Review of the Epson Stylus 860 printer

With print speeds of 9.5 pages per minute for black and 7 pages per minute for color, the Epson Stylus Color 860 is the high point of technologies integrated with the Stylus 800 series. This ultimate version is characterized by laser sharp black text as well as color prints with photo quality. There are more than a couple of software installed which include eFax, ArcSoft Photo Printer, and Polaroid PhotoMAX Pro SE. The maximum resolution of 1440 x 720 dpi is supported by nozzle configuration of 144 for mono heads and 48 x 3 for color. The paper capacity is constant with the series at 100 sheets for plain paper. The same two ink cartridges are in use with models such as T052 for color and T051 for black. There are generic ink cartridges available at Peachtreeink.com which are affordable and of excellent quality.

For the interface, USB and parallel are standard with the unit with external Ethernet printer server as optional.

Working with software drivers such as MS Windows versions and Mac OS, setup and installation would be just like a walk in the park.
