judgeroybeem, Ebay
6 December 2007
  • Summary: the epson 1200 is the simplest printer and most inexpensive to operate, easy to maintain and if it should go down for repairs (God forbid) is very easy to repair provided the parts are available. i have 4 that are working at this time along with 2 880 printers ans 1 hp psc printer... so as you can tell i really favor the 1200 ... oh yes and i also run one with a cfs system one thing i dont appreciate that the epson company has done ...

Love it!

  • Summary: As with all desktop Epsons', the ink jet heads are part of the printer, not part of the ink cartridge. As such, clogging can and does occur. IF you have one that is clogged, there are cleaning cartridges available online as well as detailed instructions on how to clean the heads. I did just this and my used 1200 works perfectly! IT is fast, reliable and can reproduce terrific prints. I used simple Windex to clean!

Good all round A3 printer in it's day

  • Excerpt: "I have had one of these printers for a good few years and it has given me trouble free, excellent quality print outs of everything I have needed. I used to be a graphic designer and used it for all of my layouts for clients and a lot of photographic printing. The colour was, with a little bit of tweaking, excellent. Although A3, it does not print edge to edge therefore you get approximately an 8-10 mm white border. I can't imagine you can still buy ...
  • Pros: Good photo quality printing
  • Cons: Slow by today's standards .   Surprised if you could find one for sale now .

Long term test on the 1200

20 September 2001
  • Excerpt: "...have now been using the Epson 1200 for a couple of years and have found the reliability excellent. Because I use it professionally for digital imaging, with the emphasis on high quality B+W images, my requirements are very stringent. I have been known for the highest quality conventional photographic quality, so I only moved into digital image output when this printer came on the market. It is still satisfying all my highest standards. I print using ...
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality output
  • Cons: Takes time for an A3 +  image  -  but just make a cuppa !

  • Excerpt: I’ve had this printer for over a year and printed everything I can think of. It’s done excellent photos and has also managed to completely trash some print jobs. Overall it’s very good but unless you need the A4 capabilities I’d probably go for something smaller. I’ve done several A3 sheets and it does them as well as any A4. The software is good, prompting me to change the ink at regular intervals which can prove expensive.

Better than my old one

10 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "...I had previously used the Epson 600 for several years, but this printer is much better for two reasons: 1. It uses six color inks instead of four (adds light cyan and light magenta to the color ink cartridge), and 2. It prints on paper up to 13" wide. The Epson photo paper is a great buy at around £5 for 20 sheets, or about £0.25 per sheet. I have also recently been experimenting with archival quality papers from Lumijet and Legion. A couple of my ...
  • Pros: Uses 6 colours
  • Cons: none

  • Excerpt: "We bought this product on the advice of a third party for inhouse business communications and graphic design. It has been well worth the investment and I am totally amazed by its output capability. The output resolution is very high, and gives very good digital camera output performance without too much compensating in touch up software. Coupled with a half decent scanner, I would recommend this printer for anyone who wants full colour output at a ...
  • Pros: Excellent colour output
  • Cons: Small ink cartridges

epson 1200 is a great printer

blondie21, Ciao
3 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "We brought an epson stylus 1200 printer from a friend for the great price of £200, this buy was well worth it if you intend to do a lot of printing in the photographic area, and if you wish to go bigger than A4, for this is an A3 printer. I would recomend you buy this printer if you are heavily into photography, and want the best results. If we had got this printer for such a great price we would have missed out on a great printer. The disadvantage ...

  • Excerpt: The new EPSON Stylus Photo 1200 is a BIG photo printer. How big? How does a 13" x 44" photos grab you? Well, the Epson Photo 1200 can output that size if you want it to. The whole unit is 22.8 inches wide! Not your average desktop printer for sure. This is one fast printer. The EPSON Stylus Photo 1200 can do an 8" x 10" print in just two minutes. The quality is amazing. We’re talking about photo prints highlighted by virtually continuous tone and super smooth gradations.

  • Excerpt: In a world full of pocket-sized PDAs and miniature cell phones, it's hard to find many top-tier hardware products that won't fit easily in your briefcase. One exception, the Epson Stylus Photo 1200, offers high image-quality scores to match its mammoth dimensions and supersized prints. Best of all, you won't pay a gargantuan sum for the privilege: this king-size offering comes with a highly competitive price tag.
