I prefer Epson for two reasons: 1. the high quality of the printout with color that doesn't fade, and 2. the fact you can replace individual colors as they run out instead of having to buy a color cartridge with tri-color. My only complaint is that if you haven't used the printer in awhile, you often have to clean the cartridge heads. (This is a function of the printer - you don't have to do it manually.) Is does take a minute or two, and and does use up a little ink. This printer prints great photos on glossy paper, too. And it scans documents to your computer very easily.
Bought this over a year ago. Prints great pictures I like the DVD label printer part makes nice labels directly on the DVD! (of course you have to buy hub printable DVD's or CD's) once and a while the sheets don't come out to print not that it gets stuck I think I have to somehow clean the rollers so it will grab the paper better, I just hit the button to eject the paper then hit print again that works most of the time. Other than that it;'s a great printer, especially the glossy photo prints.
I am a design student at CSU Sacramento, and primarily use this to get homework and projects done. The quality of color that this printer has is really great, at first I had multi purpose paper but that stuff is really not good enough for what I was printing. I changed the paper to colorcopy Hammermill 28lb paper 11x17 and it was a huge difference. Only problem I have with this printer is that wireless network loses connection to the printer a lot. I have an Epson XP-310 and it does not do that. It is very annoying when all of your projects are ready for printing and it takes 1 hour to print them. I would recommend this to anyone needing a fairly small printer for its capabilities that needs to print high quality documents.
