I have today taken delivery of this printer. My first impressions are that this printer itself produces amazing quality prints!! I really cant emphasize this enough!!
I do have a couple of snags though:
Mac OSX software - Well, the driver works, but the utility software is rotten, and cant even detect the printer!
Ink usage - while im aware that some printers may ship with 'not full' ink cartridges, im suprised that this epson either came with virtually no ink in the cardridges OR absolutely drinks it!!
Since installing the printer i've printed 2 A3 B&W prints, and when trying to print a 3rd (color A4) the printer ran out of ink, and churned out a dreadful stripy photo!
So, if its the case that the printer guzzles ink we're looking at approx 32.50 pounds per A3 print (based on 2 pictures from 60quids worth of ink, and 2 sheets of canon pro A3 paper - 25 pounds for 10 sheets), i have a nasty feeling i could have a reem of A3 prints from some stoopid snaps shop on the high street for this amount!!!
Oh, and one last thing - no USB cable supplied - not an issue for me, but i would have hated to have been eagerly anticipating delivery to find i'd have to go out to buy a cable!
