Summary: When my Epson R220 printer died, I needed to replace it or get a different printer that could print labels on printable CD's and DVD's. Since I had the R220 installed on four computers and had purchased several ink cartridges, it was cost-effective to replace the printer with another of the same type. I found a reconditioned printer identical to what I needed for sale on Amazon for much less that a new one would have cost.
Summary: I Ordered this to protect our new investment and i'll have to say it works very well and it arrived way ahead of time since it was other side of country.. 4 or 5 days and packaging way not crushed or damaged.. thanks alot and set up was easy i did it all by myself on a day that had no wind.. great sale and product as well as service would of gave 10 stars but only have 5 lol ..thanks again....
Summary: i bought the epson R220 to replace one I've had for years. Pro: It's the best small workhorse desktop for all needs. Con: The Epson inks are expensive. I've had many Epson printers, including the 7800. Whenever I've used 3rd party inks, they clog or create other problems, so I bite the bullet and use Epson inks.
Summary: If you need a color inkjet to print documents, photos, etc, this is just an average printer. But if you need an inkjet specifically for the purpose of printing directly to DVDs, the Epson R220 is head and shoulders above its competitors. Quality is consistently superb, calibration is straightforward, and the printing process does not produce any scratching on the DVDs whatsoever.
Summary: Read quite a lot of reviews about this printer before I bought one. A lot of people have complained about the expensive ink cartridges, and the chips that Epson insisted on putting on those cartridges - apparently to "monitor" ink levels, but I suspect the chips are there to prevent refilling. I've owned one of these printers for over 10 years, with a slight modification.
Summary: I needed an Epson printer of a certain type. It was an older model. New ones were too expensive, and I found this used one by this seller. It was delivered in a short time and came as advertised in used but very good condition.
