Epson Stylus Photo 1270

 

The Epson Stylus Photo 1270, the smaller format Stylus Photo 870 and the Stylus Photo 875DC printers represent the absolute best in current inkjet photo printing technology at the time of this writing

Every year Epson brings out a new line of printers and each year they get better. I can't imagine what they will do next year to top these printers because they already produce the same photo quality as prints made in color photo labs

I bought this thing. It's great
