Summary: It prints too fast and for me being a visual artist and silkscreen hobby man, that is not what I am used to with an inkjet printer. I want my positives transparency film output to be as dark as possible. I have produced some fine positives with this printer but my halftone gradients are not coming out as dark as I would like.
Summary: One the plus side, the finished product from this printer looks fantastic. That, unfortunately, is the only thing on the plus side. It is very slow, and uses up so much ink. It is designed to use 2 black ink cartridges so that you can change less frequently. The added print time is so minimal that it isn't even worth it. As for the high-yield cartridges, they print maybe 50 pages more than the regular yield.
Summary: The printer has good reviews. My HP quit in the middle of a job so I searched for a replacement. I chose anEpson wide format Workforce 1100 after reading customer reviews. The printer came delivered in the colorful Epson printer box inside a second Amazon supplied cardboard box. The outer box was a bit roughed up at the corners but in decent shape. Good move Amazon. Unfortunately the printer did not work out of the box.
Summary: We use this printer only for printing pdf building plans at 13x19". It makes great prints and has not presented any problems as of yet. For the money you probably can't go wrong. Update: Printer suddenly failed after one year and seven days. Seven days out of warranty. Probably printed 150 13x19 plans in that period. Spent an afternoon reinking, rebooting, unplugging, trying another computer, and emailing epson etc.
