The Epson Stylus C61 doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it is a fairly simple photo inkjet printer that provides good output quality. Its speeds are adequate for basic printing, at up to 14 pages per minute, though higher quality settings will decrease the speed significantly. A4 photos print in around 168 seconds, for example. Epson C61 printer ink tends to be pricey and run out fast.
The C61 has the front output design of many consumer devices, with a single input tray that extends upward from the back, and can hold up to 100 sheets of plain paper. This tray folds down for storage, but might attract a lot of dust if left up and loaded with paper. A wide variety of media are supported, including glossy photo paper, heavyweight, transparencies, and more.
Users have the option of connecting via parallel or USB port, but no sharing via ethernet or wireless is included. Given that the device can only handle small volumes, however, this is not surprising. PhotoQuicker software can help users get better results when printing photos, with multiple editing capabilities and an intuitive design that can cater to beginners and advanced users alike.
User reviews note that printer ink is expensive, and the prices for Epson C61 ink certainly bear this out. The black Stylus C61 ink cartridge has a yield of up to 600 pages, and the combined color Epson C61 ink cartridge can last for up to 420 pages. According to user reviews, however, the actual usage is generally much shorter, but choosing compatible Stylus C61 ink may help.
The photo quality of the C61 is impressive, and support of many media types and the inclusion of photo software help users get the best results. Unfortunately, the high cost of Epson C61 ink makes it suitable for only occasional use.
