Summary: The Epson Stylus Photo printers that we have used provide very nice color photo reproductions. Print time for color is reasonable depending upon the preference setting on the printer. Black print is very good and fairly fast. I would recommend this line of printers.
Summary: The plus side: Very easy to install (I have windows 2000, Dell Pentium II), photo quality is very good. The flash memory card reader should be very useful for many people (I don't use it because I already have a memory stick reader). The down side: the roll paper. This suppose to be a good feature. But it's difficult to load the roll paper. Also, after finished printing, you have to cut paper manually, and very carefully.
Summary: This is my first photo printer and I've bought this after doing a lot of research. My biggest concern was how can a ... printer print photos that are comparable to expensive Lab developed photos. I do not know how it is possible, but after I saw the pictures that came out of the Epson Stylus Photo 850DC, I was absolutely spellbounded! The clarity and feel of the photo's are exactly as the ones of Lab photos. All I can say is that you have to see it to believe it.
WOW! Wonderful Printer! Epson 875DC Is A Shining Star!

Summary: I do not know why people are having trouble with USB. I am using this printer with a Pentium 150 Laptop and did not have a problem with installing the printer nor installing the software that comes with it. In fact, I have this printer running through a USB port in my docking station so any problems with USB must be the individual computer's problem and USB support may just need updated drivers. Also, my pictures have printed quickly and I just love this printer.
Summary: I am not sure of the quality, since I just received this printer yesterday. However, I can tell you that it took me four to five hours to install. It kept freezing my system when it was configuring the printer port. Finally, I went to the Epson site to look around. I came upon a new driver in the downloads area. I downloaded this driver and after several attempts, It installed properly.
EXCELLENT Quality and Speed, but Epson support is terrible.

Summary: I've owned Epsons all my life, and if there's one thing they've always kept focus on is the quality of their prints. They were the first printer company to really target "photo-realistic" printers to the mainstream market, and I think their R&D team has done a fabulous job at improving their technology over the years. The prints are absolutely fabulous, and I haven't noticed any of the fading that some of the older models had a problem with...
Summary: I purchased this printer recently and I am so suprised at how well the photos turn out. I printed out some professional photos and they looked almost identical to the originals. Anything you print out only takes a few seconds to print & the quality is excellent. I also like how you can attach a small roll of photo paper to print smaller photos. There is also a helpful feature that lets you see how much ink you have left. Cards also look great when printed out.
Summary: Wow! Can't tell 875DC prints on glossy paper from local photo processing...amazing color and quality! Plus it's very fast and so quiet. Built-in card reader for digital cameras makes images available almost instantly. (Comes with adapter for CompactFlash cards, 9 paper samples, and paper roll/adapter for glossy 4x6 prints.) All this and it's no bigger than my old Epson Stylus 800! I'm using the 875DC with a Mac G4 but it's for PCs, too.

A great contender in the photographic inkjet world

Summary: The Epson Photo 875DC produces some of the sharpest photos I have seen. For use at home or a small office, the speed is very good, noise level is minimal, and print quality excellent. I have printed on special papers from the glossy to the matt finish and have been very satisfied with the quality of each. I have even put through heavy card stock paper, such as for greeting cards, and it works like a champ.
