I bought one of these to replace a HP which gave me great prints with minimum effort but which suffered paper feed problems. The Epson produces quality prints but it's not a printer that you just plug in and use IMVHO as if you do that the prints can be quite dark.

Great entry level enthusiast printer, good for a single person printing several photos a day, we had one of these at school and found that the ink cartridges were far to small for two classes of eight people. Problems: Roll paper can be a pain to set up in this printer and image size is fairly limited.

Most of my printing is done straight of Lightroom, and the only ...

However, you have to experiment with different papers and after some sampling I have found that Ilford Smooth Pearl paper gives ...
