Excellent printouts, but not Epson/Brother compatible
on 14 June 2013
Despite the price, this photopaper is quite heavy and rigid, noticeably thicker than various branded 270gsm glossy paper I bought previously. The paper has a plain white matt back (like white card), so can be loaded upside down to print text on the back (e.g. description, postcard, etc.) Some photopaper brands have a coating on the reverse side that cannot be printed on.
We have two printers - A Canon ip4950 and an Epson XP-305.
Canon: This paper works flawless with the Canon printer and to date has not had a paper jam or where it refused to load. Despite using compatible ink cartridges (Moreinks brand), the colour reproduction is excellent, at least to my eyes.
Epson: No matter how many times I tried loading the paper in the Epson printer (which feeds from the back), it refused to print on it. When I tried printing with the Epson, it would take in and spit out one sheet after another until the paper tray was empty and then display an 'Out of paper' message. If I loaded another brand of 4x6 paper, it would print just fine.
I have tried this paper with someone's multifunction Brother printer, but as most Brother printers feed from the bottom and this paper is quite stiff, the printer either refused to feed it or the paper would get stuck, resulting in a paper jam error. So it's quite likely this paper will not work with any printer that only has bottom paper trays.
If you own a Canon printer and do a lot of printing, this paper is well worth trying. However, between my Epson experience and seeing other users having problems with this paper in their Espon, I cannot recommend this to Epson printer owners or anyone with a printer that does not load paper from the back.
