I would like to return the the 2nd printer

Richard G. Falato, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchase two Epson Stylus Photo R380 Color Inkjet Printers by mistake but I decided to keep both. After using one of them and running out of ink, I started using the 2nd R380 Epson Printer. When it came time to replace some of the ink carriages, I found that, even though both printers are R380, the 2nd printer uses different ink carriages than the other Epson R380 printer. I can't understand this.

Ink usage a shocker!

  • Summary: I had my previous printer for 5+ years but my grandson needed one so I purchased this Epson thinking I could start printing photos with it. I'm ready to trash the darn thing. It uses ink like it's drinking water. I'm going to try and return it to Amazon.

Better save plenty of money to pay for ink!

David Grimm, Amazon

  • Summary: This printer, like most other Epsons is an ink hog. Moderate amounts of printing drains the ink cartridge and you'll be constantly buying and stocking spares. When you look at the costs of this, its far cheaper and better to have photos printed by professional photo processors than to deal with printing them yourself. Of course, Epson wants you to use lots of ink - that's where they make their money...

Major Ink Hog

  • Excerpt: A set of (6) cartridges costs $120. I installed the printer and did some test pages and 3 5x7 photos
  • Pros: Photo quality OK. Didn't use it much. CD printing nice feature.
  • Cons: Spend your life savings on ink. Uses color even when you don't need it.
