A Solid Printer and an Excellent Value

the_obsolete_man, Ebay
5 December 2009
  • Summary: This is a very good entry type level printer that is robust and reliable. I've used a few of them and have been very pleased. The DVD printing and the ability to use aftermarket external ink tanks (CIS) make this an excellent buy. Although not super fast, printing quality is very good to excellent. Recommended.

No Regrets

perigo394043, Ebay

  • Summary: Originally, I bought this printer as a used unit to be used solely for printing imprintable dvd's. So far, that's a work in progress. I have done some cardstock printing and that turned out nice. This printer's lifesblood is six color cartridges that run about $15 each from Epson; on the generic market a R260 compatible cartridge set goes for $20 for all six including shipping.

Epson R260 works great for DVD labeling!

Randy "Black Library aficionado", Amazon
25 October 2008
  • Summary: Got a Tivo recently and archive my shows to DVD so generate a STACK of DVDs regularly. Tried all the standard transfer labels but just wasn't happy with the results; the white ones were "ok" but very pedestrian. The clear ones were the best looking but invariably trapped air bubbles. Solution: printable DVDs and the Epson. Bought a used Epson 260 after reading all the reviews and have been VERY happy with it.

Best Photo Printer

yobob54, Ebay
9 March 2008
  • Summary: I have had many many printers and this printer and the R380 print 4X6 digital photos as good as I have ever done. But I give it a 4 because Epson caused the Federal Trade Commission to ban all imported ink cartridges,(not OEM), that are compatible with Epson. My point being the OEM Ink is too expensive.I spent hours checking all the inkjet websites for compatiable R260/R380 refills to no avail. All said,"Not Available at this time.

Epson Stylus Photo R260 InJet Printer

bruce3943, Ebay
7 February 2008
  • Summary: I like the price of this printer and the functions it has for the price compared to some other brands. It has some faults like the print head starts getting clogged after a bout a year of normal use and even sooner if it is left on and not used for several days. I know how to service it and get it working again since I have 2 of these printers and have had 2 of the previous model.

Stands alone for professional-grade print to CD/DVD

geff pix "geff foto", Amazon
12 December 2006
  • Summary: After my Epson R220 failed, I was shipped this as a replacement from EPSON (a two-day shipping time, mind you), having first selected the Epson line soley for its optional printing direct-to-CD/DVD -- and for this feature alone the 260 is superb. The R260 is an extensive mechanical upgrade to the original mechanics of the Epson R model line (new printing path and much improved tray) with a considerably improvement of reliability.
