Having decided to replace my ageing Canon BJC-210 my attention was drawn to the Epson 680, it has received rave reviews and with the price having dropped to less than £70 it seemed like a bargain. First impressions on getting it home were mixed, it comes with no cables (as usual), more annoyingly there is no paper pack to test out the 2880dpi it is capable of, nor is there any bundled software, though you can send off for 3 programs (from a list of about 15) which you only have to pay P&P for. Maybe looking for a paper pack and software is asking a bit too much when the price has dropped so far. The paper tray is laughably flimsy and time shall tell if it is ... Read the complete review

Having had an Epson 600 for a couple of years and installed 640s and a 440 for other folk, I have been used to the high quality of this manufacturer's machines. I could never work out how they could provide such capable printers for the price - they seemed to knock spots off the competition. Well, it seems that Epson realised they'd made a rod for their own back - they were selling them cheaply, but couldn't increase prices due the competition in the marketplace. There was no going back, but they needed a plan to increase their revenue and a way that their resellers could make a few more quid by stocking their products (there's not much dosh to ...

The Stylus Colour 680 is one of the latest printers in Epson's range and is the follow up to the Stylus 640. The design of the printer has changed quite a bit, becoming more curvy, although it has a very odd looking paper out 'tray' which is very flimsy. The 'tray' clips to the top of the printer when not in use, but it just looks odd when it's down. With both USB and parallel port interfaces this printer will connect to any recent PC, but as with all printers you don't get a cable. I find this incredibly annoying. It's a little like buying a television without an aerial lead. Neither use nor ornament. The printer drivers are ... Read the complete review

I bought my Epson Stylus Color 680 only 6 weeks ago and thought it was great. Prior to that, I'd had a Canon BJC 250 and, although it gave a reasonable quality printout, the ink cartridges were far too expensive and I always found colour prints to be very "bandy". So, along came my wonderful Epson printer and very pleased I was with it too. The print clarity was superb, it was much faster at most jobs than the Canon, and it has a super plastic flap on the front for catching the paper once it's been printed on. That is, until I recently had the misfortune of running out of black ink. The wonderful printer driver told me the black ink ... Read the complete review
