Still to use it on photo prints.


I researched this in particular for my small office needs. I needed to replace a small HP Deskjet that was excellent but finally died. I bought this to fit into the small space available, for the color and for the reputed ability to use multiple color...

Set-up was easy. Relatively small space. Dialog box on computer to advise of ink and paper

Paper support extensions are very light weight. I'm afraid I will break them

Not worth the trouble!


My neighbor bought this printer and has had much trouble with it. He relies on me to get it running; something that is difficult to do. The first print was deemed defective by Epson, so after numerous attempts with tech support – and no luck getting it...

Haven't found that feature yet, but still looking

Good DVD printer


I bought this printer specifically to print DVDs, which it does well. I wish it had an ethernet jack so I could connect to my network and print from any computer. I read that it uses a lot of ink, but I haven't had any experience replacing cartridges yet.

Good for printing on DVDs

Wish it had an ethernet jack to connect to network

Great CD/DVD label top printer for low volume.


So far so good. This is a great alternative to investing in a professional grade high volume CD/DVD duplicator and label maker. It is easy to use and it is quiet.About me... small business owner

Produces high quality label tops on printable CD/DVDs. Easy to use software

Not made for high volume production (slow time per disc)

The color is great!


I'm operating Mac OS 4, and most printers now require 10.5. I was worried that I'd have to replace a perfectly good computer. I don't need a fax, copier or scanner. The Artisan 50 was exactly what I needed, and it will operate 10.3 and above. The...

The software make printing easy

The day is young. Haven't found anything yet
