3 out of 5 eggsGreat printer but.....

Pros: Excellent print quality: setup panel covers almost every imaginable combination of paper and print options: silent: works find with USB 2.0: automatic black ink selection.

Cons: Expensive ink ($500 for a full set of cartridges): took 37% of the factory-supplied cartridge set to "charge" the printer.

When printing from Photoshop CS5 (or 4 or 6), you are likely to get a message "The saved printer is not compatible with this version Photoshop..." If you get this message, or if nothing happens when you click "Print," you will be in a world of hurt, There is apparently no true, simply, solution to this problem, which appears to be an Adobe bug compounded by Epson's firmware.

And this too: as the other reviewer noted, the printer's LCD messages were clearly written by someone who isn't a native English speaker.

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best printer out there in the advanced amateur/low-end pro range. If I could print problem-free I'd give it six stars, but it's being quite a hassle.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome print quality, awful printer quality

Pros: Awesome print quality - detail and color amazing, especially on larger prints. Relatively economical.

Cons: Epson is shipping me a 3rd printer under warranty because the first stopped working and 2nd was DOA.

Error messages come up in broken English - obviously engineering was outsourced to another country, and engineers didn't care enough to take 30 seconds to do a better translation.

Technical support is friendly, but I get the impression they had no training or experience and were just given a user manual and a telephone. They don't try to troubleshoot anything, don't know error codes, and won't even look them up unless asked.

Other Thoughts: This is such a great product when it works, which makes this such a shame.
