Header: New and Improved

What I thought was the best printer on the market for high-volume, home use was last year?s Epson C82. When Epson released this model, the third in the C80 series, I was amazed. The Durabrite Ink that Epson has boasted in these units has been improved for the new model. It sticks much better to photo paper than the previous incarnation. It is still just as long lasting and it is still waterproof!
Perfect for the home office, the C80 series has always been used for high volume work on plain paper. The resolution has been very impressive and the output has been top notch. It is amazing how much ink can be stacked on a plain page of paper and not bleed through to the other side. These are all features of the Durabrite ink. While these features are still present in the C84, the fact that it can print pictures on something other than plain paper is impressive too. The C82 always printed the best pictures on plain and matte paper I had ever seen, but it did not react well with many photo papers until Epson came up with a paper specifically for Durabrite. It still wasn?t as good as printers meant for photography on glossy.
The C84 works on a 4-tank ink system. The black tank is rather large. Consumer reports rates this between 3 and 4 cents per page in black and white, well under 10 cents a page for color. This beats almost all of the printers in its price class.
If you are looking for a printer used for photo printing primarily, look toward the Epson R300 or R200, both 6 ink printers. If you are looking for a general printer that will print lots and lots for not a lot of money, and can print photos on the side, this is your printer. It really is good at what it does.

Epson C84 comes with a high capacity (900 pages @ 5% coverage, but about 500 pages in real life) black ink and 3 color ink tanks but no printer cable. The size is compact, it looks cool, has good build quality and installation was quick.
The print quality for text is very good for an inkjet (slightly better than Canon i320) and speed is pretty fast 5-6 pages per min (faster than i320). Both the photos printed on the supplied paper sample were annoying skewed (even after we made sure paper was put in properly). The quality didn't look impressive for photos.
Printer and cartridges have smart chips in them (as do new hp's). This will ensure that you can't put in generic ink but pay Epson each time ink runs out. Also there are reports that the printer declares ink over well before it really is. To make things worse Epson seems to use different cartridge models for almost every printer it makes (Canon & hp use same cartidges in many printers).
One good thing about C84 is that its very silent, even while printing. I guess this is about as silent as you will get with printers. Also the text prints look better than on hp, significantly clearer & blacker.
In short, if you want a text only printer get a Samsung (ML-1710) or Minolta (PagePro 1250W) laser printer for similar price. For good photo printers look at the Canon line up or even better get prints at local stores. Epson C84 is recommended for medium text printing & occasional photo printing.
