I've had my Ep Artisan 50 for 3.5 years now. I love the DVD/CD printing capability that delivers a pretty good professional like label for my wedding customers. What I find vexing, is the fickleness of operations. Once you get it set up, the printer is steady and reliable. If it hiccups, loses power or needs a new cartridge, then it could be down for hours and could require a few calls to Epson tech support. The tech support are great, but the process is tedious. But, all that said, it's only about 1x a year so for 3.5 years, dozens and dozens of DVD labels of success printed in the Epson Label software, I love this little hummer of a printer. My customers like seeing their wedding photos on their wedding videos. I recommend it for DVD/CD printing. I guess it does well on paper, I just don't use it for paper.
My new Epson Artison 50 Printer

I've only had it a week or so and haven't had the time to play with it that I would like. Initial attempts to print brought mixed results. Some images were perfect others that were from my files were dreadful with harsh overdone chroma. I'm told I can call the tech to get the printer more compatible to my computer colorwise. I hope that is true. Dread explaining it to the tech -- that's usually a pain.
best Picture prints for the money
from Somerset, NJ on 7/28/2014
There are a lot of printers out there that print good pictures. Some of these printers print great pictures but they cost a lot of money. This printer gets great professional quality prints for the fraction of the cost of the other printers. Very vivid colors, very clean prints. If you outgrow this printer, then you'll be ready to jump into the R series of Epson printers.

The Epson Artisan 50 does it all and does it well. So far it also seems easy on the ink. For my own uses however, it is 1 of only a few inkjet printers (all Epson) which can close the paper guides down to 2 inches and feed the cards I print (2x3 1/2 inches). I also print a lot of 110lb card stock. this printer has the fairly straight throught paper track that allows the heavy paper to print without problems. All in all, this is one of the best Epsons to date.

I bought this printer for outputting my graphic design, school assignments. Once I figured out the proper print settings, the colors were a perfect match to my monitor. Even the smallest details were crisp. Even people in the print business ask me where I got my portfolio printed. I tell them I did it at home on my little printer. They're impressed.
