Summary: This printer has a great performance with wonderful jobs, there is a variety of adapters for printing cd, id cards, photos, t-shirt transfers and much more. Had a great software for setting up your printing preferences.
Summary: Wanted to print on cd or dvd. This unit works great for that application. The price for what I wanted it for made me decide to purchase. So far I am very pleased with the performance of this printer. I prefer Epson printers for all my printing needs.
Summary: This is a great printer. Terrific Quality. There are a few more ink cartridges 6 in all. And since the model is fairly new, the reman cartridges can be hard to find. I've purchase the refillable cartridges to save money. Overall this printer is easy to use, quiet and delivers great quality photos!
Summary: This actually turned out to be an R280, the updated R260. Like most Epson Stylus Inkjets this one is top drawer in the price range,easy to use and exceptional color reproduction on photos and other work. It was picked as a Best Buy in the current issue of Consumer Reports magazine I use it primarily to print color labels on CD's, and make CD jackets from scans and it works like a charm.
Summary: I needed a printer capable of printing directly onto DVDs because LightScribe can not create ADA-compliant labels, and DVDs with paper labels often "skip" and play incorrectly. Only Epson makes printers that can print directly onto DVDs, and the R-260 is their current lowest-end product with this capability. Indeed, this printer is so low end that ink refill packages cost about three dollars more than the printer (which comes complete with ink).
This is a AWESOME printer! This one was for Mom!!!

Summary: I bought one of the Epson R260 printers for the capability to print on CD's and DVD's. I also found out that you can use one of the CIS ink systems which I purchased and can't believe how long the ink is lasting plus the quality is incredible!! I have a T-Shirt business and this printer works BEYOND great for transfers!!!!
Summary: I really love this printer. I purchased my first one over a year ago from an office supply place in town. I had gone there to purchase new cartridges for my R220 and found out I could buy this R260 (with cartridges) for only about $10 more(on sale). Before I switched to Epson I swore by HP. The main thing that I switched for was the capability to print CD's. Then I compared the two for picture printing. Actually there was no comparison, Epson won hands down!!
