink wells =$$--Just my view--john
Summary: I bought this printer more than 5 years ago and it's still working great! I use it nearly every day and have gone through dozens of ink cartridges. I always buy the cheap kind, not the expensive brand names; you can get them online for $3-$5 each. It takes one black and one color and is really easy to put in and take out. The quality can be really, really nice. It can be set to "economy" mode and prints quickly, but very low quality.
