5-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST EPSON PRINTERS EVER MADE
I have owned my Epson Stylus 1280 for over a year and a half now and have never once experienced any type of problem with this unit what so ever! I only use aftermarket Abacus Ink and have yet to have a glogged printhead issue. I use this printer to print images taken from my Olympus C 8080 widezoom at 8 megs.
The printouts are perfect! Epson has just released a new driver for XP which can be downloaded at the Epson site to bring this 1280's resolutions all the way upto 5620 x 720!

4-0 out of 5 stars The 5th star would be Linux drivers from Epson
My 1280 died over the weekend.So I did some shopping and bought an HP Photosmart 7760.I figured I'd save some money and wait to get a larger-format printer later.

It was a bad move.The HP is going back, and I've ordered a second 1280.I used my first one hard.For two years.I used it for everything -- normal documents, and lots and lots of digital artwork on matte paper.

Amazon currently has about the best price on ink cartridges and matte paper around.

I did my own tests on the inks -- both water resistance and ultraviolet light resistance.My Bic pen that marked the sample faded in two weeks of sunlight, but not my printed image!(I put a control in my filing cabinet to compare to.)I will not buy compatible cartridges, because I've already investigated the quality of the Epson ink and paper myself.I sell what I print for $185 a page.Sometimes a little less.With framing, more.

If you are a Linux user (and if you don't know what that means or you aren't sure, you can disregard this), you are in for a tough trip.The gimp-print drivers don't come close to matching the Epson Windows drivers for color quality.Not one little bit.Bug Epson about this.There are some adjustments possible with gimp-print, but it would be entirely trial-and-error.

I don't suggest going to the HP side to fix the Linux problem.HP says they "support" over 200 printers with Linux drivers, but the one I happened to try was abysmal.It couldn't even center the image on the page, Gimp didn't work at all, and neither did OpenOffice.At least with my Epson 1280, I have a little printing support (albeit with crummy colors).

If you've used other Epson printers, the 1280 might have slightly different color rendering.I had a Stylus Photo 820 which produced beautiful blues for sky and water.On the Stylus Photo 1280 (under Windows -- we're no longer on the Linux subject), these blues were more grey.I wish the 1280 came with the 820's coloring.

One other thing I like about the 1280:you can print very close to the bottom of the page.Not all the way, but closer than many other printers.This is very helpful.

I wish Epson made an affordable six-color printer like the 1280 with a wider format, perhaps 17" or 22".In my view, they don't.

One warning; Epson claims that the 1280 can print up to 13" x 44".I haven't found a supplier for paper that size.Epson doesn't seem to sell any.At least not in matte finish.

I never print glossy stuff (longevity considerations), so don't consider me to be any kind of authority on glossy stuff.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
I just bought the 1280 and I am extremly disappointed. I had a Canon i9100 for a couple of weeks, but returned it because it didn't print 11x14 borderless prints. The Epson did, so I bought it. Upon comparing the Canon i9100 to the Epson 1280, there really is no comparison. The Canon has vivid, and true color, the Epson prints couldn't come close to the Canon prints no matter what I did. The Canon is lightning fast. Even at it's highest resolution settings. The Epson is painstakingly slow at any setting other than draft mode. I was really hoping the Epson would work out for me, but no such luck. I'm returning the Epson and re-purchasing the Canon i9100. I'll just have to print out at 11x17 and trim off three inches when I need 11x14 prints. The $100 price difference for the Canon is well worth it.

1-0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment
I've had my printer now for 1.5 years, and have constantly battled with it.I've returned 3 and received 3 refurbished units, all with the same problems...(banding, ink randomly dropped on the photos, constant need to clean the print heads, etc.)...I thought it might be the USB connection, but saw no improvement when I switched it to the parallel port.I do think, however, that it has to do with the computer-printer interface, to have the same problem with 4 different units.I have 80-100 pages that printed so badly that I couldn't use them, which is pretty expensive given the amount of ink the printer consumes.Epson support was of very little help.I too have a friend who gets WONDERFUL prints off of her Epson 1280, but can't figure out why I don't get the same results...

2-0 out of 5 stars everyone else's is better than mine...
i am a design student and bought the 1280 because i could print 11X17's on it. i have had problems with faint horizontal lines and leaking cartridges, jammed heads just after i finished cleaning them, etc. i have a friend at school who also uses this model, and the same epson inks and epson paper as i do, and her print quality is much better than mine. the problems i've had come and go, and when i've gotten fed up, and called epson to replace it (within my warranty period) they wouldn't, saying it's the usb port that is the problem (i haven't had any other problems with the usb port on any other electronics). like i said, it usually works well, but it seems like when i need it the most, it fails for me. i wouldn'tpurchase it again. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The Deskjet 9650 color printer offers impressive, photo-quality results with up to 4,800-optimized dpi using HP's PhotoREt IV and PhotoREt III technologies (for six- and four-ink printing, respectively). Now you can print laser-quality black text at up to 20 pages per minute and high-resolution color pages at 15 ppm, in addition to printing fade-resistant photos with true-to-life colors. (Actual print speeds will vary.)

The Deskjet 9650 is well suited to print projects on different paper types and sizes, including plain and photo paper, transparencies, labels, iron-on transfers, up to 13-by-19-inch posters. An adjustable tray accommodates 11-by-17-inch paper, and the printer will even produce borderless images--great for pictures and postcards.

Use four-ink printing for spreadsheets, presentations, and everyday business needs, then switch to six-ink printing for vibrant photos and fine-quality images. A low-ink indicator will warn you when replacement time is nigh.

To help you further simplify your work, the 9650 comes ready for optional two-sided printing and is compatible with wireless networking hardware through HP JetDirect accessories (not included).

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.

1-0 out of 5 stars The biggest piece of garbage
This printer is the biggest piece of garbage I have ever owned! Every time I print, it sounds like all of the springs are about to explode out of the side of the thing. Half of the time it will just spit out a blank piece of paper. The rest of the time it grabs anywhere from 2-6 sheets and spits THEM out! I've reverted to using my old $100 722C for everything other than 11x17. What a joke!

I'm going to find another printer by epson or someone else and actually throw this one in the dumpster.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Printer Ever and the Support to Match
Ever since I opened the box to this printer, which I've had for a year, I've been overwhelmed with noise. It's loud and shakes when printing. The printer is slow, uses too much ink, and doesn't print photos on glossy paper well. I use this printer in my office to print drawings on 11 x 17 paper quite often. After one year, the text is printing at an angle, the feed takes more than one sheet of paper at a time, and the ink cartridges randomly get stuck at each side during printing and between pages. I spent the past 75 minutes on the phone with HP trying to get help for the printer's problems and it was beyond frustrating. I've never had a problem with HP printers but this one kills their reputation for me. Oh yeah, and the laserjet 4101 doesn't help improve it. Does anyone else miss the 1120C and 1220C? They were perfect. So much for the "upgrade".

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Happy with HP or Fedex
I have not even got a chance to test this printer b/c when I opened the box there were no ink cartridges. I check everything and they were no where to be found. This is after fedex took three tries to find my address, which we get deliveries to about 2-3 times a week. Anyway I called HP, and they informed me that they would have to replace the whole printer in order for me to get those cartridges. Fedex would have to come to pick it up and then a new one would be delivered to me, no way! I decided to get my money back and return the printer. The sales rep was nice and she gave me no problem with the return. However I'm still waiting for the printer to be pick up and my credit card refunded so lets see how that goes. This marked the first and last time I will ever buy an HP product. I will purchase the canon i9900 instead and it got much better reviews. (note I bought the 9650 off of hpshopping.com and not amazon.com)

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love it
This is an awesome printer for the price I paid.The other reviews that I have seen ignore a few things about this printer. First off, any wide format printer is going to use a lot of ink.Find the ink kits and learn how to refill your cartridges. It'll save you a ton of money. The cartridges may be small, compared to some other printers, but they are quite refillable, much more so than the larger HP cartridges I have used in the past. The printer manufacturers don't want you to know about that. I know as I have been refilling the same cartridges this printer uses for 2 years already. Having had experience with my HP Deskjet 5550, I have only purchased one extra cartridge in the last 2 years. I finally wore out the #57 Tricolor cartridge.This printer comes with all 3 of them. My 5550 only came with 2.

Secondly. if you use the maximum dpi setting, the printer is slow. But I have found that the best setting is excellent, at 600 by 600 dpi, it takes about 5 minutes to do a 12 by 18 inch print. Unless you have a 14 megapixel camera. this print resolution is beyond your 5 megapixel camera to begin with. And, if you have a source that can generate a true 4800 dpi print, I have seen a review that states that it is worth the wait. I believe the claim.

Since I bought the printer, I have only been able to get my hands on 12 by 18 inch plain paper,(an artist's sketch pad at Wal Mart). The results on this paper are stunning. I can't wait to geta hold of some Super B 13 by 19 inch glossy. One of the reasons I prefer this type of printer over the likes of Canon and Epson, which both make printers of this type, is the ability to refill the cartridges. Don't try it with theirs. Once you clog the print head, it'll cost you more than the printers worth to replace it. The HP's have the print head built into the cartridge, so if it ends up bad, you just need a new cartridge.The only reason I can think of not to buy this printer is if you don't want to be bothered with refilling the cartridges. They can be refilled up to 18 or more times.

I picked this unit up as a factory recertified unit that came with the full 1 year warranty, for half the list price of the HP msrp. Just a guess on my part, but I think a lot of these were sent back due to issues with the XP drivers that had some flaws. I can't find a disagreeable issue with this printer and I have had it for a week now and have printed a couple of dozen 12 by 18 inch prints, using both the new and my own refilled cartridges.

By the way, I also use Windows ME, like a reviewer below. But I won't end up with the same issues of the ink warnings, because I know how to fool the printers cartridge memory. It can only remember 2 of the same carts, and it's easy to find the info on how to reset the ink level indicators. As far as the scrapbooker below, he must not have set up this printer properly. The photo results are incredible,on plain paper, even with just the black and tricolor cartridges. I have used an HP 1220c also, and I can say that this printer is better on photos than the 1220c. However, each person has their own views, and also their own ways of trying things out. This printer has a lot of options. Be sure to check them out. The auto settings work very well, but you have to select things like the "Best" setting. You can custom establish your favorite settings as default in the toolbox. Otherwise it might do a fast draft print, which sounds like the corrugated cardboard complaint below.

So far, I highly recommend this one.I've always wanted a printer that I could frame a print and view it from across the room, or from the next room for that matter, and not need to walk over to figure out what it is a picture of. These prints are large enought to satisfy that desire, you won't beleive the difference, compared to an 8.5 by 11.5 inch print.

Now, if I don't run out of wall space and money for more frames a Wal Mart.........? ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars This model is no good.
I own a Lexmark X5270 and love it.Unfortunately, it does not have a stand-a-lone fax capability, so I eagerly looked forward to getting the X7170.It prints a lot faster than the earlier model and has a document feeder, but it refuses to scan and comes with defective software (graphics programs couldn't acquire an image).After 4 hrs., tech support was no help.The buttons on the machine didn't work properly and even using the software on the computer was a hit or miss proposition.Do yourself a favor and look at another brand until Lexmark can get its act together. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!
This is the worst purchase I've ever made.Not only are the ink cartridges EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE, they do not last very long.My printer had to be serviced twice in less than 2 years, and the last time they told me they had to replace the head, which was discontinued and would take 45 days to get.Needless to say the price for the head plus the service charge would be higher than buying a new one.So, I'm stuck with a two year old printer and two new color ink cartridges, and there is nothing I can do.THIS IS THE LAST TIME I'M BUYING AN EPSON PRINTER!!!Better of with an HP.

1-0 out of 5 stars worthless piece of junk
i got this printer for free with my imac. it produced a handful of good photos before going completely useless on me. it seems like if you don't use it every day, the ink just dries up or jams the heads or something, so you have to run the utility and clean the heads about 20 times before the ink starts flowing again. by which time the cartridges are empty. like other reviewers, i spend about 2 hours cleaning the heads and wasting paper on test pages before i can ever actually use this printer for any meaningful outputs. and i don't mean photos, i'm just talking about plain text printing. this printer is so awful i cannot believe it ever left the factory testing lab.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a hunk-o'-junk!! Can I give less than one star?
My hubby bought this printer for me, knowing that I have hundreds of digital photos on my hard drive that I would love to share. He's usually pretty good at picking computer peripherals, since it's his job to find the best gear for the best price. But he really blew it with this one!! It's incredibly, unbelievably noisy, it takes forever to get anything done, I have frequent paper jams even when I've got an inch thick stack of paper in the feeder, it guzzles ink by the gallon and I'm NEVER satisfied with the output. I've gone through four complete sets of ink cartridges and have... oh about three photos to show for it. It does an alright job with general ink-jet printing tasks, like printing up grocery lists and stuff like that but for my money, I'd never buy another one. My aunt bought one at a garage sale to give to her grandson; I told her she paid too much for it ($10) and that her grandson would be cursing her till Doomsday. [It WAS at a garage sale for heaven's sake!!] A friend was here the other day to get my help with a poster presentation she's preparing for a conference. We wasted two hours, a package of glossy photo paper and a bucket of ink and had NOTHING to show for it when we were done. So now hubby has agreed to trade printers with me and I'll be using his oh-so-quiet, speedy, sharp-printing Canon S330 from now on. Woo hoo!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not just the worst printer I've ever owned...
The Epson Stylus Photo 820 is not just the worst printer I've ever owned; it's the single worst piece of hardware I've ever owned. I got one which worked unreliably for a couple of months then died; Epson sent me another which refused to take in paper; they sent me another which never once printed without gaps in the printout, and finally they sent me a fourth which I still have, which has caused more grief and frustration than any other piece of hardware I've ever owned. I spend half my time cleaning the print heads; I can do this ten times in a row and still get printouts with blank horizontal lines running through it. The printer demands new cartridges constantly, because all the ink is being used on cleaning the print heads. I would sooner set myself on fire than buy another Epson product.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Devil's Printer:Eternal Damnation in form of a Printer
If you want to go to printer hell on earth, buy this shiny and attractive ink vampire.It is very pretty and comes with a highly reputed name, but beware -- after a day or so (a week if you are lucky) of flawless results, the nightmare starts.Photos appear in the wrong colors, or with unsightly bars through the image.You wonder, how could it be? -- this is a new printer!But you soon find that your impressive looking printer is merely biding it's time, drinking your ink, and (late at night, when it thinks you're asleep) laughing softly and maniacally at your panic and unease.Unarguably an evil invention by Epson's finest shamsters.You will buy much expensive ink, and cry many tears of frustration before throwing the beast away (where it will sit invitingly next to the dumpster to attract a new fool of a human being).On the bright side, if you are masochistic, you will love this printer! ...

When not in use, the P6250 has a flip-up dust cover to prevent dust and debris from fouling the card slots. Another option for photo printing is to simply connect your camera directly to the P6250 via the USB 2.0 port. Either way, the P6250 produces quality photo prints with little wait time, with or without borders. Additional features include step-by-step animated prompts on the preview screen, including an alert to replace an ink cartridge. The P6250 supports an optional Lexmark N4000e for Ethernet 10/100Base TX for network printing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent software, recommended for home users
First of all, The P6250 printer may come in boxed with or without the USB cable.The model 21B0000 does not include the cable.Model 21B0281 includes it.For those of you planning to purchase the printer with no cable it will be good to know that a standard USB cable will work just fine with the printer, I tell you from actual experience since I accidentally purchased the model with no cable.Make sure to grab a USB 2.0 compatible (or better) cable.

This printer uses two ink cartridges simultaneously.The factory-installed cartridges are Photo (#31) and Color (#33).You can optionally purchase a Black cartridge (#32 or #34)to replace the photo cartridge. The color ink cartridge must always be there.Lexmark also has a high yield color cartridge (#35) that provides a higher quality image from the printer.If you don't do much photo printing I recommend purchasing and using a black cartridge when not printing digital photos.Is not that that the photo cartridge is limited for pictures only, but with the black cartridge you obtain a faster output rate for other types of documents, and you save on precious photo ink.There is a cartridge storage area inside the printer where you can conveniently place your extra ink cartridge.The printer's front panel displays the ink levels as they get quickly drained.You should purchase your replacement cartridges from a store that sells two-pack ink bundles.Heavy printing could result in a very high total cost of ownership.

I mostly use the P6250 for normal printing, copying and sometimes for scanning.You can make color or b&w copies and there is no need to interact with the computer for simple photocopies.I have not tested the faxing capabilities of this printer.

For photo printing, a few sample copies of photo paper are included.The output is colorful and sharp.Photos may be printed from your computer's hard drive or from a memory card connected directly to the printer's front panel.The front panel supports Compact Flash Type I/II, SmartMedia, Microdrive, Memory Sticks, Secure Digital (SD), Multimedia and xD cards. Inserting a memory card on your printer initiates the Fast Pics software from Lexmark where you can adjust your pictures and print them later.

The printer includes the All in One software from Lexmark.With this user-friendly software you can manage all the printer features such as Scanning, Printing, Photo Editing, OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Faxing and Photocopying.There are also troubleshooting options in case your printer starts misbehaving.

This printer was the perfect choice for me, it should be ideal for any home user.However, you should know that this family of printers, as with any inkjet family is not designed for heavy, commercial-like use.

I hope that my review helps with your purchase decision.


5-0 out of 5 stars Great printer!
I got this as a gift and am very happy with it!I use it everyday and it prints clearly and quickly.The scanner, copier and photo printer work extremely well.I would definately recommend to anyone looking for a high end printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, above average quality
This printer far exceeded my expectations, excellent with photos on glossy and matte finish, fast with text, prints on all my different types of paper with no problem.The standalone printing is easy to navigate and I find the image preview in copy mode extremely helpful. I bought this based on a recommendation and the cartridges being less expensive than HP and I would recommend this printer to anyone thinking of getting one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buggy, slow, with extremely poor mechanics.
I'd bought this printer to replace a Hewlett-Packard copy/fax/print/scanner all-in-one whose scrolling mechanism had broken after merely a year.Little did I know what I was in for.This Lexmark quickly surpassed the Hewlett-Packard, hands down, as the worst printer I've ever used.

The scrolling works only about 25 per cent of the time.I've tried glossy photo paper, matte-finish paper, a single sheet of normal printer paper, and a full stack.None of the above would scroll into the machine with 100 per cent consistency.I can't tell you how annoying it is to watch the paper feed jerk, wiggle, then refuse to enter into the printer.

This results in having to resend the job over and over, dealing with the print manager...and triple the amount of time it *should* take to print almost anything.And when this Lexmark freezes up, forget about correcting the problem and resuming the job -- not only is it unable to pick up a job midway, it sends the print manager into a tailspin, forcing you to delete the job, cancel everything on the printer itself, and then resend the job.And if you leave this printer on and plugged into your computer (as I do -- as all printers are supposed to be), it will sometimes go into a kind of "safe" or "frozen" mode where all onboard controls (including the power switch) cease to function, the computer can't communicate with it, and the only way to get it out of the annoying "Lexmark" logo screen is to unplug the power cable and replug it.What is this, The Flintstones?

This machine's performance has gotten me so peeved that I've actively tried to avoid doing any print jobs in the last two months.And when printing something as simple as a Fellowes CD-label sheet, the machine's accuracy is horrendous.A CD design done in Photoshop, which had printed perfectly fine on the Hewlett-Packard, suddenly became decentered, and each printed sheet is screwed up in a different way, which means it isn't the file that's wrong, but the printer.

These all-in-ones are supposed to be designed for photos.What exactly is this Lexmark good for, when it won't even print a simple e-mail from Internet Explorer, a one-page document from Microsoft Word, or a bare-bones Photoshop design?I'm sending this back to Lexmark with a tongue lashing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer
This printer came in a package i got about a year and a half ago and i just started using it in november of this year. it prints out good quality on BEST mode. on normal mode its really bad. my ink just ran out so 3 months or so the ink lasts. its time for me to upgrade but being a teenager i dont have the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars HP Support Service Rocks
HP telephone support service provided my 12 year old daughter witha calm, step by step process in downloading a printer driver morecompatible with her computer.We very much appreciate the time and the patience given to us.

3-0 out of 5 stars An Achilles Heel
I've had a long history with HP printers but their paper handling seems to be their Achilles heel.After buying an OfficeJet 600 and absolutely hating it for its inability to handle any paper, I switched to an Epson C80.My one complaint with the Epson was that the ink eventually started accumulating in the printer "wells" and started splashing onto everything.When that finally got on my nerves, I decided to give the DeskJet 5150 a try because the price was right and the reviews seem decent.

Compared to the Epson, the paper handling has been a nightmare.I can only load batches of papers at once because a standard single sheet will NOT go in smoothly no matter how hard I tug at the side tabs.We're talking about 1-2 mm that would make a world of difference.For one shot feeds of odd-size papers/letters, "convenient" is not in the dictionary.

To add insult to injury, it has started printing off alignment and giving me slightly crumpled edges just as I'm starting to look to replace the original ink carts.I'm definitely looking to cut my losses at this point.

No hard feelings but more than a tad bit disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great basic printer for the money
I bought the HP 5150 as a replacement for a 7+-year old, broken HP ink jet, and I'm very happy with it.I use it to print a lot of envelopes and haven't had any problems with the alignment getting messed up like I did with my old printer.The guides adjust smoothly (unlike my old printer) and it prints quickly enough for my own personal use - faster than my old printer since the 5150 uses a USB cable (I saved $15 on that and bought it at Target).It was really simple to set up, too, and I only have a basic knowledge of computers.

I don't plan on using it to print photos, but I understand the cartridges switch out and you can print quality color photos.The cartridges were a bit tricky to snap in.

I am comfortable with HP quality, so I didn't consider any other brands.The price seemed reasonable.

Overall, I'm very happy with this printer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ours just died one day
We had our 5150 for three months and it conked out one day in the middle of a job. We called HP and were told, "Maybe it's the power cord. We'll send you a new one." That was wishful thinking, and we ended up having to send the printer back to HP in exchange for a brand-new one. It was a hassle, though, dealing with HP's computer system (ironic). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use. Prints beautiful photos
I found this photo printer easy to set up and use. The driver installed on my PC in a few minutes and I was up and running. My digital camera uses SD memory and this printer accepts the memory cards for printing photos. One time I selected the wrong photo and it was easy to cancel the print job by hitting the print cancel button on the printer. I have printed photos and even used the black text to print memos and Excel spreadsheets.I really can't believe how much this printer does for such a low price. Highly recommended.

If you print with HP's recommended paper you get brilliant photo prints. I tried a 4x6 photo and it came out looking great.

Only downside.....this printer does not have a LCD photo preview screen on the printer. If you want to preview your photos you can do so on your PC or camera before printing. Some printers like the HP PhotoSmart 8150 have a photo preview screen which would be nice to have. All things considered, the HP 7450 is a great buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Another awful HP printer
I have went through a frustrating run of HP printers, and this model will be the final one I will ever buy. I used to enjoy the dependability of an HP printer, but lately every one I have purchased has malfunctioned in some way shortly if not right out of the box.

This printer offers a decent amount of function for the price, however, it repeatedly wasted at least two sheets of paper with noise every time I turned my computer on...a problem I have had with several HP printers.After this, it began to kick out paper at random and print starting in the middle of the page. If this printer actually operated as advertised, it would be a nice deal for the money. As it, I would recommend going with an Epson if at all possible. I will do so in the future.

1-0 out of 5 stars Paper Jam
I recently purchased the Epson Stylus C66 printer for my personal home use.However, the paper would not feed into the printer.It would pull to the left and jam in the feed repeatedly.I did get it to print a couple sheets but the paper had to positioned exactly to feed through straight.Needless to say, I returned the Epson because the paper jamming was making the printer useless.I have never been a big fan of the top loading printer and now I know why.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value and thrifty
This C66 replaced a C62.C66 is extremely quiet.I chose to purchase from epson.com (clearance center).No tax/shipping for this refurbished unit.Coupled with Carrot Ink cartridges, it's a great value.Great service from epson.com and they're shipped from Indianapolis, IN for fast service.

5-0 out of 5 stars SUCH A GOOD DEAL!
This printer exceeded my expectations. Sharp, Clear,high quality reproduction. My manuscripts look great.I'm glad I purchased this little machine.Such a really good deal!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars I knew it was a cheap printer, but it still fell short.
I simply bought this cheap printer to print the occasional Word document and web-page. Unfortunately, it can't even do that.From day one it has printed with streaks and banding - despite nozzle-cleaning and other maintenance operations. The paper does not feed through the printer straight - it will consistenly print inconsistently - lines of text will be skewed and forget trying to print anything with precision (like an Avery label-sheet for example) because the printer will never line-up the sheet properly so there is overlapping which essentially wastes that sheet of labels. The colors are quite-off from what is displayed on the screen. I do realize this is a cheap printer, however I am disappointed that Epson cheaped-out this far. I've had it for about a month or so and I don't think one single item that I've printed has been satisfactory. I just want to print the occasional Word document for school papers and web pages and it can't even do that - I am not looking for an expensive photo printer. Rather than buy new ink cartridges once these run out, I think I will just throw-away this printer and perhaps try a cheap HP or Lexmark. Boo.

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT Compatible with Macintosh!
Well, I just wasted $70. To my knowledge, this is the first USB printer from any manufacturer that is not Mac-compatible. Even worse, it seems that Epson made a conscious decision to make this printer incompatible with the Macintosh just to force us to spend more money.

Quoted from the Epson.com website:

Q: Why isn't the Epson Stylus C66 compatible with Macintosh computers?

A: Epson America works closely with Apple to deliver digital imaging products that meet their customer's needs. Based on feedback from Apple and its customers, Epson determined that Mac users were not interested in lower-end printers such as the $69 Epson Stylus C66.

Many other Epson printers are Mac compatible, however, for a general-purpose inexpensive Mac-compatible printer Epson recommends the Epson Stylus C86 which retails for $99. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars good if it works, but beware of the ink cartridge scam
I bought it some time ago, for a small home business. The idea of being able to print large doublesided sheets automatically, with a separate tank for each colour made it the ideal machine for me.
Or at least so I thought. Printing doublesided is not so automatical as I expected. It sometimes needs some manual work (could be a software problem, not sure) to save many sheets going to waste. And the built in "safety" against using out of date cartridges, regardless of the quantity (sometimes 60%) of ink still available made me decide to dump it. There seems to be NO solutionwhen the printer simply refuses to print any longer with one or more out of date cartridges. I have to go out and buy new HP ones. I think it is a scam and HP should be in a law suit over this. They should leave the decision to throw 60 % full ink cartridges away to me, the customer, not to them. Had they put a warning on the package or in their review of the machine about this I would not have bought it.
It is a shame. I have been a loyal customer to HP printers since the early 90's, but no more HP for me. There must be other companies that make good printers without this stinking ink policy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Built to a price unfortunately
I bought this printer as a replacement for a 1220C non duplex printer as duplexing has become a must for our company. I have had this product for 2 years and probably run no more than 200 sheets of paper through it. The quality is superb when it works. It has now developed a fault which makes it as good as useless as it requires a replacement part which I understand would cost almost as much as the printer if I could actually get it. Looking on the HP web-site forums I note that this particular problem appears to be rather too common for this make of printer. I cannot recommend it and suggest you look elsewhere. Shame, as I really rate HP printers
I will be junking it ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Printer for the price!
I just recently received the Canon i455 printer as a gift. This is my 3rd photo printer to date. I am very pleased with the print quality I get from this printer. It is reasonally fast and best of all the ink cartridges are very inexpensive compared to other printers I've used. I have used both Lexmark & HP printers as well. Both of them printed well also. The lexmark was very slow to get good quality & the HP was both fast and had good quality, but both of them used very expensive ink cartridges. I don't know yet how long the ink will last in the Canon, but I will be printing a lot more photos than I used to simply because I will not worry about the cost of the ink used.

I would recommend this printer to anybody interested in getting a good photo printer without having to spend a lot of money! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Bang for the Buck!
Ok, I got this printer for X'mas 2 years ago and it's still awesome. I bought this for 50 bux during a sale and in addition to a gift certificate. I am surprised how some people can give this item a bad review, I'm sure they got a lemon because I have nothing but praises for this printer. My ONLY complaint is that does have a big footprint and the inks are expensive. But otherwise, the quality is great (it also depends on the photo printer paper you use and settings). The 4x6 tray is a nice touch and the mutliple memory card inputs! I bought tons of 4x6 photo paper and its an easy load and the printouts are amazing. Brilliant colors using my Canon SD300 digital camera. It's been 2 years now and I love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars HP 7660 is a joke!BUYER BEWARE!
This printer prints wonderful photos IF you can keep it printing!I constantly had error messages and cartridge incompatibility issues.Oh, and then there is the "failed cartridge" message.HP replaced the cartridge once, but I still got the error messages!I can't make them understand.. it's the PRINTER, not the cartridges!Whatever reads the cartridges is defective and HP won't own up to it! I decided to refill the cartridges and now HP won't even talk to me.Who can afford to buy their ink? Their ink is over 60 dollars!Unless youhave a spare job just to keep buying cartridges for this printer forget it!Buying a HP printer just allows the company to keep their hands deep in your pockets!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for 8X10's, terrible for 4x6
I have used this for over a year now.Can print out fabulous 8x10's.

It uses two cartridges for photo quality prints.And it is an ink hog.

Cost per 8x10 photos is about $2 a page.

Best paper is Ilford pearl type of paper.

For 4x6's forget it.It's very touchy with this paper holder (built in).After a few 4x6 prints it just decides not to print anymore.I had to get a Canon CP100 (4x6 thermal printer) which does a much better print than the HP, and it is more reliable.

I love HP stuff.But I would not buy this printer again.I would try another HP model, or a Canon.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
We've had the printer for about a year and have been very pleased with the quality of the prints. The borderless 4x6 prints are very nice. I was somewhat concerned with the flimsy lever mechanism for switching between the two print trays. Well sure enough, the lever broke. Now I can't switch between the two trays. Initially this was not a huge problem because we could still manually pull the 4x6 tray in and out. However, now after I've replaced an ink cartridge, it requires printing to 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper for callibration and won't recognize that I've pulled the 4x6 tray out. So now I'm out a printer (unless anyone has any suggestions).

1-0 out of 5 stars Engineered cheap
I was very happy with the 7550 for one of my computers and after reading the discriptions for the 7660, I thought "great - uses the same cartridges as the 7550". What I didn't read in the discription was costly: it only holds two cartidges at a time
-57 & 58- for color photos (the two cartridges in the box)or
-57 & 56- for standard black & color printing which I will use most of the time, while the 58 sits in its caddy where it can dry out or get lost. Anyone wanna buy an almost new 7660 real cheap? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Quantity not quality
At the time of purchase I was considering a few cameras.I not only considered the individual cost but also the price of paper and ink.At the time I thought that I had made the right choice by selecting the most cost efficient item.The printer is very easy to use and prints quickly.For quick prints where quality is not that important this printer is great.If you want quality pictures this printer does not even come close to its counterparts.My friend bought the Kodak printer the same day.Her printer is slower and runs out of ink faster but the prints are phenomenal.My prints come out more quickly but the quality is just not there even when set to all of the best options.I wish now that I had gone another route.The printer has just one color cartridge for all colors, however if you print a lot of one color (example pictures at the ocean) then other prints look oddly greenish or redish without the cartridge suggesting a change.I also have a problem with stickiness, I have tried both the premium HP paper as well as other brands and it comes out sticky.The pictures stick to my frames and scrapbook covers even after several hours of drying time.For quick pictures to pin on a bulletin board or give to kids this is great, but for memorable lasting photos this isin't the best bet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in NY
At first I loved this printer, it is simple to use and can be used alone or through your pc.Unfortunately the photos never dry.At first I thought it was because I either framed them or put them in an album before they had a chance to dry.I then printed some and let them sit out to dry for weeks and the photos never dried.Any photos that I have framed eventually stick to the glass, particularily the darker spots of the photo.I even got a new printer from HP and still encountered the same problem...has anyone else had this problem? (Yes I am using the correct HP paper and ink)

5-0 out of 5 stars A great little workhorse!
This is a dandy little workhourse that will generate countless 4 x 6 photographs from your digital camera with no hassle or fuss. The HP 245 is a small, tight little package that you can easily pack away and take along on trips.
The HP 245 really helps make the "digital darkroom" a reality, even during trips. I take mine on my boat together with a small laptop computer, and can generate high-quality 4 x 6 photos right on the spot, after taking shots with various digital cameras. The HP 245 has a built-in CF card reader and also reads various other popular media and you can easily print directly from the CF card or other media even without the laptop too.The color LCD allows you to simply insert the CF card (or other medium) and simply select what picture you want to print--without the computer.This also means that you don't need to bring a card reader along if you have your HP 245 since it functions as a digital media reader.
My HP 245 installed effortlessly on my IBM Thinkpad notebook computer (IBM TP 600E) running Windows XP, and is now my main printer for 4 x 6 photos and of course is the only printer I take along on trips. It is great fun to go on trips, take photos, and then give friends nicely framed photos the next day, or later the same day. Frankly, I never realized how much fun it was to have a printer along on trips. Most printers nowadays are big and bulky. This one is not.

The quality of the prints from the HP245 is excellent -- it uses the Type 57 tri-color cartridge which is the same cartridge that several bigger printers use.The photos are crisp, bright, and professional.This printer produces very decent 4 x 6 prints that look great framed on one's living room table, wall, or whatnot.

I also have the HP145 which is exactly the same except that it lacks the color LCD which allows you to view the pictures without a computer, although it will print out a little index of thumbnails for you to select from.When I needed a second printer I went with the 245 because the cost had come down.Either is excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars This printer is awesome!
I gave this printer to my Brother for Christmas 2 years ago. While I was visiting him last week in Montana, we printed out the pictures I took.they turned out better then regular film. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.I plan to buy myself one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A go everywhere printer!
This is hands down the best compact 4x6 printer on the market.I have been using a Canon S750 for most of my digital printing, and it works great, but the ease of the HP 245 and quality of prints is awesome.Just pop in your memory card and start printing, with a small screen to view your pictures and loads of features, your pictures always look great! Plus the zoom feature is just fantastic.I also bought a travel case for it so I can take it with me on trips, and the hp 11.5 mil. premium plus glossy photo paper with the tab so you don't have to touch the photo is the best paper out there period.An all around great printer! ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The PIXMA ip2000 from Canon is a photo printer that allows you to create high-quality prints from the comfort of your own home, while carrying a very reasonable price tag. Convenient and easy-to-use, the ip2000 utilizes Canon's Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) technology and a 1,088-nozzle print head to produce fine, 2-picoliter ink droplets, resulting in photos with rich detail and subtle shading. Canon's color and pigment-based black inks produce rich, colorful prints, while borderless printing lets you create photos with a professional look and feel.

Color resolution is as high as 4,800 x 1,200 dpi, with black-and-white resolution up to 600 x 600 dpi. Print speeds are as high as 20 ppm in black, 14 ppm in color, while a borderless 4-by-6-inch photo takes about 50 seconds. Additionally, the same drive system responsible for the ip2000's improved print speed also results in a low 43 dB(A) noise level. (See Canon's web site for details about resolution, speed, and other specifications.)

Easy-PhotoPrint v3.0
While most photo-editing software applications will brighten the entire image, Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 accurately detects the subject's face and adjusts the skin to the optimum tone. Brighten dark faces caused by bright backgrounds. Choose from one-click automatic to correct the entire image all at once, or manual to correct just a selected area.

Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 also lets you select and print any image on your PC, perfectly trim images, correct images using lab-quality retouching features, correct red-eye, smooth facial lines and skin tone, sharpen faces, remove blemishes, and print in a variety of sizes and layouts.

Exif Print Technology
Exif 2.2 is the worldwide printer independent standard for digital image processing. Under Exif 2.2, the digital still camera can record data tags for specific camera settings and functions such as whether the flash was on or off, if the camera was in landscape, portrait or night scene mode, etc. Referencing some or all of this information, an Exif Print compatible application can process digital camera images intelligently based on specific camera settings and the shooting environment.

Easy to Set Up and Use

This printer can connect directly to select digital cameras. Learn more about PictBridge.
With its easy-to-use USB port, hooking up the printer to your computer is a snap, while a direct print port allows you to print directly from a PictBridge-compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, with or without the use of your computer. The software bundle includes Easy-PhotoPrint and PhotoRecord to help you maximize your print options.

1-0 out of 5 stars useless
My version of this printer was pretty much useless because everytime I went to print, the paper would get jammed. This happened over and over and over and over and over again. I was not doing anything fancy, simply printing black/white documents. This is why I rank this product as utterly useless. Canon should devote some serious attention to their paper feeding system on this printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
I got this printer on clearance... Even at full price its about a thrid of my first one! Great borderless full size 9x11" color prints in about one minute! YIKES thats FAST! Its really quiet too! I just love this thing! Get one now!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for occasional printing needs
The iP2000 from Canon is a capable photo printer for occasional use.It boasts high speed and excellent photo quality.In the end I paid $20 more and got the iP3000 instead because (according to my Staples sales guy) the iP3000 allows individual color tanks, so when you run out of one ink you don't need to replace all the colors.

Of course, in reality the colors tend to run out more or less at the same time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, quality printing at an affordable price.
This printer replaced my Lexmark z45, which had very expensive toners.I have printed over 300 pages in black with this printer, only using half of the $8 black cartrige.This printer prints excellent borderless photos, transparencies, tshirt transfers, etc.This printer is VERY fast.If you want affordable quality printing, GET THIS PRINTER!!! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Will not buy Epson again
This printer worked great until I replaced the ink cartridges. then it would not print at all.Epson sent me a new printer.It also worked great until I changed the ink cartridges.Now it is out of warranty and they won't even talk to you unless you pay a 9.95 fee.After seeing all the other reviews with the same problem,I know it is not anything that I'm doing.Epson should recall this printer.

1-0 out of 5 stars ZERO stars!Poorly designed product prone to failure!
Quite simply, there should be a class action type lawsuit against Epson for selling this unquestionably substandard printer that has given legions of consumers so many headaches and problems.It is more than coincidence when so many customers describe the same exact failures and malfunctions of this exact unit.Even a recall of the product and customer reimbursement would be in line.Ours just failed 'out of the blue' after just a few months right after we inserted a new cartridge!The printer would not print at all, and it made a very loud annoying noise which sounded like rocks being tossed about inside the printer!We have a business with 110 employees to run, and this printer's failure caused us some downtime and dollar losses, being it failed us during an important printing task.Call and/or write & e-mail Epson and demand they hold themselves accountable for this unreliable, shoddy product which is failing in droves!

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this printer
This is the second epson printer that I've owned that failed shortly after the warranty expired. I changed the ink cartridges and now it won't print at all. A big waste of money!

1-0 out of 5 stars Engineered to fail
I'm convinced Epson has engineered this product to fail just as your warranty period is ending.I bought this unit in April 2003, and like many of the reviewers, I enjoyed good prints - for a while.When the print quality deteriorated - and it will - I ran through the entire process previously described by others, and eventually sent the printer back to Epson, and they sent me a brand new one.That was April 2004.Now, in April 2005, after enjoying a period of good prints, I am experiencing deja vu.It is very frustrating.I run a small home business and I need my printer to be reliable.This product is reliable only in the sense that you can rely on it breaking down.I also owned a little Epson Stylus 740, and it too broke down.I AM DONE WITH EPSON PRINTERS!The owner of my local printer repair shop says he sees this with Epson printers all the time.He recommends the Lexmark all-in-one (the one Dell sells).However, if you want a printer that will deliver good prints for a short time, the CX5200 is your baby.If I was reviewing this product 6 months into its life cycle, I would give it 4 stars.Now I wish I could give it less than 1 star.I notice all the newer reviews also give it 1 star (or at most 2 stars) so the 3.5 star average most definitely is misleading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this one
I ran out of all color ink and replaced all of the cartridges - at the same time - and they didn't work. I consulted the manual and ran about ten head cleanings. I called tech support and was told to run more head cleanings which used up almost all of the ink I'd just bought. It still didn't work. I was then told that the new ink cartridges might have been faulty and that I should try new ones. (That should have thrown up a little red flag - why would all three color cartridges have been faulty?) I returned the ink cartridges to the store and exchanged them for new ones. Luckily I didn't have to pay for them twice. These still didn't work. The yellow and red inks stopped immediately and the blue faded out after a couple of days. The black now prints with lines and blotches that can't be corrected.

I thought that this was a good printer for the value, but the price seems too high now for a printer in which two of the three functions will quit after a short period of time. Before it stopped printing it ate up ink like crazy. If even one cartridge ran out of ink, it stopped printing altogether (even in black and white) until the cartridge was replaced.

This printer wasn't worth the money, time or energy. I won't buy another Epson printer.

I needed a printer to go with my Notebook and this one filled the bill.It isn't cheap but you seem to get what you pay for.When at home, adding the Auto Sheet Feeder makes it as convenient as a stationary printer but with a smaller footprint.Highly recommend this one for the Notebook users.

IT WAS VERY EASY TO INSTALL AND EASY TO WORK WITH. THE PRINTING IS GREAT, AND QUICK FOR A BUBBLE JET. THE COLOR IS VERY GOOD.

I've had the predecessor (BJC-50) for about 4 years.It has been used heavily at home and one the road, and it has taken hard beatings.It has finally given out, and I'm going to buy another.

It's a truly amazing product.I can't think of another computer peripheral that still costs the same as it did 4 years ago -- and is still worth the high price.Why can't anyone else match it at a lower price?Darned if I know!

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.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice looking, shoddy networking capabilities
Although the output from the printer looks nice for the price, it has two important design faults if you want to use it over a network.

Firstly, It can't lease an IP address from a DHCP server like say a router. This means that if you connect it to a router and run the install, it probably won't work. You have to set your PC to a satic IP adress on the same subnet as the printer and manually set the IP of the printer before setting your PC back to the IP address it should have. If you're not Au fei with networking you wouldn't be able to do this as the info isn't in the manual and HP tech support wouldn't know a subnet from a piano.

The other problem is more serious as it cannot be worked around. WPA encryption doesn't work at all. WEP isn't secure enough so if you want to use this printer on a properly secured wireless network, you can't.

There are also a number of minor nigling problems like, it takes up to 20 minutes to negotiate a connection to a wired router.

One final note: never call HP tech support.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to setup and use!
My Epson CX5400 bit the dust after a mere 7 months of use, so I decided to try HP.I had good luck with HP Printers in the past.

I chose the HP Deskjet 5850 for one main reason...wireless networking!I have a small apartment and two computers (PC and Mac), so the convenience of being able to place the printer in a more convenient spot, without wires hanging around, was a big plus.The cost for this printer was reasonable as well given the technology.

I don't understand why people on here had difficulty setting up the printer.I set it up on BOTH my PC and my Mac, and it took less than one hour.My guess is people don't follow the instructions on the poster and try to take shortcuts.

The printer works great.The print quality is very good, it is relatively quiet, and the speed is just fine for me.

I will highly recommend this printer to anyone who desires a cost-effective, WIRELESS solution!

I am a Mac user running OS 10.3.When this printer first arrived about a month ago, its included software did not support USB connection to a Mac.This is a bad start considering how common the USB connection is.Finally, I downloaded the latest 2.5 version of the software, but it still does not fully support printing PDF filfes.I am a scientist, and many scientific papers are now published in PDF format.I cannot recommend this to anyone who needs to print PDF files on a regular basis.

4-0 out of 5 stars WiFi setup was much easier than anticipated
I just received my HP 5850 WiFi printer and was a bit apprehensive about the setup after reading some of the negative reviews.I'm running a desktop on XP Pro and a laptop on the very flakey Windows ME which are connecting on a WiFiLinksys WRT54G Broadband Router.I carefully read the instructions that came with the printer and gathered all of my network configurations and WEP key.I shut down my ZoneAlarm firewall and proceeded with the installation.The initial stage of installation required that I hookup the printer and router with a provided Ethernet cable so the printer and software gather the necessary network settings.Once complete and the drivers and software were installed on my computer, I pulled the cable and to my complete amazement the WiFi worked right off.I was anticipating hours of troubleshooting but I was up and running.I then installed the drivers and software on the Windows Me laptop and it was running in no time.I started ZoneAlarm again and everything worked.You can set up the printer to use a provided USB or Ethernet cable if you don't want to use the WiFi.By using WiFi, I was able to eliminate a "A/B Box" and 3 printer cables, and my laptop is able to print from any location in the house.

Every time the printer has been turned off it will take about a minute for the printer to find the WiFi connection and attach to the network after it has been turned on again.Don't panic if it takes a little while.The printer itself is a little slow compared to my old Deskjet 990 but the quality is good and photo printing is excellent.I was also able to use my two sided printing module off the Deskjet 990 on the new 5850.
