I had one of Epson's early photo printers, the R200. It was a great dependable printer that turned out perfect photos. Lasted 9 trouble free years. I wanted a similar non-all in one printer and settled on the Artisan 50. I am running Vista 64 bit. The included driver didn't take so I had to download an updated one from Epson. That went smoothly. Then the moment of truth. I selected one of my better photo's and clicked PRINT. WOW. Excellent pro looking photo. Now if this printer will just last 9 years like the last one.

This printer does a beautiful job on color prints and handles CDs or DVDs reasonably. The DVD capability is the reason I bought it and it delivers. It will require restarting when errors happen and is expensive to maintain the ink supply. If you want low cost and high volume this is not your printer of choice.

This is a product that meets my needs for a printer that will do a variety of sizes and types of papers. Last Christmas I never knew if the cards I design and sell were going to jam the Epson I used then, or if the printer would simply quit. Regular paper went through without a problem. Epson makes good products, and this Christmas my cards on rag paper came through without hesitation. A great Christmas. My other Epson is now hooked up to my laptop and I will use it wirelessly.

when printing on discs it will work fine for awhile the come up with error lites. have to fool around with it for a few min. go thru trouble shooting. then start all over from the beginning. pretty hard on ink too. I only print in black but it uses all the colors to do that. so you have to replace them all. not cheap to do. phone help is good.

I bought this printer because I heard it was good for printing greeting cards. I have square images and use square cards from another company. At the time they were the only glossy square cards to be found.When I use them there are printer roller marks on the images. That really bothers me. So I end up printing my square cards on the Epson 2880.
