This Hi-Definition photo printer uses Epson Claria Photographic Ink to produce photos that look better, and last longer, than those from the lab. You can print borderless photos up to A4 size, and 10x15 cm photos print in as little as 12 seconds.
The powerful software supplied makes it easy to enhance images and remove imperfections such as red-eye. You can also add a personal touch to your discs by printing directly onto suitable CDs and DVDs. It´s cost-effective too, because with individual inks you only have to replace the colour used.

The quality of the photo prints is superb, but it also does well for some general office printing. The only complaint is that the first ink cartridges run out quite quickly since they are needed to prime the printer, but thankfully you can buy individual inks of the colours you use most often.
UPDATE 18.05.2011 I have now managed to find a compatible Ink cartridges that will work with my Epson P50 printer. It is a JetTec Multipack E80. I paid £19.99 for a set of six, roughly a third of Epson's price, and my printer is now back in business.
Installation took only a couple of minutes following the detailed instructions and it was up and running.
The quality of print is excellent and it is fast too. I have previously run an R300 and this is a very worthwhile replacement. Photo quality is easily as good as the R300 and it is very quiet in operation. I would recommend this printer especially to people who are printing photographs.
It shows the remaining levels while it is printing which is helpful too.
I have found that it is easily capable of printing on fairly weighty papers, I have been able to print on card about 200 micron thick or 260 gsm weight.
A very good all-round printer at a reasonable cost.
The Epson ink cartridges are expensive, but there are plenty of compatibles about at a fraction of the price.
I haven't tried compatible ink cartridges yet with the P50 but I have done a fair bit of colour printing, including borderless photos, heavy card and CDs. It's handled all of them with no fuss, no misfeeds and all my CD designs work nicely in the latest version of the excellent Print CD software. Ink consumption seems OK so far - I've done quite a lot of printing and none of the cartridges is less than two thirds full. The print speed is fine and it's not too noisy. So despite some of the reviews I think Epson have got it right with this one.
Several months on and I'm still on the original cartridges, despite printing on lots of CDs plus a few photo & other colour prints. Maybe I'll even stick with real Epson inks. I've never had any clogged cartridges or paper misfeeds and CDs print perfectly (unlike the old R200 which needed you to nudge the CD tray in at the right time to get started).
I read on one report that one customer was unable to use his printer because he had the Microsoft XP. I had no trouble connecting to my computer with the Microsoft XP programm.
