Review of the Epson Stylus 480 printer and ink

Some users prefer a versatile printer that also has a copier, scanner, and fax functions. On the other hand, there are also those who would like to settle for a personal printer with single function only. This kind of simplicity can be found in the Epson Stylus 480. It is lightweight at only 6.6 lbs and has dimensions of 6.3’ in height, 8.3” in depth, and 17” in width. The unit’s simplicity is reflected on its white color and the wired connectivity only. In addition, the sole interface is a parallel port being matched with a basic ink system consisting of two ink cartridges. The original T050 black ink cartridge and T052 tri-color ink cartridge can be replaced with generic ink cartridges from Peachtree Ink having the same specifications. The comptibles work very well with this printer and there have been no problems to report when using the aftermarket variety if cheap printer ink

Unlike Epson’s cutting edge all-in-one printers, the Stylus 480 only accommodates half a dozen media types such as plain paper, photo paper, cards, transparencies, iron-on transfers, and glossy paper. With only 100 sheets of paper capacity and no networking capability, this personal printer is cashing in on its capability of producing crisp monochrome and color prints more for internal business and home use. This color inkjet may not have the latest set of software of other printers but it is consistent with the core function of printing sheets after  sheets of documents.
