Pros Good black text quality; good picture quality; excellent cd printing quality. Separate ink tanks.
Cons Very slow printer; fairly large footprint; changing printer door from paper to cd printing is simple but awkward;
Summary For the price, this is an excellent choice for the home user who wants a printer to do letters, photos and printable CD's. While rather slow on the printing side, this printer makes up for lack of speed by a high quality print output.
Pros I have nothing positive to say about this printer.
Cons Too many to mention
Summary I don't know where to begin... I have owned this printer for (6) months. I bought it when I bought my new MacBook Pro laptop. Since I've owned it it has had problems with paper, it jams CONSTANTLY despite consistently using only INK JET paper. A few days ago it started a "printing strike" and it would only print (1) page before claiming it had no longer had paper nor ink. (Both the ink and paper buttons were illuminated red.) When I used the utility function to check the ink levels however, all the ink levels were fine and there was plenty of unjammed paper in the tray. I tried rebooting my lap top and restarting the printer countless times to no avail. Then today, it is unable to print anything at all, I was unable run any of the utilities, and I was unable to check the ink levels. When I go to utilities and select "Open Printer Utility" it says there is a communication error, but all the requisite electrical cords and the USB cords are properly connected. Other than this printing issue, my 6-month old MAC lap top is running great and the same USB cord works great when I hooked it up to my scanner a few minutes ago, so I know the communication error lies somewhere in the printer. I'm going insane and tearing my hair out, so I disconnected the printed and put it in my recycling bin outside so I no longer have to look at it.
If you value your insanity, you will NOT purchase this printer!
Pros Prints on CD/DVDs too!
Cons None so far!
Pros I highly recomend this printer to anyone who wants to prints high quality photos as well as documents ,but besides the high cost of ink i have a solution to your problems that can save you 90 % on the cost of epson ink .
Cons It call a contunious ink system trust me buying ink cartridges will be a thing of the pass for just go to google or ebay.com and type artisan 50 ink system or just artisan 50 on ebay and see for your self
Pros Prints awesome CD's
Cons The included software does not support Open Type fonts so if you must print Open Type fonts, you have to create a JPG image using another software program and Epson doesn't provide any templates for any software!
Summary It seems extremely counter productive to require users to create the label in a separate application in order to get exactly what you want. Certainly Epson could have supported Open Type fonts. A simple change like that and this printer would have received 5 star.
