Comment:
I am very disapointed in this printer. I have followed instructions multiple times and cannot get<br />lines out of pics. First nothing printed! Then slowly after several cleaning modes, a picture appeared, but with lines! I am furious. This is only the 2nd time I have used this thing.....Paid over $300.00 for it! I want a refund.
How long have you owned it:

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!!!!!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
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.
