Ok, I'm REALLY tardy on this one. I wanted to make sure I tried it out completely before I posted a review so I could write my honest opinion of it.
The scanner is awesome! Check out this photo I scanned of my baby picture (this had to be in 1985/1986 sometime) There isn't any graininess to it or anything! Oh, did I mention it scanned and saved to my LAPTOP! Yes! All other scanners I've seen only saves to the computer it's actually hooked up to, but with the 2.5" LCD screen with the menu I had the choice of where I wanted it scanned to! Actually if you saw my Grandparent's Day post, those 2 pictures were scanned with this scanner too! The scanner is also a copier and I've only used that once, but when I did, it was awesomeness! I had to send in a copy of Jaylin's birth certificate, last year for Jeffery's I had my dad copy it (he also has an Epson printer/copier/scanner, but different model) One thing I haven't played around with, but I should have with this baby picture of mine, it has a built in photo restoration, no need to use the computer! Oh, you don't even need a computer to print out pictures, it has built in memory card slots, just print from the card and go! Awesome right?
The one thing Jeff said he didn't like about the printer, it uses up ink quickly. It could have been the pictures I printed for my photography class that used a lot up, but the black ink is already low. We don't print a whole lot out anyways, but when we do, it seems to drain the ink. Ink isn't too expensive though, black ink is only $16.99 on Epson's site, color ink for all 3 is $37.04 on Epson's site.
I love this printer, it works great for us, and especially since we take a lot lot lot of digital pictures, it's nice to have a printer that can print out those pictures nicely so we can have hard copies, or be able to give them to someone. The price isn't horrible either, the regular price is $149.99 but right now you can go to Epson and buy it for $99.99 after $50 instant rebate! It also includes your first set of ink cartridges!
