Excellent performance ( eventually) but a bit on the noisy side!

Summary: Set up was easy, but black ink would not print. No test pattern after many cleaning / nozzle check cycles. Epson replaced machine. Replacement unit functions perfectly. It does make quite a racket while it prepares to print ... You don't want to have this unit running in a baby's room!
Summary: I am very familiar with both regular 4 ink inkjet printers and the more expensive 6 ink inkjet photo printers as I print a lot of photos for family history as well as for a collectibles magazine and have used both types of printers. I have always preferred using a good quality photo printer, however, this new 5 ink inkjet printer gives you better photos without the higher price tag of a photo printer.
