You don't say which model of Epson, so hard to recommend. The two that i have had personal use of though are HP 7350. Excellent at photo's and of course the top of the PCA charts. Canon i850, a superb printer with photo output that will not be equalled by "normal" processing and black text you can cut your fingers on! It's a four tank printer, [One for each colour] and so quiet you need to double check that it's on. j.
