Not as sharp as a Laser printer / Not immediately Mac-friendly
1 September 2011
Summary: My use is unconventional, so take comments in context. I'm an illustrator and bought this for printing black line art on watercolor paper. It's not as sharp as a laser printer, but it takes large, heavy paper and the ink is 98% waterproof, which is great.
Summary: I purchased this as a favor to my mother and she loves the printer and the fact that she's now able to print all the pictures that she takes with her digital camera, but the ink is ridiculous after a couple of pictures the color quality wanes meaning that if your like my mother and looking to pursue...

Summary: Looking for a large format, yet affordable printer to support my Architecture school needs, I opted for the Epson Workforce 1100 which I bought on October 2009, on a price 20-25% higher than the current - which was very competitive at the time..
Summary: We got this to make printing architectural drawings faster than our supersized printer that prints 24" x 42". We paid over 1500 for that printer and I've hated it since the day it was installed.
Summary: I'll admit, I wasn't mentally prepared for the size of the printer until it came in. My first thought was, "My goodness, this thing is humongous." And you can tell that before even taking it out of the box. So, if you are going to pick one up, make sure you have plenty of room to put it somewhere.
Summary: First this printer is huge, (and heavy!) keep that in mind and pay close attention to the dimensions. Second the print quality is outstanding, one page on maximum quality, one page on high speed, they both came out excellent. Thirdly, its a little loud.
