Epson Stylus C84 User Reviews
This is the best printer I ever bought
“I have not had this printer long enough to give you a durability report. I find its output is crisp, it was easy to install on Windows XP Home, it is light weight, stylish, is a fast inkjet printer and easy is to keep dust free, operates flawlessly and overall does a great job. I hope to use it on a wireless network, which it is capable of doing. If you need just a printer I’d say this is the one. “ – by A Customer
Good Printer, but Watch the Ink Costs
“Overall, this is a good printer. It was breeze to install and start using. The print quality of text documents and spreadsheets is great and can be improved by changing the settings at the expense of using more ink. And this–the use and cost of ink–is one of the most important factors to consider with this as well as other ink-jet printers. “ – by A Customer
Not interested in photo printing, just regular printing?
“Try to buy an inkjet printer these days, and they all say they are “photo printers”. Well, if you just need a printer to print word documents, or selections from webpages, etc… then this is a great printer. Fast and great quality text. Read further reviews if you want precise detail on photos. I don’t print photos. To me, printers are at their best when you don’t think about them. File/Print/Number of copies/OK is all I want to click. And this printer just works. The documents look great.” – by J. Farrell
Very nice printer
“I purchased this to replace my HP DeskJet 932C printer, and have been very happy with it. I am only using it to print photos and graphics, I have a Samsung ML-1710 laser printer to cover the text (happy with it too). I have found it best to have 2 different printers, one that does great with text, etc. (the laser) and one that does great with pictures and such (the C84). I have printed several pictures taken with my digital camera (Canon A70) and they have all turned out very well. I have showed them to several people and all have been impressed. It just does great with photos of all types.” – by M. L. White
New and Improved
“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.” – by E. Callaway
“I will say that for this price class, this printer is excellent. My only complaint is that it takes a while to warm up. After that,it prints fast, and it prints well. The photos off of this thing are amazingly good for an 80 dollar, textcentric printer; I’ve used them in presentations and projects. They’re nearly photo quality. The text is sharp, clear, and readable. Printing rates, with text are good, with the photos, it’s a little slow but not much. If you print mostly text (and a fair amount of it) with occasional photos, this is a great buy.” – by W. Paul W.
Great Printer for the money spent
“I bought this printer almost a year ago, it seemed great until now. When used properly it prints amazing photos on the Epson premium glossy photo paper. No one could tell I printed the images, everyone thought they were developed. Recently the photos became bad with line spaces. May be it is the generic print cartridges that might be ruining it don’t know. After clearing the heads still get horizontal line spaces. Or it is running low on ink. Seems to be a pretty good printer for all other printing documents, no lines there(after one year). “ – by E. Beylin
Excellent photos, crisp text
“Photos – In the past, I used the Ophoto service to print digital photos – but not anymore. Ofoto did a good job, but this printer is just as good, or maybe better. No one can believe my photos don’t come from film developed at a photo shop. I’ve printed 8x10s on this printer that look better than 35mm enlargements. (I use a Sony cyber shot 5 megapixel camera, which I also highly recommend) You must use the right paper (glossy photo paper) for quality photo prints. You can use regular paper to run off disposable type images (for the kids school projects etc..). When you use regular paper the images are still crisp, but they tend to fade in a few weeks “ – by JN Trotter
bad rap undeserved
“I have had my Epson C-84 for well over a year and never had a problem. I use aftermarket inks from 123 Inkjets and even my photos look great and the inks are very inexpensive there as well. If you want to save money don’t look at the printer cost but rather consider the ink cost because that is where they beat you up.” – by Joy
Print quality is excellent
“I have used the C84 extensively and found that there is no other printer for this price that would give you such good results. One of the great things about the C84 is that it has separate ink tanks for each color. That adds to a lot of savings since you can refill or change each tank separately. Printing with a C84 is simple, the options are many, from basic b&w printing to fine color photos with super microweave, color sync etc. Overall, a wonderful printer for the price, much better than more expensive printers. “ – by Bud
