"Near Perfect"5.0 starson by photosbynick
Pros: fast, ink consumption, price, colors, sharpness
Cons: none really.. except maybe a little better accurate on matching colors on the screen
Summary: I am a professional photographer so I have been around the block with photo gear and printers. I got this printer because of the price and was going to just use it at home with my personal and fun work. After printing a few 13x19 prints of my family for my house, I realized the amazing quality I was getting from this printer. It is comparable to my printers in my studio that cost $2000+ for them. OK, so the prints are not perfect and not exactly like a lab print, but pretty close. It is all in using genuine epson ink and good paper. Most people who complain about bad prints either dont know how to post process and print and/or use generic paper. I am using the top of the line epson luster premium paper. Looks and feels like a lab print. Pricey for the paper but well worth it.
Tonight I am printing a sample album for a meeting tomorrow and the album is 40 pages 11x14. I just printed all 40 pages on the 11x17 luster paper premium (going to cut the paper to size later) and only used 1 and a half full sets of ink. I am using the best settings on ink output for quality too. So people who say the inks dont last long, how freaking long do they want them to last. 1 whole ink set lasted 30 11x14 prints and that was using top quality settings.
I love this printer and recommend it to anyone who is serious about their work. If it is good enough for my business then it is good enough for you.
