My C88+ was the third Epson I've owned. It was 2 years old and the C88 [at about 18 months] both shut down on an "end-of-expected-life" error message - - and both became immediately useless. This time it was VERY FRUSTRATING because I was in the middle of a lengthy business document and it left me with unfinished work. If Epson is going to limit the lifetime, how about also including a warning of pending "end-of-life." One other item, earlier models had the option of a “standard capacityâ€� black ink cartridge or a “high capacityâ€� black ink cartridge. This was eliminated on the C88+ model; a very unfriendly consumer decision by Epson because â€" guess what, MOST print work is in BLACK. PS: The high capacity black ink for the C88 WILL work in the C88+, it does not fit well and a little force must be use â€" but it does work. [I had left over unopened High Capacity cartridges when the C88 failed and tried one just to see if it would work â€" and it did.]

I'm a long time Epson user and fan. Generally, I feel good about recommending their products that products that I've used to others.
However, I've got really mixed feelings about the C88+. I purchased one to replace a C80 that died. On the plus side, it's faster, less expensive, less prone to streaking when left to sit a long time between print jobs, seems to print photos better.
On the negative side, it seems to go through consumables faster -- probably the downside of self cleaning that reduces streaking, and also a result of the fact that the black cartridge is no longer larger than the color ones. And most annoyingly, the paper handling is awful. I rarely print a multi-page job without getting blank pages where multiple pieces of paper are pulled in. The slightest crease or wrinkle produces jams, tears or smudged output. And finally, the output tray is shorter, often resulting on output on the floor.

I ONLY BUY THIS PRINTER

By 

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

When I bought my first printer about ten years ago, I bought an Epson C88. Since the C88+ printer has replaced them, this has been the only printer I buy. It does what I need it to do and since I am familiar with the features, I never have to learn how to use another printer! I do NOT want to replace this with any other printer ever and, though they don't seem to last much longer than just a few months beyond the manufacturing warranty, at least I have some idea when I will need to replace it. I LOVE the fact that the ink cartridges are separate, so I need to only replace ink that I've run out of. I also rely on the fact that this printer gives me fair warning of when I am close to running out, so I can reorder before I have no more ink. I don't need fax or scanning features, so I like not having to deal with or buy all these extra bells and whistles that I don't need. I do some printing of photos, and so far this printer has been adequate for my personal needs. In short, I hope you never discontinue this product or fiddle around with it's features. There are times when it would be handy to have 2-sided printing capabilities, but I will gladly forego this type of feature for the benefits of using this printer. If Epson ever wants to "upgrade" the features of the C88+, I hope they will just make a new printer with the extra features WITHOUT discontinuing the C88+. I consider it a classic, like Classic Coke. Don't mess around with something that works so well at doing what it does! I very much appreciate the fact that, though it is time consuming to install any new printer, being able to work on an ongoing basis with the same printer model, year after year, helps me a great deal and reduces the guesswork, stress, time, and hassles involved in learning how to install and use a new product. And it doesn't take up a lot of space. Thanks to Epson for continuing to manufacture this wonderful printer!

disappointed

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

I bought this in January. I have now replaced it because the print quality had gotten so bad. Repeated head cleanings did not work, and I finally gave up. I had the same problem with the last one I had, but at least it lasted almost three years. I don't know if this is a trend, but this is easily the worst one of these has performed for me. I have owned at least 15 of this model over the last 20 years, so I have the history to support my disappointment.

This is a solid and versatile printer, which can handle a variety of tasks well. One disadvantage is that it cannot be connected wirelessly.

Best basic printer on the market

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

I've used the C88 printer series since it replaced the 60 series. the only complaint I have is duty cycle in that when it decides it's done it starts flashing lights and quits. We replace at least one every year due to our printing apparently wearing out the printer page count.

last GOOD, single function ink jet printer

By 

from Lexington, VA, United States

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

Excellent color inkjet. This is my second C88+. First one failed due to serious jam caused by MY neglecting to open output door.(!) Essential to monitor placement of paper, to avoid ordinary jams. Would be helpful if could release roller pressure when attempting to extract jammed paper. If scraps missed are likely to jam mechanism which essentially kills printer because must be disassembled.( Not for the timid!!) Would welcome an updated version of this single function color printer. Willing to pay 20% extra for following improvements: Roller release Interlock to prevent printing if doors not open Drivers, for 64 OS. (Must use Win 7 default drivers only.)

Second Time is a Charm

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

I had to get this printer twice because the first one didn't work right. I'm also unhappy that the printer doesn't come with all the cords you'll need - I had to supply some of my own. But after getting my own cord and the second machine, so far it's working well.

I have been using this model printer for several years and it's a pretty good road warrior! I love the bright colors! I use the C88+ in my Agricultural Land Surveying business. It's absolutely essential that I be able to carry a color ink jet printer in my pickup truck! I'm very pleased that Epson has continued to manufacture this model as it fits my business very well!!!!

Not for Windows 10

By 

from Eugene, OR, United States

Comments about Epson Stylus C88+ Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

We have had problems with this printer from the beginning (some 5 years ago). It does not share well over a home LAN. It does not seem to be able to be used with Windows 10 at all unless you can connect it with a parallel port (which eliminates laptops). If you can get it to work the print is clear and photos are as good as you can hope for with a printer for under a thousand dollars. The unavailability of decent drivers for the LAN or for Windows 10 (only m series shows up on the list), however makes it a piece of junk. Buy a different more up-to-date product.

I have bought several of these printers because they are easy to use. However, for some reason, they don't last more than 6 months. It is a nuisance to have to replace them so often. I need to replace one again today, but am giving up. I am not going to buy one anymore.

The Epson C88+ is a great printer, but I can not get the exact blue that I want. I'm guessing because I am using sublimation ink. Great printer and simple to use!
