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...

I'm replacing mine.

 

Easy to set up. Photos are sharp.

The colors are way off, especially the reds.

Durable, high quality, uses little ink

 

I've had my R300 for years + I'm paying almost $150 parts+labor to have the rolling paper-grabber replaced because it's the first and only problem I've had and it still prints beautifully (when it takes the paper). I've probably printed 400,000 pages...

Perfect output, uses ink up according to USER'S settings (paper type, etc), extremely reliable.

Slow on the final draft. An 8X10 with optimal settings can take a whole minute.

More pros than cons

 

Initially I bought this printer over the comparable HP version because of the price. The printer has some short comings but overall I've been happy with the purchase. Memory Card Reader - One of the best features of this printer is the memory card ...

memory card reader, prints cds/dvds, high quality photo printing, cheaper than comparable HP

heavy ink usage, small cartridges, cd/dvd loader loads improperly

Consumer review by: ogman (epinions.com)

Good idea, horribly executed.

 

I've had the displeasure of owning three of these and they all had the same problems. I bought the printer for one purpose and only one purpose, to print on CDs and DVDs. Each and every one of them had suffered from the same problems, they cannot do...

Prints nice color labels on CDs and DVDs.

Doesn't do much of anything without major user interaction.

Very good light-duty cd-printer

 

I bought the refurbished printer online several months ago at a very low price ($60 delivered). The low price was due to there being no ink cartridges included. I had researched several printers and this Epson series will eventually have a near-cult ...

Low cost,bulk ink compatible, beautiful photos, will print cd's, media-card reader, borderless photo.

Occasionally hangs, heavy paper feed problems, slow cd printing, wastes a lot of ink.

Jury is still out

 

The R300 is one of the Stylus line with the added feature that it prints directly on "inkjet printable" CDs and DVDs. It does this through the use of a special "feeder tray" which is inserted into a manual flap which folks out of the front, so that the...

great to print on CDs and DVDs

expensive ink -- but be careful about generic replacements

One of the necessary evils in my life.

 

Epson Stylus Photo R300 Ink-Jet Printer I just read the only other review of this printer and was disappointed by it. The writer recommends avoiding this printer. While my experience hasn't driven me so far as to recommend it, I'm much ...

High-quality finished products.

Suffering through the near-monopoly on ink cartridges.
