Amazon.com Product Description

If you love to play with your digital camera but also need a serious printer that can get your office reports looking great, consider this Epson all-in-one. Based on the engines of the popular Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer and the Epson Perfection 2400 scanner, the Stylus Photo RX500 adds standalone copying (no PC required) and saves valuable desk space compared to separate components. It is both versatile and reliable, enabling you to scan photos, text, or negatives; to make copies; and to print anything from borderless 4-by-6-inch photos to business envelopes.

The flatbed scanner offers 2,400 dpi optical (9,600 dpi interpolated) resolution and 48-bit color to bring your scanned images rich detail and crisply defined color separation. Archive your family photos, save your favorite articles on your hard drive, or assemble a slide show. You can also save your scans directly to a compatible memory card, even without a PC.

Instant copies can be created in four different resolutions--top speed for black copies is 10 copies per minute. When printing from your system, the RX500 produces black documents in draft mode up to 17 ppm, 16 ppm for color. Take your time and seek perfection with the optimized 5,760 x 1,440 dpi mode, for beautifully sharp photos. In a faster mode, borderless 4-by-6-inch prints appear in as little as 37 seconds. Insert your digital camera'scompatible memory card and print your evening's shots while bypassing your system. Just use the photo proof sheet mode to select only images you need.

Consumable costs are low, thanks to six separate high-yield ink tanks--you can expect up to 630 pages from the black cartridge and 430 pages from the color cartridges, based on 5% page coverage. The modern silver and black casing adds a sleek touch to your office space, while the included USB cable couldn't be more convenient. Epson provides a one-year warranty covering parts and service; Epson Exchange service is included.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Early Review
Ok, so it's only been running for a few hours...And ok, I have yet to print photos from it...But. I have printed simple Word documents and of course it's a bit slower than the garage sized laser printer I had from HP, but it's fast enough and the quality is just fine.I am a writer and photographer and I simply cannot wait to get this thing rolling on prints...The machine is gorgeous. It came together in a snap, loading the software was a breeze...I'll write more later when I put it through some of its paces...

4-0 out of 5 stars Complicated excellent Quality
After an extended search for all in one under $300 this was the clear winner.After searching the web for comparitives reviews for photo printing and finding none useful, I conducted my own comparison.I took a couple jpg files to the local superstore and had photos printed on the leading photo HP, Canon, Epson printers and at the local Drupstore.I also had the photo uploaded to Snapfish.Snapfish was clearly this winner in the test.Epson was a easy second - beat the drugstore by a longshot.Hp was next and Canon last - by far.
I was concerned about the durability of the ink from the Epsonprinter after reading some reviews so I conducted a test.I placed a few drops of water on each of these photos.Again, Snapfish and Epson passed this test.HP and Canon failed.HP claims to be durable but wasn't.What I learned in this test was the paper is the most important factor.Glossy paper is much more durable than a matte finish.
I've used the Epson for months now and am very pleased with the quality.
Now for the cons.The Epson was difficult to install.3 pages of instructions and several emails from Epson technical support were required to get the scanner feature working - and I'm a programmer.
The software can also be difficult to use.Even being very technical, I've struggled at times to perform some of the advanced features such as 35mm slide and negative scanning.Never the less, once I figured out the glitches, these advanced feature provide excellent results.
Keep in mind the ink is expensive - about $80 bucks to replace all 6 carts.I haven't had the nerve to buy compatable inks but these are half the price and claim to be equal quality.
I definitely recommend the printer/scanner for a person demandingquality photo printing.Someone less technically inclined may have trouble installing and using the printer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Overall, very pleased with my RX500 Printer.
I purchased this printer last week, and I have tried out almost all of its features, and everything worked well as promised. The quality of pictures I printed on Epson photo paper are excellant. It does use a lot of ink, but all good photo printers use a lot of ink. The text quality is good (just as good as any other inkjet printer). My printer read my digital camera card perfectly. The scanner does a great job. The ability to print from old negatives and slides was an important feature for me, and RX500 does a great job recreating pictures from negatives without any developing chemicals. It's also a great copier, and there is no need for your computer to be on when you just need to create a copy of something. The print speed is a bit slow, but it's probably fine for most home use. The Epson Software is okay, but you may find other software products that offer more features and flexiblity.

I considered the Epson RX600 printer, but with all my (...), the Epson RX500 printer was half the cost of the RX600. The only difference between the RX600 and RX500 is that the RX600 offers the Small View Screen and the ablility to hook your digital camera directly into the printer, but I prefer to view my pictures on my computer monitor before I decide to print them, and I can just as easily hook my camera to my front USB port. Also, I read on another website that on rare occasions this Small View Screen burns-out which concerned me. Overall, I am pleased with the RX500 printer.

Note: Epson printers sometimes have problems with clogged print-heads after 1 to 2 years (I encountered one myself), and the Epson clean features may not resolve this problem. Therefore, I also considered a HP Printer (which I have owned before and have usually been happy with) as the HP is less likely to have these print-head problems, but the HP2510 or HP2610 multi-purpose-printer cost twice as much as the Epson RX500 after all the (...), and the HP does not recreate negatives or slides. Also, on the HP, you have to change the printer cartridge to print good photos. Both of these HP printers offer a Small View Screen and also Direct Faxing, but on the Epson RX500, you must use your computer fax software.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Printer
I got this printer when Epson had a $80 Mail in Rebate.That made the deal very sweet.But even without the Mail in Rebate this has got to be one of the better All In Ones.Photos printed on Epson 4x6 Premium paper comes out perfect, you would never have to go to get your pictures developed again.Also the ink dries right away on this paper so you don't have to wait to pick it up.Scanning is very fast, pictures come out great.Everything this printer does was nothing short of great.The only negative I would say is that Epson did not add a fax.Other then that it would be perfect.

5-0 out of 5 stars BESSTTT !ALL IN ONE PRINTER!
I love this printer, I have recently started digital and was going back and forth on printers for a few months and finally went with this printer. I couldnt have picked a better one. I was readin reviews saying the ink smears, well I dont know what ink they were using because the epson ink in the printer did not, put picture in running water and everything and the ink didnt smear. There is alot of settings on the printer but something easy enough to learn. The negative scanner works great! I printed a negative at best quality and compared it to a store print and mine was better! I guess stores are cutting down on ink. Overall the printer is great! If I had to say anything bad about the printer the only thing is it seems to use more black ink when printing a picture then the colors, but its still less expensive then printing a store or just as equal to. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars good product
I'm trying to hook up my Yamaha P120 with my PC.
I've spend about 3 hours now, tried about 10 different
variations of installation method including deleting
all the USB drivers on my PC...
Still can't get it to work.
Not sure if I got the lemon product or if I'm doing something wrong...
It drives me mad now..
What I like about?nice long USB cable that is plug and play.. only If it works!!
Well.. trying to think of other ways to get it to work...
Sent the tech support mail today.. If I don't get the result
back tomorrow.. the one star will stay...


Well got it working in 10 second by exchanging it...
dang... 5 hours wasted... and it was all because of a defective item.
Hate you ... whoever inspected this item...
Well, the sh*ts happens...
It seems like a good product..
Leason learned:
1. don't spent too much time trouble shooting a modern day devices that are suppose to be a plug and play.

2. Guitar Center, well sometimes, sell a defective product (I think what I bought was someone's return)...
But anyway, they are nice folks, I'll continue to use Guitar Center. This is an isolated incident.


Well.. would like to change the stars to 4 but don't know how..
So here it is * * * *

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent adapter for a PC and Clavinova Piano
I did setup this adapter on a Windows XP laptop for my daughter.
She is using it with Piano Suite Premiere software and a Clavinova piano.
Excellent compatibility.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't trust them
i've tried to use this on two macs. terrible results

m-audio does not have forums on their site.

there is a reason. their drivers are unreliable and highly incompatible.

absolutely refuse to provide any documentation nor do they accept returns.

if you value the stability of your computer, stay clear. stay well clear.

5-0 out of 5 stars so easy to use
I have been using this interface with both a Mac and a PC and it works well with both.Great product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for home use. Install the driver for your Mac!
This is a good adapter for home use. Having been a roadie, I can pretty confidently say the Midisport Uno's build quality isn't roadworthy -- the attached MIDI cables are about as thin as the RCA cables that come with most home audio equipment, nowhere near as tough as patch cords for a stage rig. But the average home user, who's not plugging and unplugging in a hurry and stepping on the equipment and such, should have no worries. I have one, and it works fine.

A note about appearance: My Uno's body (the oval part, smaller than an average computer mouse) is a deep translucent blue, rather than the opaque color in the current photo here on Amazon. Also, the cables are all one color, black, though the IN and OUT plugs are clearly labeled in molded lettering. There are three green LEDs: one that lights up when the computer recognizes the adapter, one for MIDI in signals, and one for MIDI out -- handy for troubleshooting.

I bought the Uno to connect my Roland alphaJuno-2 to my PowerBook and play with GarageBand. I took it out of the packaging (a rare treat: a molded clamshell-type plastic package that isn't heat-sealed, so it doesn't have to be cut to shreds to open) and hooked it up, and nothing happened. I initially thought that Mac OS X would recognize it automatically, so it took me a few minutes to realize I needed to install the driver software. Although there are drivers on the included CD-ROM, I downloaded the latest version from the manufacturer's web site, installed, and the Uno instantly lit up and GarageBand informed me (because I already had the Roland powered up) that a MIDI device was now connected. It's worked flawlessly since.

Simple to use; no extra cables to attach -- I think this is the perfect USB MIDI adapter for GarageBand users or anyone else connecting one MIDI keyboard to a computer at home. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good to be so cheap.
I'll be honest.I'm not a fan of HP.I worked in the IT field for a number of years, and they always caused me headaches.I bought this printer solely because it was cheap.

I guess I owe HP an apology now, because this little printer has been nearly perfect for me.The print speed and quality are very good for the price, and it's very compact.Unlike other printers that load the paper from a vertical tray in the back, this little DeskJet loads from the front, so the paper stays flat, and won't curl up or jam.

Admittedly, I don't print in large volume, so those who do will likely be better off with a laser printer, or a more ruggedly-built printer.I mainly need something to print ordinary text documents, emails, etc. from time to time.For that, this printer has been very good indeed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad printer
I could never get this thing to work. It has only printed a couple of pages the whole time i have owned it. Dont buy this unless you want a paper weight

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible service
My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call. We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great printer but not perfect
This is a good quality printer but there's still a few problems. First, ink only lasts about 100 to 120 pages so it's not good for constant printing, and second the description says "quiet and smooth", this printer does run fairly smooth but isn' that quiet. This printer also does not come with a USB cable needed to operate this printer so you'll have to buy a USB A/B cable.

But overall I would recomend this product for home/small office use

5-0 out of 5 stars A great printer for it's price
Even though it didn't include the usb cable it is a very good printer.It's b&w prints are of high quality.It prints 14ppm in b&w,which is quite fast.It just spits it out.It also is very quiet and small.Keep in mind the usb cable it needs is the Belkin Pro Series USB 2.0 Device Cable (USB A/USB B] NOT the Belkin F3U133-06 USB Device Cable ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Not all compatible models listed here!!

Firstly, this drum unit is compatible with the following models, most of which are not listed here on Amazon.

From the Brother web site:

For use with:
DCP1200, DCP1400, HL1230, HL1240, HL1250, HL1270N, HL1435, HL1440, HL1450, HL1470N, INTELLIFAX4100, INTELLIFAX4750, INTELLIFAX4750e, INTELLIFAX5750, INTELLIFAX5750e, MFC8300, MFC8500, MFC8600, MFC8700, MFC9600, MFC9700, MFC9800, MFCP2500

We have four Brother MFC-9700 models at my work, and they have been quite good.After about a year, a few of them have developed a vertical splotchy line.Upon inspection, there was excess toner on the green drum inside the drum unit.After wiping it off it would work for a while but came back soon after.

I learned that the drum unit is a wear and tear item and needs replacing once a year or less if you use it alot.As the reviewer above noted, the separate drum and toner units on the Brother Laser machines prevent you from having to buy both together each time you are out of toner, but you will need to replace the drum unit at some point.This solution is quite elegant as the drum unit has a much longer life than the toner cartridge and makes for cheaper toner cartridges.

This replacement drum will solve the vertical line and other issues.Great price here on Amazon as well, almost half the price our local printer fix-it shop wanted.

5-0 out of 5 stars Separate drum = longer life, better economy, quality
Brother's separate drum/toner cartridge arrangement makes for a longer life of the toner output equipment overall. Having been the owner of laser printers and inkjet printers for many years, I can say that Brother's solution is very nice. Here's why. In the arrangement used by HP, for example where the toner cartridge and drum are combined, if the drum is scratched, or otherwise damaged, the cartridge is ruined. That's the end; it must be replaced. In this arrangement, however, it is possible to fix the drum. Should a splotch appear, it's possible to wipe it off and even vacuum out the drum, if necessary. Sometimes when a cartridge is about to run out of toner, for example, it burps out a little extra toner. Because you can separate the drum from the cartridge, it's possible to clean this up instead of just throwing out the whole cartridge before it's really worn out. Another advantage along the same lines is being able to remove pieces of paper that get stuck inside the drum should a paper jam occur. Now as far as the economics of laser printer versus inkjet printer go, just figure it out for yourself. Do the math and come up with the best compromise of print yield, resolution, etc. In terms of comparing the cost of combined drum/toner cartridges versus the cost of separate drum/cartridges, I found that there was little difference on a per-print basis. Add to that the convenience of recovering from problems described at the beginning of my comments, and I am forced to conclude that the Brother solution is the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars The DR400 Brother Drum
The DR400 drum for Brother Printers provides crisp and clean printing. Comparing the printing of the Brother HL1240 using the DR400 drum to one of the high-end printers, I really see no difference in quality. One drawback to the DR400 is the pricetag. I have replaced two drums in the last year, but of course I do a high volume of printing. I guess for the money, the DR400 is a good buy. ... Read more

This is a great printer, but the lack of a papertray severly hampers productivity.You can open the manual feed door and stack paper there, but it hangs out and over time bends the paper etc.The paper tray is a 150 dollar option.If you want to buy this printer with the papertray already bundled, buy the 2550N.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Sound, Average Quality Materials
Few years ago I purchased the first version of those headphones. I used them extensively and it was time to buy new headphones. Here are the major differences between the old and new headphones:
1. Old plastic parts were simply better, new ones could use some sanding paper since edges are rough and unpleasant to the touch.
2. On the old headphones the metal headband was mounted on hinges so it could be flipped and one could wear them just like the behind-the-head models. Sadly the new model does not have this feature.
3. New headphones have something called "comfortZone" a setting where one can adjust the pressure that the headphones exert on ears. It's a nice thing but it could use a better mechanism because it won't stay in the same setting once headphones are removed from ears.

It still comes with the same carrying pouch which is really indispensable for carrying them in a suitcase. The pouch has drawstrings to close it easily.

Sound quality is good but I'm not a sound professional to compare them against anything else.

Overall I would recommend this product to those of us who travel and would like to have decent headphones.

5-0 out of 5 stars My choice for headphones "on the go"
I just received the headphones today, put them on - a got amazed. The sound was much better than I expected. Both bass and treble-wise. Most of what was said here regarding their look is true though; they sure do not look fancy.

I have to disagree with one of the reviewers who said that the headphones are not good for classical or jazz. It may take you a minute to figure out the right equalization (with the default "classical" the sound was surely horrible), but after that you get a very good sound from a piece that weighs nothing!

Go for these if you are looking for a good performance while "on the go" and do not need to show off with the fanciest and latest technology.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's OK...and by the way, not that ugly
1. The headphones are not that ugly. I was expecting some really kitschy, USSR-esque object. I have an all-black Sony headphone, and although they look different side-by-side, when you put them on, they don't look THAT different. No one has said anything or even noticed. (Actually, I really wanted these Koss headphones to be ugly because I think ugly = cool, and I was somewhat disappointed that they weren't!)

2. The sounds is decent, but not that much different from my $7 Sony headphones. The Koss does sound a bit richer, especially in the bass...but I would say it is 20% better. Too bad it's almost 5 times more expensive.

Not a bad pair of headphones, but I was expecting more for the $35.

5-0 out of 5 stars portapro family, your best choice for the price
I listened with portapro in J&R 9 years ago, and I was pretty surprised for the sound, and bought it
since then, I fell in love with portapro family series (PortaPro, SportaPro, KTX Pro)
they all sound excellent, full bass with its power, clean human voice and crisp treble, and they're all well-balanced
they're pretty good headphones for portable (portable CD/MD players, mp3 players, pdas, laptops, even radios)
I often suggest other customers to buy portapro, and let them hear themselves, and they're happy with the sound
the only weakness is: the cable, it breaks easily
for KTX Pro users, you can order PortaPro earpads to get same great sound as PortaPro

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for cheapy cans!!!
As a means for comparison, I own Westone's Um2, Shure's e3, Sennheiser's HD202 and PX200.My favorite is Westone's Um2, but at a pricepoint average of about 300 big ones, they are an unfair measure for comparison.Koss's portapros offer good sound and are well worth the purchase price of about 40 bucks.The packaging boasts incredible bass...euphoria for bassheads indeed.I, however, find the bass to be a tad bit overwhelming.Even after the "burn-in period," the bass is still to thick and unbalanced for my taste. I'm not so certain the phenomena of the "burn-in period" is an actual physical state that transpires after hours of usage.I think it's more a psychosomatic state...one becomes accustomed to the sound quality eventually as one continues to listen.Since these cans are engineered to deliver more bass, I can't really fault them on that principle.The portapros are certainly far better than Sennheiser's px200 which lack bass altogether.As for comfort and build quality, not very on both fronts.The adjustable pressure points on the headband are a nuisance after some time.Perhaps because I'm proned to headaches, but they really do squeeze tight at some point regardless of the setting.Build quality is 40 dollar build quality.I'm sure they'll go the distance with proper care.Be mindful of your hair, I've lost some by the root with the portapros.If you like a lot of bass, these cans are for you.For a much more balanced sound,give Sennheiser's HD202 a shot and of course my favorite, Westone's UM2.I didn't really mention Shure's e3 in this review because I fell out of love with them. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great audio interface at a great price!
Awsome for the price! This box is the key component in my home recording studio. Its a 24-bit interface and is up to its specs.I use it for studio recording doing track-at-a-time recording and a high end studio mic, and this box introduces nothing - just as it should!The hardware controls are simple and the software interface provides lots of easy-to-understand control over mixing and routing.

Plus, it comes with a limited version of Live Delta which is an extremely versatile and powerful program that can be used for multi-track recording, live DJ clip-sessions, and much more. It took me a week to go through this software and learn all its ins and outs, and when I was done, I sprung for the $225 upgrade to the full version. The M-Audio box cost $150, so for $375 I had a powerful hardware/software solution for a home studio that cost less than the price of the software alone ($500). A great deal!

There's a warning about not connecting to your computer when its turned on which is dissapointing.FireWire is supposed to be hot-pluggable.But, with my laptop, it works fine if I just close the cover so it goes to sleep, plug in the M-Audio box, turn on the box, and then wake up the laptop.

4-0 out of 5 stars Up and running in less than 15 minutes!
First impressions of this unit are stellar. I owned the PCI version of this card and was very happy with it. I fried it by accident. It gave me a good excuse to upgrade. The pricing on this unit is actually LESS than what I paid for the PCI card about 2 years ago. The Delta Control Panel interface is redesigned completely. But it doen't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. The frequency response is a few db better than the original too, which I like. I like the extra 1394 port to plug in my harddrive. You have to turn on the interface to get the harddrive to activate in Windows "My Computer" though. A "refresh" of My Computer is also required if you plug in the drive after booting. What I like especially over the PCI version is the GREAT DRIVERS. They actually come ON THE PROVIDED CD. Whoopee!! NO "dowload the latest driver at, blah blah blah!" ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy, fantastic results
The good:

Impeccable results - The photos are printed on high quality photo paper, just as if they came from a photo lab.Ease of use is (mostly) a snap - installation and printing is simple as pie.Color reproduction and detail is dead on.Printing speed is good.I couldn't be happier with the results it produces.

Cost - $150 for the printer is dirt cheap and you can grab a 100 print supply pack for $38, which works out to .38 per print.That's about double what you pay for digital prints at a store.But the .38 seems reasonable for all the enjoyment and coolness of printing your own photos, not to mention the convenience.

Design - It's a nice looking piece of equipment.A bit large in my opinion, but it's a welcome addition to my desktop.Build quality seems fine thus far, with no cheap looking or problematic components, but I'd need to own it for a few years before really speaking to the overall build quality.

The bad:

Color reproduction.Wait, didn't I just say the results were impeccable?Well, yes, they are.But figuring out how to get those results took me about five test prints.Plus I own a Mac (OS X 10.3) which makes monitor calibration a snap, have a decent idea of what I'm doing, and am printing with a good program (Photoshop Elements).I'm afraid some users might become frustrated when printing, as the colors just aren't going to come out as they do on screen unless the monitor's colors are properly calibrated and the print options are set correctly.The manual isn't much help here because the number of variables involved is astronomical.

Misleading packaging - Says it comes with everything you need to start printing immediately.Lie!IF your camera is Pictbridge enabled, this is true.Mine's not, so I have to use the computer.This requires a USB cable that is not included with the printer.

Verdict:

On the whole I love the thing and would reccommend it to anyone with the ability and/or patience to get it set up properly.Once you're at the point, it's photo heaven.


Read on for a few basic tips.I'm using an iMac G4 with OS X 10.3.

1.Calibrate your monitor!Find a good utility (one may have come with your computer or be available with your video card driver).Maybe XP has color calibration built in.I wouldn't know.You want 1.8 target gamma.This is standard on Macs.PC standard is 2.2.

2.Printing:Get a decent photo program.Might I reccommend Adobe Photoshop Elements?Easy to use, powerful, great for printing.It's $80, but you get what you pay for.Also, when you print, be sure you're using procedural intent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent printer - used 9 hours a dayfor 8 days!
Purchased this printer versus a Sony due to name brand issues.

WORKS like a champ!We are printing:

On average: 90 prints a day for a 9 hour day * 9 days = 810 prints so far.

It has never jammed.

I have had fairly good luck buying the printer cartridge/paper (40 sheets or 100 sheet / pack) in NYC.Prices for the 40 print pack: $17.00 at J and R to as much as $25.00 at Compusa Midtown. Amazon sells the 100 print pack are $30.00 (through Adorama).

Print cartridge is easy to change (takes seconds).

Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mac OS compatible. Best of all Archival Quality.
One of the previous reviewers states that this was not Mac OS compatible. It is compatible with OS 10.3. I tried it with several computers using OS 10.2.8 and it did not work. Even called customer support. No dice. I think that they tried writing another driver for 10.2.8 but it still did not work. I upgraded to 10.3 and it works great.

There have been many comments about the colors being off. I have used this with 3 Macs and the colors are right on. There may be a slight problem with the brightness but otherwise the colors are well approximated. I noticed that those who complained were using Windows. Color management may be a little trickier on a Wintel than a Mac. I would consider calling customer support of either the computer maker or that of Olympus.

Ctein of Photo Techniques reviewed the P400 about 2 years ago. He had only praises for the prints. But the best part about the print is it's archival quality. Dye Sublimation with an overcoat apparently has a track record for good archival quality. Meaning it will not fade and will maintain it's image quality given certain parameters of humidity, heat, and light exposure. This is a same process that Kodak uses. I do not see the point of printing something only for it to fade on you a few years later. There a lot of claims of archival quality among other printer makers but personally, I do not know how true they are and if they have been proven.

Image quality is great. I really looks like a regular print from a photo processing shop. Colors are crisp and they are continous tone. No pixilation or lines to speak of at all. I have only been using it for snapshots printed from iphoto. I have not used adobe photoshop yet. I can't wait. Have not used it with pictbridge.

Basically, the lost star was for initially stating Olympus would not support the Mac OS then turn around and make a non-working driver for 10.2

2-0 out of 5 stars Printer is OK, but What if there are Problems?
The printer is OK.Its 6X4 prints are adequate.Colors are vibrant even if they are not quite true, and the entire system is easy to use.With so many upsides, there must be a few downsides to rate only two stars!The first is simply that if something goes wrong, the only recourse is to send it back to the manufacturer for maintenance.As the company does not pay for packing or shipping, you must pay the full bill.This policy includes problems for a printer during its first package of paper!There is no user maintenance available.The second problem is the printer's use of color management.As another reviewer noted, what you see is not what you get.He claimed that his black and whites were sepia toned.Mine are blue tinted -- just a hint.This is because I cannot fully control the gray scales via color management software.Technical support in this area was totally non-existant.Olympus should have paid more attention to color management and at least designed the printer for a particular color management scheme (such as sRBG or Adobe 1998, or ...).
While the color management problem might be considered "only for the professional", most people will not too happy when the colors they see on the screen are not what they get on the print.This is the case with the P-10.However, the lack of user maintenance and the lack of product support make this product a potentially poor choice among home consumers.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for the serious
The P-10 is an adequate printer.If you base all that on the cost per picture, ease of use, and general quality.The down sides are more technical, but add up in the end.

First there is not XP digital signature; that cause my system to hang a couple of time when installing the driver.

IT DOES NOT PRINT WHAT COLORS ARE ON THE SCREEN.I am not just talking adjustment of contrast, brightness, or such.We are talking significant color shifts. If you are using an aim and shoot camera, it will probably be ok.If you use any program to adjust the picture, just be ready for some frustration.

In the end, when I was done, tweaking the pictures and the printer to get a print that was pleasing to the eye, the cost went up.I would print an average of four prints just to get the one I wanted.

In all honesty, I probably should have started with a higher end to begin with.This is adequate if you are not that meticulous about your photos.The colors are deep and vibrant; a very nice sharp and detail finish.It will not do well with Black and White.You end up with a sepia tint.

If cost is not that much of an issue, start with the Canon CP-330. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me - Windows 2000, 4 year old IBM thinkpad
Lotsa folks seem to be having a problem with this card.
Worked for me even with an older laptop and an ancient install of Win2k. Took me 5 minutes to select the right settings. After that I was up and running. I walked around the house with the laptop; signal strength was solid.
I guess this card works well with some laptop configs and not with others. I got lucky.

2-0 out of 5 stars Pain with Win XP (home)
For some reason, the version 4 of this card never worked with my Win XP home edition. The driver Linksys provided would cause my laptop to, at best, to stall and crash at other times. I just could not get it to work. My room-mate also had one (Win XP Pro). The driver didn't cause any problem on his system but he had other problems. For one the card would not find or connect to the access point if it's right next to it!! I would strongly suggest products of other brands as opposed to Linksys (I had a linksys access point which I got rid off!!)

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrendous
Apparently, the dowloaded driver created an MSVCRT.DLL:rtlgetntversion error message which froze my Win 98 machine upon restart.Three hour-long conversations with hardworking Compaq support staff in India and my poor machine remains stuck in some form of safe mode. I await a call from "second-tier" support.
Linksys staff were quick to blame Windows and offered no support.
Buy something else.

1-0 out of 5 stars Frustrations galore
Signal strength starts to drop off after just 10 feet, and the access point seems to randomly lose contact with the internet even when wired connections using the same lines have no problems. Extremely frustrating - you need to reset the connection frequently and on an hp PC with XP, using "repair connection" seems to hang the system more often than fix the problem. I'm in the market for something - anything - else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fine product, but range of Access Point has disappointed
I have used this product for several years with no problems. I have found customer support to be helpful, available and (usually) knowledgable.

(Linksys wireless access point has also been fine, although I have been a little disappointed about range.We get a low signal (but still usable) at 50 feet. Not impressive, but servicable.) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Brother Customer Service Horrible!!!
I had the twin of this model, the 420CN. The only difference between the 2 is the 420CN has a photo center which at the time I thought was a great deal so I wouldn't have to kneel down and plug my digital camera into the back of my computer. Now I've found out that there are devices you can purchase that will do this. The 5440CN has a better resolution scanner, larger capacity document feed and a faster fax modem. These are the biggest differences. I had bought the 420CN. It gave me error messages after installing the ink cartridges. I called Brother tech support in case I was doing something wrong. They walked me throught the process again and confirmed the unit was defective. They offered to send me out another one immediately and I could return the defective unit via Fedex. The replacement model looked refurbished. It came in a plain cardboard box with no advertising stickers on the unit like a new one has. So did I pay full retail price for a refurbished unit? But this is the BIG PROBLEM!!!!!! I'm not happy with the quality of the scanner after using it. The retailer will not return the unit because it is not in ORIGINAL PACKAGING!!! I informed Brother of this situation and told them I would like to get one of THEIR units, the 5440CN instead of the 420CN which is the same price. They would not swap it!!! They said they only swap out defective models for the same model number!! Their actions,however, sending me a refurbished unit as a replacement unit for a brand new one is an OUTRAGE!!! Because of this I cannot return this unit which is less than a week old back to the retailer!! I'm considering Small claims court against a corporation. Think twice no three times at least before buying from Brother on second thought don't buy at all from them. If they treat a brand new customer like this how do you think they are going to treat you down the line???

4-0 out of 5 stars Mixed PC Mac Enviroment
This all in one was a breeze (about 10 minutes)to install under Mac 10.3.8.I followed the instructions in the quick start manual and made sure to restart my machine when all done.The same install under Windows XP Pro took almost and hour.This machine is connected through the ethernet option and has worked great.There are two PC and three Macs that share this machine all without problems. Reading the quickstart guide and the manual are a must to an easy set up with this machine.I used the DHCP defualt setting in the machine for networking purposes.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mac users-BEWARE
After purchasing this useless doorstop to use with my G3 imac w/ OSX 10.2.8, it took forever to figure out a work-around to get the printer installed when the setup instructions gave no guidance about Brother's 'Device Selector' program, which pops up every time you restart, asking for an ip address. Wasted over an hour on the phone with tech support, only to be told that d.s. was only a useless annoyance that served no purpose, but since the tech had no knowledge of how to determine the ip address of the 'printer', I would just have to live with the annoyance. Printed nice quality on plain paper, except that it printed everything IN MIRROR IMAGE. Driver update to correct that, once installed, rendered the printer invisible to the system. Tech couldn't figure that out either, then advised that he would have to have the mac 'expert' call me back. THE NEXT DAY. The best part was when the tech suggested I should just forego network printing, and just stick to USB if I wanted the printer to actually work. Promises, promises-was looking forward to using what appeared to be a full featured multi-function printer, ended up shipping it back. Don't waste your time with this clunker!

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice, solidly built
I got old, first-generation flatbed and sheetfed scanners (6-8 years old) clogging up my desktop, so I started out looking for an inexpensive replacement.After extensive research, I came down on two AIO choices--Brother MFC-5440 and HP Officejet 5510.

I like the Brother better because it's more solidly built.The HP should print better photos, but these days you can just buy a cheap high-quality photo printer.Since I already have a photo printer, so photo printing capability is not my priority. Don't take me wrong. The brother still prints fairly good photos.

As I said, scanning is my priority.I was not disappointed. The Brother scans much faster than my old flatbed and the images are far better than my sheetfed.I like the 35 page ADF; the HP Officejet has only a 20 page ADF.What's more, the Brother comes with PaperPort, which I've been using for a long time.The HP Officejet 5510 doesn't come with it, and I'm not even sure whether PaperPort works with it at all.

Lastly, at this price range, you can't get an AIO with network capability.

In a word, I'm satisfied with the Brother MFC-5440CN. It's well-built and well-designed. This is my second Brother home office product I own.While they might not excel in photo printing, overall I think they make good solid office products.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent printer, scanner, fax
This is an excellent printer/scanner/fax for the money. I had purchased this as a replacement to an extremely problematic HP 5110.

Install: Installation was extremely easy. Just follow the directions and everything works within about 30 minutes. I really can't stress enough how easy it was to setup this printer. Whether you set it up with a standard USB connection or ethernet/network, the software does everything for you and the software install only takes around 5 minutes.

Software: The software is really simple and easy to use. The downside to this is that it is somewhat too simple. For advanced users that want more options and customizability, they wont find it here. Also, having the preset scan buttons is a little annoying if you like to change your scan options a lot.

I should also note that you can scan/copy things using either your computer or the buttons on the unit. This is very very smooth and allows you do be able to scan things without having to navigate to the ControlCenter on your PC. If you set up the printer on the network it will also even allow you to pick which PC to send the files to.

Printer: Print quality is right on for this price range. This is not a photo printer, but nevertheless printing onto photo quality paper isnt bad. But at the prices you can get digital photos developed at Walmart or Target nowadays, it doesnt really matter.

Scanner: Scan quality is great, scans up to 6000x1200 DPI. Even 300x300 DPI looks great.

Fax: Unfortunately, I cannot comment on this as I have no reason to fax anyone. But if the scan/print quality is any indication, this would work seamlessly as well.

Ink: This printer uses individual C/M/Y/K cartridges. So when one color runs out, you only have to replace that color. The size of the ink cartridges is pretty big, too, so they last longer. The downside to this is that the print head is not replaceable since they are not part of the print cartridges. So you pretty much have to replace the entire printer when it goes out.

Networking: Another GREAT reason to buy this product is that is comes with built-in networking. This is completely unheard of in other brands in this price range and greatly adds to the value of this printer. You can set it up for wireless use or wire it directly to your router/hub. You can also scan images in and send it to any computer on your network ... directly from the printer!

Price: This is in the $ 100-150 price range, which is more or less the low range for AIO printers. In this range, you pretty much have to choose from Lexmark, HP and Brother. Lexmark printers in this range are really cheap and their ink cartridges are overpriced. HP is very problematic, have smaller ink cartridges and are also overpriced. Overall, Brother is the best buy.

Overall: I'm in love. Not only is this the best printer for the money, but this is a GREAT printer/scanner PERIOD. After this experience all my future printers will be Brother brand. I will never buy Lexmark/HP/etc ever again. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars If I could give zero stars, I would
I had a Hewlett Packard 540 printer from 1994 and that works better than the 1300.I have put 20 year old pieces of paper, used, recycled, and I never had a problem with the 540 that I do with a 1300.I work in a school office and I have had nothing but problems with removing jammed paper.If it's stuck somewhere and you need to remove it, but it is impossible without damaging the rollers to prevent the paper jam in the machine.Somehow I think Hewlett Packard lost its way in making printers.Since I work in an office, it is impossible to really depend on the 1300 printer for assurance.Once there is a jam and a crackling sound, get ready to buy a new printer.It is very important for people who design printers to place emphasis on using recycable paper and the printer's longevity.For now, I have a 540 at home which has lasted over 10 years without needing service.There tells me something is wrong with this picture when an old printer like 540 is better than a 1300 ten years later.Something is wrong with the price.I would not spend so much money on a printer that will break after a few months.If you need a dependable productive printer, this is thenot one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Junk
After just a few months, the print began to fade from the center of pages. HP warranty provided for a new "reconditioned" machine to be sent to me; same problem, right out of the box. Avoid this one at all costs.

5-0 out of 5 stars No regrets
Did lots of research before deciding to buy.I have a Mac system and have heard from others that printer support from other companies are sometimes lacking or slow.Since OS X has major updates during the year, some have had printer issues when drivers are missing in the updates.Decided to stay with HP and compared to my Laserjet 5MP, this printer is 10x faster.Able to print double sided manually and even hooked up the printer via my wireless network (Airport Express).Cost was a little more than I initally wanted, but I have no regrets at this time.Fast printer, compatible with my system, and no headaches with set up.What more could I ask?

4-0 out of 5 stars Replaced by LaserJet 1320
If you are looking to buy LaserJet 1300 (or its cheaper sibling, 1150), take a look at newly released LaserJet 1160 and 1320. They address some of 1150 and 1300's biggest shortcomings while being nicer looking. I have used LaserJet 1300 for several months and while I think it is a decent printer, I am not a fan of protruding paper tray (it reminds me of old DeskJet printers) and its output bin tends to curl papers when 50 or so pages are stacked.

After playing with both 1160 and 1320, I got 1160 (refer to my LaserJet 1160 Amazon review). Both 1160 and 1320 look more like a laser printer while still maintaining small footprint. LED status lights are still cryptic, but they are now clearly labeled. Although multifunction input tray can accept only 1 sheet at a time (1150 and 1300 accepted 10 sheets), the paper handling is improved overall and output bin is more robust. And output quality is crispier, with better defined text and graphics.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good For The Home Office User
I've had this printer for about a year and have been pleased with it. It's a good little printer that rarely jams or causes any sort of trouble. The one big negative is the manual feeder on this printer is terrible. You can waste three sheets of labels just to get one decent one printed out that isn't crooked. That's a big drawback if you print any sort of label sheet or index sheet regularly. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat limited, but satisfying results
The printer can stand alone and isn't difficult to use. It is far easier, however, to use in conjunction with a computer. Creating and printing a label takes only minutes. The results are good, but your CDs have to be "perfectly" flat.Minor, invisibile flaws on the CD surface or any manufacturer printing or design, even when "transparent," yield very poor results. On my first day of trials, I got 4 of 7 CD labels to look good. The 3 poorer ones had faded or incomplete printing due to CD surface imperfections. I would be wary of buying CDs over the internet since you can't see what kind of surface they might have. Rough, textured surfaces likewise yield poor results. I plan on buying my CDs locally, but only generic brands tend to have that "slick as a baby's behind" title surface that is needed. Now, it sounds like I am not pleased, but I really do like this label system. J&R had very affordable ink prices (under $7.00; they were $19 locally!) The CDs that came out good really were pleasing, especially since they contain my home studio recordings. This is so much better than paper labels!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pros & Cons
I got this printer soley for my small bussiness. I wanted a proffesional look on my DVDs for a good price. This pinter will print you a full label (that is top & bottom) for around 50 cents a disc. I was able to take it out of the box, put the bateeries in and print a test label on the practice disc in under 5 minutes. If you are on the move and want a proffesional label look, then this is a pretty good idea.

Pros:
1. Cheaper cost per label than ink and paper.
2. Easy software & interface.
3. Can save templates made on the unit in the internal memory (about 100 files can be saved)
4. prints one label fairly fast
5. Different color cartidges are the same price as the black cartidges.
6. Can print at least 40+ discs with set of batteries (I just past forty discs and I am still going)
7. Has an auto turn off after a few minutes of inactivity.
8. "wireless" capability (meaning no Ac or printer cables)
9. Has a nice little library of images on the unit.

Cons:
1. Flimsy, drawer doesn't shut as precise as it should
2. Unit is complicated
3. Can't store templates from computer to internal memory on unit.
4. Holds only 1 Ribbon
5. You have to turn the CD/DVD around to print other side. (could it really have been that much more complicated (expensive)to either put another head or a motor to move the disc?)
6. Not always a parralel print between top and botton labels.
7. Don't even try to print photos.
8. Doesn't come with an adapter.
9. Have to label the disc before you burn it.

I bought the other model right below this one (you have to use a computer to print with it)and it came with an AC adapter, even though it said "optional" on the box. This box also says"optional", but does not contain one! This reall made me ticked, but so far the batteries have done really well, but Casio could have a least added a lousy adapter.

When using this unit make sur you buy CDs/DVDs that have nothing stamped on the front of the disc, this will give you an unobstructive printing area. Another neat thing is, I sometimes use black colored DVDs and I use the silver ribbon cartridge to print on them, this gets people attention, especially when you are doing something to do with marketing.
The software has nice feature of printing a text file that contains everything on a disc. I have taken a majority of mydata disc and have used this feature. I then label the text file that same as the disc and save it to my computer. I also have another software program that seaches WITHIN files and this is nice when searching for a certain file. So when the search come up finding you file in a certain text file, you know what disc & folder to find that file. Follow me?
Although, the software could use a couple of things, like the addition of guides (lines that help you line up text and/or pictures) Or the abilit to 'Save As' instead of hitting save then Save as.
Conclusion:
Overall the unit works well for low volume labels at any given time. It has a professional label look on the CD/DVD. The software is easy to use. And it does great for portability

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than a marker pen
A friend heard I was planning to purchase a printer for labeling DVDs and CDs, so he gave me his Casio DC-75 to try out. Actually, the exact words were, "If you can make use of this, you can have it." I gave it back after about a week in case he could find someone else who wanted it.

In all fairness, the CW-75 is a nice little thermal printer. It's a great alternative to using a marker pen or sticky label on a disk. But, I'm giving it only 3 stars because although I think it does very well at printing text, other printers that cost less offer more features and user options.

The CW-75's lettering is excellent as long as the disk has a perfectly smooth surface. If the disk surface has any sort of texture, you'll get breaks in the lettering. The printer has a variety of built-in templates, fonts, and standard symbols. It can print in colors, as long as it's one solid color at a time. (This printer uses a ribbon cartridge, so if, for example, you want to change from black to red, you have to take out the black ribbon and insert a red ribbon.) You don't need a computer to use the printer, but using it with a computer (PC only, not Mac) gives you more flexibility.

Altho the CW-75 keyboard looks extremely complicated, after using it a bit -- along with reading the relatively small manual -- I'd say a person doesn't need to be technically oriented to be printing out sharp looking disks in a short time. Sharp text, that is. If you're hoping to print a full color picture, the CW-75 won't do it for you.

For less (as of Nov. 1, '04) than the price of the CW-75, there's the Epson Stylus Photo R200. It not only prints text and up to full photo quality onletter and legal size paper, it can also print directly on CD/DVDs that have an inkjet-printable surface. With the included software -- or software available from other sources -- you can print full color photos, text, graphics and whatever else you want anywhere on a disk.Compare that to the CW-75 which pretty much limits you to printing text and simple line art in one color, unless you want to play around swapping color print ribbon cartridges.

That's why I gave the CW-75 back to my friend and purchased an Epson R200 here at Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor results
I was hoping for a neat and simple way to print titles on my CD-R and DVD collections. I found neither with the Casio Disc Printer.

I tried a total of 15 CD-R's before returning the item because I could only get accurate printing on 6 of the discs.I was trying media from Maxell,Sony, Memorex and while the printer would work on some brands once it would fail the next time.

Also the printing area is very small.I believe it is only 1/2" high on the top and bottom.It is very difficult to get much information on the disc except fot the Title and Artist.

For now I have gone back to labeling by hand, but if anyone can tell me of a better solution I would love to try it.

4-0 out of 5 stars An ingenious device...
I have found this disc title printer to be quite useful.As long as you buy blank CD/DVD's that have little preprinted writing on the front, you will have absolutely no problem printing quality, professional-looking labels on your discs.I rarely use the PC interface with the printer, instead opting to use the built-in screen for formatting my discs.Regardless, I have had no problems with this unit, and have found it to be very useful. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars distorted sound
I just purchased these cables but the sound is so distorted I'm unable to use them?? Any other options to hook up my Ipod to my stereo??

2-0 out of 5 stars Uncoils easily .... get THXIMINI8 instead
I bought this last year at the apple store in soho nyc for about $33 w/NY tax. I don't know what I was thinking but I had money to splurge then.

I WAS THRILLED though when I heard the sound it produced through my subwoofer/stereo system. It sounds better than the other non monster cables connected to my subwoofer from my dvd system.

BUT

the coiling around the wire and underneath the contact is hanging loose on one. I should be angry! In less than 3 months this happened, and I DID NOT yank the cord out ever.

Do as previous reviewer said, get the original Monster THX Mini to RCA Interconnect Cable. Search underTHXIMINI8. It's about $12 right now on amazon, doesn't come with a free pouch but is way cheaper. It's also smaller and less clunky than this one. I hate the way the contacts are so chunky It's not appealing to the eye. Trust me, they didn't figure the ergonomics on this one either because it's not flattened for your fingers like the THXIMINI8.

The only thing I liked really with this was the sound and the "free" little pouch. It's really like I paid $15 extra bucks for the "free" pouch anyway since it's all a marketing ploy. NICE JOB Apple & Monster!

1-0 out of 5 stars You Probably Already Have the Cable You Need
If you have a digital camera, it probably came with a cable for connecting the camera to your television.This "Y" cable can also be use to connect your iPod to your computer.The three-connector cable that came with your digital video camera will not work...

5-0 out of 5 stars ATTENTION: YOU CAN GET THE SAME CABLE FOR HALF THE PRICE
Amazon.com also sells this exact same cable for less than half the price of the iCable.Some marketing genius at Monster Cables took their THX-certified RCA-to-mini 8 foot cable, gave it white connectors, called it an iCable to appeal to iPod users, and then doubled the cable's price.

Do an Amazon search for THXIMINI8 and get that cable instead.It's the same high quality as this one, but doesn't have the stylish iPod white connectors though.

I have two, one connected to my home stereo receiver, and one wired into my car's audio system.I am absolutely thrilled with the high quality audio the cable provides, especially for such a low price.I tried the El Cheapo cable from Radio Shack, and there is a noticeable difference on my (admittedly high end) home and car audio systems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't pay for style over substance!
Monster makes good cables and often has products other people don't have, but this isn't the case here. This is a very common cable available in your choice of lengths from stereo and electronic stores. I have an iPod and a Bose home theater system and get perfect sound from the 6-foot, $6 version from Radio Shack. All you need is a stereo mini-plug on one end (plugs into the top of the iPod) and RCA red and white stereo jacks on the other (plug into the "input" jacks on your stereo). ... Read more
