Epson Stylus C86

 

Like the C66, the C86 uses Epson's DuraBrite inks, with a separate cartridge for each color. Epson likes to stress that these inks are water-, smudge-, and light-resistant. We found the water and smudge resistance less robust immediately after printing...

Text rates as excellent. Photos are just short of excellent. DuraBrite ink is water-resistant once dry

Plain paper with full-page or nearly full page graphics tends to curl. Slight banding in graphics in default mode

Few ink jets produce better-looking output than the Epson Stylus C86, especially for text. Performance is less than ideal, but not slow enough to be a major problem. And our rundown tests peg its cost per page as relatively low for both monochrome and...

It's inexpensive and not a bad looker, but this case's build quality lets it down

Epson Stylus C86 Inkjet Printer

 

Epson's DuraBrite® is a pigment-based ink technology that not only gives superior image quality, but provides water, smudge, and light resistance. Note that Epson guarantees only the ink to be resistant to water and fading, not the paper you use to...

Epson Stylus C86 Photo Edition

 

USB printers are all the rage nowadays, but some people might still want to print using their parallel port.

For the few people who require a colour printer but aren't quite so fussy about their photos, this is a fair option, though its higher-than-average price tag, especially when compared to rivals with similar features, means it can't offer the same value...

Overall good product

 

Got 8 of them so far, screws and screw holes are not well done you need to use strenght to get them in. No SSD solution included, think of getting yours with your SSD.Other then that good case, really like the white clean look

Very good case for the price

 

I've had several cases in the past that had too many bulky pieces inside and harder to organize. This case uses the power supply at the bottom of the case and has many fan openings. I'm using an Intel processor and have 7 fans (including original...

EPSON Stylus C86 22 ppm 5760 x 1440 dpi InkJet Personal Color Printer

 

Printer worked great at first, but ink clogged in the printer heads. Cleaning couldn't fix it, so Epson sent me a new one. Same thing happened to the new one, heads clogged again.
