Summary: I have had this printer for over a year. It does use a lot of ink, that is the least of its problems. I bought a brand new set of genuine epson cartridges and two of them were rejected by the printer.
Summary: This is my second Epson 380 Printer, the first I purchased new from an Epson Dealer and it is a GREAT Printer. This one that I just purchased on Amazon seem to work quite well,I have not had a chance to use it very much yet but I did print some pictures and it seems to the job quite well, the only...
Summary: The printer works fine. But the color isn't right. When I print pictures of people with blue eyes, the blue is a muddy grey color. I am disappointed since the whole point of the printer is to print photos. Update: 10/25/2010 - I'm still using this printer and it still works.
Summary: After careful research I just bought this printer. Returning to photography in the digital age after years in the darkroom as a kid. I printed on a generic HP printer but friends said I need to upgrade. It is simple to set up and the first prints were amazing.
Summary: I received the printer (as a great gift) on January 16th, I set it up and it wouldn't print - the ink cartridge holder seemed stuck in place. I called Epson who shipped me out a replacement with no charge or delay. I used that printer for two weeks and it quit.
Summary: Was ready to buy the R380. Our Kingston SD card did not work in the display models at BestBuy and CompUSA. The Pic demo did not work in either store. The same SD card works fine in both our digital cameras, as well as my Dell SD slot.
Summary: I got one of these along with a Canon G7 for my wife for her birthday--she has been printing non-stop and the pics are amazing. Does it seem to work its way through ink? yeah, but there are no free lunches and I will deal with the ink consumption because of the quality and convenience.
