Hate the Epson 300 printer. It is suppose to print 150 pictures and only prints 100 if even that. I went to a satisfaction page on Epson and they wanted me to send a copy of my receipt and part of the box (who keeps those things, not me). I have 2 full unopened packs, that's 300 pictures I have not even printed. Guess I'll start keeping my boxes and receipts. I called the support desk only to be directed to Manila. I spoke with 2 individuals who could not help me. I have to call back tomorrow to speak to someone in the United States! My pictures print out way too dark no matter how much I lighten then up on my screen they are almost washed out and they still turn out too dark. I've been very disappointed in this product!!!!!

Disappointing and expensive
Easy To Use
Pricey Ink Replacement
Slow Print Time
Too much ink used
Black & White Photos
I use it to print family and travel photos. It has been very disappointing because the colors are way off, with a strong blue cast and no yellows. The supplied manual does not address this problem.
