My wife fortunately won this Epson T10 printer over a raffle in their Christmas party last December 2009. We utilize it only this May 2010, because we are still using our old HP printer, we only decided to use T10 when our HP printer runs out of ink.
At first I thought we would be able to save expenses for ink since this printer offers a newer technology and the ink cartridges are sold separately meaning we would only replace the cartridge that we frequently use, also as stated on its box it prints faster with 22 pages per minute. The printing characteristics was OK but I should say after I print 35 pages term paper the low ink signal begun to blink and it showed a warning that black ink was about to run out. Comparing to our HP printer I think this Epson model is inferior because in our HP printer even if I print as many as 50 pages it won’t run out of ink that easily. Also what I noticed about this printer is that it is very noisy during the printing process. I’ve printed 26 pages and it consumed around 20 minutes so also the 22 pages per minute is not true. The ink cartridges can be sold by set for P1360 (all four colors) but if you’re going to buy individual cartridge it would cost P500 each. The ink cartridge price is similar to our old HP printer but HP prints many pages than this Epson T10.
Enough of this negative feedbacks, Epson T10 also has its good side it has a program that if the black ink will soon be ran out it would ask the user if he/she would allow the printer to mix all other remaining color to create a composite black. For me this characteristic is somehow unique with Epson so at least there is one good side. Good thing we only acquire it through raffle because if I’m the one who bought it and we had this experience, I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself. Can you tell something about your printer.
