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


WHAT'S HOT: The Stylus C62 demonstrates impressive print speed considering its modest $99 price. Lexmark's Z55se Color Jetprinter and Canon's I850 Photo Printer beat its text speed of 6.2 pages per minute--but both cost more. The C62's 1.6-ppm speed...

The C62's prints--except for photos--don't look great. Textappeared slightly grayish and rough around the edges; in our line tests, narrowparallel lines overlapped to give the appearance of wide stripes; and colorgraphics looked dotted

The Stylus C62 provides zippy printing for an affordable price, but home users might be wary of its steep ink prices and mediocre text quality.

Printer did a great job when I downloaded images from the internet. It was pretty fast for an inexpensive printer and I liked the fact that the cartridges were much cheaper than the ones for my old HP.

Fast and reliable printer with good graphics and text.I was very happy with my investment in this printer

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,...
