When I upgraded to Windows 8, I found that my old reliable Epson impact printer couldn't handle the new operating system. I bought the LQ-590 to replace it because my old Epson was such a work horse and I wanted to stick with the brand. This little printer is ridiculously fast, and the print is nice and sharp. My only complaint is that it can't be configured to fit my 6 1/2" continuous feed checks - and I use it exclusively for printing checks. I paid about $2K to have these checks printed, so for the time being I'm feeding them into the printer one at a time. That little glitch is the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars. Kudos to Epson for making such a quality product.

An exellent printer with good quality print. The only problem I have experienced is, tht it is near impossible to line up pre-printed checks. The numbers come before the $$ sign and there isn't enough carriage space to compensate

I have had two LQ570 and now have two LQ590 Impact printers. They are by far the best and longest lasting printers I have ever owned. Do not hesitate to buy. You will never be disappointed.

Used every day for years. It simply goes and goes. Outlasts other printers 10x. We replace the printhead every 2 years when it wears out.

I purchased this printer, July 1991, and I can tell you, I LOVE MY PRINTER !! I would never ever change it for a printer that has cartridges! I recently went to purchase a USB cable for it, and the manager wanted to purchase it from me. He said, it looked like I had just taken it out of the box. I take very good care of it, and put a plastic cover on it, everynight when I shut off my pc.
