Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer User Reviews
Excellent for Printing Directly onto DVDs, | Rating:
“I bought this printer for the sole purpose of printing directly on DVDs (I shoot short films and am constantly needing to print on DVDS to submit for film festivals). Searching the Internet I couldn’t find a solid recommendation for a printer — so, for the relatively little bit of money, I tried this one. And it works great for this purpose. “ – by Paul Haber
A Great Printer, | Rating:
“I purchased this Epson printer because of my experiance with Epson. The old on I had gave out and I needed one for printing CD/DVD. This Epson 50 fit my budget and my needs perfectly. It is easy to set up and use even with W7 OS. It is even better than the 400 that went bad as it is much easier and prints better. The only bad part is it doesn’t have a scanner but I have my 7800 for that. “ – by Charles B. Silsbee
Nice Disc Printer, | Rating:
“This was bought so I could make more professional looking DVDs and CDs well that it does. I’ve only printed about 20 so far on it (5 silver printable CDs 15 white printable DVDs) and the quality of the print is excellent, I’ve used less than 1/8 of the ink (or so it says) Let them dry for 24 hours.” – by M.E.F.
A tidy little workhorse, | Rating:
“It produces clear, vibrant colors whether on a printable disc or photo paper. Text on plain paper for inkjets is crisp. If you’re a scrapbook hobbyist or create invitations, the ink bleeds on acetate and cotton fiber vellum, as I expected it would. Hey, I took a shot on products that weren’t designed for inkjet printers, although in these modern times, all sorts of inkjet friendly palettes are probably readily available. “ – by M. Gerrish
Epson Artisan 50: Excellent dye-based printer, | Rating:
“It has been reliable on all counts, paper feed, printing quality and CD/DVD feed and printing. I like standalone printers over multifunction devices, and this one is a great choice for that role. The print quality is top-notch, even unbeatable, at this price range. It came with full capacity cartridges. “ – by M. Purnell
Great low priced option for quality on DVD/CD media printing, | Rating:
“I bought this for its DVD/CD surface printing, and I was not disappointed. The first print out was perfectly aligned to the disk and photo quality. I’ve printed about 15 disks so far and every one of them is printed to the very edges and razor sharp quality…” – by BRAINY33
A big improvement over the Epson R280 photo printer!! | Rating:
“I have owned several Epson printers and I am very happy with the print quality from all of them but the Epson Artisan 50 has a big improvement over the others. It doesn’t stop printing when the ink is low. It tells you after your printing is done, not like the Epson R280 did. That sucked. I wasted so much ink and paper over that. So, with that I am very pleased with the Artisan 50. “ – by D. Brinkley
Great so far | Rating:
“The test prints were great so I printed a CD. It was perfect, Then I did some photos. They are the most beautiful photos I have ever printed. All the good things I read about this printer were true, and the negative things appear to have been corrected. If you are in need of a new printer, I highly recommend this as a replacement as of this time.” – by Richard E. Hanson

The new international ISO print speed standard
Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure in different ways? Now you can. Much like the “MPG” ratings on new cars, there’s now a new industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an “apples-to-apples” comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for ink jet printers and all-in-ones. It measures “out of the box” (default) print speeds using “real world” printing scenarios, so you can be sure you’re getting a product that performs at the speed you need.
