I have had an Epson R300 since they came out, and while the prints are really good, I don't think the printers are all that. Ink cartridges are reported empty, when they aren't, so you have to throw away ink. My CD tray has to be manualy pushed in to get it started each time. But I am not alone. I have heard endless complaints from Epson users. The alternative is Canon, and I know a few members here use them. I would be interested to hear what they have to say.

However, if you are going to stay with Epson, I would just purchase the R220. It is the same as the R320, except you don't get a little preview monitor. But who needs that, when you have a great big monitor on your desk (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

when you say went out what do you mean? i have a r 300 and a little trick i learnt is that with the printer off hold the stop and maintainence buttons , then hold down the 'on' button as well for a few seconds.this re-sets all the counters,so if you have the 'nag' about a service it's gone.
i think the printers itself is good, with good prints, but agree with bazzah about the ink monitor, but personally i use cheap generic ink,(15 for 3 full sets) so wasting a little doesn't bother me.

I have used the Epson printers for over ten years now, finding them the best blend of cost, print quality and ease of sourcing inks. If you get the "parts in your printer require service" or similar message, you can D/L the "SSC service utility" which will allow you to reset the printer, works fine with all my R200 & R300's

Thank's all for your help.

I've been using an R220 for 4 months now. Very pleased. But I also have a CIS and waste tank attached, which extends the life of the printer. I Dont know the difference between R200 and R220. Google that.
