Epson Sylus 900

homunculus2, Ebay

  • Summary: The Sylus 900 is, in my opinion, the best inkjet printer every made. It has every printer connection ever standardized - parallel, PS-2 serial, and USB. Its normal print mode is plenty fast. High quality mode is slower than some current generation printers, but very high quality, and economical on ink. This used unit appears to be in very good working order, and the cartridges shipped with it both work.

Love my Epson Stylus 900 Color.

  • Summary: I bought my 900 back in 2000 and have used it exclusively since then, without needing repair to date in 2007. It is a fine-fast printer, especially when using firewire. Detail is sharp. I've printed many thousands of pages using different types of media, and it does a good job on any kind of paper stock, including business cards, envelopes, etc.

  • Excerpt: Epson's Stylus Color 980 is a big, no-nonsense inkjet printer, capable of printing pages up to oversize A4 in a conventional way, from a paper tray angled at the back of the machine to a telescopic receive tray, which folds down and pulls out from the front. Controls on the printer include buttons for power, paper feed and head cleaning, while at the back there are interfaces for parallel and USB cables - the choice of connection is yours.

Epson Stylus 900 Excellent Buy

tintin, Ciao
20 May 2001
  • Excerpt: The Epson Stylus 900 is in my opinion one of the best printers on the market. I bought mine as I needed very high quality printouts. At 12 pages per minute for normal text printing and 5 pages per minutes for graphical printouts I can't complain, it is a very easy to use printer which could be easily installed by most.
  • Pros: Prints 12 Pages a min for normal text, Large Ink Cartridges,  5ppm for graphics .  Very good Quality
  • Cons: I don't have any complaints

Fast and cheap to run

opinion-m..., Ciao
12 March 2001
  • Excerpt: The 900's purchase price is not what you would describe as budget, as many printers these days are £50-60 BUT the running costs are very low, and over time you will find that the savings you make from the inks will offset the cost of ownership. The printer is around a shade over £200 and is a business workhorse. Epson benchmarks are 12ppm mono and 11.5ppm colour, quite zippy printing figures.
  • Pros: fast, cheap to run, high quality prints, optional software RIP and networking
  • Cons: slightly larger desk print, slightly higher purchase price

900 Ink compatibles value for money

soothsaye..., Ciao
30 January 2001
  • Excerpt: I changed to an Epson 900 about 5 months ago and happened to meet a friend who told me about compatible inks. My post is really about my experience with the inks I use in my 900 I have used compats before, but suffered a bad experience with them, so converted back to Epson and always paid the Epson full prices.
  • Pros: Cheap, reliable and lasts a long time
  • Cons: limited suppliers

Epson 900... Speedy

XJSGAV, Ciao
3 September 2000
  • Excerpt: When looking for a printer to print off the odd photo and a lot of text document work I have to say this is one of the best all-round. It has blisteringly fast black and white speeds of 14 pages per minute, which makes this printer ideal for people needing to do a lot of text work, and excellent near photo quality printing I would recommend it for any home office set-up.
  • Pros: Super - fast inkjet
  • Cons: Qute loud

  • Excerpt: I was bought this printer for work by a loving boss!! When I first used it i was stunned by the speed that it printed but then i realised that the test page wasn't at a very high reolution. Yes, the colour photos you print on this machine can come out looking absolutely superb but only if you are prepared to wait 25 minutes for one page!!!

Epson 900 What Workhorse!

jamesoliv..., Ciao
8 August 2000
  • Excerpt: We bought our Epson 900 from Action Computer Supplies June 2000 & specifically use it to produce high quality brochures. With exceptionally high quality this printer exceeded my expectations, especially as an IT manager I swear by Hewlett Packard?! not for much longer maybe. The only downside is that the Spray head is part of the printer & presumably has a life span where as HP is a new head with each cartridge.
  • Pros: High Quality, Fast in mono & affordable
  • Cons: Less ink per £
