With support for media from poster board to printable CDs, the Epson Stylus Photo RX980 inkjet printer has an impressive range. It can output up to 9 pages per minute for text documents, and a 4x6-inch photo in around 50 seconds. Individual Epson RX980 printer ink supplies also have large capacities that keep the machine cost effective to operate.
The RX980 inkjet definitely skews toward the photo printing side of things, with features like BorderFree printing at common photo sizes. As mentioned, it supports a variety of media types, including several kinds of photo paper, card stock, transparencies, and even CDs and DVDs. It can hold a maximum of 100 sheets of plain paper, or 10 envelopes. Included on the disc is Epson's Film Factory software, which can help users edit and enhance images for better print results.
Although it is designed for home use, some users may find the model's size a little unruly. It measures 19.4x21.5x11.9 inches when printing, though it does slim down a bit for storage. Even with the Stylus Photo RX980 ink supplies installed, however, it still only weighs a little over 15 pounds, so users won't have any trouble moving it around or setting it up.
Not only does the printer ink system consist of 6 colors for better photo quality, but it uses individual Epson RX980 ink cartridges. This means Stylus Photo RX980 ink cartridges can be replaced separately, reducing waste. Remanufactured Epson RX980 ink is also available, saving users money compared to the more expensive OEM supplies.
The RX980 won't be a good solution for general office printing, but for high-quality photo output at home, it's tough to beat for the price. It won't win awards for its output speed, but its versatile media handling, large-capacity supplies and border-free printing are all great reasons to give it a look.
