Purchased it to back up my Artesian 810 and it's doing that.

Summary: It's easy too use and the photos that I have printed are better than I can get at mini lab, Haven't used it enough to comment on ink how long ink cartriges last but I am satisfied with it so far,
Summary: It is a sturdy printer that makes good color prints. I had two of these. They eventually, from long usage, need repair or new parts at which point it is probably wiser to buy the next printer that Epson makes to replace this one. I bought a used Epson Stylus Photo R300 from an eBay member and while it worked satisfactorily for the first few uses, the color seemed to be more strong in a way that was unpleasant and then it started to crimp one corner of the paper...
This working printer has been a great buy for all the features included!

Summary: This used Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer was well packaged and arrived in good condition. It needed external cleaning and after running built-in printer utilities to clean the print-head, the printer test printed well. I have an identical printer which has worked well. The direct CD/DVD printing capability is especially useful. This model (R300M) has a external view monitor but it doesn't work but this seems to be the only problem.
Summary: Have had this printer for several years and have been quite satisfied with it. The color quality of the printing is outstanding. I have a newer quality printer by another top manufacturer and the colors are not nearly as vibrant as they are with the R300. Epson apparently makes some of the best inks. I use standard 20 lb. paper in it and get good quality. Photo paper gives better quality of course, but heavier paper does jam easier in this printer.
Summary: There are few things that I dislike about this printer. It does not have a lighted LCD display, ink has a short life but...... It prints photo lab quality and is very good selection of options.
Summary: I do believe this is a good printer, simple and reasonable for the price and quality. I have the similar one and it is working for the last 5 years. It does have problems but there are minor. Overroll it is a good product with cheap not OEM incs.
