    Hello.

    I just wondered if anyone has an Epson R300M?

    If so I just wondered how you rate it? Also, I had a question about
    the ink... Does the software or the printer itself tell you when any
    particular ink cartridge inside needs replacing? And what is it like
    cost wise replacing these carts? It has 6 of them doesn't it?

    I'm hoping to do a lot of photo printing, plus printing direct onto
    blank CDR, as well as black printed letters.

    Finally, paper for photos, how much is it costing for the Epson? And
    do you use Epson own kind is that best? Or would you use Kodak paper
    or something else?

    Thanks very much for your help

    The answer is yes to everything. I love the 300. The colors are stunning and
    the operation is flawless. Each ink level is indicated before every print. I
    get Epson paper cheap at COSTCO. I can replace a set of inks for about $85 at
    Fry's You'll love it

    Go for the R200 and save some money, the lcd monitor is a utter joke, and its
    far far cheaper to get your prints done outside..

    The Ink taks are monitored, plus it far cheaper to use Jet Tec tanks as they
    have 30% more ink..

    Its not a cheap printer to run..

    What's wrong with the LCD? Poor quality?

    Are these Jet Tec ones made by Epson? Are they the same quality and do
    they last as long the colours if you're printing photos?

    >Its not a cheap printer to run..


    Is the R200 cheaper to run? And will it accept Smart Media cards from
    digital cameras?

    Cheers for your help

    No to small to be of use, a mate has a 925 printer that has the saame LCD and
    he is pissed off with it, due to its small size.

    Lighfast is a high permanence ink and JetTec speak for durabrite types. My
    initial feedback from users is that the 30% extra ink release chip is
    appreciated as the combi units can use quite a lot of ink...

    Hi John,

    I have the R200 which is basically the same without features. It prints
    extremely well. Very nice. Inks seem to last a fair amount of time. You
    would be well served by it. I personally like the quality and printed
    several images with it. Does an excellent job on Kodak paper. I see prices
    around 12.00 per cartridge at CompUSA. I think they offer a discount from
    their site as a new user.

    Talk to you soon,

    Epson has the Oliver Cromwell award :)

    Thanks for everyones help. Just one last question though, what is the
    difference between the basic R300 and R200? Is it just the smart media
    card reader and thats it? From checking the specs I cant spot much
    difference except in price.
