I bought the R240 a few days ago. It was a breeze to setup, less then 10 mins. Photo quality is a lot better than my old Lexmark, and more economical too. Could see no noticable grain. Individual ink tanks from around a £5.99. And a seperate black so no more murkey dark green blacks like you get with tri-colour cartridegs. Text print outs are nice, crisp and deep black. The built in TFT screen maybe a bit small for some people but I do most of my printing from the computer anyway. It came with a set of four ink tanks and a pack of 10 5x7in premium glossey photo papers, but it does not come with a USB lead. The software supplied is quite good aswell, the Epson Creativity Suite. With the Easy Photo Print and Epson File Manager you are able to import all your pictures from your computer, camera or scanner. Then you can adust, different photo enahncement features, zoom, rotate, select borders or no borders. The only con I have found so far is the speed, it is a bit on the slow side, but quality is more important to me. So, if you are just getting into digital photography you can't go far wrong with the Epson R240.
