The Epson Stylus Photo 700 (or 700c) is a compact and affordable inkjet printer with solid print quality, but print speeds are very slow, at around 3.5 pages per minute. Its 6-color printing technology adds more accurate color but makes Epson 700 ink much more expensive than the printer ink of competing models.
The unit has a paper capacity of 100 pages, which some might find limiting. It has only parallel and serial connections, which can be problematic for modern computers that support neither of these options. A parallel or USB adapter can be used, however. The software disc includes Epson Digital Photo Lab, which is a suite of applications for handling and editing your photos. Setup is quick and easy, and the software walks the user through the process nicely.
Epson 700 ink uses a 6-color printer ink system of cyan, magenta, yellow, light-cyan, light-magenta and black. While the extra colors in Epson Stylus Photo 700 ink cartridges improve color accuracy and balance, they also make the cost of replacing printer ink much higher. As a result Epson Stylus Photo 700 ink cartridges are some of the most expensive in its class.
User reviews of the Epson 700 inkjet unit are quite positive. Many reviewers praise its excellent quality and color richness. A few reviewers remarked on the quality of Epson support. Some complained of its very slow printing speeds.
Overall, the Epson 700 offers excellent print quality, but its very slow printing speeds make it difficult to recommend when compared to much faster machines. The high cost of printer ink also makes it expensive to operate.
