It's been several years since we've made any type of huge purchase on printer equipment. Mostly because we've had such amazing luck with our current printer. We purchased our printer a few years ago based on all the great reviews we had read on epson printers. Our Epson printer is such a work horse and never lets us down. The best part about our printer is that the price was economical and the print quality is just fantastic. I can honestly say that our next printer will be an Epson too.
