Shut down notice & inks

My C88+ was the third Epson I've owned. It was 2 years old and the C88 [at about 18 months] both shut down on an "end-of-expected-life" error message - - and both became immediately useless. This time it was VERY FRUSTRATING because I was in the middle of a lengthy business document and it left me with unfinished work. If Epson is going to limit the lifetime, how about also including a warning of pending "end-of-life." One other item, earlier models had the option of a “standard capacit...

My C88+ was the third Epson I've owned. It was 2 years old and the C88 [at about 18 months] both shut down on an "end-of-expected-life" error message - - and both became immediately useless. This time it was VERY FRUSTRATING because I was in the middle of a lengthy business document and it left me with unfinished work. If Epson is going to limit the lifetime, how about also including a warning of pending "end-of-life." One other item, earlier models had the option of a “standard capacityâ€� black ink cartridge or a “high capacityâ€� black ink cartridge. This was eliminated on the C88+ model; a very unfriendly consumer decision by Epson because â€" guess what, MOST print work is in BLACK. PS: The high capacity black ink for the C88 WILL work in the C88+, it does not fit well and a little force must be use â€" but it does work. [I had left over unopened High Capacity cartridges when the C88 failed and tried one just to see if it would work â€" and it did.]

Disappointed

I'm a long time Epson user and fan. Generally, I feel good about recommending their products that products that I've used to others. However, I've got really mixed feelings about the C88+. I purchased one to replace a C80 that died. On the plus side, it's faster, less expensive, less prone to streaking when left to sit a long time between print jobs, seems to print photos better. On the negative side, it seems to go through consumables faster -- probably the downside of self cleaning that red...

I'm a long time Epson user and fan. Generally, I feel good about recommending their products that products that I've used to others. However, I've got really mixed feelings about the C88+. I purchased one to replace a C80 that died. On the plus side, it's faster, less expensive, less prone to streaking when left to sit a long time between print jobs, seems to print photos better. On the negative side, it seems to go through consumables faster -- probably the downside of self cleaning that reduces streaking, and also a result of the fact that the black cartridge is no longer larger than the color ones. And most annoyingly, the paper handling is awful. I rarely print a multi-page job without getting blank pages where multiple pieces of paper are pulled in. The slightest crease or wrinkle produces jams, tears or smudged output. And finally, the output tray is shorter, often resulting on output on the floor.

4th one I've owned

By

I also have an Epson XP-410, but quickly found that I used it almost entirely as a scanner or color copier. I'm on my 4th C-88+ which does almost everything I need. I saw one site that they had discontinued this one. I sure hope not, this style is going the way of the dinosaur. I'd buy another for back up when this one gives up, but can I be sure of getting the ink for another five years? I frequently do large batch printing and these machines don't falter until they get old and creaky and have a problem feeding paper. About three years of steady use in my office.

Epson Stylus C88

By

It's a good workhorse; colors are clear and accurate although the inks are only the three primary colors, plus black. Economical price. The only thing I miss is the capability to print DVD covers. As always, Epson printers are the ones to buy for dependable service for many years to come.

The C88+ printer

By

I started out with a C88 a long time ago and liked it. I then purchased an NX420 which has the capability of scanning and enlarging. I also have the C88+ printer which is my main printer. It is Fast, Quiet and so easy to maintain. It gives excellent quality to anything I want printed, either in brilliant black and sharp color printing as well. I would not hesitate to recommend this to all my friends---and I do.

Epson Stylus C88+

By

In general, printer is good enough for every day projects. Just one features is not good, the ink happened to use very very fast and we have to buy replacement ink cartridges very often. So, for this kind of price, this printer is good enough.

Initial opinion.

By

Recently my 2009 "Artisan 50" began to produce prints with pale 1/16" horizontal lines at 1" vertical spacing Two days of fiddling with cleaning fluid, squirted from a syringe though the carriage ink spikes and other cleaning procedures was to no avail! (If I choose "Text" or "Text & Image" I get lines. If I choose "Photo" or "Best Photo" I get good text or photo prints!) I bought the C88+ since I previously owned a C80. I liked the the waterproof "Durabright" inks that don't soak into the paper or "show though" on double sided printing. (I had to use 28lb paper to be able to print on two sides with the "Claria" inks used in the Artisan 50). I have run a few test prints though the new C88+ and obtained the expected satisfactory results. I was not able to use the Printer Software CD since each of the 10 times I tried to it only came up on the screen in French. I can see that the CD does have the installation procedure in English. I gave, plugged the printer into my computer, and used the "Installation Wizard" software for newly detected Hardware! It worked. Thank you for a nice home use inkjet printer. Now you just need to halve the cost of your inks! Gordon Hindle. 40 years a Technical Illustrator.
