I've used Epson inkjet printers for many years and have always enjoyed the high quality of the product. As a professional photographer, I'm looking for a printer that renders exceptional quality and that can reproduce my images to my standards. Since the Epson Photo Stylus R800 was my primary photo printer, and is no longer available, I decided to give the Epson Artisan 50 printer a try. I wanted to see if all the boasting about quality really was true. After using the Epson Artisan 50 printer for a couple days, and picking the best settings to use in Adobe Photoshop and Apple's Pages, I wasted little ink and paper to come up with exceptional quality images. The Artisan 50 excelled beyond what I had expected. And since I calibrate my monitor, my prints are greatly accurate, rendering images so close to what I see. Color accuracy, tonal range, sharpness in detail, tonal separation, ink drying time, these qualities hit the mark! Epson has done an great job with this printer. The next thing is to see how long the ink cartridges last. Perhaps my next purchase will be the large capacity #77 inks.

It might be just lousy luck, but even though Epson replaced my first Artisan 50, the second wasn't any better at basic printing. Photographs on both #1 and #2 printed with glitches--thin line-like gaps every inch or so. Well, I don't print photos that often, mostly just documents. But even them! Blotches of black ink often appear on the corners of perfectly smooth sheets of paper and I have to re-print. I'd asked Epson what model replaced my former printer, the Epson Stylus Photo 900, and they said this one. The old printer did everything well, but this one, nothing! I like the faster pace and dust cover, but print quality itself has taken a nose dive. Pay more and get a better model, I say, or just trust to luck on this model.

Clogged Ink Tanks

By Ryan

from Florida

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

I have had two of these printers now. It's not a matter of if but when will the ink tanks become clogged. Because of the built in printhead (which makes fantastic beautiful highly detailed printing available), if the printer is not used consistently, the ink tanks will become clogged and the printer will not be able to be used. On my first printer, the ink tanks become clogged after a month business trip where the printer was not in use. The second printer became clogged for not apparent reason. Epsoin support will replace the printer, but the hassle is not worth the purchase. The actual quality of the printer and the prints are fantastic.

loyality

By Mr Bill

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

Through the years I have used only Epson printers, upgrading as newer advances and added ease of use has been presented. The Artisan 50 is my latest printer. I have used it with great satisfaction. Epson is the only printer I have found that enables me to print both the covers and discs of the media that I make for the MC I ride with (Bikers For Christ). I document all our functions and make them available to our members. The quality I get from my Artisan 50 gives a professional look to my work.

Totally Great

By T. Rex

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

I have worn out two Epson Photo Stylus R200 printers and was delighted with the quality of the prints. The only problem was that the sheet feed mechanism started giving serious problems. I was able to fix this ( somewhat) and keep them working far beyond their expected lifetime. Then I got an Epson Artisan 50. Wow! This is so much faster than the R200s that it thrills me every time I use it. And, if anything, the picture quality is even better. I also like the software improvements.

Happy

By Bill

from Boston, MA

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

I had one of Epson's early photo printers, the R200. It was a great dependable printer that turned out perfect photos. Lasted 9 trouble free years. I wanted a similar non-all in one printer and settled on the Artisan 50. I am running Vista 64 bit. The included driver didn't take so I had to download an updated one from Epson. That went smoothly. Then the moment of truth. I selected one of my better photo's and clicked PRINT. WOW. Excellent pro looking photo. Now if this printer will just last 9 years like the last one.

Artisan 50

By waynelr

from Maplewood, MN

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

This printer does a beautiful job on color prints and handles CDs or DVDs reasonably. The DVD capability is the reason I bought it and it delivers. It will require restarting when errors happen and is expensive to maintain the ink supply. If you want low cost and high volume this is not your printer of choice.

Epson Artisan 50

By KPKCB

from Bridgewater Virginia

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

This is a product that meets my needs for a printer that will do a variety of sizes and types of papers. Last Christmas I never knew if the cards I design and sell were going to jam the Epson I used then, or if the printer would simply quit. Regular paper went through without a problem. Epson makes good products, and this Christmas my cards on rag paper came through without hesitation. A great Christmas. My other Epson is now hooked up to my laptop and I will use it wirelessly.

on discs

By johnd

from belton,tx

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

when printing on discs it will work fine for awhile the come up with error lites. have to fool around with it for a few min. go thru trouble shooting. then start all over from the beginning. pretty hard on ink too. I only print in black but it uses all the colors to do that. so you have to replace them all. not cheap to do. phone help is good.

Printer roller marks

By Stardancer

from Gates Mills, OH

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

I bought this printer because I heard it was good for printing greeting cards. I have square images and use square cards from another company. At the time they were the only glossy square cards to be found.When I use them there are printer roller marks on the images. That really bothers me. So I end up printing my square cards on the Epson 2880.

Very Satisfied

By Satisfied

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

This is my 2nd Artisan 50 (no problem with the 1st one I just wore it out). The print quality is great and the software allows for adjustments. I shoot with an SLR camera and use Photoshop Elements. I've used Epson printers since back in the dot matrix days and have never been disappointed.

Great printer

Comments about Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer:

Excellent photo printing. And the ink seems to be lasting a lot longer than I anticipated which is great! All around the best photo printer I have owned.
