The Tech Zone heeft een review online geplant van de Epson Stylus Photo 1200. $500 Dollar is veel geld voor een printertje, maar hij schijnt zijn werk wel erg goed te doen:
The quality of the prints made by the EPSON Stylus Photo 1200 is simply amazing. You really can't tell the difference between its printouts and that of a real photo if you use special EPSON photo quality glossy paper or other photo quality paper.
Running at 1440 x 720 dpi slows the printer down considerably. While at normal 720 x 720 dpi, an 8 x 10 takes just 2 minutes to print, it slows down to over 10 minute when I increase the resolution to 1440 x 720 dpi. However the output quality has to be seen to be believed!
Under normal operation, you can get over 300 prints (8x10) before you have to change the ink cartridges. However, this figure is a bit misleading because it's based on only 15% ink coverage and 320 x 320 dpi resolution. A normal photo consumes nearly 100% of the paper surface and running at super high resolution consumes way more ink. I had to change the color cartridge after only 30 full coverage high resolution 8 x 10 photos. The black cartridge was down to the half way mark. Considering that an ink cartridge cost $40 to change, this brings the cost of each photo to over $1 each, plus the cost of the photo paper which can cost up to $1 each depending of the paper you chose. Still $2 for a high quality 8 x 10 photo is not a big price to pay when you consider it would cost you more to get an 8 x 10 reprint at the local photomart.
