Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer
I have been using Epson C88+ printers for about 10 years. I started with a C88, and then upgraded to C88+. I do some large print runs, and one of the features I like best about this (and other Epson models) is the separate ink cartridges for each color instead of a tri-color cartridge. Some projects use a lot of blue and little red, etc., and I don't have to change the whole cartridge when I run out of just one color. I have probably had 7 C88+ printers over the years, and am glad they are still making them.

Epson Stylus C88+
I have two computers running on different OS: a desktop with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and an old notebook running WIN 98SE. This was one of the few printers with drivers that would span the systems.
The printer installed entirely Plug & Play in Ubuntu and very easily into WIN 98SE with the CD. Have only had it a few days however if it's anything like my last Epson, I expect great service for a long time to come.

I love my Epson C88 printer, ergo, I continue to order my cartridges online, and have always trusted nothing less than the Authentic Epson products to keep my printer working properly all these 5+ years.
I love to create my own printed out cards for all occasions - and they all come out perfectly!
I will continue to use ONLY Epson ...

Epson's Secret Treasure
I've owned several Epson printers over the years, but none of them beats the Stylus 88+ for crisp printing, durability, reliability, everything you hope for in a printer. The design is retro, for sure, but looks should be last on your list of qualities. This is a powerful, dedicated machine that will become your good friend.

Great little workhorse
After using a C82 for thousands of pages, it finally met it's end and was replaced with a pair of C84s. These ran for many thousands of pages as well so when these finally reached their service limit, I naturally chose the last of the family line, C88. The best features are the straight through paper path and the nearly waterproof inks. These are truly spectacular plain paper printers for normal documents, labels and such. Photos, not so much, but they work in a pinch even for that.

I would recommend this printer to a friend, good price and very good pictures. Ink is expensive, since it takes 4 cartridges.

I've used Epson printers for about 15 years and every one of them has been great. I just ordered my second C88+ as the one I've been using for 7 years is finally wearing out. Print quality is excellent, it's easy to use and doesn't drink ink like a thirsty camel. Compatibility and ease of use with a Mac is appreciated as well.

This is my third Epson C88 printer and I have been pleased with all. I do a lot of cards and other printing and I like the clear colors I get.
I only get a new one when it says "service needed" some parts have reach their life. When this happens don't know what to do are how to fix it, therefore I just gat a new one.

I haven't been able to get it to work properly at all. First, I had to buy a connector cable so I could actually USE it (since one was not provided with my printer) and now that I have done that and set it up, the printer does one of two things: runs paper through it without printing, or prints pages and pages of gibberish...last time I turned it on, it spewed 110 pages of randomness at me.

Epson Stylus C88+
The Epson Stylus C88+ printer is a great printer. This one is not my first one. It does a great job for everyday printing needs, and does a good job on special projects and photos. One of the best features it has had in the past is the ability to print preview. Unfortunately, Epson has decided not to include this feature when using the C88+ with Windows 7. Also a number of maintenance features are not included with the Windows 7 software for the C88+. I would think Espson would lose more than just me as a customer in the future because of not fully supporting its products. I certainly did not get a price break for buying a product that is not fully supported. In fact, there was a price increase when comparing the printer to other C88+ printers I have previously purchased.
