Weighing only 9 pounds, the Epson Stylus C42UX inkjet printer is a convenient machine made for home offices. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, and it connects via USB making it easy to use for most home users. It even is compatible with a lot of media types like transparencies, iron-on transfers, plain paper, photo paper, cards and glossy photo film. The C42UX is also easy to set up and use. Where it falls short, however, are its speeds and quality, which both tend to be less impressive than most of the competition on the market, and the Epson C42UX ink cartridges are somewhat expensive.
Two Stylus C42UX ink cartridges will be needed for standard printing, and both tanks of printer ink come with the unit upon purchase. The black and color ink have page yields of 180 and 220 pages, respectively. The page yields of these tanks of Epson C42UX ink are a little smaller than others on the market, so new tanks will need to be purchased often.
Remanufactured versions, however, are available for a fraction of the price. Using the remanufactured Stylus C42UX ink will definitely give buyers a better bang for their buck and will be much more affordable in the long run. It won't matter that users will need to purchase Epson C42UX ink more often than a few newer printers if the prices are low!
User reviews of the Epson Stylus C42UX inkjet printer are mixed. Though, some consumers constantly complain about the slow speeds and poor quality, others praise it for being a fast unit with exceptional quality. Multiple people have complained about its noisy nature and large size too, but some find it to be a perfect fit for home offices. Users also say if used sporadically, the Epson C42UX ink can last for months, making it a smart and economical buy.
