This little printer indeed produces stunning prints right out of the box. But your smile will dim a bit when you realize that each ink cartridge runs out about 3/4 of the way through the provided paper in each pack, and that separate cartridges cannot be purchased. Oh well, so it's really more like 40 cents a print, instead of the 25 cents advertised. You can live with that, right? But you let the printer sit a few days, maybe even a few weeks without printing anything. Then you try to print again and the photos come out looking a horrible, banded mess. So you run a test pattern and clean the print heads -- usually between 2 and 5 times before a clean pattern prints out again. But you then find out each cleaning cycle drains the cartridge tremendously, so much that a brand new cartridge will only yield around 40 prints (which =$1.00 a print!!) if the cleaning cycle is used even 3 times, which seems to be absolutely necessary whenever the printer sites idle for more than a day.
In short, this printer seduces you with beauty, then steals your wallet. I have a stack of unused photo paper over a foot high, but I'm always out of ink! Of course, Epson could sell a cleaning cartridge for this, or sell the ink cartridges separately, or even expand the ink capacity, or even just advertise the real amount on images you'll get from each pack. But then they would miss out on all that glorious revenue, and they know you won't raise a big fuss over such a small initial investment (like the people who bought their much more expensive pro printers). You'll just stop using it and go back to sending out for prints. So I guess this negative review is for the people who have not bought one yet, and for the extremely remote chance that epson reads amazon reviews and then decides to do the right thing an offer solo replacement cartridges for us poor suckers who did buy one.
I first put this printer to the test in August where I took pictures of event goers and printed images right away. My pc has good memory and processor speed. There was not a lot of programs installed on the pc to slow it down. I was still using the ink and paper starter pack. The ink lasted throughout the 20 page starter pack. Images were printed at 600dpi. Printing time was about 41sec.
I used the printer again for a four-hour photo booth event. Again, images printed at 600dpi. Printing time about 41-44 sec. Used only one battery pack. I kept a stack of paper loaded at a time (looked like 20 sheets but I didn’t have time for exact measurements). I fanned the paper on both ends before loading to prevent sticking.
While in-between events, I did have to run maintenance to remove streaks after not printing for about a week. I believe this is problematic with most Epson and Canon inkjet photo dedicated printers. I have Canon Pro-100 and I run a print job at least once every two weeks to prevent the print head from clogging. Paper is stored flat to prevent curling.
To carry this printer, I use one of my wheeled duffle travel bags. I set the printer in the foam base that shipped with the box. It helps to stabilize the printer in the travel bag. I have room for extra ink and paper and battery packs. You can use the box it shipped in, especially since it has a handle.
Overall, this is a decent printer. The printer paper is not water resistant. I only used a drop of water to test that theory. Keep in mind that print heads may clog with non-use.
A quick note: The manual states to allow the print head to charge when a new ink cartridge is installed. Not doing so will cause the printer to use more ink.
