Looking for a decent or better Epson Printer Make/Model, 2-4 years old
to replace subpar performing i250canon. Already have an HP, no need to scold :) Anyone out there have/use/know of an Epson or even a Brother that's close to what I'm looking for. It must however, be
able to use 'generic' cartridges. *_*

Good Evening medallion, watch out with some of those Epsons, some have chipped cartridges and can't be refilled without a chip reset tool.
So it locks you in to the chipped type cartridges which for some odd reason are more expensive.
It is quite amazing but some Lexmark printers are actually cheaper new with two cartridges complete, than the cost of single generic Epson printer cartridge.
it certainly puts the cat amongst the pigeons.
Why buy cartridges? (Plus they print very nicely)
Best of luck in your quest, cheers qldit.

If your looking for a second hand Epson printer it might be easier if you find one then post to ask advice about it.
Also it does depend on your parameters, budget and what you want use it for ie top quality photos etc or day to day printing and average photos.
Also generic ink is crap for photos, and for that reason alone I run two Epson printers.
A stylus 880 with generic ink for day to day printing and a stylus photo R300 with genuine ink for my photos.
