¹ We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges. The use of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “Replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. See www.epson.com/ cartridgeinfo for more information about cartridges.
² Colour photo speed on Premium Photo Paper Glossy measured from start of paper feed. Additional processing time will vary based on system configuration, software application and page complexity. See www.epson.com/printspeed for more information about print speeds.

Have owned this printer for 10 days now and have been very happy with the print quality. Printed some landscapes on epson luster paper and the results rival that of my smugmug prints which I consider to be very high quality.
