Fortune on Ink.. even if you only want to use black ink

Michael Stefancic, Amazon
7 August 2007
  • Summary: This is a piece of junk. I mostly only use the black ink however, I am forced to replace all my colours when each of the other ones dry up which is every couple months. The software prevents the user from printing, even if the image is all black and you tell it to use black ink only. I end up paying 5 times the price for black ink. I will never buy an epson printer again.

  • Pros: Prints nice color labels on CDs and DVDs.

Don't be tempted to waste your time and money with this one!

frustrated photographer, Amazon
24 October 2004
  • Summary: As a photographer, I had done quite a bit of research before going with this printer. It boasts great resolution, and (here is the one good thing I will say about it), the photos it prints are outstanding. However, there are several fundamental things VERY WRONG with it. It does not like any type of card stock or photo paper. I have tried several brands (including Epson's own). If you are using regular paper to print, it is fine.

The disk destroyer

wasagamike, Amazon
12 April 2004
  • Summary: I purchased this printer specifically to print CD's. When I brought it home, I tested it on 4 x 6 Epson Photo Paper, and the reults were impressive to say the least. I printed 3 photos. I then setup to print CD's. the first dozen or so discs came out beautifully. After that, it was nothing but disaster. Ink contaminating the roller wheels for the cd tray has ruined the disks.
