I have a EPSON Stylus COLOR 500 at home, and it is just *wonderful*! ^_^
I love it! And the EPSON Stylus COLOR 800 is even better, faster, and
prettier! ^_^ I highly recommend EPSON Stylus COLOR 800! ^_^
(BTW, "EPSON Stylus 800" without the word "COLOR" was an old black and
white version. Don't get them mixed up. ^_^)
Ghostscript 4.03 and 5.0x both work well with EPSON Stylus COLOR 800. In
Ghostscript 5.0x, it supports 1440x720dpi printing too. The print quality
is excellent under both Windows 95 and Debian GNU/Linux. Colour is really
nice too! ^_^
