I occasionally need to print acetate artwork for making printed circuit boards using a UV light box. The lines on the artwork must be totally opaque. I bought 50 sheets of these acetates when using an aging HP printer until recently, and the results were first class. The ink dried quickly, the reproduction was perfect. Then my HP printer died on me, and having heard good reviews of the Epson SX535WD, which boasts 'lab quality prints' I assumed that it would print on acetates at least as good as my old HP Photosmart. Silly me - the results on ink-jet acetates are dire! I've called Epson's Helpline who tell me what I suspected was the case (and charged me for the call!), namely, few Epson printers support the use of ink-jet acetate film. To make matters worse, the price of the printer has dropped to little more than the price of a set of genuine Epson cartridges, which are a high price and have low capacity.
So, the bottom line from my perspective is that these Q-Connect Universal Ink-Jet acetates are excellent provided your printer supports the use of ink-jet film, and from what Epson 'Helpline' staff (and a supervisor)tell me, most Epson printers - certainly those bought for home/office use - don't. If your printer does support the use of acetates, I'd by this product and recommend to others with confidence.
I've written this review because another reviewer with an Epson printer wrote an adverse review about these ink-jet acetates, when it seems that the problem may well have been with the Epson printer, as it is with mine, which is beyond the control of the manufacturer of the film. When I've used up my catridges, it will have to go, and I'll research alternative printers which are up to the task, which rules out Epson.
