  • I'm in love

  • November 08, 2011
  • By: Rebecca Nash

I have had this printer only a few days and I love it already. Only downside is when using thick papers such as Epson's Hot Press or Cold Press papers the front manual feed slot isn't as easy to line up as the paper cassette, or the rear manual feed slot but I'm sure with a little more practice this will become a breeze too (and you only have to use it for the really thick stuff 0.8 or more so it's not an everyday issue). The colours, quality, speed, and flexibility of this item still rate it high on my list of favorite products! I'm working through a whole variety of paper product sample packs to find my favorites for every type of project. As of yet I haven't gotten to play with the roll papers as of yet but I have big plans when we add those into the mix. The posters, banners, and unique sizes it will allow definitely excite me! Worth the price in every way. We moved up from the Epson 1400 and just in ink prices alone for equal amounts of ink for both printers (by volume) the savings in one set of 200ml inks vs. equivalent volume of ink pays for the regular price of the printer. If you're doing alot of printing, don't pass this one by without a serious investigation!
