Blue eyes look grey.

Heather L., Amazon
10 July 2009
  • 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.

Great when it works, but.....

Brian Heller, Amazon
16 August 2008
  • 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.

Ink is a big problem and could be a scam

Mr. Thomas D. Wynne, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: In my usage of this printer, I believe Epson is making a killing on ink sales. I only print on DVDs and only print black and just a few lines of text at that, yet the other colors also show the same decreased print level.

Epson R380 Printer Is No Fun To Use

G. Reiss, Amazon
6 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this Epson R380 printer to print DVD labels, something it never managed to do completely, which is why I returned it. Epson seems to put all its technology into preventing Epson owners from using generic inks.

Anonymous, Newegg
24 January 2007
  • Pros: Newegg quick delivery is superb even at holiday time. Thank you. You are my favorite company. I wish i had returned the item to you where i purchased it instead of EPSON
  • Cons: The printer was dead out of the box. The ink cartridge section would not move to allow placement Sent back printer to Epson and the rest was a nightmare. Poor customer service and incorrect information from different Reps.caused an unhappy exchange with Epson. I have bought many Epson printer and...
