Summary: I replaced an older Epson of the same model that I had in service for 6-7 years and was pleased with. It has been discontinued for a long time and except for excessive ink consumption, is an excellent printer.
Summary: I've been saddled with this printer for over a year now, and am ready to recycle it. Why? - It goes through a ridiculous amount of ink, and the cartridges are hideously expensive on a price per sheet basis.
Summary: The Epson 825 Printer is a reliable Printer. However I would never give over $40.00 for one due to the fact that they are the older type printers. I have owned 5 of these printer and they are cheap on ink at [...

Summary: First of all, let me echo the opinions of some of the other reviewers: this thing makes some of the best photos I've ever seen IF you are priniting direct from a digital camera CF or other memory card.
Summary: I bought this printer to print color photos and I have been extremely pleased with the results. I would say that you must use the more expensive Premium Quality Photo Paper to get the best results.
