      I have had My Epson Stylus colour 670 for a few years now and it is still going strong.
      It was cheap to buy and is cheap to run. It may not be as modern or as versatile as other printers but its print quality is up there with more expensive models. Mine came with printer, power cable, instructions 1x lot of ink and software for setting up and various other added extras including photo editing, Etc.
      As like all, other printers, it does not come with the usb cable.
      For its class it is quite versatile, I have done normal household printing, coupons, greeting cards, etc. but photo printing is a little outside its capabilities.
      The ink cartridges are cheaper than average, both Epson and other manufacturers.
      Setting up was quick and easy toI do, simply follow the on screen instructions and you are quickly ready to go.
      I have found that the printer can get a little confused at times, when it goes into printing gobbledygook mode. I simply turn it off and on again, I am no techy, so this may well be my laptop or software.
      Before I forget to mention it, it has 1x USB connection and 1x parallel connector..
      The printers screen will give you various indications, including ink level, faults, etc. This is a printer for normal home use, not a home business printer.
      Most of my results using this printer have been pretty consistent and it has given me a few years of good service.
      This is a good value for money printer for home use which gives you a pretty good quality print out for a good price.

      Good value for money.

      A truly amazing Printer. I had brought it back in 2001 and excluding some minor wear and tear and servicing, it is still working as good at new. The Print Quality is up there with some of the newer printers, such as the Epson DX6000 and it is very small and light. However the printing speed can be a bit dissapointing, even in USB mode and the printer is not USB 2.0 compatible, which is to be expected considering its age. It also supports a wide range of special media and a nice sample pack is included in the box!.
      The ink sensors are a bit dodgy in my specimen (I am not sure if this defect is unique to my printer only or all of them), so I recommend you remove and then insert the same cartridge again if the ink is reported low prematurely unless the print quality has visibly declined.

      Pros:
      Cheap
      Reliable
      Lots of Media (Creative possiblities are Large)
      Easy to Use and setup (for windows xp and older)
      Parrallel connection for older computers as well as USB

      Cons:
      Hard to find Vista/ Windows 7 drivers for 64-bit computers
      Slow printing speed (compared to modern printers)
      dodgy ink sensors

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      when I first bought my PC I decided to go for Epson because I though it was a reliable brand and also the ink cartridsges were not as expensive as Hewlett Packard printers. This printer could print up to 1440 DPI in colour and black and white. Could print on a wide range of paper including photo paper, special transfers for clothing etc. It had only a port for a parallel cable but you could convert it to run of a USB port only if you purchased a conversion cable. This printer was easy to install with a special getting started instruction booklet and a hardcopy of instructions rather than just on a cd-rom disk. One thing that I noticed about this printer was that it was very noisey when you first turned it on and also when it began printing. My current printer (HP) is very silent when it prints and does not warm up umless it begins printing. With the epson model every time you switch the PC on it always has to clean the heads even if you were not printing. The printing quality on the other hand was very good the letters on pages was very sharp and the speed for printing draft documents was very fast and had the option for different qualities of printing on the driver software. The driver sofdtware for using the printer was easy to use and had many options avaiable like scaling the size of the document to fit onto one pages, print preview so you know how the page will look like before you print it. Also it had an ink level indicator that showed you how much ink you had left but as other people have mentiond in their op's that it was not always as accurate and sometimes would think the cartidges was full when it was empty! However I was very disappointed when I went to print off a document one afternoon and the paper came out of the machine just as bank as it when in. I went out to the computer store and bought a new black and a new colour ink cratridge. I put them in and then tried to print
      again and the same thing happend the printer head moved from side to side over the page but again the paper came out blank. So after I had spent ages cleaning the print heads I finally relised it had seen better days and I should just buy another one and I did. I sold the old epson 670 for spares and repairs over the internet for £10 Don't know what happended to it after that but I decided it would not buy epson again.

        I bought the Epson Stylus color 600 when it first came out several years ago. I chose it because at the time it was one of the best injet printers around and it was reasonably priced. I found it to be a very good printer. It is quite fast and has excellent print quality in both colour and black and white. It can also print out excellent photos if you use the special paper for Epson printers. It is easy to maintain and warns you in advance of any print problems, e.g low ink, low paper, etc. The only bad thing about it is it is quite noisy, but for it's price it is suitable for anyone who needs a simple, easy to use printer for general use.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        The Epson Stylus Colour 670 is a budget priced printer, a fact that actually deters some people. However, it's performance is far from budget and is an excellent choice for anyone considering a new printer. The average user would run the printer at the normal fast pace which provides a very good result and will serve for most purposes. If , however, you wish to print photographs, then running the machine at it's slowest speed will produce excellent quality. There are many printers on sale at far higher prices and of higher quality, but unless you use your printer for professional photography or something of similar demand then you are unlikely to be able to tell the difference in the results. As with most of the sensibly designed printers, the ink cartridges are separate for black and colour, so you do not need to replace the colour when the black expires. Nevertheless, it can prove expensive if you use a lot of ink.

          Now everbody thinks when buying a computer, they should automaticly buy a Hewlet Packard Printer. Now this is not true. Epsons are truely the best. This is why 1.) Epsons provide the best print quality. 2.) The Cartridges are cheaper. 3.) They cost less to fix if thinks go wrong. 4.) Additionall features are much cheaper. Yes the printer itself may be dearer, but overall you get the better deal. Pay that little bit extra and have peice of mind that you won't have to keep constantly worrying about your printer. So don't go and buy a rubish companies printer, just buy this one and I guarantee you will be happy for years to come.

          Disadvantages

          When I finally lost my temper and threw my printer across the room I knew that I had to replace it with another. The olivetti JP 192, that I had originally was extremely hard to find replacement cartridges for locally, and very expensive too! So before I bought a new printer, I telephoned all the computer shops in my area to find out who sold the cartridges for the 2 printers that I could choose from in Littlewoods Catalogue. I finally chose the Epson Stylus Colour 670 because my friends said they could be trusted and they seemed a popular choice in the shops. The printer is bigger than my last one, but at least the paper feed works. It loves to give you information on screen. It actually shows you how much ink is left in yopur cartridges each and every time you print. It is my HERO! Well it saved my life any way!!`

            With an Epson printer i think of it as quality at a low price though like all inkjet printers the actual hardware seems a bargain but you try buying the consumables (ink)!. Now this is where you are always caught out when buying any inkjet printers and this is something that needs to be considered as if you print a lot of work maybe you should invest in a laser (i would sugest the Brother 1250 @ around £250 for a basic one). Saying that though Epson printers have a great reputation with printing things such as photo's so if you need to print out quality photo's and a laser is out of the question then get an Epson and this one is good value.

            This is an inexpensive printer for the home user, but still provides adequate print quality for all but the most demanding photo packages. It's my 1st printer and although it's not as fast as some of the more expensive units that I've used in my working and professional life, I've been very impressed with its ease of use. The instructions and software provided make it so easy to set up and use, and it even comes with a disc of sample photos, and "Custom Photo" software from Corel. A GREAT printer for the price.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            The Stylus Color 670 printer is part of the Epson range and if you’re on the lookout for a printer it’s definitely worth a second look. I have this printer and I can’t fault it. Apart from looking quite stylish, Epson gets the job done with ease whatever it may be. It has many different settings which enable you to monitor or adjust the printing settings simply, quickly and whenever you want. This printer comes with a software CD Rom and is installed easily onto your system. With this printer you can also use different dpi’s for different printing purposes for example you may wish to increase it if you want to print out a photo on photo quality paper. The paper is just glossier than usual paper. The settings allow you to print out in colour or black and white. You can alter the half-toning, the saturation, brightness and contrast of the coloured inks. There are streams of features for all your computering needs and wants. You can even when printing a sequence of documents decide which order you want them printed in. You then have the facilities to monitor the consumables (level of ink left in each cartridge), there’s a nozzle check, head cleaning and head alignment. All these functions help to keep this Epson 640 running smoothly. Well I haven’t any complaints. There are light indicators on the printer itself also which indicate when there’s no paper left, the cartridges have run out and there’s a power led showing when the printer’s on and off. You have a power button, a paper feed button and an extra button needed for cleaning the ink jets. This printer is well worth the money and will last you a fair while. The ink cartridges will sponge more money out of you than the printer. They’re about £20 each and you need two, a black one and a colour. That’s the only thing however they’re no more expensive than any other printer inks. Brilliant for all home or work
            tasks and can easily be connected up with a scanner. Top knotch!

            Disadvantages

            This is a printer for a family with no real computer needs rather than a printer for a serious computer user, but hell it’s not that bad. I found it the easiest printer I have ever found to install and it comes with a neat little Questions and answer Package, it was quite cheap as well at just under £100. What impresses me the most is that it has a broad range of printing settings from Economy to Photo, and actually I was very impressed with the Photo settings and compares with some of the early Hewlett Packard Printers (which are in my opinion the best around). One problem maybe that the high setting are a bit slow but the lower setting speed through, and this is common with Ink jet printers released at the same time. As it’s been written in earlier opinions the utilities are poor and ink indicators ridiculous. The ink gauge is very rarely correct and sometimes I run out of ink before I should and others I get weeks extra from those cartridges. The heads and alignment needs near constant pampering, having to use the head cleaning far too often (using up that ink as well as my time), however the printer was cheap and the cartridges are fairly cheap too. I reckon this is a good printer for families or people who don’t need to rely on printing.

            I have had this printer for some time now and I have really given it some hammer! I do an awful lot of printing including some for friends business and I have always been plaesed with the results. I do a fair bit of desktop publishing and so long as you get the right sort of print media it gives excellent results. I do find though, that to get a good photo print you do need the proper paper. It seems to be fairly economical in comparison with other inkjets, and the only downside I can think of is that it can be a bit on the noisy side, but I think the advantages far outweigh this minor disadvantage.

            The Epson Stylus color 670 is a brilliant printer for the money, it prints out in good color and quality and quite quickely. You can buy this in two different connections, serial and USB (Universal serial bus) this depends on what ports your PC has, if it does have USB then buy the printer in USB because the connection establishment is a lot quicker and good quality.I just baught this printer in USB and i am very plaesed with it. It has done the job very well. This printer is for home use and don't get it for work business because the quality isn't that good. I recomend this printer to people that don't need absolutely stunning quality but for homework and personel use.

            I have had this printer for quite a while now. I found it very easy to set up and install, the instructions were very clear and it came with an eccellent manual which was full of helpfull advice on getting the best from your printer. I have found a couple of problems with mine, the nozzles seem to need cleaning very often, which uses up a lot of ink and the ink level indicator is not very accurate. This second problem could lead you to purchase a new ink cartridge when you still have plenty left in the old one. I have put back in a cartridge which the level indicator had as empty and had another two or three weeks of printing out of it!! The quality is very good, I use mine for printing out business cards, restaurant menus, compliments slips etc which have to be of very high quality and this printer always does the job. I have also printed photos on mine, on photo paper they are almont indistinguishable from 'real' photos, no problems there. All in all this is a good value printer which is suitable for general use at home or in a small business.

              This printer has a labeled 1440x720 dpi printing resolution which is pretty high. It does well on general text and low quality photo printing. But when compared with a HP printer, the photo quality is not as nice on this epson even though the HP does not have as high a DPI. Plus, it is a bit noisy when printing. I also found that the print heads got clogged often especially after a few days without use. It might be the problem on mine only. Buy it only if you mainly print text with a bargin priced printer.
