I bought the Epson Stylus C88+ printer in a pinch when I was tired of being asked to order expensive ink using the Dell printer that came free with a computer. My roommate recommended an Epson brand printer and I picked one without any research. I regret selecting an ink-jet rather than a laser printer. It printed my wedding invitations pretty well, but I don't like how little you can print on the cartridges and how expensive the cartridges are. The printer requires separate ink cartridges in black, pink, cyan, and yellow. You are unable to print if you don't have the correct cartridges in all the slots. I don't find that one cartridge allows that many sheets printed. I don't use the printer much, mostly for printable coupons. The quality has degraded some and I find it is now feeding the paper in on a slant. Needless to say I'm watching out for a good deal on a laser printer that won't eat up my money in ink.
