Epson L1300 Printer Driver Download. My Canon printer died at the age of 7! Well, actually only the scanner, but it is unusable for me. I have never printed much with it, but it has consumed so much expensive ink during constant cleaning that I have refill cartridges installed and filled. Then I had to scrub my hands mostly with a pumice stone in the direction of piggy pink ... I was fed up with this mess and therefore wanted to buy a color laser printer - although these are still not supposed to be really good for photo printing.
In the search for a suitable model, I came across the EPSON ET-4750, I did not know that there are now reasonably affordable printer with ink tanks. And even better, it is almost a liter of printer ink divided into black and color included. I've always said that I would spend more on a printer if the associated ink were available at reasonable prices. So I thought a little bit again, searched, read reviews and compared. There, this printer comes away pretty well, photos should be supposed to make a few drawbacks. Although he has an ADF (document feeder), but this work is not double-sided - you have to turn the paper by hand if necessary. It's supposed to be very serious, but in the last 20 years I've never needed this feature before,

So the decision was made after some time, I ordered the printer and after two days I had the good piece on the desk. At first I admired the compact design, my old Canon MP830 was a lot more bulky. The connection was super easy, plug in power cable, network cable turn off (USB or Wi-Fi would also go) and ready. Before turning it on, I filled in the ink, as directed. Epson did not promise too much, it does not splash anything, it does not work, you can not let the colors run in the wrong tanks (each bottle fits only the right tank) and the fingers stay absolutely clean. When filling, there will be a small amount of ink left in the bottles, which can be tipped after the printer has completed the initial filling of the printheads after switching it on.
The printer comes with two complete sets of printer ink, but I wanted to know if the original ink would be very expensive later. Again, I was pleasantly surprised, a bottle of color ink (70 ml) actually only costs around 7.00 euros, the black ink (125 ml) is about 10.00 euros. This is extremely clear, there is no longer worth third-party ink and you are on the safe side because of the guarantee. Incidentally, there is also a replaceable with a few handles residual ink tank, which costs less than 10 euros. Thus, the usual expensive service case falls off due to fully saturated residual ink sponges.
Only after filling the installation wizard of the supplied CD is started. This searches and finds the printer, installs drivers, software and manuals, with me even the firmware of the printer was automatically updated. Then you can still control the printhead alignment on the printer and adjust exactly if necessary. It's easy with a few test prints and questions that need to be answered on the printer's touch screen. I skipped the FAX facility, I do not need that at the moment.
So, now to print: The expression of colorful and black and white documents is fast and beyond any doubt. I'm sure experts with magnifying glass and microscope can find quality differences to other printers, but I, as a normal mortal, found the prints outstanding. Then I printed out a photo on normal plain paper, which looked as if it was gruesome. The same expression on glossy photo paper was absolutely outstanding! I did not expect that, even on the first try, the picture came just as the printer, as it looked on the screen and in Natura too.
That's never happened to my old printers, I'm thrilled! So far, it has always been a miserable fumbling with the color matching to something reasonably useful crawled out of the unit. In the test reports they write here and there that the high-quality color printing is a bit slow and that the quality is only about 70 percent. Better would be the photo printer with pigment ink from the same series, but they do not offer all the features that I want.
I can not fault the photo print, the quality can definitely keep up with everything I've seen so far. You could even print out a photo book yourself instead of having it done by CEWE and others. I'll probably get a binding system.
When you print photos of the highest quality, they are not just shot out of the printer, but that's the case with most devices in this price range. Whether it is a few seconds faster or slower, but I do not care - I hear, yes, when the expression is finished. The slightly thicker photo paper was pulled without grumbling from the lower paper drawer.
Remains to say that the document feeder works well. What's nice is that if you do not need it, you just turn it over. So there is no dust in and the resulting flat surface can serve as a small storage. Some people complain that there are problems with bumpy or glued templates, I say: Just do not put something in your printer!
I also like the uncomplicated connection of my Android phone. After loading the Epson iPrint app, I could easily print from my phone or scan documents. There are more features that I have not tried all yet.
Epson L1300 DriversSo far, I am completely satisfied and would recommend the device without hesitation. If something changes in my experience / opinion, there is an addendum.
Addendum after half a year:
I'm still very satisfied, everything works. My old inkjets have almost always started long cleaning sprees before my occasional prints, which annoyed me miserably. The Epson does not do that and the ink does not dry up anyway. So the ink level after half a year has sunk only as far as I would expect by the number of my printouts.
