Summary: I've always liked Epson printers but the latest ones are getting very expensive to operate. The ink runs out much faster than the older models did. With the addition of each color having it's own replacement, the cost to keep these things running has gotten very expensive.
Great prints, but it IS an ink drinkin' cartridge chomping printer

Summary: I got this solely to print custom CDs for a new business project and while the CDs look fabulous, I am shocked at how FAST I go through the cartridges. Yes, I read the other reviews and thought that it could NOT be as bad as they made it sound. Guess what? It is!
Summary: Overall, the printer is good. Color printing is excellent, the speed and noise are good, but printing a black & white photo has been a problem. It is more sepia than true B&W. I removed all color from the picture using Photoshop and made sure the printer properties were set properly.
Summary: I have used my Epson R260 printer for about three weeks and have already had to replace the five color ink cartridges, although it is not my perception that I have done a great deal of printing.
