I Went for the Epson Expression XP 750 a year ago. Its an excellent printer Follows on from the P50. It does print to CD easier than previous Epson's.if you need a fax the Epson Expression XP 800 covers it
I saved £100 when I got mine from Pixnania it arrived in two days, Its a smaller footprint than many Epson's Excellent now that compatibles are available ( As are CISS ) Very easy to install ( I use both USB and WiFi )
I find the paper cartridges fine, and far less mess when changing the ink cartridges which are a different style rhan the Old Square ones The CD/DVD tray is also easier to use.
I used this stuff:
click here, it kept my R220 and R285 going for years more than they should have. You just put a few drops in the cartridge where the nozzle seems to be struggling(leave for a minute or two) and then run the nozzle check/maintenance checks. Wonderful stuff!
Hope this helps.
Buel, I've just received the magic solution -delayed as it came from Germany.
I have only ever removed a cartridge from the R285 when replacing an empty one and for this there is the computer controlled sequence that brings the cartridge holder out so the lid can be lifted. Do you know how I can move the holder out so that I can treat the black and yellow cartridges?
