Working in tandem with Claria® Hi–Definition Ink, the “smart nozzles” in Epson’s exclusive MicroPiezo® print head deliver up to five droplet sizes, some as small as 1.5 picoliters, to produce exceptionally smooth gradations, amazingly accurate skin tones and sharp, grain–free photos.

Built–in Auto Photo Correction automatically evaluates and corrects digital images — better than the competition. It even includes advanced face detection, which distinguishes people from scenery, correcting the color accordingly to ensure beautiful, natural skin tones.

Versatile paper handling

It’s never been easier to get what you want, when you want it. With the Artisan 50’s adjustable paper tray, you can print a variety of things, from 4x6 photos to legal–size documents.

Paper & Ink

 

Prints that outlast photo lab prints

Six–color Claria Hi–Definition Ink, together with Epson premium photo papers, offers the ultimate combination of photo quality and longevity. Prints made with Claria ink last up to four times longer than those from a traditional photo lab2. Photos last up to 98 years on display under glass and over 200 years in an album. Photos from the leading competitor last only 65 years on display under glass. With Epson, you can feel confident in sharing your prints for generations to come.


Cheetah

Be more informed

The new international ISO print speed standard

Print speed is critically important when buying a printer or all-in-one. But how do you compare print speeds when different manufacturers measure in different ways? Now you can. Much like the "MPG" ratings on new cars, there's now a new industry standard for measuring print speed, which allows for an "apples-to-apples" comparison between different printer models and brands. The International Organization for Standardization (widely known as ISO) developed this industry approved and internationally accepted standard, specifically for ink jet printers and all-in-ones. It measures "out of the box" (default) print speeds using "real world" printing scenarios, so you can be sure you're getting a product that performs at the speed you need.

We have purchase over 200 of these printers (even here at Amazon)
and they are pretty good - until you run out of ink.

The Ink can print you about 2-3 months worth if used every
other day or so. But our customers, including ourselves,
have had nothing but head aches when it comes to changing
Ink Cartridges. 47 Customers have complained it will NOT
ACCEPT 'GENUINE' Epson Cartridges. We owned 4 of them and
all 4 are currently wrapped up in their boxes ready to throw
out or send to a recycling center. All 4 printers
printed through 1 ink cycle - then they started rejecting all
ink replacements. We bought ink here at Amazon - rejected.
We tried the tech trick of pulling out the electrical cord,
and the USB cord, and it did accept 2 or 3 cartridges,
but eventually it started to reject all of them in time.
Keep in mind this printer has gotten fairy good reviews
the past year - some individuals are being successful
with the printer but we suspect many reviews were
written before their 1st ink cycle went dry.

We noticed that (after installing the printers) The Epson
software started accessing the internet (or at least trying
to). This was to block any 3rd party Ink cartridges - because
on one of the printers that WAS NOT on the internet - it actually
acceptable 1 black ink 3rd party cartridge. The rest were
rejected - even the "Genuine" Epson Cartridges.

Its difficult enough to have to purchase expensive
"Genuine" ink for these printers - but to have them
rejected by your fairly new printer is appalling. We
have over 46 "genuine" ink cartridges that have been
returned to us (we no longer sell the ink).

You have probably read a great deal of reviews about how wonderful the Epson Artisan 50 printer is. And as far as printing goes, especially on CDs, those reviews are spot on. Only one problem. I will wager the overwhelming majority of those 5 star reviews are coming from people who have yet to go through their first replacement cartridge cycle. Oh what a surprise they have in store for them. The SOB corporate scum at Epson engineered the printers to a) use only 60-70% of the ink in their OEM cartridges, b) retailed their own 6 OEM cartridges at prices ranging from a minimum of 350% to over 1200% of what non-OEM ink cartridge suppliers are charging (up to $35 a single cartridge) and c) have a chip-reset technology installed in the printers which will "fail to recognize" the vast majority of all non-OEM catridges and an estimated 33% of the GENUINE OEM cartridges. This is AFTER the company was sued in a 2006 case for doing the exact same thing and then went out and re-engineered the Artisan series of printers to be even WORSE!

I swear to gawd, you can't make this crap up. As is well known, it only requires one cartridge requiring replacement in an Artisan model to disable the entire machine. Meaning that if you have a black print job to do and the yellow or light magenta cartridge is below it's functional level (usually meaning 30-40% of the ink remains but can't be used due to the technology they installed to rip people off), you can't finish your black only print job. And NO...every one of the six colors is NOT required to print black like I have heard some wags out there stating falsely. Even if that were true, in an emergency where you needed to print a single black text page out, you couldn't even print it in lighter gray to get by. If you buy the non-OEM cartridges you might...

This is a fantastic printer for the casual user, but can be problematic for critical uses.

This is the 6th Epson printer we've used. When printing out from Adobe Illustrator on all previous models, the size of the printout exactly matches the design.

When trying to print CD inserts on our new Artisan 50, booklets that are designed to be 119.5mm, end up being almost 125mm. May not sound like much, but once they're cut, they don't fit in the CD box. It's very slow and tedious to modify all our layouts that are on file.

Previous models capable of printing on CD's (such as the Stylus Photo R300) were dead on accurate.

The other annoying problem is that you can't print from Illustrator directly to CD any longer. That was a great feature of the R300. In the Artisan 50, you have to use their amateurish CD print utility.

This is my first Epson printer. I've always owned HP but I was particularly interested in being able to print CD/DVD labels. I've owned this printer now for a couple of days and am totally pleased. The directions for getting started were easy, and I was able to begin use immediately. The quality of the labels are excellent, good color, looks professional and it prints quickly. I am not one to usually review products but this one, I found well worth the money, value, and am happy that I made the purchase. The only thing I'd change would be for the software that comes with the CD/DVD printer format, I wish it did more but I find it sufficient. I'd definitely recommend. Does well with documents as well.\\
