Epson RX680: Print GREAT in 2008!



Business owner, kindergarten room mom, pre-school treasurer, shutter bug... I do a lot of printing! I've gone though SEVERAL printers in the past few years and I have to say, I've come across what I think is cream of the crop. The Epson RX680, has it all. It prints, copies, scans, and is also a photo printer.

What sets the RX680 apart is that it's an Ultra High Definition Printer. Yes, a Hi Def printer. This thing has so many bells and whistles, I don't even know where to start. In fact, I've been wanting to write this review for so long, (I started using the printer about 2 months ago), but really I don't even know where to start! The thing is a speed demon when it comes to printing. It can print a 4 x 6 photo in 11 seconds and prints text up to 40 pages per minutes, yes I said 40! The quality of the printing is amazing too. The Epson RX680 uses Ciaria high definition ink. It is smudge, scratch, water and fade resistant. I absolutely love that the ink colors are individual. With the printers I've had in the past, I know I've wasted ink, if the blue is gone, you have to replace the entire color cartridge. With this printer, when the blue is gone, you replace the blue, simple.

The photo printing options are truly amazing. You don't even need a computer to use it. You can stick your media card directly into the unit and crop, resize, edit, and then preview before printing. You can even restore old photos! One of my absolute favorite features is that the Epson RX680 can print directly on to CD's. I keep all of my photos organized on CD's and I'm always messing with CD labels. I have wasted so many, they never line up right when printing, then when they do, they're hard to stick on the CD without creases. WELL....this problem is gone. Stick a printable CD in the CD print tray and the printer will print the design directly to the CD. It's fantastic!

As far as regular day to day printing goes, this thing holds it's own. There are two fully adjustable paper trays that hold a total of 270 sheets. There's also a built in auto duplexer, so it's super easy to do double sided printing. I'm telling you, I could go on and on. I won't though, because it's time for you to stop reading and visit the Epson site to buy your own RX680. There's just one more thing you need to know, the most important thing that is, the price! The Epson RX680 is available directly from Epson and is only $129.99 after $70 in instant rebates. Another bonus, free shipping! I'm telling you, you can't go wrong with this printer, so visit Epson today and make it your resolution to print great in 2008!
