EPSON LQ-590 24 pins Impact Printer

 

A versatile high speed printer with good print quality. Great owners manual with good directions for setting up the printer in various feed modes. We have used it for the past 3 years to print continuous feed labels. Works great, just do not turn the...

Never, never, never turn the big knob on the side of the printer when it is on as you will negate the electronic set point. Horrible Tech support manned by people in a foreign country with limited knowledge of the English language and limited knowledge...

Replaced a Panasonic with this printer

 

I replaced a Panasonic KX-P3196 with this printer. I couldn't be happier. This printer is faster, quieter, cheaper to operate and has a bigger duty cycle. It started right up with my existing print forms. Very user friendly. I have another Panasonic...

Great Printer

 

This is the 5th one. It replaces our last Epson LQ-870 that finally gave up. Compared to other brands, the ribbon life is great and the durability is super.

Great for printing on 3 part forms

 

We got this printer to use on out 3 part bid sheets- we needed something that would print through all 3 carbon pages- and it does- with ease. My only gripe is that it leaves marks on the 2nd and 3rd pages where the wheels move the paper a long- they...

One of the few Impact printers still around

 

I needed this printer for a library application, crating spine and card labels, that I created a few years back. There aren't many impact printers available for the consumer market and Epson has always had one of the most reliable ones.

EPSON LQ-590 24PIN NARR 529CPS PAR

 

I had an older version of this printer for years. It was slow and the paper got stuck no matter what I did. I did a lot of research and after calling many places decided to try the new version and I''m glad I did. This is an awesome printer.

Fast printing. Able to get my work done in half of the time. Lightweight, easy to program

None, so far
