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.

epson c 88 + ink jet printer
I like the cost of unit;fairly priced
Ink packets are reasonable.
Puts out as good a print as others that I have seen;
prints good photographs too!
I'm satisfied with this for my home desk top unit.
I would not hesitate to purchase another if the need occurs.

I have been using the Epson Printers I think ever since they start making them and I can't say enough good things about them. I use the Epson C-88 for everything and it prints great. I just hope they keep making them because in my opinion they are the best. They do wear out but after a long printing life. I do a lot of picture flyers and would not change printers unless they stopped making them. I have never had any trouble with them. I prefer the single printer over the all- in -one.
Good Job Epson

A workhorse of a printer, the fifth one we have owned. The previous four were replaced as each reached it's 'End of Life Cycle.' This is one of the last printers that will work on Win 98 forward to Win7. We are using computers with all those OS because of legacy software and the C88+ doesn't miss a beat. Another valuable feature is it's printing speed...it flies! Epson, please don't stop making it.

Love It! I print on handmade paper and love the fact that the printer handles individual sheets of varying width.

no ink level monitor runs out of ink quickly
Using this printer with Windows 7 Home SP1. There is no driver that allows ink level monitor. The printer stops printing with red light on ink level after printing less than 50 pages . All cartridges contain plenty of ink. The whole idea of separate cartridges is useless since when any cartridge is empty the printer stops printing. This product is designed to make Epson money selling ink cartridges period.

I wouldn't have anything else
I started with a C88 then after 5 years, I got my first C 88+, I am now on my 2 nd C88+ and ready for another, even though this one still works great.
I print many recipe cards and the ink for this printer does not bleed when it is exposed to water.
I cannot find another printer that does this.
I also have an Epson Artisan 810 that only prints when it wants to, the ink bleeds so bad it can't be used for my cards. Waste of money in my opinion.
