Summary: Bought used from D.H. Varieties - this is the what they wrote me after I attempted to return and my response: Mr. Wakeley, I am sorry that you are choosing to return the item in which I tested the unit before shipping it. I am going to return a partial amount.
Why is there no zero star or worse rating? This scam product would deserve it

Summary: The printer "uses" ink even though the muzzle did not let a single drip through. I hoped to clean the black nozzle by printing large black boxes. Well, the paper stayed nicely white but the ink was "out" after a few pages and the printer refused to continue without having the cartridge replaced.
Summary: I bought this a few years ago because I thought it had decent reviews, but little did I know! The photo printing leaves something to be desired, it was grainy and ugly, I've seen better on cheaper printers (this was around $200 when I bought it).
Summary: I was in the desktop publishing business in the 1980s. Companies sent us their printers for evaluation. Since that time I have used or reviewed dozens of printers. Two years ago, a client gave me the Epson R260 so I could print on inkjet-printable DVDs that I was delivering to him.
Summary: Do not buy this printer!!!! This printer will not accept ANY generic ink, it will only accept ORIGINAL EPSON INK. This refers to the Model Epson Stylus Photo R260 made after May of 2007. How low can a company go by doing this? Oh i forgot, it's Epson.
Summary: I bought it brand new on 11/17/2007. On 1/4/2008 Ebay sent me an email asking for writing a review. If I did that day I would say it's a great printer, for that price. But today, 1/11/2008, the printer is dead, totally, with the red light on, indicating the ink cartridge is not recognized, although...
Summary: the print quality was good and the speed as well, and the pics came out good. the only problem, and i just got off the phone with the help desk for epson, is that it only lasted one year, give or take a month. i have kept ours clean and covered when not in use.
Summary: It is very difficult to write a review about something that I never received. So that said I am not sure why this was sent to me. I love Epson printers. They usually are much better then Lexmark which allows other companies to put there name on there product.
Summary: Great print quality but its ravenous ink appetite is atrocious! I had an Epson 220 which failed during the warranty period and Epson sent me the 260 as a replacement. The 220 was bad enough for ink usage but this is much worse.
