I have the Epson C84 Photo Edition and love it compared to my old Canon bubble jet. It's very quick and gives great results, ink is dirt cheap if you buy generic and it does excellent photo printing.
Would have to say that it is not quiet though! Pretty violent when in full flow, though you do get about 14ppm which for an ink jet is very impressive.
Highly reccomended with a good software package, though they do skimp and not provided a USB cable.
Hope that helps
