Summary: I've used this printer for years. At first I noticed several instances of poor quality color reproduction and was disappointed that what I saw on my screen never quite managed to get on paper. Images lost their vibrancy and were simply dulled and somewhat grayed. I noticed this would occur wether I used the all-too expensive Epson ink or generic ink. It was not a major issue for me back then so I tolerated it.
Summary: Great printer but do not let the print heads dry out. I had to let me printer set for a few months without using it due to a medical problem. I have have to buy new ink for all eight colors twice trying to clean the heads.
EPSON name is synonymous with greed. Troublesome Printer!

Summary: WHEN it prints it prints beautifully. But rarely does it print at all because one or more of the ink jets is clogged. In fact every Epson printer I've had is a nightmare for this reason. I've had this printer about 6 years and commonly when anyone asks me to print something out my response is usually, "it's not working now.
Printing and ink causes nightmares after frequent use. Scanner is the only quality thing about this product.

Summary: I've had this printer for nearly two years. The photo quality prints I did for class were lovely at first, but they started to get streaky and I had to clean the head a lot. The ink is a nightmare and runs out very quickly and is not worth the price to replace! Why is the black cartridge 20 dollars!?! It won't print even if only on color is out. The copier works great. The feature I use the most is the scanner and it works wonders!
Summary: This printer has been a major disappointment. While the cost for the features seemed great, the ink runs out quickly and printer heads need to be cleaned frequently, thus using even more quickly. The print quality is just plain sad. Photos? Forget it. Even documents do not print with crisp, clean fonts. It's slow, too. I'll avoid pigment ink printers in the future.
Excerpt: You can do many things with the Stylus Pro 4800. It is a large format printer aimed at the small business end of the market as well as the home user and it offers a range of specialized and flexible media options. I am at present setting up a graphic design and screen printing business and I hired the Pro 4800 in order to do some large scale images. The printer gives you the ability to print up to 17" wide on a variety of media types.
Summary: Personalmente adquire una impresora de este tipo me parecio excelente en la impresion, pero a la hora de imprimir presenta demasiados problemas cuando se le da la orden de impresion, pues comienza a enviar demasiados mensajes de error: como atasco de papel, papel torcido, falta de tinta de determinado color , el papel no coincide con las medidas . etc... En fin usted comienza a verificar todos estos mensajes y resulta que todo se encuentra bien.
