Stylus Photo R300M


Produces the highest-quality photos available for the price. Many extras including colour LCD screen, CD/DVD printing and card slots.

Photo printing is slow. Image quality not in same league as Epson's own R800. Direct printing technology often irrelevant.

Via the port on the front of the printer, you can connect and print directly from a digital camera that supports Canon's PictBridge or Epson's USB Direct Print technology. Manufacturers whose cameras support USB Direct Print include Casio, Minolta, and...

Super Small Ink Cart. - Don't waste your money.


Purchased after my HP print heads finally ran out. Was cheaper to buy this printer than replace heads. ** Or so I thought. ** Little did I know that I would have to buy ink every 20 pages. It is to be expected that they get you with the ink - but Epson...

There is no good reason to buy this garbage printer. Or any printer from this company

Ink constantly runs out - with very little actual printing. Quality decent only when running in slowest possible (hi-res) mode. Otherwise, normal print (even for black & white text) sucks

Absolutely Top-Notch!!


I have owned this printer for about two years now, and would not trade it for anything else. The prints that come from this printer are absolutely superior to any other printer of comparable specs. The level of quality that this Epson presents is, in a...

Looks good

Waste of time and money

Great Print but it WILL COST YOU


Epson has great quality in their prints/colors. I must say that this printer which I have owned for about 5 months now is very very expensive to refill. Also I hate the fact you can not print without ALL yes I said ALL of the ink cartridges with some...

Very VIVID and Color Matching a Photo is Great

Nice when not in use


This is a nice printer for quality and it has the nice advantage of the cd tray that makes it so that we can put cds directly into the printer. The con is that this thing takes up soooo much ink and if you run out of example yellow ink and you need to...

CD tray for printing directly to cds, nice quality

This things guzzles more ink than a hummer

A good cd printer, tends to jam


I bought this principally to print CD labels. One of the problems with the printer is that the CDs are placed on a plastic carrier, and subsequently dragged into the printer to be printed. The lip of the carrier tends to become warped. As the carrier...

The colors are way off, especially the reds.
