For homes looking for a compact easy to use printer, the Epson C44 could be a great place to look. With a small weight of only 9 pounds, it will be easy to move around the house if needed. Not only does it offer USB connection, but it is Windows and Mac compatible as well.
Using two Epson C44 ink cartridges filled with tricolor and black printer ink, this inkjet unit has the ability to print on media types such as plain paper, transparencies, iron-on transfers, photo paper, cards and glossy photo film. The speeds are slightly disappointing; printing only 11 pages per minute using exclusively black Stylus C44 ink, and using the color printer ink, only 5 pages per minute can be printed. This won't get users very far and the neither will the small capacities of the Stylus C44 ink cartridges. The black and tricolor ink yield only 220 pages and 190 pages, respectively.
The highest resolution possible is 2880x720 dpi. This resolution will give users decent quality, but nothing special. The low yielding ink makes this printer only suitable for home offices with very small monthly capacities.
Though there have been some good reviews when it comes to the Stylus C44 inkjet printer, for the most part, user reviews are negative. Low yielding and somewhat expensive Epson C44 ink has been complained about often, and paper jams are another concern. Many have found that the Epson C44 ink tanks are harder to find than competitive products too. They also complain that printheads and cartridges clog much too frequently, making it hard to rely on the printer. It is both slow and quite loud, according to consumers, which are both road blocks when it comes to at-home printing. On the other side of things though, users tend to love the photo quality and inexpensive price of the unit.
