Epson America Stylus C62 5760x720dpi Inkjet 4-color 14ppm BLK 10ppm Color

Fantastic Printer


Have an Epson C62 at home and an Epson Photo 1280 at work. The C62 prints photos much better than the more expensive 1280. I print pictures off a 2 million pixel Canon digital camera to the C62. Anyone who sees them including the professional video,...
