|I bought this printer as my main photo printer. It produces some amazing prints and is more than adequate for my needs. The claria ink used is of photo lab quality and will last for many years as claimed by Epson. Its got the added bonus of a scanner which I have used more than I thought I would.|
The printer has now been discontinued and the price it is offered at represents a real bargain so if you need an inexpensive but good quality photo printer I would recommend taking a look at the RX585 while its still available.

|I am extremely pleased with my Epson Rx585 printer. It does exactly what it says `on the tin`, and it is so easy to use, especially for a beginner. The C.D. printing option is excellent, and again is easy to use.|

|I wanted an all in one that printed photos and CDs as well, the Epson RX585 does that. The only criticism I have is the common one of expensive ink.|
Epson put a chip in their cartridges which tells the printer when the cartridge is empty. The compatibles I tried didnt do this so while the printer wouldnt start a page when running out of ink on genuine cartridges the compatibles would print half a page then eject the page. This meant I was saving on ink and loosing on photo paper, you just cant win. So Ive gone back to genuine cartridges. I even tried a continuous ink system and that wouldnt work either. Only other thing I would say is let the cartridge run all the way out, ignore the ink out warnings until the printer wont go any further, also try to change two or more cartridges at the same time, it will use less ink by charging only once.
Colour photos up to A4 on high quality are very good, choose a lower quality and they are acceptable so that saves a bit of ink. Ive never experienced banding that others complain about. Black and white has a slight colour cast even when choosing grey scale and still seems to use colour ink. You cant print B&W with any of the other cartridges being totally empty.

|Ive had this All-in-One for the past year and am very pleased with the ease of use and quality of prints it produces.OK so genuine Epson ink is expensive,but it produces the best results and does not clog the nozzels like cheap compatibles either!If you take the trouble to read the instructions and set it up properly,the RX585 is a dream to use!The scanner is childs play too and allows you to scan and print without bothering to turn in your computer!|

|Now my last review on a printer was shocking. It wasnt much of a printer more of a burden on my very soul. |
When last year I started my final year at uni I felt I really had to replace the Epson Stylus Photo 830U Id had for a mere year yet spent most of that time wanting to jump on it..
Naturally after my bad experience with one Epson I thought about going for a Canon and spent many hours trawling shops and websites and eventually, nearvously settled on the Epson Stylus Photo RX585 hoping Id have something that would at least work!
I have to say I love my printer. The picture quality when notched up to produce photos on good quality paper is superb, the print time is good and individual inks make it a lot more cost effective to replace cartridges. The scanning and copying functions are also superb as I am an architect I need these to be relable to scan my survey drawings and reproduce them into presentations - this printer does it with ease. I test print all my drawings on this printer and the quality even on the finest of lines is superb.
Highly valued piece of equipment, Id give away my drawing tablets before Id part company with this little baby. Buy it. It shakes a bit but hey, dont we all at this time of the morning?
