Epson Stylus Photo R280
One of the most reliable, efficient printers I have ever owned is the Epson Stylus Photo R280. It's ease of use is one of the best features. If you are looking for a straight out of the box, plug and play printer this is the one for you.
All you need to do is put the CD that is included with the printer in your computer to install the software and drivers then you are ready to go! Another great feature of this Epson Stylus Photo R280 printer is it's Hi-Definition printing quality. Weather you want to print a paper you have to do for school, or load in your own, high quality, matte or glossy photo paper, you will end up with the highest quality each time.
When you go into your print settings, you will notice you have a whole lot of options for photo printing alone! If you are a photographer that enjoys printing your own photographs, this is the machine for you! Exceptional quality for such a low price - a great steal. You can allow your creativity to run wild because get this - this printer even comes with a separate tray to allow your own custom printing onto CDs/DVDs! Perfect to put a little extra spice into any CD you have.
The only downside to having this Epson Stylus Photo R280 printer is its lack of extra features that a lot of other printers on the market have. Other printers allow for importation of data straight onto the printer via SD memory card slot, which the Epson R280 does not offer. Also the lack of a built in scanner makes this printer at a disadvantage if you are attempting to scan anything to your computer, or make any sort of copies via scanner.
That being said, this Epson Stylus printer is perfect for everyday use if you are simply looking to print documents or stunning quality photos. It is available all over the internet, I personally got mine from Amazon for under $150 including shipping! I am very pleased with my purchase. I have had this printer for almost two years and it is just as good as it was the moment I took it out of the box!
